[LIVE] Kernel upgrade with FireDTV drivers and TVheadend for the next XBMC Live? - Johnnygo - 2009-06-02 12:52

I'd like to see a kernel upgrade from 2.6.28 to 2.6.29 in de next LIVE build, with the included drivers for FireDTV/FloppyDTV from DigitalEverywhere.

With these drivers we can use the liveTV feature of tvheadend together with XBMC.

The DVB-C version of this card is about the only card that can be used for the Dutch cable companies. So I think alot of Dutch people will use this.

Sounds like a great idea!

We don't really mess with the base system so this won't likely happen until ubuntu goes to 2.6.29. AFAIK you can do all the tvheadend stuff on a server (which you can update the kernel on as you see fit) elsewhere and you your XBMC box as a client now though.
