Hi, My name's Chris (dj_gerbil) and I'm one of the 3rd party developers over at TVCatchup.com. I would be very interested in working with you on developing a plugin for you Mediacenter. I have already written one for XBMC and am working with Plex to develop one for them. If someone could please PM or email me then we can talk further. Thanks.

How so?? All the BBC do is give you their 8 live streams plus their radio stations and access to the last 7 days programs. TVCatchup offer 48 live TV streams and 43 Radio stations including some that are only available on freesat. They are also in the process in developing a recording application.

    You don't need to write a full new plugin, you can just write another util for OnlineVideos. The code is available via svn checkout here:
    mp-onlinevideos2 - Project Hosting on Google Code
    A good starting point are the other Siteutils (folder sites), there are easy and more complex ones.

    What API does tvcatchup offer for access other than a browser? RSS? Webservices?

    It offers direct access for RTMP url generation, and list of thumbnails, channel names and what's on. I can't say much more then that as the API isn't Open Source.
