MythFrontend is a MythTV frontend for Android. It supports EPG, watching live TV, recordings and videos. Compatible with MythTV backend versions 0.23, 0.24, 0.25, 0.26.

You will need a working MythTV backend configured to allow remote frontends. See http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Mythfrontend for more information regarding configuration.

For best result you will also need an installed application on your phone that can play video/mpeg. MythFrontend has a experimental internal player with native ffmpeg decoding but if not activated MythFrontend will ask your Android system to play it.

The app won't be updated anymore if no major issues are found that needs to be fixed. This is due to two major reasons;
1. There is now a official MythTV Frontend for Android
2. Due to lack of DVB-S tuner card I don't currently use MythTV

If someone wants to develop it further please contact me. I could opensource it if there is enough interrest.

    Stuck connecting to mysql server, wasn't given the opportunity to enter a server ip address and couldn't exit the app.

    This is the only one of the three MythTV frontends for Android (including the official one) that actually works reasonably well. Or for me works at all. The other ones hang or time out loading very large recordings databases (say over 2000 recordings). T

    Its ugly. No channel numbers. The EPG sucks. Recordings aren't grouped by show. Playback is 720p ish... All that being said, it works well. Seriously an eyesore though.

    It says in the update info that it now works with protocol versions 56-75, but my backend log says that it's using protocol 56 when trying to connect to my 0.26 server which uses protocol version 75. It would've been nice to be able to play live tv. I've
