After my hard disk crash, I’ve been struggling a couple of nights to get my MythTV system with a Xbox frontend working.

Tonight I managed to get every piece together and it works. It has been frustrating and quite painful to get it working, Google has been my friend,

A MythTV installation consist of many parts that all must work i.e.:

  • Tv record card with both driver and firmware, correctly configured in the MythTV backend
  • MySQL database that allow access from the frontend (including OLD style passwords)
  • XMLTV grabber to get a list of of the TV shows.
  • A list of what channel is broadcasted on what frequency or channel number
  • XBMC for the Xbox frontend
  • Xbmcmythtv that was downloaded via CVS
  • Correctly configured xbmcmythtv frontend

I will post how I did it during this week, stay tuned.
