Hi, was running openelec on my rpi2 and this sucessfully ran up dvblink plugin and I had live TV working fine.
However openelec didn't provide the control I needed at the alsa level so I've switched to xbian.
Under xbian, I can install the plugin and configure it etc and the guide and EPG come through fine,.
As soon as I select a channel to watch, I see the working moving icon for about 5 seconds and then nothing.
any ideas?
Has anyone been able to get the pvrclient working under the latest version of xbian?
If it helps xbian uses Kodi v 14.2 beta 2 currently.
Thisa is the error which appears in the kodi logs when the channel is selected - then about 2-3 seconds later, nothing happens.

ah. just found this link saying that all streams seems to be broken on Kodi 14.2 on xbian;
When I read "bleeding edge" rpi release I naively still assumed the thing would work! oh well lesson learned!

Everything now working again after downgrading to; XBian_2015.02.07_rpi2.img

Dumped MCE for Nvidia Shield TV running SPMC v17 with dvblink plugin!
Dumped Sky TV for being a waste of money
