MythTV Go



    Play recordings from your MythTV PVR on your Android device.

    Important: MythTV 0.25 is required, as it uses the new Services API.

    * Easy to configure, can auto discover mythtv backend.
    * Can configure multiple backends (e.g. to access via ssh tunnel).
    * Recordings are shown in a list, grouped by name and recording group.
    * Recording details and preview are shown when a recording is selected.
    * Multiple transcoding profiles (Low, Medium & High quality).


    1) An external video player is currently required to play the transcoded video streams. I currently recommend vplayer or diceplayer from the Play store. The player that I used to recommend (bsplayer) no longer works.

    See my blog for some in-depth testing on video players:

    Big thanks to those who've contacted me and helped out with testing and debugging! I'd appreciate it if anyone who has problems contacts me, before giving the app a 1 star rating. It's impossible for me to test every combination of phone/Android version/MythTV setup.

    Version History:
    * Fixed crash due to running out of memory with large lists of recordings
    * Improved support for IPv6
    * Improved error messages to give more details on why backend connections have failed

    * Fixed a crash when backend doesn't respond as expected
    * Added more details in error messages (backend name, ip and port)
    * Tidied up backend preferences screen, so you can't enter multi-line name/ip addresses any more

    Note: Most of the errors I see reported now are errors connecting to the backend. Hopefully the changes above will help people to diagnose what's wrong.

    * A few bug fixes for Android 2.2 and 4
    * Backend discovery should now be more reliable
    * Added extra wifi permission for backend discovery on Android 4
    * No longer compatible with Android 1.5 for a number of reasons

    * Added option to keep or delete transcoded stream after viewing (it can be useful to keep the stream if you're going to continue watching the recording later).
    * Added automatic backend discovery. Just use the "Find" button in the Backend Preferences screen
    * Added input checking to backend preferences. Some people had added spaces etc. to the IP address which stopped it connecting to the backend.
    * Other minor bug fixes.
