Running Kodi 17.1 and latest nextpvr.
Since upgrading to 7.1 when i try to create a Timer Rule with the "repeating guide" option an error is thrown.
"ERROR: PVR - PVR::CPVRClients::AddTimer - cannot add timer to client '1586518318': the command failed"

I tried creating one of the other options and then editing after its been acceptedy Kodi but that also throws an error.
If i go in to nextpvr and create a repeating recording then open up Kodi it's there with the repeating guide option.

So obviously the option is supported by nextpvr

Has anyone else experienced this issue or knows how to fix it.
Repeating recording created under version 16 are still there and working.
I'd hate to go back to running the older version of Kodi.

I've seen an error when creating a repeating timer generates no recordings (i.e. if there is a conflict), but for the most part creating timers through Kodi works for me. I know that doesn't help much, but at least there is hope we can figure this out.

Reproduce the problem, then post your logs over at the NextPVR forums (where you also posted the question) and we'll take look.
