I've been working on an addon for Tvheadend for some time. Unfortunately I have not had any time to work on it in the last two or three weeks (can't even remember any more). I've submitted some patches to Tvheadend and am also talking to the author of Tvheadend to add necessary features.
I hope to be able to continue the work the weekend. What is missing is recordings and timers.

This are good news, I hope you find the time to work on it.
A small question, do you work on using the epg with TvHeadEnd?

Yes, EPG information is loaded from Tvheadend into XBMC.
libcmyth or alternative? - blowfly - 2009-10-14 23:00
I've started to implement a mythtv addon using the libcmyth library, but it's starting to fall short in a few areas.
The question is - do I enhance libcmyth (which originally comes from, and is tailored for, the mvpmc project)? Or perhaps make a new C++ library instead that's more tailored for our needs with the Unified PVR?

Without knowing where libcmyth is falling short it's kinda hard to give any valid opinion
I also suggest you ask this question on the myth mailing lists too.

One example is RequestEPGForChannel which needs a channel, start and end time. libcmyth only has cmyth_mysql_get_guide which gets info for all channels in one go.
That's only one example and it looks fairly simple to solve. But what about other functions that we'll no doubt need? Perhaps a fork of libcmyth may be a better option than starting from scratch?
- alcoheca - 2009-10-14 23:43
cmyth_mysql_get_channel_guide could be easily implemented like you say. Just modifications to a SQL query if I remember rightly.
You're talking about forking - so presumably you've not had positive feedback from the libcmyth developers??

I think I've possibly used "fork" a little harshly Perhaps branch would be more appropriate?
I've been looking at libcmyth's forums and it looks as though someone else is using it for an iPhone app. They were quite positive about any changes he makes being merged back onto the trunk. I'll mention what I'm trying to achieve to them over there and see what response I get.

sounds great, good luck

I've already got some positive responses from the MediaMVP devs. They're looking at moving (probably branching) libcmyth to a separate git repository as they've had quite a bit of interest in its use.
