If you want something which works with current master you can build the PVR addons from margro's branch. As you can see there are currently some discussions about required dependencies, that's why it is not yet included in the official branch.

Hi there

Does anyone know if this plug in is available for Raspberry Pi with RaspBMC and the nightly PVR install?

Thanks
Greg

Should work if you compile it yourself but problem is that Raspberry Pi have no MPEG2 support without buying a license for MPEG2 so only MPEG4 will work otherwise.

I'm new to XMBC and have started using OpenElec on a Raspberry Pi. The VU+ client is available in the addons menu so I downloaded it to the Pi from within OpenElec, configured it and then enabled Live TV. I get the message "Add-on could not be loaded. An unknown error has occurred". Can anyone suggest what the problem might be? I though that as it is available for download in add-ons, then it should work out of the box. Am I missing something? Thanks

Hi there,

I love this plugin and it does really a great job. I was wondering why timeshift is not implemented? Would this be a great effort to implement? If you use the tubox plugin you've got a pause button and timeshift is working, so in general the function should already be implemented in XMBC or am I totally wrong?

Thanks

Stephan

Stephan - could you please help me? Are you using an RPi? If so, how did you get the plugin to work? Mark

I got it up and running but somehow I can't achieve a decent picture quality, expecially with HD channels. SD looks quite fine.
Is there a way to influence picture quality in XBMC as there is in Mediaportal or do you have to live with what XBMC has to offer?

Problems I have are stuttering (both the HTPC and the Dreambox are connected to the network via lan) and sometimes off-looking deinterlacing.

Do Dreambox videosettings influence the plugin?

Greets

Turn on post processing, if your PC cand handle it, you'll get a massive improvement. just select video, once you are watching something, select post processing and the apply to all videos or whatever it says so you don;t lose the setting.

Timeshifting is not implemented in the PVR code yet - I guess this is something that will be worked on once everything is stable enough...

Thanks for your answer, allthough it is interesting that it is working when you use the Tuxbox plugin. But I think from the code view this is another framework?!

Hi Mark,

I own a Dreambox 8000HD and the plugin should work with every Linux tuner which has implemented a Enigma2 Webinterface.
How can I help?

I just sent an PR to inlcude the addon to the "official" ones - with curl removed as a dependancy. Can you check whether it works once it has been merged?

The tuxbox plugin does not utilise the XBMC PVR functions (i.e. not a proper EPG, timer handling etc.). Right now there is no timeshift available in the PVR functions yet, but if you check this PR https://github.com/opdenkamp/xbmc-pvr-addons/pull/46 then you will see that it is being worked on.

Once this is in I will check whether this will work with the vuplus addon, too.

I think this is also something that needs to be addressed from XBMC itself, not a specific backend implementation.
