Re: XMLTV guide data

First, thank you for adding <series-id> for Movies :) I've run into a problem with the <channel> elements ... There is a duplicate id attribute in the data retrieved for my authorization codes. I see "US86442.hdhomerun.com" twice, which will ultimately associate all listings for the second channel b...

Re: XMLTV guide data

Added series-id tag (non-standard) and star-rating tag (standard). Nick Thank you Nick! It looks like Movies (MV) aren't being assigned a <series-id> tag, is that expected? It appears on the surface this can be generated by simply removing the "." from the dd_progid value for these items, should I ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I didn't see THAT much difference here but I'm glad - bonus! That has to be the data compression at work, I wish I knew that was an option earlier! Now that I think about it I was comparing the load time of the new method with only 3 days of data to the old method with 14 days. I'll get you back to...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

You should see little to no difference other than maybe EPG loads are a smidge faster. A smidge ? I just got the update on my RPi2 and the EPG loads in about two seconds now. It was taking minutes to load before. Thanks for the awesome PVR addon. It just keeps getting better! I didn't see THAT much...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I was expecting to take December "off" since things were slow and generally stable, but ... mitigating circumstances :) Version 2.4.2 (2019.12.05) Add dependency on zlib library v1.2.11 Add "Use Original Air Date timestamp for Recorded TV programs" setting Enable DEFLATE and GZIP encoding support fo...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I've been playing around with Matrix and Comskip the past couple of days. I like how it puts red marks over the commercial breaks on the seek-bar when using EDL files. EDL seems to be hit or miss for me. They work for some recordings but not all of them. It seems to help on some of them if I add "a...

Re: XMLTV guide data

@garyan2 , do you happen to know if there is a reference point available for what I assume are the Gracenote genres coming in via the Category tags? Just scanning my own data I have 97 unique top-level categories, which is quite a lot to deal with, and I'm sure it's a small subset of what's possibl...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Update on the new EPG stuff; I got it hooked up end-to-end and it's looking great! It's FAST compared to the current method. It's fun to watch too since the data doesn't come in by channel order, so if you have the EPG up you can see Kodi fill it in like a puzzle :) The new data set is delivered as ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Thanks guys! Every little bit helps! I'm pretty much done with the first part of using the new format (parsing it all out), I may be able to have a prototype/alpha type build for people to test by this weekend. I wasn't aware SD had made mention of the XMLTV payload public, but you can also watch th...

Re: XMLTV guide data

I've had an initial run through this and am in the process of getting it hooked up to replace the JSON request, but I do have a few issues: 1. The HDHomeRun series ID for a program isn't exposed other than as part of the programme/icon element. Is this going to be 100% reliable? It seems hokey to ex...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I just checked my clients and lowered the number of days to download. I already had them set to either 1440 or 2880 for the update interval. Why would anyone need the guide data to be updated multiple times per day? Kodi is a bit aggressive with trying to keep the EPG up to date. I think this mostl...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Hi everyone, I have an important favor to ask: >> Please turn DOWN the Kodi setting "PVR & Live TV / Guide / Future days to display" to the lowest number of days you can realistically live with (I personally use 5 days) >> Please turn UP the Kodi setting "PVR & Live TV / Guide / Update interval" to ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Out of desperation, I started making changes mentioned on the Libreelec site in hopes of improving the situation. In fact nothing they suggested worked. I was staring at the player settings and noticed "sync playback to display". I am sure that it has always been there, I just have never needed to ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

Hi Johnny, signcarver was trying to help with gamaru's issue. I don't have a Pi 4 to test with, but I think it doesn't have hardware acceleration for MPEG anymore, so LibreELEC is doing everything via the CPU. You may be able to play with the Audio and Video settings a bit, but your best bet is prob...
