Moved this here from the general support forum, in case a NexpPVR client addon dev can do something about it...

PVR.IsTimeShift is returning false even when timeshifting. Consquently, PVR.TimeshiftStart and PVR.TimeshiftEnd are invalid. This is with Estuary on Krypton, rrunning with a NextPVR backend on Windows. Not sure if this is a Kodi issue or something wrong with the backend? Of course, timeshifting is enabled in the backend and I can pause and skip around to my heart's content. Any ideas from the skinners?

I thought as much. Strange that it actually supports timeshifting underneath. Are you aware of other backends that correctly report timeshift start and end times?

Sorry, the NextPVR addon doesn't currently support this recent addition to the Kodi PVR API. I intend to add support for it in the future though.

The timeshift setting in the NextPVR addon advanced settings pre-date Kodi adding it's timeshift feature...so even though they sound the same, they're unrelated.

@sub3 recent addition? Hehe. It was added back in 2015, iirc ;-)

@aegidius pvr.hts (tvheadend) and pvr.vdr.vnsi definitely implement the timeshift status functions. There are others which I currently do not remember.
