    Hi,

    Been trying for days to get my MVP to show Live TV without much luck.

    After selecting "Live TV", it shows "It is taking unusually long to initiate live tv... most likely unable to resolve backend's host name".

    I'm using MythTV 0.20 running on FC6 as backend and dongle ver 0.33.

    I have also added the line "echo 192.168.10.253 mc >> /etc/hosts" to the dongle.bin.mvpmc.config and it is still not working.

    I have search through the mailing list for some answer as to why i can't watch "Live TV".

    Really hope someone can help to give some pointers to getting Live TV to work.

    Thank you very much.

      OK, so you've affiliated an IP address with the 'mc' host name, but where is the 'mc' host name being used?

      There was discussion of this just recently:
      http://news.gmane.org/find-root.php?message_id=%3c45e860dd4e.mark%40frodo.chez%2dmoi.org.uk%3e

      The short answer is that you probably need to supply all the database related command line parameters:
      http://mvpmc.wikispaces.com/commandline

      in your dongle.bin.config.
