MythTV OS X 0.23-fixes Backend Builds
NOTE: I am in the middle of moving, thus builds have not been kept up to date. Weekly builds should resume around Sep 5.
LATEST BUILD (MythBackend.app App Only): MythBackend-0.23-fixes-r25260+psychos2 (Jul 04) - 118M
LATEST BUILD (Full Package): MythBackend-Full-0.23-fixes-r25260+psychos2 (Jul 04) - 444M
LATEST MYTHTV-SETUP (MythTV-Setup.app): MythTV-Setup-0.23-fixes-r25260+psychos2 (Jul 04) - 121M
Which package should I download?
Please contact me if you have any questions about what to download, or if there are any problems with the new packaging style.
- MythBackend App Only: Most users should be able to use this package; it's a much smaller download and contains the same functionality (except for MythTV-Setup; see below.) It contains the rest of the components within MythBackend.app, including mythcommflag, mythfilldatabase, mythjobqueue, and mythtranscode. If you already have a working MythTV setup and it's configured to use the included components, you can download this package instead and save yourself a bunch of space and download time. (The larger size of the "Full" version is due to duplicate versions of libraries for each separate app bundle.)
- Full Package: This contains all of the backend components as separate applications. The sole packages offered from r24740 and back were the same as the Full Package. If you're configured to launch jobs like MythCommFlag and MythFillDatabase as separate apps, you should download this package. The MythBackend.app in this package is identical to the app-only one, and contains copies of the individual components. The package also contains standalone versions of MythCommFlag.app, MythFillDatabase.app, MythJobQueue.app, MythTV-Setup.app, and MythTranscode.app.
- MythTV-Setup: For a first time installation with the App Only package, you'll also need MythTV-Setup. The Full Package already contains MythTV-Setup, so you don't need to download this if you're grabbing the Full Package. If you're updating the App Only package, you generally don't need to update the MythTV-Setup package nearly as often, unless the database protocol version changes or there's a significant bugfix (both of which will be noted here.) This package may not be updated as frequently as the others.

Changes from r25080 to r25260: Upstream changes.
Changes from r24875 to r25080: Upstream changes. Stopped packaging MythAVTest, as it is of limited use and not properly functional under OS X.
Changes from r24740 to r24875: Upstream changes. Started building a standalone MythBackend.app package for a smaller download.
Local changes from mainline 0.23-fixes (current +psychos2 build):
- Built with latest versions of 3rd party libraries where possible.
- Patched to fix Firewire recording under 10.6. (Thanks Ojas.)
These are currently 32-bit Intel binaries, which should work on any Intel-based Mac running 10.5/10.6. New builds will be posted weekly, or more frequently as needed.
These builds will work with frontends running MythTV 0.23-fixes, including Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) and the local 0.23-fixes frontend builds.
Please note that I do not test the backend builds past ensuring they compile properly and that they launch, but users testing these builds have confirmed that they work under 10.5/10.6. Please contact me if you run into any issues! I'm currently working on an x86/PPC universal build.
