I have pushed and update with a hack job of the PVR/Live TV support from the Confluence skin. At this point I have made precisely zero changes to modify it for the look and feel of Neon and have even less of an idea if it will even work. Confused

Unfortunately since I do not have Live TV/PVR support, I will be winging this one for now...but there have been enough requests that I think it's time to get started on it.

More updates to follow.

Stoli, you just made my weekend Smile

As I mentioned in one of the other threads, if I can do anything to help (testing, giving you remote access to a PVR system to tinker on etc..) then just let me know.

Thanks for your hard work on this skin.

-Edit; Just tried the latest SVN, 'LiveTV' entries are there in the settings screen and all look good, but I can't see a 'LiveTV' button on the homescreen or anywhere to turn one on in the skin settings.

If you use iptv in mediaportal-TVserver you shouldnt need a card. There is some ukrainian/russian channels thats FTA: http://forum.team-mediaportal.com/televi...udp-93708/ The free to air channels is on page 2 for downloading.

Maybe there is something that i´m forgetting, havent used iptv for a while but it should work fine for developing, same result as with an actual tv-card.

I thought that might be an issue. Smile Let me see what I can do.

In an effort to save a little time, what skins currently support LiveTV other than pvr branch of confluence?

Added what I think is the correct button. Smile

Just created an account to let you know, that entering the live tv menu just led to a black screen on my media pc. I added the mytv.xml from the confluence-pvr skin and all is fixed now. Just a heads up if anyone comes across this problem.

mytv.xml or mypvr.xml? I found that in my confluence (coming from the PVR branch) and added it to the skin, but there was no mytv.xml.

Thanks,

Thanks,

You just have to rename myTV.xml to myPVR.xml ... or just make a copy and keep both, i'm doing so ... you'll keep compatibility to older and newer pvr branches.

So with that included now is basic LiveTV/PVR functions working correctly in the skin, or are there other files missing?

Thanks,
