Because there are no OSX builds on xbmc.opdenkamp.eu, I decided to make one with the latest PVR code...

Anyone who would like to try it out can get it here:

Thanks for the heads up...

But my build is currently newer and uses unmodified opdenkamps source.

Just an FYI. When I installed this and launched it, the beta of the Weather Underground script gave me a fatal error. The log said:

File "/Users/pkscout/Library/Application Support/XBMC/addons/weather.wunderground/default.py", line 21, in <module>
from PIL import Image
ImportError: No module named PIL

This error doesn't occur with the stock Eden install on OSX or on the Windows PVR build. So I'm wondering if some port of the core python didn't compile properly.

Thanks!

Is there a way to use dummy add-on with this for skinning purposes? See http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1056658

I don't have a PVR backend, just would like to take a look at making a skin support for PVR.

@pkscuot: PIL was indeed skiped during compile. It needs to be enabled separately. I'll take a look later. For now you can just take script.module.pil from the official XBMC application bundle and copy it into PVR. But I don't know what kind of weather.underground addon you're using. The one in my app bundle doesn't require PIL.

@pecinko: It was probaby skiped because the OSX build phase was not kept up to date... I'll take a look later.

@pecinko: I did a little diggin' on the pvr demo client... it's compiled and included in the application bundle. The problem is that in the addon.xml the platfrom is set only to "linux". To enable the demo client on osx, download this xml: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8261657/pvr.demo/addon.xml and replace the one in the on in the application bundle (Contents/Resources/XBMC/addons/pvr.demo/addon.xml).

I'll give it a try. Many, many thanks!

Your little digging just made my day! It seems to work as intended.

I've spent a lot of time trying to make this work, without a success. I can not thank you enough.

I made a new build with script.module.pil included and demo pvr client enabled for OSX. Link is in the first post.

Good to know, and it's no rush. My OSX machine is my development box anyway. I'm testing a public beta version of the default weather underground plugin that enables, among other things, radar maps for the US. My bet is ronie added PIL to deal with that. So given all that I suspect I'ma very edge case. Big Grin

We haven't released one because tcpsocket is missing, so how did you work around it without modifying the code?

I just followed the osx compile instructions and fixed the missing xcode project build phase references. Everything else is untouched. At which point should it fail because of the missing tcpsocket?
