Is it possible to set the latest eden version up as a pvr including backend without installing another specific version of xbmc?

If not how can the specific version be installed on the XBMCbuntu base?

I'm no expert but I would assume you can put Mythtv on and use the Mythtv video add on.

nicktids, you're right, that should work for people with a mythtv back end. Personally, I really like the 'native' feel of watching television in xbmc-pvr so I prefer that over the Mythbox add-on.

What would be nice would be for the installer to add an option to install/configure the backend automatically...

MythSuspendAlarm: Suspend xbmc and set ACPI wake alarm based on next scheduled MythTV recording.
BBC Football Scores: Get live football score notifications.
Random Movie Script: Play random movies from user's library (for skinners).

bilbonvidia, been searching for same, no luck yet. Anyone ?

EDIT: finally found a solution:

Download this file
http://packages.pulse-eight.net/ubuntu/install-xbmc.sh
then run chmod +x install-xbmc.sh
finally run ./install-xbmc.sh

don't know how this will impact future releases thou

I've managed to get mythtv and the mythbox addon working but I will keep that in mind if I go the xbmc-pvr route
