Introduction

This list contains the unofficial Plugins for MythTV. unofficial means they are not included within the official release. Despite that these are not official(yet), some of them are really great and worth to take a look at.

These plugins (normally) work with the newest MythTV Versions. Because some plugins are not kept up-to-date with the latest release of Myth-TV its possible they require modification in a degree ranging from trivial to extreme.

MythWeb Addons

Plugin Status Description
MythBurn (Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx) [1] [2] - An extension to MythWeb, so that you can burn your Recordings to CD/DVD. Installation instructions and screen shots can be found here: MythBurnInstallation. MythTV version 0.20 contains MythArchive, which has additional features, but is integrated into the frontend, while MythBurn is integrated into MythWeb. MythBurn might have support for DVB-subtitles while MythArchive will not.
MythStreamTV [3] (Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx) Live transcoding and streaming of MythTV recordings over the network. This is a patched version which works with the new MythWeb. The original version can be found at sourceforge here, but it won't work with SVN or 0.19 of MythTV, for this you have to use the patched version found under the first link.
NOTE: There are issues to resolve even with the latest patch from "jogibear9988". With a little time, these can be resolved. One of the issues is that some language strings are missing (Example: "modules/_shared/lang/English.lang"). Please run the script "build_translation.pl". A couple other issues exist, but they are simple to resolve. With a little time, the system can even be modified to stream live TV. It works well.
MythWebRSS (Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx) Additional php file to create an RSS feed of the Previous Recordings page.

General Addons

(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
Generate/grab a list of the hundreds of top movies you wish to see someday, and arrange for them to be recorded if they are ever on TV. Instead of browsing what movies are on in the next 2 weeks, just pick all your movies at once, and eventually they'll show up. Look for and record the pilot episodes of hundreds of the top TV series of all time, in case you missed them, or want to try them out. And a lot more....
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
MythExport is a script that can be added to MythTV as a User Job and used to export recordings into a format playable on portable devices such as iPod Video, iPod Touch, and PSP. Besides converting your recordings, this script also grabs data from the MythTV MySQL database and injects it as iTunes data into the exported video so that it will show up correctly on your iPod. Now includes RSS feed and daily cleanup functionality.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
Command line script for exporting recordings to a number of formats including DivX, Xvid, DVD, SVCD, NUV+SQL. Easy to use: Select recording and options from numbered lists. nuvexport website - nuvexport
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
It does not recode the file, so it is very fast, but noisy recordings will probably have audio sync problems.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
PHP5 application that monitors live events that are being recorded and will auto-extend recordings when it's determined the live event is running late. Written with live sports events in mind (NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA support included), but not limited to just sports. Requires Myth 0.19+.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)

(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
Utilities and sample code aimed at using DVB radio recordings with iTunes, iPods and Podcasts.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
Converts MythTV nuv files to mkv, mp4 or avi files. Can be run as a MythTV User Job or at command line to convert MythTV recordings or stand alone files. The converted recordings can either replace the nuv one or be copied to another location. If this other location is under the MythVideoDir, imdb will be searched, a MythVideo db entry created and a coverfile file created if one was not available at imdb.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
Display the status of a local or remote MythTV backend. Can send an email if there is a recording conflict (soon to be extended to other issues). If installing the Debian package then your MOTD will be updated on a regular basis.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
Replacement rc script for mythbackend. Uses Process Creation's Swiss-Army Knife (PCSK) to supervise mythbackend and respawn it if (when) it crashes. Provides more intelligent process checking than the standard rc script. It also utilises mythtv-status, if you have it installed, to give useful info about recording and scheduling as well as process status.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
A graphical utility written in Java to search recordings, see details of recordings, copy single and batches of recordings, and other features for remote access to recorded programs. This should work on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Windows Programs

(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
MythHelper is a Windows application which has been created to aid in the process of transcoding recordings from a MythTV machine. Currently MythHelper will aid in transcoding to both Xvid AVI and DVD MPEG-2 files.
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
A collection of DirectShow filters and applications that enables playback of MythTV files on windows. (The idea is to allow almost any mediaplayer to handle mythtv recordings including streaming files from the backend and watching livetv. There is a How To which uses DsMyth to help play recordings from MythWeb on Windows machines over a LAN. Unfortunately this software is no longer being maintained with support ending at MythTV 0.19, but the latest version still can be used to play .NUV files from MythTV 0.20.)
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
A Windows Frontend for MythTV. (Depends on DsMyth and is thus limited to MythTV 0.19 or earlier).
(Confirmed to work with MythTV x.xx)
