A little Gift from the B Team this Christmas

We have a small Christmas present for our users. We have been working to get live tv working on XBMC, this isn't a release ready feature just yet, but it is ready as a preview.



If you would like to test this feature, you need to have the latest Black Hole 3.0.1 (and have done all the online updates) then in telnet enter the following commands:

opkg update

opkg install xbmc-pvr-vuplus


Then restart E2.

Next launch XBMC, go to settings, enable pvr, enable vuplus addon and then configure it by setting zap before tune.
If you have set a password in OpenWebif remember to set it in the addon as well.

Current Known issues:
- Livetv takes time to enable after XBMC is started due to downloading channels from the backend and sync with XBMC
- XBMC settings may be lost if your box crashes
- It is not yet possible to switch channels when watching livetv (you must exit the channel and go back to channel list).

It is not perfect, as we said it's just a preview for the moment, we hope to fix the bugs soon, but for now it is not a priority so please just be patient and when we have the bugs fixed it will be included in the release images.

Obviously this little Christmas present is only for the XBMC enabled boxes (SoloSE, Solo2, Duo2 and Solo4K).

Merry Christmas from the Black Hole Team.
