analogue Wrote:A general note on channel changing and the speed at which it happens. MythBox has no control over how quickly the channel changes. The underlying myth:// URL support in XBMC is used for livetv so you would be much better served by logging an issue directly in XBMC's trac database. I would advise that you don't include MythBox in your steps to reproduce. Instead, create a myth source directly in XBMC and attempt to watch livetv/change channels that way (the docs on how to do this are on the XBMC wiki..just search for MythTV)
PVR functions are abandoned in XBMC oficial releases, i dont think it will result in anything since it not seen to be a priority.
Actually we have some good projects in this way, just missing a greater sync.
A fully functional solution is better then several projects that work in half.
Myhtbox is the coolest among them. Nice interface, unique features, but if I have to wait 10/30 seconds to do a simple channel change (I'm not saying it's Mythbox fault!) all that cool stuff that draw my attention goes away.
I will try to log this issues and report into XBMC Trac.
Thanks for your enlightenment.

Concerning my issue in post #547, your rev c985a057a9d9 solved very well the problem. Thanks a lot.
But no improvment for the issue 165 ... I send you log on googlecode website.
Have a good day.

The sound issue is probably because of your sound settings in mythtv front end. Change it to Alsa:default and try again.
I have same problem as you except mythtv frontend live tv works 100% but doesn't work on xbmc. It is stuck on "Working" screen and then nothing happens after that ? Waiting over 10 minutes ..
Does the XBMC-PVR (https://github.com/opdenkamp/xbmc) work with mythtv ?

I use xbmc-pvr (ppa) from Lars Opdenkamp, but in release odk48 for Lucid (mythbuntu 10.04).
I tried a more recent release (again from ppa) but numerous issues with mythtv.
Lars gave me the advice to try compiling the DjTerney release from github. What I done, but again, several issues with mythtv (loss mythsocket, etc ...)
So I came back to the odk48 release which works pretty well.
Mikenike, I saw in mythbox issue #164, you tried:
i simply added 2 lines to /etc/hosts :
192.168.178.22 mike (current user)
You shoudn't. Afer the ip address, you have to write the name of the host, not a user name.
Basically, it could be something like that (if your pc is called .... htpc for example):
IMHO you'd better making test with a more "stable" xbmc release, and also stay with Mythtv <= 0.23.1
Just my 2 cents ...

LiveTV works fine on MythTV Frontend but doesn't work on MythBox. TV Guide works fine on it though except the guide is off by 1 hour ( daylight savings ?? )
When I try to watch a live tv channel on MythBox, it says waiting and then hangs their ? I had to kill it manually ...
FFMPEG on ATV? - harx001 - 2011-04-04 00:42
I haven't been able to find this answer, so I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I've just downloaded the latest source and created a zip installation for my ATV2 to test the streaming functionality. The old Mythbox started up fine, however the latest from trunk wants me to use cydia to install ffmpeg. ssh into the atv, apt-get install ffmpeg doesn't work, and there doesn't seen to be much information on how to get this working. Any ideas/suggestions/help!!?

OK, I was able to install com.fizk.ffmpeg and now mythbox starts up! I get a list of recordings, my upcoming recordings show, and I can pull up a tv guide. Neat!
However, I get a couple of strange issues:
- I can't play recordings or live TV. Get a strange 'int: -10' error (xbmc.log below), and later on a broken pipe message.
- When I go into settings, I see all the right details, however 'test settings' errors out with a mysql connection problem.

I need help. My setup
mythubuntu - backend uses mythtv 0.24
windows 7 + xbmc latest version 10.1 + mythbox addon
apple tv2 4.2.1 latest firmware jailbroken + XBMC nightly build + mythbox
Windows 7 xbmc mythbox works flawlessly - I created a network share in windows to point to my backend //MYTHTVSERVER. In the mythbox configuration xbmc gui I used the folders //MYTHTVSERVER/LIVETV & //MYTHTVSERVER/RECORDINGS.
In appletv2 xbmc mythbox front end I need to do similar configuration. How do I create and mount a share in AppleTV2. I would like to create and mount a share called MYTHTVSERVER in AppleTV2.
Any help would be appreciated.

The forthcoming mythbox 1.03 is supposed to remove the need for mapped shares. It's not out yet, but you may get some joy compiling from the latest source (or waiting).
