i love this new branch with xbmc as tv frontend, but i miss plans to use the best tv backend software: the "recording service" of dvbviewer. is it planned to use this too?

XBMC + DVB Viewer's recording service as a back end would be a match made in heaven.

Is all this working with the RC2 of Mythtv 0.23

noone has ever written a functional pvr client for myth - so that's a no. nor any earlier versions.

Should the roadmap be updated?

Is there a list of intended and currently implemented features per backend?
I'm testing the tvHeadend client and can't see any previously recorded shows, I'm not sure whether this is a problem with my configuration or whethewr it's just not implemented yet?

I think Recording acess is broken as I've tested it with streamdev & vnsi-server , and it always show an empty directory.

That'll explain that then. Thanks.

Are there any news/rumors if PVR will make it into the upcoming XBMC release? I'm currently using some Windows-PVR builds from community members and can only say that the PVR part seems quite stable (besides of issues of the connectors themselfes). So will it make it into XBMC 10.5/6, as the branch has been somewhat quiet in the last weeks.
If the release manager feels unsure due to the not perfectly stable PVR connectors, simply don't ship those connectors (or ship none at all) and let them be downloaded via the extension manager.
One feature I'm missing though is timeshift. Does the PVR API support it so that it's just a lack of missing support by the clients, or is the API not yet up to it?
