Switching channels taking 5+ seconds

However the real difference between your log and mine is it is taking you around 4 seconds just to create the demuxer that starts playback and here is it around 500ms.  I am not sure how much of that is due to timeshift mode, but it would be noticable and outside the control of the addon.

Wow! Thank you for testing that! I really appreciate that.  Where can I change the time shift setting?  So it seems that it's not a Kodi issue but an issue that I am having.

In the NextPVR addon settings.

So the addon is already set to Realtime already.

Here are my current logs.

I'm thinking the issue could be related to the artwork that is generated for each channel.  I turned off the artwork and it seemed to run a bit faster.  There is still artwork I can't turn off.  Do you think that could be it?  I also thought at first that running in window mode would make a difference. Not sure if that did.

Your first set of logs had timeshift enabled and 5 seconds to create the demux

your new logs with timeshift off are much faster

Thank you everyone! It's a lot better now.  I do suspect that there is still an issue when there is artwork loaded on the guide. Not sure what generates that artwork.  For example impractical jokers on Trutv will show artwork on the info bar.

Thank you all again! Much appreciated!

There will be artwork changes to go with improvements sub made in NextPVR v5 especially notable for users like you who are Schedules Direct subscribers.  I don't think the artwork thread is as big an issue as the timeshifting overhead.

Ah ok that makes sense. Thank you for all the information. I was comparing Kodi vs NPVR and looking for patterns.  Excited for V5!
