Re: Quadruplicate recordings

A DVR should err to record... as one can just delete the extra episodes where one does not always have the option to record again. My advice is to set a ChannelOnly rule for the series (from your other posts I know you use a platform that can). I would agree that the SHO2 channel should have not be...

Re: Quadruplicate recordings

The HDHomeRun record engine will always record an episode flagged as first-airing, even if a recording already exists with that the episode ID. I guess the only solution then is to fire Gracenote and get a EPG provider that can provide accurate data. Recording the same episodes four times is not ac...

Re: Quadruplicate recordings

Statistically, your record engine might request an update anywhere from 0 minutes to ~4 hours [was that not changed to ~2 hours at some point?], and in any case, should there ever be (as requested by some) a remote scheduling capability directly to the SD cloud, you will want (and probably expect) ...

Re: HDHomerun Viewer No Longer Working on my Android Box

...and the "unofficial" add-on Simple HDHR operates very well, but will only FF after the content has been recorded, so you cannot FF before that time if you wanted to watch without commercials before the program is over. Try djp952's unofficial Kodi PVR. It works great. https://forum.silicondust.c...

Re: Quadruplicate recordings

An EPG update wouldn't have any affect on the record schedule until the next sync 4 hours later.

Re: Quadruplicate recordings

The purpose of FirstAiring tags should not be compromised the way you ask as I can't count the times such have actually helped (it is the one feature that behaves better than wmc) and it is better to err on the side of recording than to miss it. I don't see how the FirstAiring tags would be comprom...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

For this one I am not actually sure what you are talking about; can you help me with exactly where you see this and how to get there in Kodi? My Recordings don't have categories like this that I am aware of? Is this the "genre" from the EPG data, and do you maybe have "Use backend genre string(s) ....

Quadruplicate recordings

Each episode of the Showtime series Shangri-LA is recording four times. All four are marked as a first airing.

I ssh'd in and tried the linux install. I followed the directions, create share, copy file, rename file etc.....Made myself super user, but when I start it, I get "Permission Denied Line 10". Any help out there? I got the permission denied error once during a Linux manual install. That was a long t...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I almost don't want to bring this up since it's a very minor thing, but can the "news" category in the recordings list be changed to "News"? It's the only thing in the recordings list that starts with a lower case letter. Edit: On second thought, if the case can be changed maybe it would be better t...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

I still use Krypton on my RPis. If you only get one armhf Krypton download let me know and I'll switch to Leia. I don't have any good reason for staying on Krypton other than my DialogSeekBar.xml modification doesn't seem to work on Leia. My Linux x86-64 PC alerted me there was a PVR client update a...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

sigh. I suppose it's good enough as it is, apologies that changing the default required action on your part, even if it was a minor thing. I think it's pretty awesome as it is. Considering how much work you put into building it I certainly won't complain about the thirty seconds I spent toggling a ...

Re: Unofficial Kodi HDHomeRun DVR PVR Client

That's pretty odd sounding to me. If I recall the status codes properly 503 is usually returned when the RECORD engine has been bounced and the port number has changed. This is a main reason I switched to UDP discovery by default it takes a real-time snapshot of the network and should be more accur...

HTTP used to be the default but I recently switched it over to use UDP broadcast by default by popular demand :)
I had to turn HTTP back on. Once in a while live TV would fail to start playing and it would throw a 503 error on UDP. I haven't had that problem since I switched it back.
