Do you take donations for your work? I would love to donate. This is working out great and would like to see continuous development!

Hey guys I'm trying to get through this setup, I followed the directions that are in the install.txt file. The problem I'm having is when I go to Programs in XBMC and select tv::server I get Unable to download the channel listings, so im kinda stuck at step 4 of the SETUP XBMC python addon. anyone know why I'm getting this error?

Actually I think the error I have is kind of misleading (I should fix it). I didnt notice it, but it should actually say that it wasnt able to write the channel list to a cache file. Do you have write permission for the <addon folder>/resources/tv_server folder? Is this windows/linux?

Does the web interface work for you? http://<server ip>:8888/m/



v0.5.8:
* Initial Plex plugin release
* Split /status api into /settings and /status apis
http://www.mediafire.com/?ky2chaxj476xalb

Known Plex plugin issues:
- transcode settings is hardcoded
- only tested to work on iphone/ipad so far
- no icon/background images
- server port is hardcoded to 8888
- server is hardcoded to localhost

thanks for the reply yes I have write permissions to the folder, it is a windows 7 machine. When I go the the ip address it brings up the tv guide but then says can not load channel list

Ok, I just double checked. I was wrong; the error was correct. For some reason the server didnt give you any channels back.

Are you using ceton or hdhomerun? If you go to http://<ip address>:8888/getChannels do you get any data? Is there any data in the resources/ChannelMap-*.csv file (* would be replaced with the device type)?

I'm using a hdhomerun prime, when I type it in nothing comes up just a white screen. the ChannelMap-HDHomeRunPrime.csv file is there but it's showing 0kb in the file size

Are you on the latest firmware? After updating, does http://<hdhomerun ip>/lineup.json?show=unprotected return anything?
If not, can you go to http://<hdhomerun ip>/lineup.html and click detect channels.
Then can you delete the ChannelMap-HDHomeRunPrime.csv and reload the app?

Todo: Throw some kind of error when channel map is empty.

Yes I have the latest firmware installed *20130328*, I get a lineup.json file when I run http://<hdhomerun ip>/lineup.json?show=unprotected. I deleted the ChannelMap-HDHomeRunPrime.csv and opened the mc2xml but still getting the can not load channel list error

Quick question... When I add my HD Homerun Prime device, there are two options. One with HTTP and one without. Which should I chose or what is the difference?

One uses rtsp/udp and the other http. Use the regular one if it works. You might need the latest firmware though.


Todo - v0.5.9:
* Clean up plex plugin - Added server port and transcode settings to preferences - done
* Reload tuner status on force stop in status page - done
* Easier application setup - done
- - Not required to copy vlc plugin into vlc folder anymore! - done
- - Autodetect vlc folder path - done
* Start as service?


RE: [dev] CetonTV(+HDHomeRun) - Watch TV on XBMC - jfoley - 2013-04-04 05:07

Not sure if it is just me or not, but it seems like after a reboot, I start the "TV" application. I have to then "Restart" the application before I can use it. If I don't "Restart" it, I get errors when trying to start a stream.

Finally, is there a way you can create a service out of the tv.exe? If not, any suggestions for auto-starting the application after a reboot?
