Cool!
Did not see this thread.... that's good news.
Will test asap, thanks! Of course I'm on a recent Helix already. Cool

I think I will take your approach to return/exit from several windows using the same key as for entering... is quite intuitive and matches the behaviour of many STBs.

BTW, the WAF of the current default button mappong and behaviour is really low in my house.So maybe an idea to include similar to the default remote.xm / keyboard.xml.

Again, thanks!

Request
Add option to mapp buttons in the "Programme info" window independent of keymaps in PVROSDGuide and also PVROSDChannels

It´t needed to use <info>Close</info> if we want to mapp<info>Select</info> mapp in <PVROSDGuide> and <PVROSDChannels> to get info button to open programme info window.

I have mapped
<PVROSDGuide>
<remote>
<back>Close</back>
<info>Select</info>
<menu>Close</menu>
<start>Close</start>
<guide>Close</guide>
</remote>
</PVROSDGuide>

What i'm looking for is a way to close Programme info" window with info button again after i have opened the window with info button
I think adding this will improve the pvr part in Kodi to behave more like a set top box.

I solved itNod
Add this to remote.xml , to make info button close "Programme info" window

Code:
<PVRGuideInfo>
    <remote>
      <back>Close</back>
      <info>Close</info>
    </remote>
  </PVRGuideInfo>

Here is my modded remote.xml and Lircmap.xml for Helix builds if someone wants to try it out

It`s made to get a better pvr experience with Mce remote, with info, start, select and left/right buttons (I don´t use timeshift)

Is there a list anywhere of which of the suggestions in this very long thread have been accepted? Rejected? Possible? Or is this really a brainstorming exercise?

Example

-Tv1 running and open timeline epg , sync to TV1 epg
-Change to Tv2 and open timeline epg , sync to TV2 epg
-Tv 2 running and open timeline epg and move marker to Tv 6 with out changing channel (Tv 2 still running) then close epg and back to full screen live tv and then open epg timeline again it should still be on Tv6.

should be fixed with https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/5401, but it's pending.


Still not synced always !
To reproduce

-Open live tv , start channel 1
-Open TVChannels again and change to channel 10
-Open timeline epg and close (dont do anything here)
-Press number 1 on remote and change channel to channel 1
-Open timeline epg and you'll se its left on channel 10, not channel 1 as expected.

Still hoping WOL support for the PVR is fixed. Right now (if the plugin supports it), Kodi will wake up the server when you startup Kodi, regardless of what you're about to actually do. So lets say you watch a movie instead, your PVR backend was needlessly woken up. But if you then go to watch Live TV after watching that movie (say 2 hours later), it won't wake up the PVR backend.

Simple fix and this is the logical way to implement this. Only wake up the PVR backend when you actually go into the Live TV "hub". This prevents needlessly waking up the PVR backend when you're not actually going to watch Live TV, and makes sure the PVR backend is awake at ALL times that you go to watch Live TV.

I'm not sure if we already send a WOL if we open a backend stream URL.

but mind, we need to contact the backend to fetch the necessary data (channels, groups, epg, timer, recordings etc.) on startup and according to your epg setting how offen do you want Kodi to fetch new data. BTW we check continuously if the connection disappears.

so not as easy as you describe Wink

Thanks for the response. ServerWMC, as an example, supports WOL of the backend. Why do you "need" to contact the backend on startup? Presumably there's still channel, epg, etc. data in the local Kodi database from the last time it retrieved that data from the backend, and that data can be refreshed when you go to actually view Live TV as opposed to doing it on startup. That avoids needlessly contacting the PVR backend every time you startup Kodi if you only intend to play a movie, music, etc. And ensures that it is when you actually do watch Live TV.

If Kodi's continuously checking the connection (which again I'd only do when the user enters the Live TV menu; who cares if the PVR backend is asleep while I'm listening to music), then Kodi can send the WOL magic packet if you don't get a response from the backend. That's about as easy as it gets.

EDIT: as an example, when you use an Xbox 360 as a Media Center extender, it doesn't needlessly wake up the Media Center PC every time you start up your Xbox. That would be silly. It automatically (and only) wakes it up when you launch Media Center on the Xbox 360, just as you would expect.
