I'm glad you found the add-on useful. NHK is a personal favorite of mine as well.

Version 4.0.0 is available for Kodi V19 users.
Pretty much the same as the previous version except the VOD is now all 1080 HD.
Please note: this only works on V19 or above and is native Py3.

Version 4.0.1 is available in the v19 repo.
This version adds the ability to save shows to the library.
At the show level the context menu has 'Add to Library' choice.
The show's episodes are saved to the 'userdata/addon_data/script.module.t1mlib/shows/' directory in a folder under the show name.
You need to select 'userdata/addon_data/script.module.t1mlib/shows/' as a video source, select 'TV Shows" and use the TVDB scraper which has nearly all NHK programs.

Each episode is a .strm file named  'show_name YYYY-MM-DD [episode name].strm', e.g. 'Seasoning the Seasons 2019-09-08 [Tsukuda and Tsukishima A Summer of Fishermens Festival].strm'

The episode is scraped by the original airdate. Unfortunately for some older shows the original airdate is not available, only the last airdate. There is also an issue where the date given in the NHK metadata is a day off the date in TheTVDB.com.  In those cases, the date in the filename will need to be edited to the date given in TheTVDB.com. The episode can be found in TheTVDB.com by using the [episode name] in the filename. I'm trying to find a better solution but I have yet to figure one out.

V 3.0.16 on Kodi 18.9 is not working for the past 2 weeks. It loads the program details but when select the program to view, it tries to load but reverts with no error. Can you please check that?
Thanks.

Please use V4.0.x available in the kodi.org repo. V3.y.y is no longer supported.

For some reason VOD for latest episodes of Japan Railway Journal are not available in listing. Latest episode available was aired on 29 April 2021 "Moka Railway: Pushing Forward with Steam" and five new episodes have aired after that.

If "Cool Japan" can be added to list of programs it would be great.

V4.0.2 installed here, add-on has been working fine but stopped playing any streams in the last few days. Loads the list of streams, but on attempting to play, get a 'check log' failure. Standard log here https://paste.kodi.tv/erirecofaq.kodi
