TO the developer of NEXTPVR,can you please fix this so it works properly,

What do you lot think..??

I am so sick of it,and my parter is too,she would like the dam TV to work properly and not to pause a program for 15 mins to come back and play and not freeze kodi.( I am getting a lot of flack from her)

This needs sorting.

Just look in the video folder and you will see it got video after video of live TV ...I was on Channel 5 and its has 12 live tv videos for channel 5 WHY and 3 for ITV...WHY its breaking up the video so if you try to skip back you only go so far as the video goes,it don't jump to the next video,thats why it freezes live TV,it should record in one file,it would make it easier to skip back and forward or pause,it wouldn't lost its place..

I have a AVer Media DVB-T USB2.0 and MXQ PRO Slim(for TV only) With Kodi 17.1 Krypton running NEXTPVR and NEXTPVR Server on Windows 10 Pro 1703 build 15063.138.

I love Kodi,been using it for year when it was called Xbox Media Center (XBMC),I still have it on my Xbox Original.I still have the first version on it.

Kodi is "Helpful" in a lot of ways..:)

2.1 General conduct
  • Be civil.
  • Polite language is required.
  • Respect the coding efforts of Kodi devs and other coders. Calling a program or add-on “worthless” will be automatically deemed as disrespect.
  • Respect the efforts of the forum moderators and those answering questions or writing guides. They are working for free in a fairly thankless job.
  • Make an effort to read any sticky threads in the forum you're posting in, along with FAQs and Online Manuals.
  • Be patient. Kodi's user base is global and there are many more forum users asking questions than writing answers. Please wait at least 24 hours before bumping your own post unless you have new information to add.

i'll let @sub3 decide if he has any interest in assisting you.

Sorry I have a habit of saying thing the way they are,I say the truth even if it hurts,cos I have Autism and say things and it just comes out,so sorry it will not happen again.

Has anyone know why NEXTPVR freezes Kodi,if you pause live TV for more 15 mins,well I tested it yesterday and its less than that,I paused it for 5 mins and its still does it,what happens is you pause it then come back and play it,it plays for about a minute then stop live TV and you can't rewind or fast forward and if you press stop Kodi freezes than you have to force close it in Settings/Apps...?

Any Ideas..?

If nextpvr is cutting the recording into pieces it sounds like a reception problem.

You can't delete the beginning of a file, so to create a buffer covering the last 20 minutes or so (without having to keep all the video since you started live tv), the app creates a series of small buffer files, each covering about 5 minutes, and it deletes the oldest one when it's no longer required. ie, effectively giving you a moving window of the last 20 minutes or so of tv.

Kodi isn't aware of there being multiple files. It just asks for the stream and the streaming server automatically switches to the appropriate file as it streams. Kodi used to be better at skipping in live tv with NextPVR, but it got broken with recent versions of Kodi. Kodi v18 introduces a new model for skipping in live tv, and the NextPVR addon has not yet been updated to support this.

That is only live tv though. For playback of recordings, there is only the single file on disk, and skipping etc works fine there.

Yes recoding is fine no problem, I used 16 and 17.1 and live TV dose the same, I have had live TV on from 1.30.pm to now, Watching the news now on ITV and Next pvr is ok, been playing continuously fine but if I pause it to make a cup of tea and then come back and press play it will play but maybe stop or not it depends on how long you pause it.

Thanks for posting, I guest it was Kodi doing it with all the changes it has..Smile

If I want to watch a program I could record it then play the recording then will not have the live pause problem..Wink
