the MeeGo TV Working group meets over the phone every week (a bit less
during holidays period such as now).
The meeting minutes are published in this mailing list and are available
though the Mailing archive system.
We are still struggling with a full publication of our code in the
public due to unsolved patent-license issues but the generic code (aka
not directly CExxxx related) is already published in the MeeGo OBS.
These blocks are :
- MeeGo TV browser which provides an example of adapting HTML-5 video
Tag for HW acceleration, a customized API to replace the missing mouse
(common on TV).
- UMMS (with 1.2 it's only a proof of concept). Our abstraction to
enable to play any video with HW acceleration when available.
- XBMC for MeeGo. That has been our test UI until now and the MeeGo
port is publicly available. You will notice that message in that mailing
list talk about the port of that branch of XBMC on the new TrimSlice device.
We are still working to find a solution to provide access to an image
for the general public but I do not have s a solution for that yet.

> Hey Folks,
> I was looking on http://wiki.meego.com/MeeGo-Meeting_IRC_Schedule for the date/time of the next MeeGo TV meeting and I don't see anything listed. Are there no regular MeeGo TV meetings or is the Wiki just out out date ? Or are the meetings not open to the public ?
> I was hoping to attend the meetings to become more involved in MeeGo TV. This is an area I'm greatly interested in both as an enthusiast and also in how it relates to my work with my employer.
> I was also talking on the #meego channel about the current state of MeeGo TV and lack of anything standard out there for me to make a image with mic2. I know that there's a block on the CE4x00 drivers that have held up getting a MeeGo TV reference release out there. But from the outside looking in, this project appears to have no momentum and made little progress other than drawing up some nice requirements for an industrial STB reference OS.
> Given the nature of how things tend to work with prior MeeGo reference releases, I'm guessing that there is lots of work going on behind the scenes and theres a potential for a big reveal to happen once it's reached a certain point.
> The majority of visible activity out there at the moment is from one or two community enthusiasts, getting XBMC builds done against different commercially available devices. Doing everything in their Community OBS accounts. See recent posts by Martin Brook and Brendan Le Foll and porting MeeGo + XBMC to the Trimslice nVidia Tegra hardware.
> I understand that by the very nature of the target audience, media consumption, there are lots of issues regarding licensed codecs etc. However, there are options there for the reference release to only include non-offending codecs, much like the Netbook/Tablet/Handset reference releases do at present.
> At the moment, MeeGoTV appears to be more of a CE4x00 adaptation project done behind closed doors rather than an open MeeGo project. I'd like to see that change. I understand the requirements and restrictions on having some things done behind closed doors, but the MeeGo TV project shouldn't suffer. There's room for both a generic MeeGo TV reference and a Sodaville adaptation.
