Timeline view issue with kodi17.1

When viewing the EPG guide (timeline) its seems that there is a mismatch between the channel name/number & the guide entries. Everything is moved down one line. (see attached image).

When viewing the channel view or when using the dvblink web client all appears OK.

Has anyone else seen this? Seems to have only happened since I updated to 17.1 from 17.0.

Please try clearing the Kodi PVR data from settings.
If it does not help, can you please forward dvblink ports so that we can investigate the issue using local kodi installation under debugger?

I've tried that plus a full hard reset of kodi.

I'll open a support ticket with details on how you can access my system.

Glad to see that someone else has reported the very same problem I am actually struggling with.

Server 6.0.0 build 14072 is running on Synology NAS. I have 18 channels configured. Kodi guide starts counting at no. 2 in the left column skipping the first channel. But the guide entries in the first line are the ones of the first channel!

The numbering continues until no. 18 showing the entries of no. 17. So I am unable to playback channel no. 18 from the guide.

Strangely in the channels view everything is correct as described by @brianjg.

I have first tried to clear all data in the PVR setting with no success. Then I reinstalled Kodi completely with the same result.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Just wanted to add that I'm suffering from the exact same problem.

I've also recently started having an issue with the guide view on Kodi 17.1. Certain channels don't show, and there are mismatches between channel names and data. Everything appears fine on the web client guide. Also if I use the channels page of kodi rather than the timeline it appears to work fine. I've also tried clearing guide data. Any updates?

Problem still persists. I would be happy to get a feedback, @Oberon?

The issue, that is bug in Kodi itself, was worked around in the addon mainline. I believe it was just too late for 17.1, but is available as part of nightly build.

Thanks, I've updated to the latest krypton nightly build and the issue seems to have been resolved. Available here for Windows http://mirrors.kodi.tv/nightlies/win32/Krypton/
Seems pretty stable build, worth the increase in wife acceptance factor over any potential instability in any case.
