As many said, my previous post about OpenELEC RPi PVR wasn’t a real PVR support but DVB drivers and kernel support. Recently PVR and RPi sub-projects were merged into XBMC master branch, thanks to Lars Op den Kamp and Edgar Huceke and many others. Here it’s how and what you need to have it working (you need to have network connectivity).

Raspberry Pi is a revolutionary device which increased the DIY community. Although its limited processing capability every one is trying to output the best of it. The objective is to pull this little device to its maximum by doing amazing things!
On Raspberry OpenELEC Tvheadend works well streaming directly to TV, but how about streaming to TV and to a computer?
That’s what I did today. For 15 minutes every 10 seconds pidstat monitored CPU usage for the Tvheadend program while streaming both to TV and my computer. Here’s the chart.
I’m a proud owner of Raspberry Pi, and I hope to have much time to spend doing software / hardware stuff with it.
However this post is about my will to see RaspberryPi as mediacenter: mounting my network shares and streaming DVB-T channels. I live in Portugal, so DVB-T channels are encoded in H264/AAC.
