I would like to reboot my roku once a night, like at 3am. It sometimes freezes and requires a hard poweroff (pull the plug). I'd like to see if a regular reboot fixes this.

Does anyone know if it's as simple as cron'ing /usr/bin/shutdown? or something like that?

thanks

Hey Jim,
I exercised ff/rew on my saved recording of the Olympics opening ceremonies. I gave it a pretty good beating for over 30 mins (mixing ff and rew and various speeds) and did not experience any problems with rew/ff that I've seen in the past.

Nice work! and thank you

Donn

ah ok, you're right again Jim. I should watch the write cycles on the onboard flash. I'll try mounting the CF read-write tonight. THANKS!

Ok, I moved my "settingsdir" from /tmp to /home/mythroku Rebooted and made some bookmarks. Now in /home/mythroku I see a .settings file # ls -la /home/mythroku/ drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 512 Oct 9 23:53 . drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 512 Oct 4 2005 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 104 Oct 10 00:00 1051_20...

hmm, I am not sure why FF/RW stops working but can see a set of circumstances under which it might be occurring. If I understand correctly after a lot of FF and RW ing the button shows increasing or decreasing the FF/RW speed but the show plays at normal speed. Is this correct? I suspect it has got...

thank you for the reply Jim. I wish I could help however my programming skills are limited to simple shell scripts! I think you are saying that I can set a bookmark, then exit the playback, restart playback, and then jump to bookmark using the Up/Down buttons. I will try that. This reminds of anothe...

Nice to read some new messages on this thread :) Jim, There is a feature that I really miss from my retired x86 frontend: The ability to skip ahead any X number of minutes. On the x86 FE, you can type "17" + CR and you'll jump ahead 17 mins in the recording. I suspect this is difficult if ...

Hi James, I saw one of your posts saying that you're open to considering new features. Here's one. My family could use a "playlist" feature. Basically, you'd select a few shows (less than 5) that you want to watch and then play them all back-to-back. This would be handy for 30 min shows. Y...

WOW, I gotta say that mythroku just gets better and better. The FF and REW functions really work and are very handy. The progress bar is fantastic. I also stumbled upon a shortcut today that I like. I used to play a recording by pressing SELECT and then SELECT again when it asks "Play episode, ...

I just started using the NEW mythroku with my mythbuntu 7.10 backend. I used to be one of the old mythroku users before James did his excellent work on it. The new mythroku is very very awesome. Normally, I leave mythroku.app running and I notice that new recordings do not appear on the list as they...

I'm pretty psyched about the new features in mythtv .19. My friend has it and says Live Tv for HD works excellent now. Problem is mythroku is still on the older version of the myth protocol :( I'm wondering if I should start a 2ndary backend just for mythroku! but then, the 2ndary backend may not be...
