first of all i want to decribe my setup:
1. htpc with mp 1.20 Server with tvserverkodi plugin 1.20.0.140, kodi 18 installed from windows store
2. 3 clients (1 pc and 2 notebooks) with windows 10 and kodi 18 installed from windows store
3. 1 client (smartphone) with android 7.1.1 and kodi 18 installed from play store
4. 1 client (tablet) with android 4.2.2 and kodi 16.1 installed from kodi homepage

before the update of kodi 18 i used kodi 17.6 on 1-3 with the streaming method ffmpeg. since the update this doesn't work anymore. i needed to switch to tsreader. on the tablet (4) ffmpeg is still working. 

is there a problem with ffmpeg and kodi 18?
It Looks like you encountered the same problem as I did: UWP SMB Thread

ffmpeg works for me if you don't install KODI from the app store, but instead install 17.6 from older releases:
HOW-TO:Install_Kodi_for_Android (wiki)
I used the ARM version noted above:

In some other forums, I think the MediaPortal PVR integration is different with different version of KODI. Remote viewing of TV/Recordings maybe broken/changed on future builds beyond 17.6.

hope this helps
