Thanks Red_F.
Does your addon works over Internet or only in lan network?
Thanks again.

Well..... it uses HTTP to access the ForTheRecord server on port 49943. So with proper firewall/packet filter configuration you should be able to get that to work. That would enable all the 'retrieval' and 'update' stuff: getting list of channels, channelgroups, EPG, list of recordings, timers etc. etc.

But for playing (Live-TV or recordings) it uses the TsReader mechanism which relies on accessing files using windows shares (Samba , SMB, CIFS). That might be a lot harder to get up and running. Unless you are using some sort of tunneling/VPN.

Basically, if you currently can play video files with your XBMC over the Internet then you probably will be able to so with Live-TV and recordings too.

To be honest though, I do not expect it to work. Or to be easy to get it working.

Do not despair however, a longer term goal is to get the add-on to support RTSP. And the ForTheRecord developers are also thinking about implementing HTSP. Both of these protocols should make it much easier to access your ForTheRecord PVR server over the Internet.

I can't seem to get these builds working with my mysql database, it just crashed back to Frontrow for me.

Anyone using a mysql db with these PVR builds of XBMC-ATV2?

Without my advancedsettings.xml: http://c.hadm.net/FI5W

With it: http://c.hadm.net/FIiB

LiveTV appears to work without my AS.xml..

Using same AS.XML on my Mac Mini with no problem using LiveTV, so MySQL should be updated with tables for PVR.

Any ideas?

FOR IOS: xbmc.log: /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/xbmc.log (be sure to enable debugging)
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

In the cases where I have PVR tables missing from the database, I always delete the database. Then start a PVR enabled xbmc first. That will create the database with the required tables. But it means losing all the currently present data Sad.

An alternative approach would be to rename the current database. Then start a PVR enabled XBMC and have it create the (empty) database with the proper tables. Close xbmc, create a SQL script from the database. Drop the empty database and rename the original one again. And finally isolate the portions of the script related to PVR and run those against the original (and well back-upped) database.

Something like that. But i'm no MySQL expert. So I don't know how practical this would be.

Red_F, I know the database has PVR stuff in it, since I'm using the same mysql DB on the mac mini no problem.

Plus, it would give me DB errors in the xbmc.log, which I've seen before.

FOR IOS: xbmc.log: /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/xbmc.log (be sure to enable debugging)

Hi Red_F.
Let us know when you make your compilation of Eden final Wink
I tested rc1 and rc2 and works perfectly in ATV2.
Just a little problem with my hybrid tuner that I will consult in 4therecord forum.
Thanks again.

Hi Team,
Can anyone point me in the right direction of a precompiled iPad version with the 4therecord pvr addon embedded, or a copy of the 4therecord addon that will work from iPad.

Thanx

hi all
i just picked up my secondhand atv2 from ebay to run xbmc.. unfortunately it's already running ios 5.1 and not 4x. i noticed there were some very recent code changes to get xbmc running on 5.1 and i was wondering if anyone has built a new package including these changes + pvr?

i'm having all sorts of problems getting the xcode_dependancies working on my laptop - i think i read somewhere that you need xcode3 and it wont install under lion and i was using xcode4.

also, does anyone have any reports of ios+xbmc+pvr using tvheadend? i've got it running perfectly on my main htpc running windows - this atv2 is for my bedroom

hey, been doing a lot of searching vut cant find a straight answer.

I already have an ATV2 with XBMC 11.0 installed and running great. I have now decided to get Live TV working on it so have my main XBMC install setup as a pvr box. Im looking for instructions of using the above deb and how to get it installed onto my ATV2?

Download the latest build either from: http://xbmc.picmania.org/index.php?dir=atv2%2F or the one Red_F posted in this thread.

Copy it to your ATV2 using sftp (you could download it directly from your ATV2 using the wget command)

Logon to your ATV2 using ssh (putty is a good ssh client for windows, or if you are on OSX or Linux just use the ssh command from a terminal).

If you have not changed anything you should logon as root using the default password alpine

From the command line on the atv2 issue the following commands

wget http://xbmc.picmania.org/atv2/2012-04-03...os-arm.deb
dpkg -i 2012-04-03_org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_10.0-9_iphoneos-arm.deb

The first command will download the 2012-04-03 version from the picmania site, the second will install it and replace your current XBMC installation.

I have created an "Eden" final build. But rather then posting links on several fora, I have decided to make one single post on the ForTheRecord forum.

As usual, the build is not supported Big Grin

You can find the links here: http://www.4therecord.eu/forum/viewtopic...=41&t=2425.

Cheers,
Fred

Hi I tried the above. XBMC installed and I am able to start it, watch movies etc. However, when I try to start the Mediaportal PVR plugin it crashes. I have a Windows box running XBMC PVR (most recent build) using same parameters and it is working. I tried to download the OSX version, it also crashes when the mediaportal PVR plugin in enabled.

I would be glad for any suggestions for how to overcome this.

Same as above is happening to me.

Thanks Bablefish.

Could this be due to installing over another installation of xbmc Eden 11.0?
