    Hi guys, this should be a simple question:



    Is there a way I can get Myth to immediately start a channel when the front-end starts, skipping the menu?

    Does no one know how to do this? I want to set up mythtv for my mother, but it has got to at least turn on like a normal tv!

    Consider it an experiment, I think adding a bit of usable tech with the tv shouldn't be too hard...

    Just brain storming here - can you use the telnet port to start watching TV? You could launch a script in the background when mythfrontend is started, which will wait until the telnet port starts and then send the watch tv command. You probably can use netcat for communicating via telnet.

    Take a look at this. It looks like there is a way via telnet to launch MythTV into a particular function (like - live TV) using the JumpPoint feature.
