What did you change in platform.py? I see line 76 but not sure how to change it. Thanks.

Error
Watching Live TV is currently not supported
with your configuration of MythTV 0.24 and
XBMC 0.0. Should be working in XBMC 11.0+

Edit:
From the log:
ERROR: E | platform.py | MainThread | Line 78 | Cannot determine version of XBMC from build version: 11.0-PRE Git:20111213-fb530e8. Returning 0.0
It looks like the naming changed from PRE-11.0 Git... to 11.0-PRE Git... Editing platform.py resolved the issue.

Analogue has just posted a new update with the fix here:

Thanks, Analogue!
Awesome. Thanks. Working now.Big Grin
I just upgraded XBMC for Windows to 11.0-BETA1 and receive the error MythBox Dependencies not met in the lower-right corner when trying to install analogue-mythbox-1.0.4-98-g0d7f3272.zip. What steps am I missing to get this latest version to install?

I had XBMC 10.1 and the downloaded version of MythBox from Get Add-ons but that version didn’t work when I upgraded mythbackend from 23.1 to 24.1.

Thanks much.
First of all, sweet app! Love it.

I'm noticing though that certain recordings that have their commercials flagged do not offer me the option of skipping and watching. Has anyone seen this before? In mythweb & mythfrontend they say flagged, and I can skip them in mythfrontend.

I'm using eden, git mythbox and mythbackend 0.24.

Cheers!
Hi all

this is great plugin ! .. That's what I have in mind for TVHeadEnd TV Server until we get with XBMC 12 a real, stable PVR support ...

@analogue .. what do you think .. is it possible to adapt the addon to run with TVHeadEnd as backend ? I have no idea about communicating with MythTV .. TVHeadend uses RPC protocoll [http://www.lonelycoder.com/redmine/proje.../wiki/Htsp .. If you think it's possible I would give it a try .. unfortunately I'm stuck atm. The RPC communication between the in plain c written Server and a client python script doesn't work but I spot it ...

So long

If you're interested in TVHeadEnd You should probably investigate the pvr branch, which will eventually be merged with upstream:

https://github.com/opdenkamp/xbmc

I believe that somebody is developing a PVR client add-on for tvheadend.

Update: I see that you know about the PVR branch. Sorry. Nevertheless, it seems better to try to integrate/improve the existing add-ons until such time as PVR is ready. For example tsp42's cmyth add-on: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=110694 is getting almost stable enough for regular use (although I still use MythBox on my home system).

On that subject, @analogue I see you were asking about working on dteirney's myth add-on here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?p=6...post626364 (before it was superceded by tsp42's add-on). Are you still planning that? It could definitely benefit from some of the bells and whistles that MythhBox currently has (e.g. commercial skipping, episode number, original air date etc.).

I think I solved my own issue. I had to run XBMC as administrator when installing the MythBox zip file the first time. After that XBMC and MythBox appears to run okay as a normal user under Windows.
I just wanted to thank the person or persons who have created this script. This has helped me retire Windows Media Crap on my windows based HTPCs since I have a nice 6 tuner (2 hdhomerun prime) system in the backend doing all my recording. Thanks!
Can anyone please help, I have not been able to get this script working for a while, here is the relevant portion from my xbmc.log from the moment I hit enter on Mythbox:

Appreciate any help Smile

It looks like maybe your settings.xml file got corrupted. Try removing
Code:
/home/bobby/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/script.mythbox/settings.xml
and have MythBox try to regenerate it.

Thanks, I removed that file and I can get into Mythbox now but I get an error immediately and my XBMC freezes. Here's tail of the log:

Suggests that it looks like there are more issues with the files in the add-ons data area and not just the settings.xml file. I would completely remove all files and directories from:

Code:
/home/bobby/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/script.mythbox

and let MythBox regenerate everything.
Thanks, I only had a "cache" dir in there and I removed it, ran XBMC and it froze again. Here's the log:

Also, what I get in XBMC right as the Mythbox splash screen fades out and the script fades in to start is the busy signal and this error freeze:

"ERROR
CONNECT TO MYSQL FAILED: 1045: ACCESS DENIED"

I am using a MySQL server on the same machine as I'm running XBMC from with zero problems, not sure what's going on here.

The MYSQL settings in MythBOX are your MYTHTV's mysql Server settings. So unless the mythtv instance is the same system as your XBMC server you will need that mysql password and ensure the account allows access from a different host.
