End of Life Notice:

Thanks for everyone that tested the MythTV Android Frontend project!

There will be no more development on it and a new MythTV Player For Android is now in development.

And for those that may think the new project will support Live TV, as of MythTV 0.28-pre, there is still no Services API interface for Live TV, so it still isn't possible.

MythTV Player for Android is going to focus solely on playing the media you have on your backend, forgoing all the rest of the frontend features that you would find on a traditional frontend.

Here is a short list of the goals for the project:

Recording Playback with no dependencies on external players
Video Playback with no dependencies on external players
Chromecast Support
Leanback interface for Android TV

You can follow the progress of the code here: https://github.com/MythTV-Clients/MythtvPlayerForAndroid

We are currently working out some minor layout issues and finalizing playback scenarios in the app and are hoping to release this for beta very soon.
