It seems to fail to tune to the channel. Is the backend really running? The channel list is taken from db, not from the backend so it can still show up even if the actual backend isn't running.

no you don't need gmythstreamer. i really don't know what could be the cause. you could try and download gmyth-cat and see if you can playback stuff with mplayer and that.

gmyth-cat -h backend_ip -p backend_port -c 65 > test.mpg

And play test.mpg with mplayer. Or you can change command line to grab a recording instead.

Using XBMC Linux and gmyth -- can you delete MythTV recordings? (and it properly deletes/updates the backend) ?

Im pretty sure gmyth is capable of this but dont think it has been implemented yet by elupus.

ok updated today to latest svn which didnt fix my problem so i did abit more experimenting and put the port number after the hostname which now works. Live tv is still pretty buggy but it is farr better than i was expecting.

keep up the good work elupus.

Does automatic commercial skipping work? (it reads the commflag data from the myth database and auto skips)

I'm not quite sure as my mythtv setup needs some settings tweaking itself. But i will say that currently it is not stable enough to be replacing the regular frontend.

The XBMC python script "xbmcmythtv" does all of that and more -- I love it. I wish it worked on XBMC Linux Tongue

internal support for mythtv will be much more versatile than that script imo.

No, not yet, it needs to be implemented into the DVDPlayer first, see https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.ph...tid=581841

Deleting Recorded shows shouln't be hard to add at all. Can do in a few days. Just not sure how much time I want to spend using the gmyth client.

It's annoying that I can't port it easily to xbox. Too many dependencies. Plus it's quite slow. Found another lib that i might start using instead. cmyth, will give it a try and see how well it works.

Adding the filesystem stuff into xbmc directly makes alot of sence since it removes the xbmcmyth script's requirement of smb:// sharing the recordings. plus livetv playback should be quicker and easier to change channels on.

I'm pondering adding a local mythtv url that provides a xmltv xml file. Could then be used by python gui's to display a EPG. Think doing it that way makes alot of sence. It's a standardized format after all. Anybody know of any python script that can read xmltv xml's and display them?

I actually think that there are several available for XBMC,...

...however you probably want to start with the "XBMC MythTV" script:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xbmcmythtv/

The "myTV" script is also suppose to be really good, see:
http://xbmc.orgforum/showthread.php?t=22273

Then there is the "Interactive TV-Guide (Python XMLTV)"
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=3989

and "xmlTVDaemon"
http://www.based.com/xmltvdaemon/

I also believe that the "XBMC Tuxbox Enigma Stream Client"
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=23834
and the "MP & XBMC intergration scripts" can also display XMLTV listing.xml
http://forum.team-mediaportal.com/plugin...07-a-2263/

There is also a native C++ patch for XMLTV display in XBMC, see "Half-finished TV-listings code (XMLTV-GUI)" which might be the best option long term:

Sounds like a good idea to me, leaves it option for future options as well

Cool
