Hi Oberon,

it's sad to hear that the development of this DVBLink app will not be continued. So, I'll ask again: Would you please consider to provide it as an open source project?

I think this would be a great opportunity for hobbyist developers to implement more DVBLink clients for the Android TV platform. This will be a big win for DVBLink!

The Theatre app seems to work a bit for live TV (I used version 1.0.1, issue with the scree size).
The 1.0.3 version does not seem to give me live TV anymore :(
Does it make sense to search for the DVBLink Live! app?

yes this is a good feature being able to integrate it with the built in android tv on the shield, would be really useful if you continued development or integrated it ot the app.

why not just merge the 2 and make the theatre app "discoverable" by the android live channels app?

I'm just busy testing an nvidia shield preview release. The release is based on Android TV 7 - the Live Channels option still works with the DVBLink backend but still has no PVR functions in android 7, which renders it less than perfect - but otherwise its looking pretty good. I really do think the dvblogic team should reconsider resurrecting the Live Channels integration as it is certainly maturing.
Android 7 has picture in picture support as well, but I guess this would need backend dvblogic changes to make android believe there are multiple tuners (which there are of course).

A Lot of people think it is a useful option from the above.

I think it is something to add back in or continue to develop.

Yep another vote for live channels into Android 7 (eg shield TV).
Come on @oberon , we really need this and you must have most of the code already as this used to work OK, it just needs a little love.
I'm surprised no single vendor has really got live and recorded TV working as well as MCE after all these years.
Even live channels is very much a work in progress.

+1! The Live integration is the reason why I use DVBLink - seamless integration into Android TV. If this goes away, I will not use DVBLink anymore...

I registered soley to add my voice to this topic and join all the people requesting that this app be updated. Although I greatly appreciate the effort that is put into the Kodi-addon and Theatre-app, both fail to pass the girlfriend-acceptance-test in my household. Live Channels might be a bit bare bones, but it integrates beautifully, it maps to the Guide-button on my tv-remote when using hdmi-cec and looks familiar enough that my girlfriend is comfortable using it.

So I urge you guys to please reconsider updating the app. If not, perhaps you can make it opensource or open up an api so someone else can work on live channels-integration.
