HDHomeRun PVR and multiple HDHomeRun devices

Post by MNacke » Mon Apr 10, 2017 9:12 am

I have 2 HDHomeRun Extends and when I pull up the Guide it will show the duplicate channels.
I believe there was a Hide Duplicate Channels, but I can not seem to find it.
I am running Kodi 17.1 and 17.0

The official Kodi HDHomeRun PVR Client reports the channels to Kodi multiple times, once per device lineup that it discovers. As far as I know there is currently no way to change that behavior. Last I read, the author of the PVR only has one HDHomeRun device so it wasn't something he/she was capable of testing. The way that PVR Client works they are technically different channels since it will use the device-specific channel URL for streaming; when you select one of the two channels you are also selecting which HDHomeRun device to use.

The best place to get more information would be the Kodi forums. Here is a link to the HDHomeRun PVR specific forum. If you search on "duplicate" within that forum, you'll get a lot of hits:
