I've got the go ahead to stick something in the sat4fun forum regarding development of one of the many Linux satellite boxes as a backend... Just need a bit of time. Hopefully tomoz. Will post links up when it's done.

Been VERY busy at work so never got round to this.. the mods forewarned me regarding my posting so it is very brief and a little hidden but I've asked the question about Linux satellite boxes as backend HERE

sorry, I may have missed something but what about media portal sever support via MP extended, I cant find a mention of this in the forum or anywhere else. Has this been explored?

there is a mediaportal plugin which uses MBserver. I guess they don't want to go the other way as it's taking their userbase away!

Who is they? I'm fine with MP as a tv back-end for us. Armand said he might consider looking into it.

Can you go in our MP thread and ask Armand about it again? I think with a little nudge he can be convinced.

I would assume mediaportal would be fine using the server but all else surely takes their users away?

Oh @Luke i did get some response on the sat4fools site, currently mixed in with all the xbmc stuff. I'm going to try push for our own thread/forum if they're receptive..

People need to get in here and ask this dev for help getting DVBViewer as a back end....
XBMC can't play HD channels on devices given the mediabrowser server can transcode surely we can????
Cardshare users should be VERY interested in getting Dvbviewer working. I recently tried nextpvr and it was awful in comparison. Didn't even try the mediabrowser plugin as it was so unstable...

I've added my 2p worth. Just need some more interest.....

It seems DVBlogic will be focussing more on its backend than frontend products according to Oberons response in this http://forum.dvblogi...&p=89961#p89961 thread, let's hope (and ask if) they will allocate time for a plugin for Media Browser.

Did anyone ever look into DVB Dream as a backend? http://www.dvbdream.org/

It doesn't seem to be the cheapest but if I look at the hardware support and the options pay for it if it works.

 

Have to many problems with CI/CAM on Argus/TV, doesn't descramble my channels with my Digital Devices hardware, while DVBlogig has no problems doing it.

 

Now looking into setting up ServerWMC or NextPVR with MB3 and wonder which of the two does the fastest channels switching, since pretty thats important to me.

 

For the scheduler features and stuff, wouldn't that be somthing to build in MB so that it's the same regardless which backend you use? I'm not a coder, so don't know if it's possible, so just suggesting.

next pvr channel switching took too long for my liking, was very buggy too from the limited use I gave it. sacked it after a couple of hours....

as for dvbdream as a back end $50? really

dvbviewer is £14 (or it was when I bought it!!)

there are plenty of free options too, $50 is ridiculous for a program that is just a progDVB ripoff

which would be a better option actually at 25euro....

This is MB3 architecture problem rather than a NextPVR problem though, so you shouldn't really bag NextPVR over it. Take a look at channel changing in NextPVR itself, you'll see it's as quick as anything else. I typically get channel changes in about a second in NextPVR, which is pretty damn good.

 

There is going to need to be a lot more work on the MB3 side of things before you see quick channel changes, regardless of what backend you're using.

I didn't use it within mediabrowser, i tried it on it's own. Very unstable for me.

@sub3 I'd really need to have a test system (which i don't!) to give nextPVR another go.. I REALLY wanted it to work, more than anything for the cardshare capabilities. But it took me an hour to get the picture to work!!! And even then it was kind of "automagically" just seemed to start working of it's own accord.
