Is android support in the plan for the Mythtv PVR Client and if so is there an estimated date?

Probably soon... Just need merge with libcmyth from dteirney.

Did you build it on the same system? Any suspicious warnings during build?
Maybe it could help if you pastebin the full build/and debug log.

Cheers, Christian

Any help much appreciated.

Hi dubstar,

Can you upgrade your system to last long term supportted version ? I suggest ubuntu 12.04 with last update.


I think i will have to. only problem is that the machine is running my my main htpc, webserver, media server...

its one of the jobs i have been putting off as i have had problems with the nvidia (gt 430) drivers in every version of ubuntu other than 10.10

I have tried upgrading a few times and ended up going back.

thanks,

Dubstar_04

I have noticed that if I press pause on live tv playback the time continues to increment in the xbmc gui but video pauses. looks like the myth client isn't posting back to the gui that a pause was done and that it needs to stop incrementing current position.

There is also some strange behavior when fast forwarding. I can fast forward but when I press play it returns me to the original position in the video stream but xbmc shows my position as being advanced.

xbmc windows build 12.0-ALPHA7 git:20121028-6d17467
cmyth addon 0.4.0 (as reported in the addons menu)

This issue is easily recreatable. I can get logs if required.

A new build was put up on dotnetdevelopers.net pvr builds site. Issue was fixed between Oct 27 build and Nov 3 build. Both issues were resolved.

I lied. Issue is still present. It worked once and I cannot recreate that. Properly showed the episode progress stopping when paused. Showed progress properly when fastforwarded. showed the live tv progress as the mythbackend was recording it. I think it presented me something different prior to proper epg data.

Is it showing me progress of the program as it is supposed to be scheduled? Shouldn't it show me the amount of the recorded stream and my progress within that as a portion of the scheduled program?

I've been testing using the 2012-11-03 Windows builds found here

http://www.dotnetdevelopers.net/XBMC/xbmcpvr.html

...and my MythTV 0.24-1 backend system.

Everything seemed to work fine for a day, but now the addon appears to be crashing repeatedly.

I captured a log here:

http://pastebin.com/5VJmar60

Let me know if I can supply any additional information.

And -- thanks to the developers for all the great work on this!!

Missing aubrien.
@aubrien
Are you ready to check my last changes ?

Janbar,
I'm sorry for not being able to respond lately. My work has been sending me around the country to fix computers all over. I should be done with my latest travel and be home by Friday. It looks like you are doing alot of great work though. I wish I had a way to test but I am sitting in a cheesy hotel typing this from a laptop. All of my equipment is back at home. I'm dying to test though. You're awsome though Janbar! Thanks. I will post as soon as I can get home in a few days.

I have some old version from tsp's repo and after upgrading to 12.10 xbmc is not starting any more (missing some shared libraries). I tried to refresh from git before I compile for new os version, but there were no new changes, it seems that tsp has resigned for good?

I can see that janbar & Co. has taken over the reins and following instruction was found a few posts ago, however which repository I should use? This one has the latest change time:
https://github.com/janbar/xbmc-pvr-addons.git

Quote:1 - Get my changes by pulling my repo:

cd xbmc-pvr-addons
git pull

2 - Compile cmyth lib:

cd lib/cmyth
make
...

3 - Clean an compile addon:

cd ../../addons/pvr.mythtv.cmyth
make clean ; make
...

4 - copy the new addon lib to your xbmc addon folder:

cp XBMC* $HOME/.xbmc/addons/pvr.mythtv.cmyth/


and then start xbmc.

My repo is the official dev repo where everything gets merged together.

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=PVR...FromSource

Janbar is currently working on some fixes where he tests with other users from the forum. as soon as this is stable it will be merged into my repo.

Maybe we should create a new forum post where we can post a link to the wiki page, or switch over to http://forum.xbmc.org/forumdisplay.php?fid=170 and have separated topics...

Cheers,
Christian

Janbar, when I make zip using your most current, I do not get a pvr.mythtv.cmyth.zip file. It would also be nice if in your sig's if you could put the link to your git repos. (Janbar/cfetzer)

you're probably missing the configure option (--enable-addons-with-dependencies): http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=PVR...FromSource

To make the playback of timeshifted video a bit more intuitive I suggest the following be added and implemented. I'm no cpp programmer but I know enough to read so read my layman code as such.

xbmc-pvr-addons / xbmc / xbmc_pvr_dll.h

/*!
* @return time_t The start time of the timeshifted recording (UTC) that is currently being read
* @remarks Optional, and only used if bHandlesInputStream is set to true. Return /* something */ if this add-on won't provide this function.
*/
time_t StartLiveStream(void) /* return value we will call timeStartTime */

use that as the lower bound of the available timeshifted video and timeStartTime + LengthLiveStream to be the upper bound of the available timeshifted video and indicate that available timeshifted video on the whole of the scheduled program. use PositionLiveStream to add an additional visual item to act as the indicator of the current position of playback.

with that users will be able to see what is available of the whole of the scheduled program and where they are in the available timeshifted stream.

@simora: Thank you. Could you please add a ticket here? https://github.com/fetzerch/xbmc-pvr-addons/issues so that it doesn't get lost.

Please also explain what's the current behavior and the timeshifting issue you see.
We will take care as soon as we have time.

Also please refetch your sources. I cannot find the function anymore.

Cheers,
Christian
