I'm having some issues playing .ty streams from XBMC (CVS build 4-29).
I've tried two ways. Extracting the .ty to my PC and playing over an SMB share, or using ccxstream and connecting to the XBMS share directly on the tivo.
Both cases i end up with a loud screeching noise (sounds a little like morse code), and no video. Also, as an FYI, i have the xbox plugged up through my receiver via optical cable, and my TiVo is a DirecTV combo unit.
Any help is appreciated,

Well I tried a later CVS build (5/10 IIRC) and still saw the same issues. As a workaround, I muxed the .ty files into .vobs on my PC, and XBMC played them fine. I think XBMC still doesn't have all the bugs worked out regarding .ty files.

The 4/19 build worked flawlessly for me, for streaming .ty files directly off my Tivo. I installed the 5/09 build on a second xbox, and am experiencing the same symptoms you are describing. Looks to me like a new bug has been introduced into the latest builds.

Thanks for the info Don. Hopefully they'll iron it out.

if somebody could provide a small sample ty file it would be alot easier.

How small is small ;-)
I've got a couple of Seinfeld episodes sitting on my USB drive right now, that I could FTP over to you, but they're about 500MB each.
I could edit them down to a few minutes, but I'm concerned that if I do, that it will change what is supplied to me "natively" directly off the Tivo. I don't think it's an issue, but better safe than sorry...
My other option is to wait until I get home, and record a quick couple of minutes of a program, and send this to you, which would then be a "complete" file.

think that is better with a correct file to beginwith.. you can upload the sample to the bugreport about ty/ts files on sourceforge. somewhere around 5-10 mb is fine.http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?f...054&atid=581838

Okay. I've got a 1 minute recording that I can upload to sourceforge, however, in following the link provided above, I don't see any way for me to send an attachement as part of this entry.
It seems I can create a new bug report and attach a file, but not to the already existing one...

hmm. maybe only members/devs can.. can you provide alink for me to download it from?.. actually just realised, where you can upload it... i'll send you a priv mess .. don't remeber what the max size is, but its somewhere around 8mb.. rar or zip it first.
