I have done some more investigation.

If the episode is marked as unwatched, recording exit playback as it should. Although not asking to delete the episode.
If episode is marked as watched, the question to delete the episode appears when playback starts. And the recording does not exit at the end, just freeze Kodi and need to reboot.

Tried #202 and it had the same problem. Don't know when the delete recording at end feature was added? Maybe this bug has always been there? Haven't used this function before.

I think it might be worth posting about it in the pvr.myth support thread, unless it's a general PVR issue.

hey
I'm really new to this, I have raspberry pi 3, with your codi.
I've run every update that has been. I've pasted the code
dtoverlay = lirc-RPI
in config.txt
so my media center remote control works, but after # 0205, 05-Feb-2017
goes on a rampage, so I had to turn off the raspberry.
But the version of 204 works fine, and the former.
Do not read if there are others who have the same problem, my English is not good, then use google translate

The pctv452 patch had only been pushed to the libreelec-8.0 branch and not master. It's been pushed to master now, and will be in tonight's #0207 build.

Can you re-install build #0205 and, assuming you have the same issue, can you run the following commands and paste the results:
Code:
dmesg | pastebinit
journalctl -a | pastebinit
Thanks.

I am using #0206 with my Samsung Smart TV and CEC suddenly is working instantly for me again without the need to reselect kodi each time after input source switching.
Is there something CEC related in build #0206 what has not been in build #0205 and previous?

If yes: congratulations, then whatever you've done fixed it for me Smile Absolutey no need to read the text beneath!

---- if not ----

If not, then - I know this will sound very odd - the only thing, what I have done since I use this build what I have not done while using previous builds, is that today I played on my PS4 and pressed "Tools" -> "Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)" (talking about Samsung remote and TV menu) as if I would have to select kodi once again. Reason why I did this, is just because I have been curious if my PS4 would show up as CEC device in my TVs menu, now that I had to use this menu dozens of times to reselect kodi after input source switching.
Of course my PS4 didn't show up, but when I saw there was still "kodi" in the list, I pressed the onscreen button named "refresh". There are two onscreen buttons to the right of the CEC devices list, "refresh" and "abort", or in my German GUI it is "Aktualisieren" and "Abbrechen" and I used the refresh function rather frequently, because often after a new testbuild with altered "Pulse Eight CEC Adapter" or if I had changed some CEC options in libreelecs menu on my own I had to refresh this list to regain remote functionality, even if "kodi" was showing up. But I never before used this refresh function with another source than kodi until I for fun tried to connect my PS4 to the TVs remote.

Well, what can I say... I now can watch Amazon Prime and Youtube via Samsung Smarthub or switch the TV's input source to another HDMI input or internal "TV" and switch back to libreelec as often as I want and instantly am able to use the remote with libreelec without having to reselect kodi as source. My TV still says "Disconnecting Anynet" as ever (free translation from German) when using the smarthub, but right after terminating Amazon prime or Youtube and switching back to libreelec I can use the remote with it.

I know all that doesn't make much sense but I swear that's all what I did today what might be different from the other days...Huh Maybe refreshing the devices list while another source than kodi was active has somehow resetted my TV's or AVR's way to handle active CEC devices?

Not to my knowledge.

Okay, then I hazard a guess: the problem when many of us had to reboot whole libreelec system until CEC could be used again after switching sources seems to be fixed for most (all?) of us since several builds. The remaining issue (we Samsung users have to tell the TV to use "kodi" as device to control via CEC after using Smarthub or other input) is suddenly fixed for me now without further changes to libreelec's CEC, so this might be our not so smart Smart TV's and not something with libreelec itself.

Have you turned your TV off at the mains for 30 seconds, and then tested with #0206+ again?

This is an add-on feature. Please ping the pvr.mythtv maintainer to make him aware of the problem. @janbar

The feature worked with krypton rc1. I didn t checked again. The dialog box is opened when kodi set the recording as watched. So not related with replay the show. Kodi set the recording as watched after show has been watched and so after playback was stopped. Probably it is very slow on the PI and the delay for kodi to set the recording is long enougth to make trouble. Also it could show your hardware is overloaded.
Seems a dead lock occurs when box has been opened during the retry playing. I know to have similar issue with xbmc in previous release. What I can do to avoid this situation is to check if playback runs before trying to open the dialog.

Still the same cec problem with switching the tv off via cronjob. The last version that worked (mostly) was #0113. Tested all versions up to #0207.
But: after switching off Kodi didn't react on TV remote commands anymore until rebooting. When rebooting the TV always switches to "on". That's annoying.
Nevertheless: Milhouse version of Kodi is still my favourite one...
