MythTV 31 is out!

Initial update is out. There were quite a number of changes and the wiki has not yet been fully updated, so there might still be some bugs with this build. Please report so that I can try to fix.

Important Note on AUR packages in general:

For AUR packages, you - as the user installing the package - assume the role that a package maintainer has for regular repo packages.

That means that the responsibility to recompile the package whenever a package B that your package depends on changes. For repo packages, maintainers do this for you and re-release the package with an updated build number (e.g. -1 to -2). AUR mainainers will not do this, because there is no change to the PKGBUILD. You need to recompile locally, whenever this happens.

@keepitsimpleengr: The issue is with xmltv upstream. If you build from git, you end up with a working build, trying to build from the last release version (0.6.1) will fail, because there was a change in the way perl parses xml in the meantime. So either wait for upstream xmltv to make a new release, or just build your version from git.

In 0.31 Schedule Direct as of April 7 requires XMLTV to get listings. This requires {https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xmltv/). Using ABS to compile and install this fails. This results in no listing using mythfilldatabase, thus no rule based recordings.

The one client only system (of four) that uses Mythtv the most was suffering audio dropouts after upgrade to 31. The easiest fix for me was just to reinstall the OS (Manjaro) as the system was only used as a HTPC.

Aha, thanks! I had that problem too (had to downgrade to keep the family happy...) I'll try again and see if that works for me too. Thanks!

After the upgrade to 31, I had horrendous audio sync problems, with the audio rapidly becoming far ahead of the video playback. There is mention of significant changes in the video decoding and playback in the release notes: https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Release_Notes_-_31_Video_decoding_and_playback I found that I needed to turn on the option to "Prefer OpenGL for DeInterlacing".

@RuneArch: Yep, that happened again... Updated without bumping the pkgrel, because no one with a working build actually needs to recompile just for that.

Not sure if we've got the old issue of the github package changing again - I'm getting SHA checksum errors.

Direct download from github gives me a sha256 of: 907d1747950ec6ef1ec965069c75500b4538b781333f60e16d62d519b221a86d

Whereas the PKGBUILD has: 096ace898e4a075293bb720bd9f33ae5818650f0ef62e722db290c68e522612f

If anyone have issues watching live tv via MythTV there's a workaround: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MythTV#Setting_up_the_database

Built on my two systems and also tested ok. Thanks for packaging @Taijian and upstream for the fix.
