Thanks oberon. Still I want to mention, with DVBLink, the "GA experience" for Kodi v17 was very bad. I seriously started thinking about migrating to a different, better maintained Kodi-solution (TVHeadend). I'd prefer to see you using the beta & rc phases of Kodi for addon compatibility assurance.

Fantastic :-)

I really hope this solves the hang up problems after ~ 6 hours - Looking forward to checking it out.

Echoing VPN-User's feedback - I too had also begun to look at TVheadend - I really hope the DVBLogic team consider being a bit closer to the Kodi community in future for Beta testing etc.

I still have my Windows MCE machine "ticking over"...now I hope I can start counting the days to the switch off and becoming a "windows free house"

Thanks guys. Is it possible to update the dvblink pvr add on without moving to 17.1 /nightly?

Downloaded and installed the latest nightly http://mirrors.kodi.tv/nightlies/win32/ ... rypton.exe

I think this includes the fix, hard to tell because the version of the addon reported is still 3.3.13, but the changelog.txt has the fixes in it, which makes me think you need to update the version in addon.xml

Version 3.4.0
Fixed: Crash when switching channels with timeshift enabled ( #69 )
Fixed: Hangup after period of inactivity ( #64 )
Fixed: Incorrect dvblink server version displayed in addon proeprties ( #66 )
Fixed: Timer Rules incorrectly detected ( #68 )

Yep, confirmed. The version code has to be fixed.

Thank you for supporting this plugin.

I've tested the latest nightly. I previously was seeing a crash with timeshifting enabled. I'm no longer experiencing the crash with timeshifting, but I notice that the performance slows down when I show the OSD by moving the mouse in OSX or touching the screen in Android. In Android, the video sometimes pauses and doesn't resume for a while. In OSX, it is less noticeable, but I do see the video stutter sometimes.

You need a nightly build, not the rc1.

Hm. At least my issue persists even with v3.4.1 (latest nightly), very easy to reproduce on my machine, even with a Kodi from scratch (deleted profile): I simply need to suspend while Kodi is running, then wakeup and I'll immediately be greeted with error pop "The addon cannot load. An unknown error occured", see photo taken with my phone. Once I close and restart Kodi, it works again.

I'm sorry for the ignorant question but how can i get a nightly version of Kodi when I'm running libreelec? My wife is fed up with the freezeups after idle and I don't seem to be able to be able to access Kodi nightlies through libreelec updates.

Any help much appreciated! Alternatively, if there is a different mirror / repository where I can get theatrst dvblink client that would be ace.

Tested both new versions and noticed an issue with epg (only timeline view)!
With old version of DVBLink Addon everything is shown correctly on my timeline.
Since new version (4.1.0 with milhouse x86 testbuild), my timeline suddenly starts with line 2(ZDF) and line 1(ARD) is missing....
With other epg-views everythings ok.
