If you are looking for just a simple DVB-T tuner for freeview then I'd recommend something like the Hauppauge WinTV Nova-T USB (you can easily move it between machines then)

It works brilliantly with Linux straight out of the box no messing with extra drivers, and really simple to setup with TvHeadend, it can be had for around £25 new, so doesn't break the bank either!

I'm using a Tevii s470 PCI Express DVB-S/S2 card and I'm very happy with it. But I don't know your setup...

Is there already any progress on the PVR-Support of Alaska? Would be great if this skin would be suitable!

Couldn't someone with good skiningskills make a MOD for the PVR part. It would be lovely.. Now I have to shange from Alaska Revisited to Confluence everytime I have to watch TV.

Not that Funny =(

That would be amazing. I would love to be able to run my system as a PVR.

No. No, that wouldn't be.

No one yet 'hacked' some un-elegant solution for this? Smile Would just placing the PVR-files of for example Confluence and editing the Home of Alaska work or is much more work needed?

This would give us the nice Alaska gui, but when going in Live-TV it would switch to confluence.

I must honestly say i have no idea how the skinning engine works and if this is even possible. Maybe later when i have more time i would look into this.

Any news on this? Would also be very interested in getting PVR support. Had to go back to Confluence, which is a rather drab experience after checking out Alaska...

I did look into getting a HDHomerun device but they're about £100 so I just forgot about it.

Hey guys,

I am very new to the XBMC (sorry, but most of the skins are not my type) because I saw this skin and I totally fell in love with it.

Now I set up everything and I am using the pvr build, because I want an all-in-one solution.

I read that Hitcher can't provide a pvr-option since he doesn't have the hardware for it. But I also read that some people offered their help.

So I want to know if anyone is out there having a self-built Alaska build with PVR support? You don't have to support it Hitcher but I really need the Live TV option and switching themes all the time is quite annoying.

So is there anyone out there who can provide a build with pvr support? It doesn't even have to look as nice as the whole skin is, I just need the TV option. Sad

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work, you made me love XBMC! Smile

It's not a case me not supporting it; it's simply a case of I can't support it without any PVR equipment.

Having said that I've had a few kind offers so stay tuned.

Alright, because I can't look at my XBMC anymore with other skins than yours. Big Grin

Hope, there is a solution soon, thanks! Smile

Hot! Smile Looks like there will be some progress soon Smile

Will you implement PVR also in Dharma skins or only in the Pre-Eden versions?

Thanks again for your fast responses!
