I'll help with this too, I am just installing a new machine with the pvr branch, mythtv and ubuntu 12.04. I assume I use the same apt -get requirements as tsp42's?

Cheers

hmm ok. It should recognize version 72. Sounds like it is not properly installed.

Ok, just reinstalled just in case.. Now it loads then crashes out. Nothing special in log, but this on the console:

xbmc.bin: AddonInstaller.cpp:262: bool CAddonInstaller::CheckDependencies(const A
DDON::AddonPtr&): Assertion `addon.get()' failed.
/usr/local/bin/xbmc: line 137: 2612 Aborted (core dumped) "$LIB
DIR/xbmc/xbmc.bin" $SAVED_ARGS


It's consistent. I tried recompiling and I still get it.. Anything else I need to paste in?

How do I check which version I'm running, did a git clone but maybe it's set to the wrong branch?

After doing a git clone you have to change to the myth-0.25 branch.

Code:
$ git checkout myth-0.25

Due to all the other problems you seem to be having I'd recommend re-building and then re-install or run XBMC from the source directory.

Code:
$ ./bootstrap
$ ./configure
$ make clean
$ make
$ ./xbmc.bin

Use MythTV for recording TV? Try the integrated MythTV support in XBMC Media Center. Now with commercial skip support built-in and integration with the Movie database!

The libraries that need to be on the machine are those needed for building standard vanilla XBMC. If you have the dependencies for tsp's PVR branch that will probably be fine.

Yup, that switch fixed everything. Still had to patch it slightly for libpng15 but it now more or less works.. Mythbox isn't working so I guess it's not using libcmyth?

Excellent, thanks. Building now, will report back.

OK, sorry for my newbie-ness but I cloned your repo and then did the above on the commandline. However, the resulting app does not have the PVR functions available. I don't know if there is a switch somewhere I need to flick but the build I did with tsp42's files had the pvr already set up, the only thing is his does not do 0.25....

OK, a visit to Google may have cleared up my issue. Recompiling now to see if I got it right.

Wife is watching American Idol from Fox, am getting a little bit of jumpiness..

I know Fox uses a specific modulator which local affiliates are supposed to use but which gave VDR/VNSI a problem. I got this if I use it OTA or using Clear Qam with DD 5.1 passthrough. I will try other stations and see if it's Fox specific or also on other Networks, or just out local affiliate. I don't get any noticeable problems when playing back through mythfrontend.

Sorry, I am out - not experienced enough to compile your code with pvr support. Will look at downgrading Myth on Ubuntu 12.04 instead. Good luck with the changes.

Looks like live tv doesn't list any of my analog channels? Only the qam/atsc channels are listed. I use and HVR-1600 connected to a Comcast DTA for the cable channels..

What is the difference between this and the tsp version I am currently using in terms of functionality? apart from the 0.25 support?

I have done a git clone of https://github.com/dteirney/xbmc.git but how do I compile and install the 0.25 branch?
