storage card is visible in system as /storage/fakeUuid and i can read/write in ES file explorer.
i created a recs folder "rec", but the IPTV Recorder won't set recordings to it and even create a new folder.
in kodi.log there is only this error: 10:43:41.896 T:18446744073432500528   ERROR: Create - Error creating /storage/fakeUuid/rec/r
 You have to enable "adoptable storage" to be able to write there.
is this option somewhere in kodi, or it's a android system thing?

i see now it's android system thing. will do some more research. tnx

it's all set now. i have sd card adopted on my tv box. not planning to remove it so i set recording folder to it.

i have another question about iptv recorder plugin, since i'm planning to stick with it for my recordings. it seems that my iptv provider alows only one connection to the iptv stream at the time, so when there is recording in progress and if i select to watch another channel, recording just stops without notice. how ffmpeg is behaving in this situation? is it possible to "lock" recording so that while recording is in progress, and only one stream from provider is possible, the add-on disables selecting another program? 
or at least, to have some kind of visual information in epg guide osd that programme is set to be recorder by iptv recorder add-on?

 Simple answer: No.
It would be really hard to try to block other connections in other addons or the pvr while it is recording using ffmpeg.
It is possible. But not by me.
Try to find a source that isn't so stingy.

I might be able to put in some kind of background notification when something is recording.

how does the option "Hide Channel Names if Logo Exists" works?
in my xmltv epg file there is "icon src" tag and in my epg guide i can see channel logos. i have even downloaded all channel logos in one folder and names matches with "channel id" tag in xmltv. but in iptv recorder i can't see logos.

Code:

<channel id="bbc-prime">
<display-name>BBC Entertainment</display-name>
<url>http://www.bbcprime.com</url>
<icon src="https://tvprofil.com/cdn/400x200/4/img/kanali-logo/bbc-entertainment-logo.png" />
</channel>

i saved bbc-prime.png in my logo folder for above example.

 The tvg-logo attribute in the m3u overrides the icon.
If that doesn't exist and the icon attribute does in the xmltv and no icons show up then there is a bug in the code.

"Hide Channel Names if Logo Exists" just gives you a bit more space for program info in the channel listings if your channel logos are easy to read.

i don't have tv-logo attribute in my m3u file, only in xmltv and in dedicated folder.

I am having troubles understanding how to install FFMpeg on my android box in order to run IPTV Recorder..    I got it to work just as described on my laptop.

I tried to different .apk's from the playstore - https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai....ffmpeggui  &  https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai...ffmpeg.cli

But I can't seem to figure out where they installed to on my device in order to point IPTV Recorder at them.

I also put Khang's ffmpeg-3.3.2.tar.bz2 on a thumb drive and moved it to my box..  but I can't seem to extract the .bz2 file. 

I'd rather run an .apk then extract a .bz2

Any guidance ?

 Don't use an apk.
Kodi won't have permissions to get to its version of the ffmpeg binary program.

Make sure the version of ffmpeg matches your architecture exactly.
Look at the top of your kodi.log file for details or use the "Droid Info" app from the Play Store.

There are lots of utils to open bz2 files.
I use 7zip on Windows.

 Extract it in Windows. Copy it over or point to it from a Windows Share (smb).
