MythTV Status

[ Home | About Us | Blog | Pictures | Projects | WebMail ]

This Perl script will display the current status of your MythTV system at the command line. It can optionally append it to the system message of the day (MOTD) on a regular basis (setup by default on Debian, and Debian derived distros).

Getting it

Debian/Ubuntu

mythtv-status is in both Debian and Ubuntu, but the version may be out of date. If you want a newer version, then you can install it from my own repo:
deb http://debian.etc.gen.nz squeeze main
deb http://debian.etc.gen.nz sid main  -- Or just use the main Debian repo!
And then apt-get install mythtv-status, that's it.

The GPG key for the repo is 0x45D164F6 (the easy way to grab the key is: apt-key advanced --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 0x45D164F6 .)

Gentoo

mythtv-status is available in Geetoo, to install it, just run:
emerge mythtv-status
You can see the package page as well.

Tarball

Tarballs are available here, and the latest is called mythtv-status-latest.tar.gz.

Git

The source code is in a git repository which you can browse. To grab it you can do:
git clone http://git.etc.gen.nz/mythtv-status.git
