post your repo.xml and it can be added to the svn installer

edit: actually it looks like the one for xbmc-addon would work, if so i'll copy one over. do you have a preferred name for it?

For python coding questions first see http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-docs/

It is nice to see there is also Chinese support to XBMC !
But i cannot find any of the plugins you mention on this google code page??
How do I get those plugins?

Also I tried the Repo installer, they mention in the update " XBMC-Addon-chinese" but it cannot be found anywhere in the directories?

Please help me out with this?
thx

SVN Repo Installer has added the xbmc-addons-chinese but not change the version number, so you can't update it. Just run SVN Repo installer, and enter the xbmc-addons\plugins\programs and click the SVN Repo Installer to install it again. Now, you can find the xbmc-addons-chinese entry. enjoy it!

thanks, I just tried it and it works, thanks a lot.
Only I cannot get the chinese characters on it, I get squares instead. I have English windows 7 with chinese languangepack installed.
Outside xbmc the chinese characters are recognized but when i start xbmc i only see squares. Do you have a add-on for that?
Ah never mind, i found this site wich explanes it all. And it works also, hehe. http://code.google.com/p/xbox-remote/wik...torForXBMC

You can't display chinese charachters because the default arial.ttf with xbmc not have chinese font in it. and xbmc don't use the system font which you installed in windows. Just use some chinese font to replace the arial.ttf in xbmc\media\fonts(I'm using this one:http://trac.xbmc.org/attachment/ticket/6...VuSans.ttf). or just download and install the xbmc for chinese people:http://bbs.htpc1.com/thread-52775-1-1.html

Nice to meet you and thank you for the plug-ins.

I have modified some of the plug-ins (NETITV, OpenV) so that they are working with UTF-8 locales and in Linux.

How can I submit the patch to you?

Thanks,
Quintus
