I use MythTV as my home DVR (digital video recorder) and noticed that there is no native Sailfish app.

So, here it is: MythFish

With MythFish you can:

  • control MythTV
  • wake up TV computer via Wake on Lan
  • see what's currently playing
  • adjust volume and playing position via slider

It also has support for automatically waking up the TV computer and connecting to MythTV on start of the app.

Supported languages are:

  • english
  • german

This software is open source GPLv3. Sourcecode:


Note: please report back any bugs or problems you encounter! Feedback would also be nice, so I can make the app even better!
