Damn, I wish my Hauppage HVR-2200 was supported in Linux. I'd have loved to be able to use this excellent script.

I've just tried installing Mythbox on a Windows XP machine running XBMC 8.10and ran into the msvcrt module not found error. Just wondering if you managed to find a solution?

This looks like an awesome script. I am getting an error when I choose a show from the guide or a recording.

Error: CatchAll
Exception: XML File for Window is Missing
Function: <function onControlHook at 0xac6bed8c>

in mythbox.log i get the following when getting this error.

Code:
DEBUG | ui.py | Line 96 | BaseWindow.onAction( action = <xbmcgui.Action object at 0x9607830> )

I am not sure what XML file is missing.

Ubuntu 8.04
XBMC SVN:18104

Thanks

I recently started using MythTV with my XBOX running XBMC as a frontend and came across MythBox, noticed it was actively being developed and couldn't have been happier. That is of course until I downloaded, ran it and then got the following error "No module named msvcrt". I don't have any other options for a frontend, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running 8.10 on two Gen 1 XBOX systems, same error on both.

Thanks

You want xbmcmythtv, not this script. If you have a recent MythTV version, you'll want to get the CVS version, not the packaged version.

I've contributed very minor stuff to the original version, and am considering options to see if it's feasible to either make this fork work on the Xbox, or see if the developer will accept patches for Xbox compatability. As of now, I've not spoken to anyone about any options, and it's preliminary.

Hi all,

Sorry for my poor english....

I have discovered the mythbox script for windows XBMC, I have installed it but when I try to launch the script, I have an error with "msvcrt".

Do you have an idea to resolved it or it is a bug of this beta version?

thanks for your help
