Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows
(2015-09-07, 15:56)*Roma* Wrote: Isengard DSPlayer 15.2 RC1 - 06 September 2015 (9c30400)

Download: Isengard DSPlayer 15.2 RC1 EXE 06 September 2015 (PVR Test version)

New features for MediaPortal TV-Server and ArgusTV backends:
  • Live TV fast channel switching (don't stop timeshift)
    Don't stop an existing timeshift session when switching to a new channel. This makes channel switching faster.
    Regular channel switching will be used in cases of changing of stream url(SD<->HD channel switching or switching to channels with different audio/video streams)
  • Use UNC(=SMB) paths for Live TV
    UNC is faster with channel switching and video seeking.

ArgusTV Kodi Addon settings:
  • Set "Delay after tuning" greater then zero.

MediaPortal TV-Server Kodi Addon settings:
  • Set "Streaming method" to "ffmpeg".
  • Enable "Convert hostname to IP-address".

MediaPortal TsReader Filter for DSPlayer

Please post your feedbacks.
I think your method ConvertStreamURLToTimeShiftFilePath does return the wrong path. It does return the timeshift path of the server and not the unc path for the client.

My timeshift file is located on Z:\ on the server and this path will be returned to the client. But on the client there is no Z:\ drive of course. The method should return the unc path \\SERVER\Timeshift for example.

I fixed it by adding a net drive Z:\ that points to \\SERVER\Timeshift.

Can you have a look on it. Thanks in advanceSmile
