Thanks - it appears as if your client doesn't send show name. Just title which is channel title. Interestingly it does send a plot summary but still no show name. I have a dig around the Json Kodi information and see if there is anything PVR specific.

On another note - need to do a bug fix update for latest 1.269 build for windows 8 and above. Disables dpi scaling for these builds of windows currently. (If you have any dpi issues go back to 1.268). 1.269 fine for Windows 7 and will update to 1.270 soon for all.

Might need to bring that up with PVR client - as it doesn't send fanart, so because it is not sent obviously Frontview+ cannot display.

Hi glenn!

I know that frontview is only running on windows. Is it possible to run the kodi frontview addon (the server) on a libreelec system? If yes, how to install the addon? I think its auomatically installed when installing frontview. Is it possible to build a separate kodi frotntview addon (the server) or can i simply copy the folder from the windows installation?

Thanks

Hi
Should be possible to just copy the addon folder to the libreelec install. The addon is written in python so should work across different installs.

@GlennNZ,

I noticed a couple of days ago that FronView+ is no longer able to control the currently playing media.  Pause, STOP, Previous, Next, etc do not work anymore.  It shows Kodi as connected (to FrontView Kodi addon and respective port).  Fanart works correctly.  The only thing that changed was my Kodi version to 17.4 DSPlayer build.  Is this reproducible for you?  Or, do I need to post a debug/trace log?  Thanks for all your development time and support.

Hi
Thanks for the message and I have good news, bad news.

Does work.

Tested Dsplayer 17.4 and FV+ Build 270.
Play, Stop, Arrows, Back - all function on my testing with network connection/different computer.

I would wonder whether you have enabled Kodi WebServer?
Particularly the allow remote control 2 buttons? As Below
(the FV remote would fail to connect without the rest being correct Username/pass/port etc.)

I had forgotten to enable the option in Kodi for letting other systems remote control it.  Also, I didn't have the username specified.  Thanks!

While I have your attention, I've been meaning to ask you a couple of questions I think you might know the answer to (sorry if they're off topic):

1. I like to play music playlists in kodi in the background (minimized) while playing PC games in fullscreen.  If I press FF/REW to change the song in FrontView+, Kodi steals focus; causing the game to minimize itself to the Windows Taskbar.  I also can reproduce this when sending FF/REW commands via json rpc directly.  Can you think of any way at all to send REW or FF remotely to Kodi (without messing with the current fullscreen application)?

2.  Do you happen to know the json command that pauses/plays DSPlayer?  I can only use the below commandline for the native Kodi player.  I tried asking on the DSPlayer forum thread; but nobody seemed to know the answer; at least, there weren't any responses to my question.

Code:
curl.exe" -i -X POST -d "{\"jsonrpc\": \"2.0\", \"method\": \"Player.PlayPause\", \"params\": { \"playerid\": 0 }, \"id\": 1}" -H "content-type:application/json" http://127.0.0.1:8091/jsonrpc >nul 2>&1
