[OLD/CLOSED] PseudoTV Live - Set-Top box solution

Channel switching performance is excellent using Media Portal backend. Channels in the LIVE TV section take only 1-2 seconds to switch channels, which is a very significant improvement on what I've seen using the official Frodo 12.2 release, which take 4-6 seconds to change channels.
The latest build of PTVL performs beautifully with this XBMC build. I currently have a 108 channels made up of the following channel types:-

Live TV using Media Portal Backend
Live TV using streamed files
USTVNow Plugin
Local Movie files
Local TV Show files
24/7 Streamed files.

PTVL load time/parsing of channels very quick (6-8 seconds) from Home Screen to opening channel. Overall performance is fantastic. Channel switching for live TV/streamed content very quick too, 1-3 seconds. I've not tried any music or You Tube channel types, so can't comment on the performance.
Not sure if all plugins will work using this unofficial release, but I can confirm the latest versions of YouTube and Mashup both work with no problems.

Luna, again many congrats on such a great and wonderful plugin. This is without doubt the best performance I've seen to date using PTVL and exactly what I've dreamt of having for so long. So, if anybody is using Media Portal as their backend server, I would definitely recommend using this XBMC release. The difference in performance has been like night and day for me! Smile

Wish I could merge Margo's with my spotyxbmc2 build.
