Hello everyone,

I know there are a lot of people that used this program and depended on it! If I had the skill to rewrite it I would. If someone with enough skill would take a shot at this I would be more than willing to debug, test & report 

Thank you.........

Moderator's:

It is time to mark this one as abandoned and no longer supported!

Developers: it is time to include this feature to the standard Kodi functionality. Make this a priority. This is imho the most essential addon ever. 

Nowadays there are so many features in what used to be xbmc. Which I don't need, but that's fine. But I just cannot understand why an addon like this is abandoned. 

On FireTV Cube, I can work with marcelveidts version, though it lacks some functionality and presents some bugs, at least it works. So this cannot be an impossible request. 

I do not understand what kind of project Kodi has become, I always thought of Kodi as something where this feature would have been essential. 

What is the Kodi vision nowadays??  

If you really must push Kodi to ever other levels, consider developing a server/client logic for all those, who would like to use "their" Kodi on more than one device. It's 2022.

Whilst we understand the frustration on users part I would like to remind people that Kodi is not a commercial project and all our developers make contributions for free in their own free time.

If people lose interest or their personal circumstances change they can often step away from the project. This includes the multitude of addons that people make available for Kodi.

The beauty of being an Open Source project is that anyone can contribute, create addons and submit PRs to the main project. If someone comes along with a compelling change or additional feature then Team Kodi will always take it into consideration.

To add to the above.

Features such as this are best served by addons as if we added everything to Kodi itself that would hugely bloat the code, and would actually have zero benefit, as whether an addon or in Kodi itself it needs a interested developer to maintain the code. So having this as part of the Kodi core won't magically make a interested developer appear.

Offloading functionality into add-ons is already like moving logic away from the main application.
Small(er) bits of code are much easier to handle by greater numbers of people/devs/coders, as is the case with any bigger project.

Believe it or not, I don't consider a TV Show Next Aired script as "essential". I never installed it, as I frankly don't see the need for it. Not everyone uses their Kodi device(s) the way you do. As with the proverbial Lego box, you pick the building blocks you need for what you want. As far as TeamKodi goes, we have lost some solid contributors over the years, so certain aspects of Kodi may have slowed down a bit. But we have no fixed deadlines to include or revive certain features. As already mentioned, this is a project run by volunteers, and they contribute as they see fit.

Not for long. :-)

Thanks for your feedback, and please note, though I vented somewhat this was not meant as a rant. 

As a simple user with no coding skills, I simply do not distinguish the ways a certain feature might be implemented.
I would connect a steam engine to my FireTV if that would be what's needed in order to use this feature. No disrespect. 

Let's say this was a desperate plea for the (this is subjectively, of course) ONE feature that is a real game changer.
More objectively perhaps, it is a feature that is singular in Kodi, AFAIK.
And although this does not reflect EVERY Kodi user, or even the majority (I humbly cannot imagine all the ways this software might be used),
perhaps it might be representative for quite a number of people, especially among those who enjoyed Kodi as "their" tool since its beginnings. 

Of course the (in every case generous) amount of time you developers invest in an open source project is limited and appreciated. 

And since I have no knowledge about the issues that are considered more vital or pressing, I abstain from judgement.
All there is left is hope that this feature won't disappear completely.
