damn good job! this is exactly what i'm looking for! :bowdown:
using mythtv 0.16 as standalone-server, xbmc cvs and your xmbc_mythtv-0.13 here...working great!
what about translations? i'm working now on german translation for your xbmc_mythtv. any plans to integrate language specific subdirs for the next version?
will post when done translating... think, i'm done this afternoon (gmt+1)...

just to let you know that translation to german language is finished (so far). had to include some very small changes to design.
grab it here:

fyi... made a small bug fix. if you have problems quitting out of some screens (i.e. it doesn't let you go to the previous screen by hitting back), grab the latest version from the usual place.

what is the secret to getting a host value to 'stick' in settings? i can change/modify all the other values, but no matter what i put in host, it's always blank when i open settings back up. also tried putting it in the mytvsettings.py file, but it's still blank when i run the script and go to settings.
i completely wiped out xbmc, and reinstalled it from the version avalaunch installs for you (1.0 (05.09)), so i'm assuming this is the september 5th release? running mythtv version 16 (so protocol 13, right?)
i've installed xebian and mythtv frontend on my xbox already (so i know the connectivity to my backend works), but if i can avoid that one minute bootup and just use xbmc that would be great. well, i can watch them now using xbmc, but it's hard figuring out the show you want to watch with file names like 1047_20040930223000_20040930230000.nuv!
thanks for any help on this...

that's odd... no one else has reported this problem. when you hit the back button on the controller or menu button on the controller, the settings screen writes out the settings to a file called mytv.xml in the xbmc application directory. if that isn't working then you can create the config file yourself and ftp it into the directory. here is a sample to help you get started:
yes, mythtv 0.16 uses protocol 13, 0.15 uses protocol 8.
 if you are running mythtv_xbmc-0.13, there was a close screen bug that might have caused an exception to be thrown so that the config file couldn't be saved. if you're using 0.14, then this sounds like a new problem.

i have been using happily version 12 with mythtv 0.15 for some time now. however since the last three days, selecting 'recorded shows' or 'tv guide' returns an error popup 'time data did not match format: data=2400- '. selecting status works ok.
mythfrontend on linux works correctly.
thinking about a corrupted database, i have manually cleaned the database of any guide and shows data and ran mythfilldatabase again. still same error.
i'm fine to upgrade to 0.16 and the latest xbmc_mythtv version, but does anybody think it will fix this ?
pointers or suggestions to debug would be appreciated!

i think if you upgrade that you won't have those problems anymore. after upgrading to myth tv 0.16, i had date format errors as well so i ended up making some changes to the scripts. however, those changes only take effect if the protocol version is >= 13 because myth tv 0.15 seemed to be working fine.

ahh...i didn't know about the mytv.xml file! mine looked like this:
so i guess the host line got messed up somehow. i know i didn't manually edit it, but perhaps i screwed it up by going into the other .py files or something. anyway, i deleted it, went back to settings and fixed everything, and now it works just fine. thanks for the assistance!
oh, and great work! this script is very cool. now i can save the 2.5gb or so of hd space that my xebian/mythtv frontend setup takes up on my xboxes. this will be especially handy on the one with the stock hard drive (for xbox live access).

we're using your "plugin" day-by-day now. it's so easy and clearly now using xbmc to view/manage the mythtv-recordings; specially for my girlfriend.
again, thanks for your work!
