First thing I noticed was that XBMC_Mythtv.pvr should really be
XBMC_MythTV.pvr because it complains in the logfile when loading the

ERROR: ADDON: Could not locate XBMC_MythTV.pvr

Moving the file to 
gets it a step further.

Next thing is an undefined symbol:

ERROR: Unable to load 
reason: /usr/local/lib/xbmc/addons/pvr.mythtv/XBMC_MythTV.pvr: 
symbol "_ZTI14MythXmlCommand"

It looks like this is part of libmythxml but It was not linked to the
shared object. While searching for that problem I found the following
commit which includes a hunk for xbmc/pvrclients/mythtv/Makefile.in and
looks pretty right in what it does. But it's quite different code than
what you have in your port. Are you sure you aren't using an old branch
for the PVR code?


Both problems fixed with the attached patch.

Now getting to the next undefined symbol:

ERROR: Unable to load 
/usr/local/lib/xbmc/addons/pvr.mythtv/XBMC_MythTV.pvr, reason: 
ons/pvr.mythtv/XBMC_MythTV.pvr: Undefined symbol "GetChannelsAmount"
