I don't know where the problem lies, but after using the Guide to set a recording in Kodi, if I edit to add padding, Kodi freezes and I eventually have to use Task Manager to kill it.

I have Kodi 17, using the PVR WMC Client.

This happens if I right-click on a guide program and select 'Record' and later return and edit to add the padding. I have tried this on multiple PCs running this configuration, with the same results.

If I, instead, right-click and choose 'Add Timer' and choose the settings, including the padding, I have no issue.

So, I have a workaround, which makes this not such a big deal, but I am wondering if others have noticed this or can try it and see if it is happening with their Kodi setup. I want to find if it is a bug that is prevalent or just my setup.

Thanks

I will try to reproduce, but in the meantime if you can post the serverwmc log (pastebin) after the crash of kodi that would be helpful.

I think I found the problem. Please download the 'Preview' version of serverwmc 1246 using the Updates tab of serverwmc and see if it solves the problem for you.

Okay...will do. Out of town, at the moment, so I will either remote in or wait until I get home. I will follow up with you.

Thanks

Alright, wasn't busy, so I went ahead and gave it a go.

The first two times I tried, everything worked great, so I guess you nailed it. I will post if anything changes.
