I think you should open an issue on the pvr.vdr.vsni github as these builds include the latest available addon.

Thanks and will do..............

VDR/VNSI works fine here with latest builds.

Code:
23:03:38.455 T:1943175184  NOTICE: ADDON: service.multimedia.vdr-addon v9.0.104 installed

Outdated addon?

I uploaded a new build of vdr-addon last night - it's still 9.0.105 (the same version I uploaded 3 months ago) so the only change for anyone ahead using 9.0.195 is the use of the new gcc-7.2 compiler. @andiewill should try this version.

@Milhouse
The Login-Problem witth SSH is a littlebit strange. I tried a clean install using the latest officially version of Libreelec and updated it to #0819. After the Update the Login works fine, but it takes a long time until the NIC of the RPi was up and i can connect via putty or Filezilla.
But after one or two reboots of my RPi the problem appears again. A canĀ“t connect to the RPi via SSH, SFTP or SMB.
I dont use a public key for login, only User/PW. This evening i will give it a new try, perhaps its also a problem with my Desktop-PC or my network at home.
Thanks for Help

@AndiMandi is this wired ethernet or WiFi? DHCP or static/manual? I'm using wired dhcp on an RPi3 and the connection is established about 10 seconds after powering on - you can try enabling "Wait for network" in LE Settings to avid starting Kodi before the network is "up". If it takes much longer than 10 seconds on a wired network then look at your network setup. Also, as far as the network connection is concerned, I don't believe these test builds should be much different from 8.0.2.

Are all the PVR addons back in the nightly builds yet.

Regards Bucky
No. The following are not included (as they don't currently build):
Code:
pvr.argustv
pvr.filmon
pvr.mediaportal.tvserver
pvr.nextpvr
pvr.njoy
pvr.pctv
pvr.stalker
pvr.vbox
pvr.wmc

It's up to the add-on maintainers to update their add-on. Obviously if they don't they'll be dropped from the Leia repo at some point. If your favourite PVR add-on is in the above list then you should open an issue on the appropriate github (check first that there isn't already an open issue).


Done, Thankyou.

Fingers crossed mediaportal gets updated, its the only one that works well with windows...

I've merged a partial fix for the PVR API change. This should make the addon available again in the next build. Note that the performance is not optimal yet as I'm having some issues with the PVR API changes that need to be resolved first.

Thanks @margro, so long as it builds I'll be able to include it again.

All sorted......After a play around with different settings plugins and advice from the members etc, the thing that worked to get live tv going was to enable the DVB drivers for TBS (CrazyCat) plug in, never used to have to do that before but hey it works with a clean install.

Thanks, yes I can confirm this started with build #0722.

It's OMX specific - disable OMX (leave MMAL enabled) and you won't experience this behaviour.

@popcornmix: To reproduce, navigate to a TV show in the library, click "Play" on "Season 1", then click the "SkipNext" button on your remote (or "texturecache.py input executeaction skipnext" / "kodi-send --action=skipnext") to skip from SE01E01 to S01E02 etc. With OMX enabled (and in use, ie. h264 video) the Kodi GUI will freeze on the first skip (it's fine when using MMAL only).

Since it could be playlist related I tried reverting PR12545, but that had no effect.

Its working well enough to use, only issue i see is the slow channel switching with occasional crash, im sure this will get sorted in time.

Thanks so much

Kind Regards
