bug with search based recording timers under Kodi

I have kodi 16.1 and 17beta1

under both systems
if there are more search based recording timers than standard/series recording timers
kodi fails to start, as when it launches the pvr and it reaches 50% of timers, it crashes

i have tested this with multiple number of recording timers
in all cases if you have more search based than standard/series recording timers it will crash
equal number is also ok

here are a few as an examples
1 standard / 0 search based =ok
1 standard / 1 search based =ok
1 standard / 2 search based =NOT ok - crashes
3 standard / 1 search based =ok
3 standard / 3 search based =ok
3 standard / 4 search based =NOT ok - crashes
5 standard / 3 search based =ok
5 standard / 5 search based =ok
5 standard / 6 search based =NOT ok - crashes

thats exactly it
but it only happens if you have more search based timers than standard/series
is this something that is already being investigated?
maybe this additional info will help.

Sounds like a Kodi bug to me.

sounds more like a bug with the dvblink plugin for kodi
this only happens if the dvblink plugin is loaded
and only with the above scenario which is all done from dvblink server
happens in kodi 16 and 17
i have also now just tested in 15

the dvblink team seems to frequently discard issues in kodi that are related to the dvblink plugin
it was my understanding that the dvblink plugin for kodi was developed and maintained by dvblink
is it not?

i am having a similar issue getting acknowledged for an issue i tracked back to starting in 2.16 of the dvblink plugin
still to this day does not exist in 2.15 or older
the thread is here viewtopic.php?f=66&t=31444&p=115065#p115065

i have commented 3 times since august 16th and still nothing from dvblink

Hi,

yesterday I recieved this message from via KODI Forum:

**************************************************************************************************
The issue has been fixed both for Jarvis and Krypton.

It would be nice if someone from Kodi team could merge the pull requests:
https://github.com/kodi-pvr/pvr.dvblink/pulls

**************************************************************************************************

I will test this and give a Feedback.

It has to be merged first by someone from Kodi team. They are not that fast recently...

is there a way to find out when its been merged

other than installing every single nightly as they come out and checking the dvblink pvr version?

With the new DVBLink PVR Addon V 3.3.5 (nightly build after 2016-09-22) is works correctly.

Thanks to DVBLogic and KODI Team :D
