hey megacrypto, how about a few screens from lets say main menu (home screen) to watching tv? I'd like to take a look at it ( I know there are a few screens in the first post) before I take the plunge with XBMC and VDR to replace mediaportal.

I'm having problems with make vdr and ffmpeg
Any help would be appreciated

did you uninstall libav* before compiling? seems it takes the wrong library

i will try to, since my xbmc is running on a dedicated machine that does not have a desktop installed on it (i use the ubuntu mini install to minimize the boot time since it will only work as a htpc) .. haven't got vnc working on it yet

i got everything working, but my solution was a bit messy (since the only way to use the remote was to install another instance of vdr - a pre-compiled package - and then use this one to actually run vdr), but i actually could not get vdr 1.7.2 to compile (always gave an error that it required Linux DVB driver API version 5.0! .. so i used vdr 1.6.0 which the GetRecordingEvent.patch ran with no errors on it
anyone faced the same issue with this API 5 matter? i did install v4l-dvb as per this guide here and point to in the Make.config file DVBDIR = /home/mega/src/v4l-dvb/linux

i have a question about this xbmc patch ... did anyone try it with mythtv ? in the settings one can select between either vdr or mythtv... im wondering how it works with mythtv ?!

im trying to see different ways to make the remote work, so im trying
again a very lengthy output, but maybe someone could guide me to where this could be resolved

No go with both - the latter one at least shows my upcoming recordings, but that seems to be it so far.
So i guess mythtv users will have to wait a while longer..

lx01, are you aware of the mythbox python script for mythtv integration? Long term I understand the plan is to integrate via the unified-pvr branch, but for now, the mythbox script offers a fair bit of functionality...
