MythTV setup :: xine

November 10, 2004

I don’t like not being able to see the DVD menus in mplayer, so I switched to xine.

apt-get install xine xine-lib

DVD Player Command: xine -pfhq –no-splash dvd://
Video Player Command: xine -pfhq –no-splash %s

    I tried the same thing, but when the video is done and Xine closes mythTV isn’t focused, I have to alt-tab to use mythTV again.

    Yeah, you’re probably using KDE. KDE has a focus problem after exiting xine, focus will be on the kicker. If you’re only using mythtv then switch to focus follows mouse. That should work for you. If you aren’t just using mythtv then make a new user with the focus follows mouse and use that only for myth.
