Channel switching from OSD channel list not working
#1
Hi there,

I have noticed that in the last nightlies I can´t change channels from the DialogPVRChannelOSD anymore. If I'm in fullscreen and pick a new channel from the list it simply exits me to the main menu of xbmc. Tried different skins - seems it has been introduced withn the nightlies at beginning of April.
From within EPG view channel switching is working ...

I also noticed that the prev/next channel group handling has changed - not sure if it has anything to do with it.


Cheers,

With 12.2 I can’t use the number of the channel nor the OSD menu nor the up and down arrows to change channels. I only can change channels from the channel list.

12.1 and 12.0 doesn’t have this problem.

I have tested it in Windows and Linux with same result.

You are right tried the numbers as well - not working too. Seems to be related to watching live tv and then trying to change the channel - whereas it is working from the epg channel list.
I'm on windows - tried 12.2 and latest nigthlies again. Still persists. I'm using dvbviewer addon - just to mention as it could as well be related to the pvr addon we are using.

Which pvr addon do you use?

Which pvr addon do you use?

I use an external binary add-on to see IPTV channels from my spanish ISP, Movistar. Infinbox IPNA Module (backend) and XBMC Add-on

But I have also tested the issue on pvr demo with same result.

Good news - as we have seen no progress here.

I guess I will have to setup my environment in order to compile on my own Wink

You'd better poke the addon authors instead patching the old hack back into the code. Channels switch works perfectly fine with tvheadend and vnsi. The log mentioned by the trac ticket shows that selecting a new channel just times out. Default scan timeout is 10 sec. After this period eof is assumed and playback stops.

The pull request mentioned above which "broke" channel switching for addons using a particular method was open for quite a while and we have paged other addon devs but did not get any response.
Would be great to get feedback here if this fixed the issue for what addons.
