DSPlayer (DirectShow Player for XBMC) Frodo build available
After some further investigation with Live TV and pvr:// type file designations, as best as I can tell, these are not being converted internally to os-specific filenames before being passed. I think this is the case because, at least for me, looking at the logs with debug on, when playing to the internal player, I can see correct translation to an actual filename and then this plays correctly. If I take that filename from the log and drop it into MPC-HC, the file plays. Looking the DS graph using graphstudionext, it is using the same source/splitter, video & audio codecs and the EVR renderer as specified in my xml files.

Also, using the python API, obtaining the file playing from the player class and then running it thru xbmc.translate, I get back the same string. No translation.

Furthermore, if I attempt to use MPC-HC as an external player for LiveTv, it is passed the untranslated version (ie. pvr://channels/tv/All TV channels/55.pvr) as opposed to: 'smb://HTPC-W7/Users/Public/Recorded TV/TempSWMC/LiveTV_EinsteinsSon_Digital Cable_1106_2014_05_22_08_53_40.ts'.


I posted a bug report in the PVR forum. I have not found the developers there very helpful, however, in the past.
