DVBlink no longer displays free space for recording drive

in Kodi, i no longer see free space reported by DVBLink
this issue might exist on places other than kodi but i dont know as that is where i use it

the issue started after i upgraded the drive that had the recorded files
it was a single 2TB Drive
and is now a dual 4TB RAID1

i did repair the database
recordings can be recorded and viewed and deleted
but free space is no longer reported
it just says unknown

the recordings page in the dvblink web page does not display free space
i was certain that it did previously

Does the DVBLink web client/mobile clients etc. display the correct size at the Schedule tab?

yes all other clients report properly
here are a few actual examples

RAID 1 disk set
DVBLink scheduler (WebPage) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Viewer Windows App) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Android App) shows proper free space
KODI does not

Single internal disk
DVBLink scheduler (WebPage) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Viewer Windows App) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Android App) shows proper free space
KODI shows free space

Single external disk
DVBLink scheduler (WebPage) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Viewer Windows App) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Android App) shows proper free space
KODI shows free space

External USB disk
DVBLink scheduler (WebPage) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Viewer Windows App) shows proper free space
DVBLink scheduler (DVBLink Android App) shows proper free space
KODI shows free space


Perhaps KODI expects the value in GB only and not TB
I have never had over a TB of free space before and now have 2TB free, previously I had less than 1TB free so it listed in GB
maybe there is one invalid character or something related to GB/TB

also in KODI no matter what disk is used it keeps saying dvblink 5.0 but I have 6.0
this tells me that the API and/or plugin is not liking something about the value

If the free space displays correctly in all client except the Kodi, then i may assume the recordings work as they should and it is just some "metadata" issue (no so important). Anyway it will be considered.

i discovered something by accident regarding this, this week while testing something else
i had an older kodi setup with pvr adon 2.15 on a pi2 box
in 2.15 the free space is displayed

not sure about 2.16
as i dont have it

as soon as it uypdated to 2.17
the free space is not displayed

something changed between these versions
probably api related but this should help you find where the issue is from
