"it doesn't work" won't help anyone.
You will need to be more specific.
What doesn't work?
What is the behavior?
what is the expected behavior?
Pastebin some relavent logs and post the link with a description of what the problem and i am sure someone will be able to help.

sorry, you're right.
The new patch compiles/installs without problems.
Xbmc will even add it happily as a client - and I see a login from XBMC to tvheadend.
Normally on xbmc startup, I would see a progressbar for epg-updates; this doesn't happen. The pvr client won't display channels. Moving the mouse cursor over the EPG list will crash XBMC.

i'm experiencing the same behavior.
i use tvheadend from svn with the patch from robert-wm

As you can see in the ticket comments, i'm still working on it. I will make a new one soon.
The problem you are experiencing now resolves to the new service type flag of tvheadend. I introduced this to tvheadends svn but andreas extended this some days ago.
A small fix would be:
replace following lines in pvrclient-tvheadend.cpp:
this will leed to display all channels as tv AND radio channels but they should be displayed.

Thanks for your quick reply.
I tried the suggested patch:
the plugin doesn't crash anymore;
I only get the first channel (of all) to show up in the channel list though.
Any thoughts ?

There's a "break;" at the end of the original for-loop. Remove that ....

currently i've the new SVN release of pvr-testing2 build on my HTPC, but about every 10-20 minutes it crashed!
I see into XBMC crash log a long lines of ffmpeg errors. Someone have my similar problems?
Below my crash log: http://pastebin.com/m2d81ea82

The pvrtesting branch is not stable and therefore support must not be requested. The devs are aware of most issues.
Ensure you are using the latest svn before reporting anything.. currently at 27596 (you have 27303)
I believe you are using the vdr client .. probably better posting in that thread if any.

Not yet no. Someone else on the forums said they were looking at doing something but I haven't seen any code show up anywhere.
One will be done but there are some existing myth:// related bugs that I want to finish up along with some other minor refactorings and work on better TV Show library integration.

Thanks; that seems to fix the problem.
One other thing I noticed;
HD tv channels aren't handled by vdpau (ff-h264).
(as opposed to playing HD movies: ff-h264_vdpau)
I can't quite remember if this was the case with VDR pvrclient.
I did notice a similar problem on trac though.
I found the exact same lines in my debug log as mentioned in the Change History; so I tend to
believe the problem is that the demuxer does not provide the correct dimensions (as mentioned
in the trac ticket comments)
