Hi

I believe I've found a bug in your addon. This bug exists also in the twin plugin. (and in many other XBMC addons...)

If the path to the dll file contains a non ASCII letter, the adding will fail due to dll file not found.

I googled a bit and found this to be a known issue.
You can look here:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=125492

When I added a user name to my system that has only ASCII letters I had no problems with the addon.

I don't get how i should fix XBMC not finding my addon.
As it has not found the addon, my code did not even run, how should i change anything about that in my code?

I guess you should encode/decode the DLL path to UTF-8 before sending it to XBMC.

You can look at what AMET did here:

I don't send any DLL path to XBMC. XBMC finds it on its own.

Hi BtBN... I just found this, and am going to try it tonight (GMT -8). I'm running OpenELEC xbmc on a AMD Fusion e350 box (foxconn nt-a3500). Any idea which build I should use? I'm guessing Linux x86, not the Linux x86 64. But maybe neither will work on a Fusion chipset?
Thanks...

Depends on the OpenElec version you installed. If you installed 64bit, it's the 64bit version, if you installed 32bit, the 32bit one.

Thanks for the quick response! Yeah, I figured that much... :) Not sure if AMD's fusion is x86 or not.
... and Professor Google just answered that for me. :D

I know I installed the 32 bit version. I wasn't sure if AMD's Fusion chipset was x86 compatible or not; turns out it is an x86-type chipset. I thought it might have been something else, similar to ARM or the like.

Call me a noob, but how do I install your addon? It's not a zip file. I don't know how to manually install an addon. Do I just drop the pvr.dvblink folder somewhere in my xbmc hierarchy?
Thanks...
EDIT: also does it matter that the folder name pvr.dvblink is identical to zeroniak's addon folder name? Do I need to uninstall his version?

Sorry, somehow missed the mail.
Just put the pvr.dvblink folder in your addons folder after you built the addon, or use one of the pre-built archives.


Btw, anyone with a rpi who wants to test my automaticaly build arm archives?
You can grab the latest one from my jenkins: http://ci.btbn.de/job/xbmc-pvr-dvblink/

I can't test the builds, as my HTPC is currently out-of-order and i also don't own a RasbPi, so feedback is welcome.

I'm no longer actively maintaining my version of the addon, because i migrated my TVserver to Linux and can't test updates anymore.
I'd recommend using the zeroniak's addon.
