is someone interesting to test ?
0) configure your regional settings (timezone, etc)
else records won’t work
1) create our own channels.conf for vdr 1.7 ( -o7 ) (from putty or from vt2)
for dvb-t ( -ft )in france ( -cFR ) , command line is :
w_scan -ft -cFR -o7 > /root/channels.conf
cp /root/channels.conf /etc/vdr
(else w_scan –help is your friend 😉 )
service vdr will start 15s after the creation of /etc/vdr/channels.conf
2) activate xbmc-plugin-xvdr
go to system/addons/installed add-ons/pvr clients
Choose vdr xvdr client and enabled it
3) in system/livetv/
– check “always use the channel from the backend”
– check “enabled”
– reset the pvr database and confirm
4) go to live tv
watch tv 🙂December 25, 2011 at 06:05 #2318
Latest version is running well for after deactiviting VAAPI -> as already reported in the other posts.
But there is still a issue with the button mapping of the MCE remote.
I think there should be a standard mapping for MCE remote available in the internet -> maybe you can integrate this.
To my mind the MCE remote is the more or less standard remote for PC’sDecember 25, 2011 at 13:56 #2319
Confirm – running well here also.
This advice from Tom will get the MCE remote working again:
“with the last devel iso , you can try :
opkg remove eventlircd
opkg remove v4l-utils
your remote should work”
My only real issues atm is that reboot or shutdown are sometimes instantaneous, sometimes take a couple of minutes, unsure why; sometimes wlan0 is not present, but a reboot will fix that.
Generally it’s working very nicely, used the built-in installer to do a HD install.December 25, 2011 at 16:11 #2322
MCE remote trick Doesn’t really work for me… anyway i ave to do some more testing.
But i found an issue after rebooting with XPVR:
XBMC starts with an error message that the PVR Manager is enabled without having a PVR Client enabled -> which is not true cause the PVR client XPVR is enabled and LiveTV works -> so why this error message….
Maybe because of the time out in the RUNVDR start script? 15 sec. before vdr is really started … maybe XPVR tell XBMC it is not ready because it can’t connect during the VDR start delay to VDR…. just an ideaDecember 26, 2011 at 09:48 #2325
While it was working well on “live usb stick”, I tried to install “geexbox-devel-20111224-r13686-i386” on (another) usb stick but i get stuck on the same error…
What i did :
1 – I created a usb stick with iso on it using linux usb creator
2 – started my computer and, at prompt, selected : “install Geexbox to disk…”
(at this moment, i get an error : could not open framebuffer: no such file or directory) but it continues
3 – Inserted another usb stick and replyed yes to begin the install
4 – selected sdd and replyed two times yes !
5 – the system run for a while… everything seems fine except at the end I get the 3 followings messages :
cp: can't stat ' /.root/isolinux/splash.png' : No such file or directory
cp: can't stat ' /.root/isolinux/vesamenu.c32' : No such file or directory
cp: can't stat ' /.root/isolinux/help.msg' : No such file or directory
/tmp/installator/target/boot is device /dev/sdd1
The installation has been completed!
Press any keyto reboot the system...
Obviously, when I start the computer with the stick, I get the “Could not find kernel image: /boot/vesamenu.c32”
Any idea ?December 26, 2011 at 12:03 #2326
MCE remote is working like a charm for me with r13686.December 26, 2011 at 12:17 #2327
I am wondering that MCE is not working for me .. only the navigation buttons.
How can this be? Are there different versions of MCE remote?December 26, 2011 at 13:13 #2329
That I don’t know. Here’s how mine shows up:
I: Bus=0003 Vendor=0471 Product=0815 Version=0000
N: Name=”Media Center Ed. eHome Infrared Remote Transceiver (0471:0815)”
H: Handlers=kbd event4
B: KEY=fff 0 0 200 108fc32e 2376051 0 0 0 7 158000 4192 4001 8e9680 0 0 10000000
B: MSC=10December 26, 2011 at 13:26 #2330
Same Vendor and Product numbers for my, but doesn’t work.December 26, 2011 at 13:48 #2331
@lolo, please open a new post, and how did you install geexbox from iso with dd or unetbootin ?
new iso that correct problem while reloading channel data with vdr-geexbox
for the remote : same receiver with different remote ?December 26, 2011 at 15:44 #2340
With the new ISO the XVDR addon problem is NOT gone.
XBMC still complains during the start that LiveTV is enabled but no PVR client.
I remove your sleep delay of 15 sec in /usr/bin/runvdr, and voila it works.
I am sure the XPVR addon waits until it is able to connect successfully to VDR and only then it reports a correct start to XBMC.
And with 15 sec of delay it sems that it takes to long for XBMC and the result is the error message i got.
Maybe you can fix this… 🙂
BTW, for what are the 15sec good for?December 27, 2011 at 01:23 #2346
i have a saa7134 card that need a firmware upload and if you start vdr to early, firmware upload failed.
If you wait for 15 s, can xbmx reconnect to the pvr client ?December 27, 2011 at 06:01 #2352
The PVR client has no issue to connect to VDR after it is ready.
It is only the error message i always get, which does not disappear.
Don’t you have this error message window too?December 27, 2011 at 06:04 #2353
BTW, Power off the system doesn’t really work, or takes very long with r13693.
Over 1-2 mins. Reboot is much faster.December 28, 2011 at 02:21 #2372
Just tested r13693 for vdr, once I had sorted out my channel list (to use correct transponders) perfect in every way 🙂 . Only used for tv watching. Though not tested against any remotes. Well done GB team 🙂
