MythTV PVR client Addon Developers Wanted - Developers Only! - dteirney - 2010-09-27 10:04
UPDATE: Information about the MythTV addon can be found at http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=110694
Work that was started and discussed in here was terminated when the MythXML API was dropped from the Myth 0.25 release.
I'm scouting to see if there are any other developers interested in helping build out the MythTV PVR Addon.
I've already contacted a few people via PM where I can.
Most people have sparse free time to work on coding efforts, similar to myself at the moment.
A wiki page is being used to list out the rough set of tasks to get the implementation rocking and rolling. http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=MythTV_PVR_Addon

I'm happy to help wherever I can, as it'd be great to finally get this plugin done.
A list of tasks would be a really good start. It may help to attract people who aren't sure if they'll be able to contribute or not, and will give us a clear idea of what's needed.

Happy to help out where possible and where capabilities will allow.
As much as I've tried to live with XBMC+TVHeadend + web scheduling or XBMC+VDR (with pvr-testing2), I keep reverting back to swapping between mythfrontend and XBMC via the remote/irexec.
It would be nice to have the following from XBMC: EPG + access to mythbackend and the capability to pause and rewind live TV (much like with myth/mythfrontend).

Count me in (for as much time as young family commitments will allow).
The idea of formulating the effort into bite sized pieces is always good one.

I will start to fiddle around with the program guide / recording schedule components over the week-end

I am wanting to contribute, but in a slightly different way. I am working on a commercial project which utilizes XBMC and MythTV, and many of the things we are doing will benefit both communities, particularly with respect to the integration of PVR functionality within XBMC.
We are looking to hire one or two developers on a contract basis immediately. Of real interest will be active XBMC developers who have been working on this project already and whom have knowledge of both platforms.
If you are interested in finding out more, please provide contact details in a Private Message to me, with links to your personal blogs, etc. and I will get in touch with you.

Hi ubuntite. Great to hear that you're willing to offer cold, hard cash for people to work on this project. For me at least, though, any time and effort I'm going to be putting into this project will be worked around other commitments such as work and family, so I won't be contacting you regarding a contract.
I really hope we can get this plugin knocked out fairly quickly, especially as a lot of work has already been done on the core PVR functionality.
David, how are things going with the creation of a list of tasks?

Great. Do you have any code that helps stub out the MythTV PVR Addon. Doesn't have to do anything, but if all the methods that need to be implemented are there, that might help others see what bits are missing.

I've started a very high level list in the first post. This weekend I will look at some other Myth related areas, e.g. options for getting recorded TV Shows into the TV Show library based on some old work.
If someone wants to try and wrap their head around how the Live TV chain works in libcmyth that might be useful when the Live TV stability is reviewed.
