1. Shouldn't the genre listed in the guide be carried over to appear against each recording?

2. Shouldn't there be a user interface to set genre colours in the guide? None of the genres listed in my guide trigger a colour.

Hi Branksome,

That's a good idea, I have added it to our feature request list

Genre are saved in an xml file
To edit the Genre type xml with the type you have in your EPG - the xml can be found @ C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\addons\pvr.vbox\resources\category_to_genre_types.xml

<category lang="en" genre-type="sports">special events</category>
<category lang="en" genre-type="sports">sports magazine</category>
<category lang="en" genre-type="sports">football</category>
<category lang="en" genre-type="sports">basketball</category>
<category lang="en" genre-type="sports">hurling</category>
<category lang="en" genre-type="sports">darts</category>

The genre type = is Kodi genre and the atribute between > < is the EPG category name

Thanks Vbox. I appreciate that

Thanks. Where would that file be on a RP (Librelec) and with SPMC on Android?

Presumably the lack of a user interface for this is a restriction with the Vbox add-on
