I've been working on PR 126343
(http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/126343) to get MythTV
upgraded to 0.21 on FreeBSD.
At the moment, I have a port that compiles cleanly, installs, starts up
the frontend and deinstalls correctly on 7.0. Of course, whether it
will actually record TV, playback, etc. is another matter altogether. :)
Is anyone out there willing to test out the port upgrade? I have a
mini-ITX PC here that could be set up for testing, but I need to get a
capture card first, unless MythTV will work with a USB capture dongle.
In the mean time, I've placed the ports tree patch here:
If you're game, download it, cd to the top of your ports tree and run:
patch -E < /patch/download/dir/mythtv-0.21.diff
You should then remove the *.orig files in the multimedia/mythtv/files
Bug reports, port improvements and all feedback are welcome. I've also
adopted the port and hope to incorporate any suggestions sent my way.
