RedButton MHEG-5 Engine support for the NZ freeview profile

April 14th, 2007

We now have support for an additional Open Source MHEG-5 stack, the RedButton standalone MHEG-5 engine. Again I’ve included 3 sample screen shots of the RedButton engine in action. The video window is empty as we are running the engine in a debug mode. At the moment there are just a couple of minor issues [...]

March 4th, 2007

I’ve now managed to clean up the code enough to send the patches onto the MythTV team. Take a look at their trac ticket #3162. The attached patch will work against MythTV 0.20 out of SVN. For the moment I’ve mapped the FreeView MHEG EPG key onto F12, but this might change. Still needs a [...]

I’ve enabled the MHEG support in debug mode on a test environment to see what would show up. The attached log file contains all of the output. Now there appears to be an EPG application [...]
