Has anyone been able to "Live Stream" Hockey Night in Canada on ATV 2?
I've searched every heading I can find with no Joy!
Thanks to the Developers... awesome for those of us in the boonies!

To clarify, I am able to watch cbc, foodtv, but not comedy, global, ctv, citytv, or muchmusic. I updated CanadaOnDemand today and I'm running the most up to date stable build of xbmc.

Does CBC offer this on their website?

Hi and thanks for getting back to me.
Yes, they sure do... I was watching the game online with my Mac but was unable to get a stream with Canada on Demand to my ATV2.
I'm a total Noob with all this but I was able to navigate to the live streams and I think I even had it once, but in the end I just got an error about not being able to open the stream.
I've run through most of the other channels etc and they work very slick. If we could just get live streaming going this would be THE kick @ss addon!

Getting better... uploaded the latest update and now I can hear the live stream for CBC Hockey Night In Candada but still can't see it.
Kudos to those who are constantly working on this addon to make it truly awesome.
Ps... Heading to the Bar to watch... LOL!

i think anyone looking to stream live hockey games from cbc would be better off looking at the live stream add-on
i'm certain someone there could help you out.
canada on demand doesn't stream any content. it only plays whatever recorded content is found on those sites

I've found the same thing, it streams perfectly on my windows xbmc, but I get sound only on my ATV2. It's been like this since way before the playoffs. It's not the COD's plugin that's at fault, because if I sniff the rtmp manually and try to play it in an strm file on my ATV2, it's the same thing. A long time ago, I had looked in the xbmc logs from my atv2 and had started looking up the error messages and I finally decided that the problem must be with how CBC formats their streams.
I never really put much effort into it because the quality of CBC's live streams is typically so poor anyway.

Very true... but I'd save money on beer not having to go the bar to watch!

Baloney. It plays whatever it can scrape from the websites. I used it to live stream the Scotties Tournament of Hearts and the Tim Hortons Brier on TSN. TSN made them available live and put them on the web site, so CoD was able to play them.
If the Hockey Night in Canada live isn't working in CoD but it is on the web site, then there's an error either with the web scraping or with the streaming (if it's with the streaming, it might be a librtmp or an xbmc bug, though).
In order to fix things, a logfile will be needed.
