Once MythTV has been setup there are a few options to allow playback of TV recordings from the Windows platform. The most obvious is MythTV itself which runs on Windows in addition to linux, FreeBSD and Mac OSX.

Options

  • MythTv Player - MythTv Player is a free and simple Myth client and player for Windows. This project is dead unless a new developer takes over.
  • XBMC Xbox media center is now available on windows, and can play recordings and live tv. Plugin for XBMC is here. Another plugin is here.
  • Boxee - Boxee will play MythTV natively, just add it as a source.

The following require Samba shares setup to view recordings

Samba setup

example samba share /etc/samba/smb.conf

[tvrecordings]
       comment = mythtv tv recordings
       path = /video/tvrec

ensure world has read access to files

 chmod +r /video/tvrec
