Question  [WINDOWS]Live TV with different skin
Post: #1
Hi everyone,

i have Margo's Windows PVR-build installed and using the Mediaportal Addon to watch TV. I now wanted to change the Skin to Neon which has the "Live TV" Option in main menu but the screen freezes black when i try to activate it.

Is there any chance to watch Live TV with annother skin then Confluence?!

greetings

It will be hit and miss when working with non-stable builds.

Maybe PVR devs or the skin author may shed more light on your issue.

and ask the skin author to update his/her skin. this has been changed a couple of months ago.

I looked in the Neon Skin folder, there was a MyPVR.xml, but no MyTV.xml. Maybe you mixxed them up?! However, i copied the file and now i have both in the 720p directory. I can now open the Live TV tab but there only is the default menu on the left side, but there are no submenus/channel listing.

Can i do anything about this, like simply copy the MyTV.xml from the confluence skin or something?
