Given that there is no way to mount the recordings directory using smb, as no smbclient exists for the ATV2. Is there a way that I can specify the media source that I have setup (and works) as the path to the recordings directory in the Mythbox settings?

did you try nfs? there are free nfs servers for Windows if you need one.

No, I haven't tried using nfs, but I understood that I couldn't mount an nfs share outside of xbmc, and that I would have to be able to mount the recordings directory outside xbmc and provide the mount point in the settings for MythBox.

I guess I don't know enough about the ATV to answer your question. If you can't mount nfs on ATV and also can't mount SMB, then I think you're out of luck.

hello. I installed the plugin I have activated but I get error of login to SQL.
The password is not correct.
You know that can happen?

I'm wondering if it is possible for a plugin/script to access a "media source". If so, Mythbox could be modified to be able to use a media source for accessing the mythtv recordings directory... this would get around the need to mount the directory externally to xbmc, and also to develop a script to do that mount.

Is it possible to disable the welcome/splash screen? Just the black background and white mythbox whenever I enter the add-on.

I don't believe that Mythbox mounts anything. It sends a request to the MythTV server which then streams the file.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't very clear. I can mount the mythtv recordings directory as a "media source" in XBMC, but can't mount it as a mount point out side of XBMC. As Mythbox seems to only want to accept a mount point as the location of the recordings directory, this means that I can't get Mythbox running on an ATV2.
I think that if it is possible to modify Mythbox to be able to utilize a "media source" as the location of the mythtv recordings, Mythbox would work on the ATV2.

I installed .24 mythubuntu and was able to access it using myth plugin in XBMC dharma. I am aware that this plugin does not work **fully** in .24 - Are there any plans to support 0.24 in the future? Is this development actively pursued?
Whoever developed this plugin - hats off! now XBMC can be one media center for ALL my needs
