hopefully this will bring the necessary fixes (ie thumbnail corruption, mysql crashes, etc)...

Jim

more importantly...

Dushmaniac has merged tsp42's fixes from the cmyth-addon into his branch!!

so all the little tweeks and fixes will benefit the pvr as a whole and we will all be in sync!!

Thanks tsp42 and Dushmaniac,

we really do appreciate all the work you guys are doing.

ha ha this made me chuckle!!

Its just a shame that 10.10 isn't an LTS version with the kernels and libraries kept up to date.

for example:
I would like to use libimobiledevice to sync my ipad. its a pain keeping all the libs updated manually.

Yeah, I know this is a bit OT, but I pulled the natty kernel from the kernal ppa and installed that on Maverick - works no problems. Needed this to get my af9015 to work properly....

Although as far as libs are concerned - yeah you end up having to compile yourself for some stuff.

I've long been dancing this dance with running Hardy on the atv: every time xbmc adds a new dependancy to the list, you have to work out if you can build the required version before you can compile xbmc....

what machine are you running on?

mines a AMD 6000+, 2GB ram and it idles around 18% cpu and thats with background services running for mythtv and media server, backups...

40% seems a little high.

it's mainly just a htpc, nothing cpu hungry running apart from mythtv-backend, mythweb and mysql.

34% with a podcast playing and the screen blanked.

Can somebody explain the major difference(s) between this add-on versus dteirney's one? My understanding is that this is based on libcmyth, whereas dteirney's is based on MythXML(?). What is the difference between these two implementations and are there inherent advantages/disadvantages to each one?

Also does libcmyth have a separate active upstream? (My understanding is that the code originally derives from http://www.mvpmc.org/ ) And if so, are the changes to libcmyth pushed back there regularly? i.e. would this be considered a true fork, or simply a private, but slightly patched version of the libcmyth tree? I ask because I maintain the Fedora/RPM Fusion package for XBMC and we (and most Linux distros, generally) prefer to package libraries system-wide and then have individual applications compile against the system-wide versions rather having private code trees.

For some reason the list of recordings shows only a part of the recordings that are available on the myth backend. It is as if the latest X recordings are not included in the list.

This does not happen always, though.

I have a full debug log available from my current session, but it is over 300Mb. I will post a log when it happens the next time.

If you have a look at post #101 I posted some screenshots which I think represent what you are seeing.

Is that what you mean?

Post #102 also has tsp42s reply regarding the issue.

Thanks,

This is a different issue. I am missing a large number of tv shows that have been recorded. When I try to watch something, the last two weeks or so of recordings are missing.

I see this as well. Going into LiveTV settings and re-setting the pvr database re-imports the data and then all recordings show up correctly. It's like it doesn't periodically engage with the backend to update the recordings section? Force it to update and it will....

I've not experienced this. The only time I have missing recordings is when they have been added since xbmc started and the library hasn't been updated.
