Sorry this is a repeat post. I can't see how to delete.

Hello
I am new to Kodi and Media center. I have managed to get everything running on a single machine. The Media
Portal server, TV guide, etc. my goal is live TV from remote clients (Nvidia Shield, Mac, Android smart phone).

My problem is that when I select TV on any of the remove clients, I get the guide, select a channel and then I see a loading message. It then times out and no live video. Same symptoms on all clients runing Kodi.

Can anyone point me to the logical cause or fix.

Thanks,

Kevin.
Have you installed the Kodi plugin on the TV server?

Without logs, no-one will be able to help you. We can't guess what is going on, and you don't even say what Kodi version you are using.
Note that for an remote client, you need to share your Timeshift and Recording folders and make sure that Kodi can access them. Otherwise the addon won't work.
