The way the Live Channels - TvHeadend Android TV App is progressing - I'm sure we will see, scheduling, recording and playback added soon.

I believe he's wanting playback of BD rips, so Live Channels is no help. Wink

But as I said, I'm pretty sure the problem comes from decoding MBAFF

For Interlaced OTA TV Usage on Android - the Live Channels App on Android TV devices is now a better option. Android Kodi Krypton is busted so far as interlaced video content support is concerned.

Last thing I would try is turning Mediacodec (Surface) hardware acceleration OFF. Use Mediacodec only. You have likely already tried that.
If Android Kodi Krypton is busted so far as interlaced video content support is concerned, then is there an older version of Kodi that does work for interlaced video on the Fire TV?

Interesting. MBAFF is used by all the main satellite and terrestrial broadcasters in the UK for their H264 HD 1080i broadcasts.
