mythtv live stream plugin

first. I'm a non-english speaker. so , please guess what I am talking about.

Download : ... akechanges

this is a plugin for ps3mediaserver, provide mythtv live streaming to your ps3 or other DLNA enabled devices. tested on ps3/smp-n100.
there is no build in transcode. so it's usabled depends on your tv tunner/mythtv settings. I use a cheap "MYGICA A680B" on an ubuntu machine, which is a Clear QAM tunner.

place mythtvlive.jar in plugin folder of ps3mediaserver. enable it in transcoding settings. and move up to first. (or second after your "PMSEncoder" plugin.)
add channels in your WEB.conf like
videostream.Mythtv=NBC,mythtv:// is your server ip
6543 is your mythtv listen port
3_1 is the channel id . you can get your channel id from "channel" table of your mythconverg database.

attention: this is a "it works" version. please re this thread if you have any problems.

Hi, thanks for the idea of the mythtv streaming.
I've got following problem:

In the error log from the pms I've got following:
ERROR 2012-04-15 19:59:08.900 [New I/O server worker #1-8] There is no inputstream to return for [MEncoder Web]
ERROR 2012-04-15 19:59:27.568 [New I/O server worker #1-11] There is no inputstream to return for [MPlayer Video Dump]
And the streaming with VLC doesn't work although :(

Do you have any idea how to solve this? Or, how can I test if Mencoder or Mplayer can play the stream (if its available)?

And one more:
Why does the channel id ends up with "_1"? Is this the video device?

best regards

Hello, just using PMS for the first time and love it :)
I've copped the mythtvlive.jar to my plugins folder but for 1) I'm not sure what "enable it in transcoding settings" means because I don't see mythtvlive on this Tab anywhere and 2) where can I get a list of all the current channels to put in my web.conf file?

Thank you

This plugin doesn't seem to work on 1.7x. Any ideas? I tried on Linux and Windows.
