To continue from Dushmaniac, yes this is possible.
I have Channels mapped to "DVD Menu" and EPG mapped to "Guide" on my remote, therefore having to move Codec/Debug to "Enter" on my MCE remote.
Here's my Lircmap.xml file...

This works worldwide. You need a TV Tuner of some sort for this to work. Either Terrestrial, Satellite or Cable tuners.
You need to install a TV backend (TVHeadend or VDR) and the version of XBMC with PVR support. Plenty of guides on here.

Thanks for the great work dush. Would it be possible to get a simple install like on this thread for MythTV? Also is it possible to test any of the linux pvr backend addons with the Win32 XBMC install?

karatekickz Wrote:Would it be possible to get a simple install like on this thread for MythTV?there's a mythtv thread too. I'll check later if that thread can be simplified too, but I'm not running myth myself and I don't have any spare DVB hardware for a second backend, so I can't test this myself at the moment.
Quote:Also is it possible to test any of the linux pvr backend addons with the Win32 XBMC install?not with the official setup. you'll have to compile one yourself, from the source in my signature (Dharma-pvr to get the stable one)

dushmaniac Wrote:yes and yes. don't ask me for an ETA.There is a little design problem with the channel groups. In Tvheadend a channel can be assigned to multiple groups/tags. In XBMC a channel can only belong to one group.
Are there any plans to implement HbbTV?

Quote:Are there any plans to implement HbbTV?no and I doubt it will make much sense for us. afaik this is a definition of how to embed video, definition of web interfaces, etc. things we already do differently.
Tv card drivers instalattion - zenman - 2011-01-26 18:43
Ok I've done everything exactly how it´s described by Dush, but my problem is how do I install the necessary drivers for my Tv card or usb Stick? I know where to get them in the Wiki, but how do I install them?

have a look here: http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/User_Information
does it work like this example: - zenman - 2011-01-26 18:54
"Install the Tevii s660 Drivers
1) Download drivers (check these are the latest here)
wget http://tevii.com/100315 _Beta_linux_tevii_ds3000.rar
2) install nano
sudo apt-get install nano
3) install unrar
sudo apt-get install unrar
4) Extract drivers
unrar e 100315_Beta_linux_tevii_ds3000.rar
4) open the Readme
sudo nano README
5) Follow the Readme instructions:
sudo cp *.fw /lib/firmware
sudo tar xjvf linux-tevii-ds3000.tar.bz2
sudo make install
6) cd /lib/firmware
6) Backup the driver
sudo cp dvb-usb-teviis660.fw dvb-usb-teviis660backup.fw
7) Rename the driver to match the one dmesg is looking for
sudo mv dvb-usb-teviis660.fw dvb-usb-s660.fw
9) dmesg |grep dvb
It should say something like usb successfully initalized and connected
wonder if it works like this?
Thanks Dush - zenman - 2011-01-26 18:57
Ok gonna check it.
