Many times (but not always) when I exit the front end, I get a hang and the mythwelcome screen doesn't come up. I have to kill the frontend manually from the command line. I think my situation matches mythtv bug #11194. [[http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/11194]] which was fixed in changeset e1773c2cf7 [[http://code.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/e1773c2cf7bb38dc08ffa3a134602c8b173f6c9d/mythtv]]

I'm not sure if this patch can be applied to the LinHes build or if I should just wait it out until the Linhes frontend version gets upgraded down the road.

I have attached the output from the frontend when a hang occurred.

If you do not use airplay , it can be disabled in /etc/profile.d/LinHES-profile.sh

Otherwise .27 is in the testing repo, but there are still some minor things we are looking at fixing for 8.1

As jams said this is fixed in .27.

Changing the environment variable in LinHES-profile.sh doesn't change the behavior. Strangely, the output stays exactly the same. I had already tried to manually set the MYTHTV_AIRPLAY environment variable to 0 in the terminal without success, which I should have mentioned. I also confirmed that it was properly set with echo $MYTHTV_AIRPLAY, which returned 0, before starting the frontend.

I will need to make sure I have a clean upgrade path to 0.27 for my other 3 frontends, before I can switch to testing. I run one on mint debian, one on LinHES 7.4 and one on mythbuntu for a variety of historical and practical reasons.
