Hm yeah as I posted on Saturday when Torfinn Ingolfsen did a first
test (I think I even Cc'd you):
Bad news: I asked on the xbmc-pvr channel and was told this mythtv
addon hasn't been maintained for months i.e. it apparently bitrotted.
There is a new one using libcmyth mentioned here:
only the git repo linked,
is a fork of the entire opdenkamp xbmc pvr, so I guess I'll leave
porting that to someone that actually uses mythtv i.e. not me...
