has audio channel priority being looked into yet?
its something that is used on dreambox's so that it automatically selects the audio stream you want. You would fill out an audio priority section on the dreambox web interface like this:
english#audio 2#dos#Tonoption 2#englisch#haa#qaa#org#ORY
if you had the above it would basically mean it would give the english audio option on a lot of foreign tv packages if you had a motorised dish.
For the tv package i am using with tvheadend, ac3 is usually not the default option and some channels have audio streams that have no sound that are default (have to manually select english audio each time).
thanks a lot dushmaniac - zenman - 2011-01-24 02:14
Hi dush, thanks for making thngs a lot more clearier. Whenever I tried to read all the other threads about live tv I would just get lost because they got so big, that said I would like to ask you if your instructions work for XbmcLive?
Record not working from the upper menu ?? - prensel - 2011-01-24 18:06
Using xbmc-dharma-pvr with tvheadend.
When selecting the record button from the topmenu xbmc instantly replies that the server couldnt record.
When using the digital video recorder function from the tvheadend webinterface everything works fine and tvheadend records.
Then suddenly the recording popup screen shows up in xbmc saying which channel it is recording.
But when stopping the record function on the tvheadend webinterface the popup in xbmc keeps telling it is still recording...
Known bug ?

"Mega-dittos" ie Thank you, Dush! for making/working on such a much-loved/requested project!
I read through your website (friendly navigation, clean interface btw) but after reading both the FAQ, installation instructions, and scanning the XBMC forums, I did not find an answer to the following question:
What video input cards/dongles are fully supported and which would you recommend for main-room HTPC usage?
Thank you kindly for your tireless work. We appreciate you!

Any card that is supported under linux will work.
see here: http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hardware_Device_Information
I personally prefer to steer clear of cheap usb tuners as they tend to bring nothing but hassle.
I have had the best experience with hauppauge pci cards. the nova range is well supported and very reliable. i use dvb-t and dvb-s cards however you will need to choose depending on access to feeds and space in the machine.
have a look on auction sites for 'hauppauge nova' they are quite cheap now.
HDhomerun is also worth a look: http://www.silicondust.com/
i would recommend searching the mythtv gossamer threads for information on cards before you buy as some require drivers to be built which can be a pain.
i hope this helps.

WARNING: take care about PCIe cards that have the "cx23885 PCIe bridge chip" inside: seems it is a bugged chip and still causing, under certain hardware configuration, issues (in short: can't handle PCI-MSI-edge IRQs if there are other PCIe devices onboard).

Linux. Maverick 10.10 server minimal. NVIDIA 270.18. XBMC-PVR from dushmaniac ppa(master). I have not reported any bugs after about 24 hours of intensive use of PVR functionality already implemented. Thank you for your work.
Now with the latest nivida drivers, I blame nvidia and their drivers prior to 270.18 for the crashes I had in the past with xbmc when watching live TV.
- did you have planned to import tvheadend channel tag as XBMC channel group? and then the tvheadend channel order with theirs tag/group? I spent about one hour to re-arrange the XBMC channels
- During fullscreen live tv, there are shortcuts or methods to recall Channels|EPG|TXT layers without accessing first to the osd menu?

you can get the channel list. think the button is mapped to Menu.
