I only see RC1 listed...I thought RC2 was out? As for the link you included...is that a program we use to compile the source code from the google code base?

RC1 is the only "Released" version. The second link to Mercurial that allows Windows users to connect and download the source files from the google code repository. Being python scripts there is no need to compile the code. The files just need to be in the correct folders.

I have a quick question, now that the add-on system is there do you intend on adapting your work to a pvr-testing2 branch addon ? I am interested in creating an addon for that branch and would rather join forces if you plan on doing it too.

I am having some dialog box weirdness. I am using RC2 with the latest SVN (9-15-10) updates. When I try to schedule a recording from the guide, is seems that all the selections are not pointing to the correct setting selections. See pic.
Here is a shot of the "delete recording" dialog
I am using Dharma Beta2 with the default Confluence skin. Any ideas?
Tuner busy (using 2 tuners to watch live TV) - philipp2084 - 2010-09-23 23:25
First of all: Really good work analogue!!!
I have been using mythbox for a few month now and have to say it is absolutely great. Easy to setup and it does pretty much what I want. Even my wife is using it and until now has not given me any grief.
I usually schedule recordings and then watch these, however since replacing my TV with an ASUS ION board and a big screen, I started to watch more live TV and found this little oddity. My setup is an HD homerun and both tuners are configured in my MythTV-Backend, so I usually have 2 tuners available and can watch live TV and flick through channels.
The issue arises when one tuner is busy recording a scheduled recording. This means I still have one tuner to watch live TV and there shoudl be no problem. The first time I select a channel there is no problem at all, but as soon as I then try to switch channels I get the message that all tuner(s) are already busy. Which is true. I am using one to watch TV and one to record something in the background. I would expect that when I select a new channel the myth-backend detects that I am the client that chose to watch the current program in the first place and switches that tuner to the new program but this does not happen, instead I get the message that all tuners are busy.
I have played around a little and noticed that when I have both tuners available the following happens:
I hope this is making sense....
I have tried the same in with the mythTV frontend and low and behold it does only ever use tuner1 for the same example and hence copes with channel changes whilst one tuner is recording something else.
So in short to watch live TV and flick through channels I always have to have at least one spare tuner.
Has anyone else noticed this? Or can someone try to replicate this to see whether it is a genuine bug or just something odd in my setup.

I get the same thing. I'm not sure if it's a skinning issue or Mythbox is selecting the wrong data set. I do see Analogue making changes to the code...He just doesn't talk much.

I installed mythbox as per msg #318. When I select 'test settings' I get a dialog box called June which reports "No Cache".
What am I doing wrong?
Running dharma beta-2 33678 and Karmic. My myth backend is on a separate pc where recording are stored and made accessible via samba. I don't run a myth frontend instead playing recordings in xbmc. Contents of mythbox.log is below.

It's something related to RC2 because when I copied over the new files using HG I got the same cache message. RC1 worked OK other than the incorrect text on some of the menus. I copied all the mythbox files from my backup and it's working again. Perhaps you can download RC1 and manually copy all the files from the resources folder into the mythbox addon folder. With RC1 you can at least watch live tv, use the guide and watch recordings. I'm unable to schedule any recordings yet. FYI..don't get any ideas that I'm an expert on anything...I just had some spare time to fiddle with this.

Ok thanks, I originally tried RC1 but I seemed to be missing addon.xml and couldn't start it from the programs menu. Will look again.
