It sure does. Updated! :-) (let me know if you want to be a co-mantainer, cmtaz, or takeover. I use kaffeine now)

Adding these two lines inbetween line 28 and 31 of PKGBUILD should get it to build:

cd "${srcdir}/me-tv/server"

sed -i 's/abs(transponder.frontend_parameters.frequency/abs((int)transponder.frontend_parameters.frequency/g'

Thanks for the response. Will you be able to upload the updated package please? Thanks again; cheers!

Sure, I recently compiled and face the same issue. I fixed it but ended up not using it so totally forgot to update the package. I use kaffeine but maybe I just didn't give this enough of a chance. Thanks for the Bitcoin but I'll pass. Thank you very much I appreciate the sentiment.

The build now fails to complete for some reason.

As this is my wife's favorite TV viewer, I'd be happy to shout you a beer if you could look at it please. Just send me your BTC address. :-)

Here's the last few lines of the output; I'm happy to provide more if needed, thanks. (And sorry about the formatting!)

libxml++2.6 is also required to install this package.

The build is failing for me recently with many errors.

rexct commented on 2015-11-18 04:11

Need to modify PKGBUILD to support C++11 standard or may confront compiling error.

Modify line 34 in PKGBUILD as follows:
./configure CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -std=c++11 -D__KERNEL_STRICT_NAMES" --prefix=/usr

I've compared both versions. Major difference: 1.4+ uses VLC (default) or GStreamer (0.10) engine while the 1.3 uses Xine. With this the pic quality of the 1.4 is better while the 1.3 allows to search for channels. Recording +/- minutes ahead of EPG data is possible with both versions.

To me there is no reason to downgrade to 1.3. 1.4 works slightly better... That is why I won't create a package for the 1.3 myself.

This is a terrible version. In the history of Me-TV someone decided to resurrect the project or fork it and they went on a rewrite and never obtained the features and usability of the original project.

To get the original goodness you need to work on version me-tv_1.3.7-1 which I usually get from launchpad/Ubuntu.
