kodi 16 nightly - which verison?

Postby ashley » Wed Sep 30, 2015 11:29 am

I needed longpress support on Kodi which is only available on the nightlies within the last 5 days for v16 on Kodi.
Longpress allows access to the context menu by holding down a button press (essential for deleting recorded tv content).
When I go into the pvr section it shows the version of dvblink as 1.11.6.
On the dvblink site it shows the arm version as 1.9.13.1

which is the correct one - reason why is I'm finding on the latest 16 nightly, I'm seeing kodi hang when collecting guide data and just wanted to eliminate version errors before i dig deeper.

The DVBLink addon in Kodi 16 is not up to date and still has to be updated with Kodi PVR API changes. It is expected to happen before or right after first public Kodi 16 beta release.

thanks - it does seem to be working under 16 provided that kodi is not set top automatically start up the last channel on entry.
It'll be great when 16 is properly supported under dvblink as that longpress to bring up the context menu is a really great feature and makes the android tv remote useful despite its limited number of buttons.

I've been running kodi nightly since the start now and stability is rock solid on the NVidia Shield TV with the dvblink plugin to Kodi.
@Oberon, you mentioned there might be some changes for the plugin for Kodi 16 once it reaches beta.
In the last 24 hours the kodi nightly is now marked kodi 16 beta1 so it would be great if you can relook at the plugin.

cheers

If you are on Ubuntu you can install the PVR client by doing on the terminal

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kodi-pvr-dvblink


Works on Kodi 16 Beta 2.
