Any Information about an Update? It looks like that the development will not go on. Will this great piece of software leave the beta stadium and turn into a final version?
Any Information about new features that support the new features of Live Channels on Android TV?

Any Info is appreciated?

Hi, what is the current status of dvblink live?
I liked the way it integrated natively with the android TV live TV channels, but it needs refreshing to incorporate google API changes in respect to PVR functionality.
I'm aware of the theatre and regular apps but that is not what I'm looking for as whenever I try those there are too many stability issues for them to be used in a family environment.

Dumped Sky TV for being a waste of money

Hi Oberon,

in case the development of this DVBLink app for AndroidTV (with live channel integration) will not be continued, would you please consider to provide it as an open source project. I think this would be a great opportunity for hobbyist developers to come up with their own ideas for the Android TV platform.

is no-one else using the app with the shield and DD+? or does the app not pass through DD+ properly? clue, its clearly the latter! :)

Hello-

Any update, please, on the continued development of DVBLink Live? It offers a much more consistent live TV experience on Android TV than does DVBlink Theatre.

Thanks for your reply.

Further development of this app is not planned at the moment.
All further development will go into DVBLink Theatre app.

ah man. this is one of the standout features of android TV. the ever increasing number of shield users make it a perfect match for dvblink.

please - at least, can you merge the code into the new app please?

That's really sad news shutting down the DVBLink Live! App.
Android 7 gets PVR - features for the Live Channels - App and even with Andoid 6 on the Nvidia Shield TV it doesn't make sense (it's not good for the usability of Android TV) switching apps instead of zapping through channels from different sources.

Maybe it's in the development pipeline to integrate the Theatre App in Live Channels like Zatoo or all the others do????
