I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but I've done a lot of searching and haven't found much on it.

Running Vista Business with MP1.1.3 and XBMC-PVR-e7ba398-dx using and HDHomerun.

Had trouble at first with MP having a black screen. Updated ffdshow to the latest and it works. Installed the MP plugin for XBMC and it seems to be connecting okay. But when I try to launch live TV, I get this:

23:39:05 T:3888 M:2476736512 DEBUG: Error, could not open file rtsp://Media/stream2.0
23:39:05 T:3888 M:2476736512 ERROR: CDVDPlayer::OpenDemuxStream - Error creating demuxer

I have found a couple things in threads. One says that ffdshow could be the problem and one says that there should be an @ in the address, so instead of rtsp://Media/stream2.0 I should show rtsp://@Media/stream2.0. I don't know where to change this to test it. I'm pasting the log in case somebody has seen this or in case it might be a bug. Thanks.

The problem here is probably that XBMC's ffmpeg library doesn't resolve the "Media" part in the 'rtsp://Media/stream2.0' URL into an IP address.

Its not a bug in XBMC or the Mediaportal addon but a missing/broken feature of the ffmpeg library for rtsp urls.

Enabling the PVR addon setting "Convert hostname to IP-address" should fix this. If not, open the "MediaPortal TV Server Configuration" and change the streaming server IP-address from "(auto)" to the IP address of your network adapter.

It works only with a rtsp://x.x.x.x/steamx.0 url (where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the rtsp server (TVServer machine).

I don't know how it works together with a HDhomerun. Is "Media" in the URL the hostname of your TVServer or the HDHomerun device?

Yes, you were right on the problem. Changing the setting fixed it and TV is working now. Thanks so much. And yes, the "media" is the hostname of the server box. Thanks again.

Edit: Now the log is filling up with this after half an hour or an hour while watching live tv. ffdshow again?

do you hear stuttering audio?
if not, ignore it. if you do, you could change the buffer "fullness" via advancedsettings for pvr streams, but changing channels will be slower.

Yes, the audio stutters or even repeats. I will change that setting and see how that works when I get home from work. I'm just happy my xbmc is one step closer to doing everything.
