By "fighting with the source code" did you mean you actually had to change something? Or was it just a matter of not having compiled XBMC before? If you actually had to change some of the code, please let me know, cause it compiles fine for me every time, but if it didn't for you for some reason I'd like to know.

Thanks,
Harry

Hi This is really great work!! Hope you will keep it up Wink

Can you recomend this solution for you primary TV source, with the low resolution? Or do you hope you can change on this in the future?

What about EPG and recording is this posible?

With the video scaling that's build into XBMC even the low resolution looks quite nice. If you turn off the scaling, then it looks quite bad and I wouldn't recommend it as your main source, but if you turn on the best scaling and you are used to SD TV then I think it would be fine. That's what I'll be doing.

Once the PVR branch gets merged into the trunk I will probably see what can be done about EPG, etc., but for now XBMC doesn't have the support except in the PVR branch (which I don't feel like messing with right now).

Thanks,
Harry

Slingbox support is not in Dharma cause Dharma was closed to new features as of a few months ago. Slingbox support only came around in the last month or two (maybe three). For now the only way is to manually compile XBMC with the Slingbox patch. Once Dharama gets released the patch will hopefully make it into the trunk and precompiled versions will be available for download.

I had never compiled it before and the readme is not really noob friendly Eek

I applied the patch manually because the revision changed a bit, if i applied it with turtoise svn it gave errors.

i'm now going to test MAC compiling with the slingbox patch applied. i have finally succeeded in making the mac able to compile XBMC. (its much more difficult then windows compiling.)

Got one error while compiling with the sling patch applied.

Code:
** BUILD FAILED **


The following build commands failed:
XBMC:
    CompileC build/XBMC.build/Release/XBMC.build/Objects-normal/i386/FileCurl.o /Users/media/xbmc/trunk/xbmc/FileSystem/FileCurl.cpp normal i386 c++ com.apple.compilers.gcc.4_0
(1 failure)

Any one knows how to fix this?

The last error i posted here was solved by a fresh svn download (really strange)

After that i got this error:
Code:
/Users/media/trunk/xbmc/lib/SlingboxLib/SlingboxLib.cpp:958:0 /Users/media/trunk/xbmc/lib/SlingboxLib/SlingboxLib.cpp:958: error: 'EINTR' was not declared in this scope
----
while (nanosleep(&time, &time) == -1 && errno == EINTR &&

I had to add #include <cerrno> to slingboxlib.cpp

after that it compiled and works on mac!

Thanks for that piece of info. I'll make sure to add it to the code. I've been away from programming for a few weeks and it'll probably be another few weeks before I can continue working on this again. I believe there's some minor changes that have been requested to my code before it gets accepted into the SVN, so you won't see it in the SVN just yet, but soon. The changes requested are just a few hours worth of work ... I just have to find the time.

Thanks,
Harry

Happy new year! This sounds amazing. I registered just to say so and I hate registering for new forums! In any case, I have a SBProHD you can have access to test if you are still working on this. I know you were really busy at the end of last year. In any case, as soon as this makes it to svn plus those changes you mentioned in your last post, I'll compile it.

Best!
