v17 Duplication of recording icon on guide
#1
i'm noticing on occasions (usually on re-starting kodi) that the recording timer icon is either misplaced or duplicated: see my screen shots:


Below i selected the "Premier League Show" as a series recording and the icon is on the channel above - although the recording is set correctly

This is a series record that has been set for months for "Football Focus", as you can see, it looks like i have a timer set for every channel for that time. although i can confirm i dont!

Not 100% sure, but this reads like a problem with the dvblogic pvr client add-on as this works just fine with other backends.

It would be nice if someone from Kodi team could merge the pull requests:

I have the same problem with the DVBViewer Recording Service add-on Kodi Krypton. Usually it starts to happen when Kodi has been running a day or two without a restart. I've noticed that if I have set for example one timer on one channel starting at 21.00, the timeline shows a recording/timer icon on every channel that has a program starting at 21.00. DVBViewer addon on Kodi Jarvis doesn't have this issue.

Kodi after being on for a couple of days. Ghost timers on channels 10, 12, 13 and 14. Real timer on channel 17.

After restarting Kodi. Real timer on channel 17 and no ghost timers.

Ahhh looks like it's been merged? i think that means it will be in tomorrow's nightly, doesn't it?

@maxtherabbit thanks for the info. If it happens with others backend it's most probably a Kodi pvr core issue. I will look into it.

Yes a restart does appear to clear the issue, although it also appears on my laptop running Kodi 18, which isn't on all the time (My HTPC is) and when i first fire up Kodi i get the issue, restarting it clears the issue.....

Not sure you two guys are actually talking about exactly the same problem. I looked yesterday very careful through the related pvr core code and so far I was not able to find anything suspicious with regard to the problems reported here. At the moment I still think that we're facing separate pvr client add-on issues here, though I cannot be 100% sure.

One of you guys is reporting a misplaced timer icon directly after startup, the other one reports misplaced timer icons after a while when using Kodi. Technically, this might be two completely different problems.

I found a way to make those ghost timers appear. I just need to tune to a channel and when I stop playback the ghost timer has appeared the way I described in the previous post. On some channels it takes multiple tunings to happen and on some channels it happens after the first try. I don't normally do lots of channel surfing so that's why I didn't notice it before.

I can run the latest nightly on my HTPC and see how long it takes for the "Ghost timers" appear (after a restart), or even try and replicate what maxtherabbit is describing above...

Ok tested latest nightly on my always on HTPC, started up Kodi 17 (in portable mode) i got the timer issue as described above, restarted left Live TV running for about an hour, stopped it (as i had to go out!) and about an hour later (on my return) i now have duplicated timers icons for all my series timers for all channels where the programs start at the same time...

Not sure if that proves that the 2 issues are related or not! i did try to replicate what Maxterrabbit was describing by tuning into a channel and stopping the stream but had no success.

I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the EPG updating? e.g i have mine set not to update while Live TV is running, So mine probably updated while i was out and hence the issue appeared?

Happy to keep testing to prove whether this is a addon or Kodi core issue, just tell me what to do! cos i'm not sure anymore....

I am having the same problem with Krypton beta 2 and the DVBLink PVR:

The ghost timers are there as soon as I go into the guide. I can't see any logic regarding what ghost timers appear, most programs say they have a timer but some do not. Never saw this on Jarvis.

edit: after messing around a bit more, this is only getting more confusing. Different ghost timers appear on subsequent restarts of Kodi, occasionally I don't see any at all. Can you guys try clearing your EPG data when you're not seeing any or as many ghost timers? BEcause I just tried that and once the EPG had been refreshed almost every program had a timer again. I'll try and get a video of this posted shortly because it is difficult to explain.
