Kodi frequently skips live OTA while NextPVR plays flawlessly
#1
Going crazy here. NextPVR plays ota live with zero issues.Kodi plays recorded video just fine but live OTA viewing seems to pause every few seconds making it essentially unuseable. This is a fresh Kodi 18.3 install with NextPVR installed as the PVR backend. The host machine is Win7 Pro, 8gb ram, "latest" updates, Hauphaugh Dual OTA usb device feeding the OTA signal via HDMI to a large flat screen. Im trying to switch from WMC due to its frequent corruption of its EPG data. NextPVR is working great! Any suggestions appreciated. The bit of log info below is repeated constantly when viewing live OTA channels. Ive had ZERO issues with the Hauphaugh device over the last 4 or 5 years. No hardware changes in the last several years either.

Snippets are not that useful.  Turn on Kodi debug logging, make sure that you have Real-Time mode enabled in the settings, duplicate the problem and provide your Kodi log.   For best support also supply your NextPVR logs here or on the NextPVR forum.

Thanks to Karellen's post concerning rewind in live OTA I bumped the  NextPVR  Live TV Stream to Extended Timeshift and all seems to work well now. No more pausing. I consider the OP matter closed.

I understand, thank you for the tip. I will use it if/when I need additional help.

Great glad you got it sorted out.  I will summarize the v4 modes again for others who come to this post.

Real Time  - most reliable fastest channel change, no timeshift best for debugging
Timeshift - some buffering, known to hang in at times especially when seeking.
Extended Time Shift - buffer time quite long,  good playback history, can record past portion of current show.

In v5 of NextPVR, timeshift modes are changing.
