Re: Transition from HDHomerun to Channels and keep old recordings?

Your existing recordings are stored as unencrypted .mpg files in your DVR folder. You can move or copy them to wherever you want or leave them where they are if you've got the space and you're confident the new DVR service won't overwrite or corrupt that DVR folder. You can play those files with alm...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I think this will also fix jrpatx 's issue, since the function that is failing for him isn't used. It was a mistake on my part to use that against RECORD, while it seems to work for most everyone the HTTP server RECORD exposes doesn't really support what that function is trying to do. Yep, that did...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Hi djp952, thanks for the quick reply! First off let me make sure this issue is at the bottom of your priority list. It's more of a convenience issue for me, allowing me to skim through some recorded programs while multi-tasking on the Ubuntu machine. If I'm watching something I really want to pay a...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Anyone know of any compatibility issues between the latest version of the PVR add-on (v 3.2.2) and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS? I had been running the Krypton-compatible version of the add-on with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS for some time with no issues. When I upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, which includes Kodi Leia 18.6 ...

Re: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Killed Kodi Access to NAS

Tried both UDP broadcast and HTTP cloud-based discovery, no difference. I'll post the question in the unofficial Kodi add-on thread.

Thanks again for all your help!

Re: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Killed Kodi Access to NAS

Hello again, thanks for the quick reply! Version 20200225 of the DVR engine is running on my WDMyCloud NAS. Unofficial add-on is version -linux-x86_64-leia-3.2.2.7418. Yes, pointing a browser on the updated Ubuntu 20.04 machine (and any other machine as well) to my.hdhomerun.com discovers both of my...

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Killed Kodi Access to NAS

I have had both the official HDHR Kodi plugin as well as the unofficial HDHR PVR plugin working fine on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS for a long time. With the update to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, both stopped working. The unofficial PVR plugin reported that it was not compatible with Kodi Leia 18.6 (because the plugin h...

Re: BBC Wrong Episode Date Workaround

Right you are! Re-tried setting RECORD-ALL EPISODES tasks for the BBC news programs yesterday. Red dots proliferated as they should this time. Today the recording events fired off as they should and the recordings were made. Previously, I saw the perfect correlation between unique episode info and c...

Re: BBC Wrong Episode Date Workaround

Thanks for taking the time to give the detailed explanation. I guess different stations are different then. When I looked at the HDHR guide info for my local PBS, CBS, ABC, and NBC news programs they all have unique episode info. for each day. Some are shown as dates, others are SxxEyy format. This ...

Re: BBC Wrong Episode Date Workaround

I don't think so. PBS, CBS, NBC, and ABC all have unique (and correct) episode identifiers in the HDHR guide for each daily news broadcast and I have never had a problem with the HDHR DVR picking up those daily broadcasts. As I said, every episode of the BBC news programs have always been described ...

BBC Wrong Episode Date Workaround

The guide data for all BBC news shows (via PBS OTA) has always been defective (at least for the 3 years or so that I've been using HDHR DVR). They list the episode date for each new daily news broadcast as the same date many years ago, presumably the first broadcast date for that show. The workaroun...

Re: Closed caption size?

Have you played around with the font size options at the Android OS level? I increased it for better legibility of guide descriptions and other info at greater distance from the TV, but an unwanted side-effect was the sort of massively over-sized subtitles that you are describing within the HDHR app...
