Kudo's to all the admins, coders, and testers on this upgrade. The install was flawless! Best EVER!!!
Code:
pacman -Syu

Then a reboot. I've always used the LinHes Theme so the Updated Theme was installed, and I must say looks very nice!
Job well done!!

I only had one minor problem after the upgrade and that was with the channel icons. They were displayed in MythWeb, but not displayed in the program guide.

My icons are located in
Code:
/home/mythtv/.mythtv/channels/

I added an icon to one of the channels using "Channel Setup" and found the only the icon name was being written to the database. Deleting the path to the icon in the database fixed the problem.

So my question is: "What is the path to the icons used for the Program Guide? Is this a new default location in .27?
I currently have copies of the icons in:
Code:
/data/srv/httpd/mythweb/data/tv_icons/  (MythWeb uses these)
and in
/home/mythtv/.mythtv/channels/



Thanks for a FIRST CLASS upgrade!!

You can delete /data/srv/httpd/mythweb/data/tv_icons/ as MythWeb will pick up the universal location. Also it is recommended to edit the icon path in mythtv-setup instead of directly in the db.

Thanks for the information on the path changes in .27 for the icons.

I really didn't have a choice other than edit the database since it was really looking for the icons at:
Code:
/home/mythtv/.mythtv/channels/home/mythtv/.mythtv/channels/icon_name.jpg

I could have done an complete scan for icons but had to many custom ones.

By updating the database path now I'm now good going forward.

Thanks again for all the hard work and hours put into the upgrade.

DId that full wrong path not show up in the individual channel in mythtv-setup? That was where I was thinking but maybe it is masked and doesn't show the full db value.

I can't really verify that, as I didn't look at the time.

I can say that now, the database content for a channel icon is displayed in the channel information screen. With no indication of what the path is to the icon, or any way to change it.

So I'm pretty sure if I had looked before I edited the database entries it would have showed what ever the data was in that field.
