Kodi 15 DVBlink PVR add-on

Postby RTK » Mon Jun 22, 2015 3:41 am

What is the current status of DVBlink PVR add-on for Kodi 15? With Kodi 15 beta 1, the DVBlink PVR add-on included is an older version. As the most recent DVBlink PVR add-on (1.9.13.1 for Kodi 14.x Helix) isn't compatible with Kodi 15, are there plans or any timline for releasing an updated PVR add-on for Kodi 15?

The official addon repository fr Kodi 15 was updated a long time ago. We will check with integrators what the status is.

Upgrade to Beta 2. Addon has been updated to 1.10.something and is confirmed as working.

Does DVBlink add-on version 1.10.5 included with Kodi 15 beta 2, have all of the same features/functionality as latest version for 14.x, ie DVBlink PVR add-on 1.9.13.1 ?

Oberon, could you please clarify differences if any?

Thank you

For me it works exactly in the same manner. Is there something specific you are looking for?

I'm trying the latest Windows Kodi 15 Nightly builds and 1.10.5 appears to have the latest features such as series recordings.

KODI 15 freezes up every time I try scheduling a recording. I have DVBLink 5.1 running on a Synology NAS. I tried both the Windows and Android versions of KODI 15 RC 1. I also tried a nightly build for Windows. All freeze up when I try scheduling a recording.

KODI 14 works fine.

Is anyone else able to schedule a DVBLink 5.1 recording under KODI 15?

Anyone with a Synology NAS have this working?

I have DVBLogic 5.1 and Kofi 15 and no issues. So the difference must be in the fact that your DVBLogic is running on the NAS and mine is running on Windows

Hi all, just registered to reply to this topic.

I experience the same problem as AEBogdan above: Kodi 15 freezes up every time I schedule a recording with DVBLink PVR client...

My setup:
- DVBLink server 5.1.0 on Synology DS415+ NAS
- HDHomeRun HDHR3-4DC tuner
- Kodi 15 (beta 2 en RC1) on Android (tested on Minix Neo X8-H en Galaxy Note 3)
- DVBLink PVR Client add-on version 1.10.7

Last week recording still worked OK (with add-on version 0.10.5 or 0.10.6), so I think the new add-on 0.10.7 broke something.
After trying multiple different skins in Kodi I think the 'series recording dialog' contains or causes the freeze: skins without this dialog (e.g. 'Bello') don't freeze on scheduling a recording...

Can I upload a log file or try some things to help identify the exact problem?

There were changes to addon code, which were done by Kodi team without our supervision. That's the reason why it misbehaves now.
We will have a look at the addon at the end of this week.

Is there a way to roll back the add-on to version 0.10.5 on Android? Can we download a .zip from somewhere and install the older add-on manually in Kodi?

With 15 RC1 I'm getting crashes. If I use the June 27th nightly it's fine... here's the log I posted at Kodi's forum.

I'm using Kodi on the NVidia Android TV. Kodi is hanging on a regular basis, even when I'm not even in the TV menu. I've checked with other users in the Kodi forum, and other users of the NVidia Android TV are not having the same issues that I'm having. The main difference between them and me is that I'm using the DVBLink AddOn.

Last night I disabled the DVBLink AddOn to confirm that it really is the culprit. No hanging so far, but I have not used Kodi enough yet to really say with certainty that the hanging is gone. In fairness, at this point I can't say for sure that the Kodi issues are caused by DVBLink.

With the DVBLink AddOn turned off, I need an alternate way of playing my recorded shows, but unfortunately the DVBLink native Android app has issues running on Android TV. I've cobbled something together to get it running, but it certainly isn't ideal (check out this post for details https://forum.dvblogic.com/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=28921#p104676).

It is funny that while DVBLink is the best solution that I've found on the back end (running on a Synology NAS), on the client side it seems to be the weakest link. While it may not be DVBlogic's fault that the Kodi AddOn is misbehaving, it certainly is DVBLogic's fault that they haven't put any effort into getting their native app running on the Android TV. The NVidia Android TV was announced months ago, and the Nexus Android TV was released long before that. MXPlayer had an update optimized for the NVidia Android TV before the device was even released for sale.

Sorry for that bit of venting, but I'm quite disappointed at all of the issues that I'm having with my system at the moment.

As for dvblink client application for android - at the moment work is underway to improve functionality and compatibility/fault tolerance with Android 5.x
As for alternative DVBLink PVR AddOn for Kodi - you can use DLNA client included in Kodi ( a few main functions of dvblink server you can use with it, such as watching Live TV and Recoreded TV )
Also just for watching Live TV or Recorded TV i often use such android app like BubbleUPnP
NETGEAR RNDU2000; Synology DS112j, DS 212j, DS213+, DS 712+; Western Digital WD ex2; Asustor AS3, RPI2 ...
PCTV 460,461e,292e; TT 4400, 4650CI;DVBSKy S960; DD octopus net; Inverto sat2ip multibox; TBS DVB-C ...

Thanks for the suggestion. Before buying my NVidia Android TV I as using an ASUS O!Play, and was watching my recorded shows using DLNA. It works fine, but the lack of metadata (such as episode descriptions) for the shows is a bit of pain. Going back to DLNA will certainly feel like a huge step backwards, however, it'll likely be good enough until the glitches get worked out.

I'll give it a try. Thanks again.
