I'm wondering if anyone knows if the EPG(s) are able to be bound to shortcut keys? It would be nice to have a separate key on my Harmony for

EPG: Now, EPG: Timeline, EPG Channel... Etc..

Any ideas if it's possible?

I've just added keymappings in the dev branch. it'll be included in the next ppa build:
Code:
e = activate EPG = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 31,0, 10,0)
h = activate TV = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 32,0, 11,0)
j = activate Radio = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 33,0, 12,0)
k = activate Recordings = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 34,0, 13,0)
b = activate Search = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 35,0, 14,0)

those magic numbers will be replaced by labels later

I have also looked for a way to activate "record" using a remote control button (quick record the current showing program, as you would do by selecting record from the menu).

Is there a shortcut that can be attached to the record button on a remote, or is it possible to add it to the code?

basically the funkctions should also work from the remote.xml, unfortunately i can't get it work even from the keyboard.xml.

Seems that xbmc does not recognice the XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus command because the XBMC.ActivateWindow(MyPVR) works as expected.

[EDIT]
it's exactly that, the function needs a recompile with the corresponding change in source code
[/EDIT]


Thanx

Think teletext will make it complete unless it is already there?

Just to make it a little bit comfortable for all that osdschool vdr users, which are very interested in that project. And of course the current ppa becomes more and more an alternative to vdr/xine, even when it is not yet.

Another thing is deinterlacing, which is a little mit more complex compared to xine while you have to set a proper value for each channel separate. Despite of this i recogniced a stuttering using temporal_spatial on my GT520 while in xine similar doing is ok. It looks like xbmc deals a little bit different with these settings?


btw: thanks a lot for the buttons Smile

teletext is already mapped to the "v" button.

for deinterlacing: try vdpau temporal or ion optimised if you have an nvidia card. I think I had the best result with temporal for other cards (assuming the channels have the same params where you live).

Hi,

I am running odk42 build for Mac OSX (and tvheadend as backend).
So, I am using the "aluminium" apple remote to interactuate with XBMC PVR.

In general, the simplicity of the apple remote is enough.
When I am at "PVR.fullscreen" window, I can up and down volume with up and down buttons. But I would like to zap channels (previous and next channels) with the left and right buttons.

The left and right buttons are working for "Video.Fullscreen". I can go forward and backward "inside" the same movie.

It is posible to "link" the next&previous channels function to the left&right button for apple remote?

Thanks

Note: I am using the skim Slik for PVR.

which sequenze is needed for EPG Data Now, Next and Timeline?

Another question, when i use the "back-button" in a "ActivateWindowAndFocus", this window interpretes it as "ParentDir". What´s wrong?

Thanks for help.

I second this request/question! But i did find out that you can set your favorite EPG view (Now, Next or Timeline) in the settings. Using the new EPG action will open your current set EPG view. So if you make sure your XBMC always starts with "Timeline", you will always get this when choosing "EPG = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 31,0, 10,0)".

At least this is good enough for me for now!

I try to open the guide of the current program without success.

When I call DialogPVRGuideInfo, the windows is empty. Is it possible to add a shortcut to the guide of the current program.

Thanks.
