Question @popcornmix and milhouse: I read that Netflix and even Amazon is working again with the agile branch and popcornmix also has the solution to make it work on the rpi! That's some awesome work, thank you!

I was wondering:

1)if there is an eta on when this is going to be merged back / available in this builds?

2) will this also fix the opengl issues for n64 emulators on the rpis?

Thank you! Where can I donate you too support?

Is the DVBSky S960 V2 sat-box supported in the 18.0 release?
I can't get it working under tvheadend server...
dmesg: DVB: adapter 0 frontend 0 frequency 9750000 out of range (950000..2150000)

We are waiting for the necessary agile commits to be submitted to the kodi tree. We'll likely start including them in these builds at that point.
PR11765 was a pre-requisite for this which has just been merged after a number of weeks.
I would have thought "a few weeks" is most likely (more likely than "a few days" or "a few months"), but it's hard to predict.
Quote:2) will this also fix the opengl issues for n64 emulators on the rpis?
No, that is not related. retroplayer doesn't currently support opengl which I imagine is required for n64 emulation.
Might be worth following this thread as that would involve adding
opengl rendering to retroplayer. But I suspect that will be more likely "a few months" away.

@Aux_: Thanks for reply. The channel scan always fails on my pi3 with build #0401.
What version is yours? Any special packages/drivers on your system?

Thank you for the answer! It looks like I just have to wait a few more weeks!

About the donation: how can I help? I bought 3 kodi rpi cases and hope this helps, but I am so happy to see this development and would like to assist more if I can! I will support debugging, but I fear my coding is rusty and far from able to help here unfortunately

I use this receiver since Kodi 17, I make new nights builds from time to time, now works with #0404. This receiver works well and I had with him never problems.
Maybe what is not set correctly in TVheadend? Look at my settings.

You can donate to kodi: https://kodi.tv/contribute/donate
Or to LibreElec https://libreelec.tv/about/ (there is a donate button on this page).

Continuing to buy Raspberry Pi and use it for kodi is enough to keep me supporting it.

Confirmed. Problem is in 330 and not 329.

Thanks!

I can also confirm this 0329 is good, pvr timer issue starts 0330..

Thanks all. Issue is confirmed, developer is aware and will produce a fix that I'll include as soon as it's available.

@milhouse, finally figured out what was happening after near trying every build in the last 3 weeks, raspian, openelec and osmc.

Seems my isp rolled out a new customer feature that lets all customers connect to other customers wifi without a password and hence spliting the wifi to another customer easy SSID and messing with the wifi on the pi only.

what they said in the email i noticed..

Quote:As an **** broadband customer you can connect safely and securely to over 100,000 WiFi hotspots nationwide with **** WiFi. No more having to ask for passwords as you will automatically connect to the WiFi of other **** broadband customers. Plus, with **** WiFi you can surf to your heart's content on your mobile without eating into your mobile data!

And what's even better, it takes the hassle out of you having to look for your password when your friends and family visit, as they will automatically connect to your WiFi. Don't worry your personal information will be safe and secure and data usage won't be affected.

...they offered a opt out link in email which stopped the issue after about an hour.

Wil try it again with a new Libreelec from scratch with latest update from Milhouse.

That didn't help...Mux scan fails...
