[REL] MythTV plug-in
Update: version 0.5beta has been released for beta-testing - see https://forums.plex.tv/topic/86644-mythtv-plug-in/page-13#entry852522 for features and other details.
Note: This is a beta-release, and will contain (even) more errors than a regular release. If you're not prepared to put up with this, wait for the regular 0.5 release which is expected in a couple of weeks (quicker if enough of you volunteer for beta-testing)
Update: version 0.4 fixes bug causing snippets of live TV (watched using the MythTV frontend) to appear as recordings
Note: PlexSync - which stopped working for recordings a while back - now works again after I upgraded my Ubuntu to Plex Media Server 0.9.11.4. I'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't break again - but so far it's good (on iOS clients)
Update: version 0.3 fixes bug causing deleted recordings to remain visible.
Update: version 0.2 now supports PlexSync!
If you have a PlexPass account (required for the PlexSync feature, I believe), you can now sync MythTV recordings to you Plex client (e.g. iPad) for offline viewing. See http://mymediacenter.me/2012/11/26/new-plex-feature-plexsync/
Note: 2 lines of code on my part - all credit goes to the Plex team for the awesome PlexSync feature!
I've had MythTV installed and working on my servers for ages (3-4 years) - primarily for recording TV - but is has always been a bit of a pain to actually play back the recordings on the TV in the family room.
So having enjoyed the ease-of-use of Plex with a Roku3 client for a while, I thought I'd try to make a plugin allowing me to watch MythTV recordings through Plex.
The result has passed the family test (ḱids & wife have used it for a couple of weeks now), so I thought I'd share the results, in case anyone else out there could use it:
The plug-in can be found at https://github.com/tschaumburg/MythRecordings.bundle, along with a wiki at https://github.com/tschaumburg/MythRecordings.bundle/wiki, including installation instructions and a load of screenshots.
Note that this plugin requires that you have a Linux server with a working MythTV backend (I can recommend the MythBuntu distribution, which wraps everything in one install - but expect the tuning of channels and setup of program guide data to be a bit cumbersome...:-).
Let me know if you find this useful - and contributions through github are most welcome!
Here's a screenshot (the gobbledegook in the programme descriptions is Danish - hopefully your EPG provider will have descriptions in your language!):
