AML LibreELEC 7.1 or WeTek Media Player(WMP) - Kodi Jarvis 16.1 + TvHeadend client:

- Play2 running LibreELEC Kodi Jarvis can use the TvHeadend server + client + single tuner in the one box. Smile
- For Android using WMP (Jarvis) a seperate, external TvHeadend server (ODROID C1 + Dual PS3 PlayTV DVB-T) had to be used.
- Excellent quality hardware deinterlacing
- Is a joy to use, once setup, makes for a cheap, pretty powerful PVR, Dual Tuners recommended tho.
- For me 7 day, dynamically updated Over the Air - DVB-T, EIT (Event Information Table) sourced - Grid Style EPG, all automatic
- Simple Timer Recordings can be setup with 2 or 3 presses of the remote using the Grid EPG.
- Comprehensive search functions and recording setup functions. Smart Automatic recordings as well (use this a lot)
- Red button access's Recordings list
- Green Pulls up the EPG and so on....
- Only PVR minus is No Live PVR Timeshifting - but you can playback content whilst it is still recording.

AML Android Kodi Krypton Beta + TvHeadend client:

- looks like its using poor quality Bob deinterlacing - stuttering & blocky - possibly using Software deinterlacing only and running out of CPU grunt.
- Android Mediacodec sucks at deinterlacing, see issues the Shield and FireTV has at the moment with deinterlacing and Mediacodec as well.
- I personally hate the new default TV interface layout with a passion, luckily new Skins will fix that, I'm not a fan of default Estuary Skin.
- I really have not gone any further due to the broken deinterlacing and stuttering playback.

AML LibreELEC devel. Kodi Krypton Beta + TvHeadend client:

- Last time I tested deinterlacing was a bit broken with same symptoms as above.
- Fractional refresh rates 23.976/29.97/59.94fps had bad video sync (the 41 second video frame upset issue, even after refresh switching)

- Android Lollipop + Kodi Krypton on AMLogic was a LOT better for (non TV content) video sync, provided you have decent Android Firmware underneath.

EDIT: the TV streaming & Deinterlacing Issues have turned out to be a bug in TvHeadend Client Addon with Kodi Krypton Beta.
Playing direct from the TV Servers HDD in Kodi Krypton without using TvHeadend Addon, at first glance appears to have no problems hardware deinterlacing 1920x1080i H264 content. However it appears there is no Full Motion video playback (two Footballs showing during fast action scenes) Sad
