One other thing that's been on my mind, and I opened an Issue on GitHub to track it, is that at some point I should stop updating the Jarvis (Kodi 16.1) baseline. I see from the download counts that it's still very popular, so for anyone watching this thread and is using Jarvis I'd love you know your thoughts on this: https://github.com/djp952/pvr.hdhomerundvr/issues/26.

My best plan right now would be to retire Jarvis from anything but bug fixes when Leia is formally released. Just stop adding new options or enhancements to it? When Leia is finalized, I could bump the client to v1.3 or even v2.0 for Krypton and Leia, and leave Jarvis at 1.2.whatever. If a bug or breaking back-end change comes up it can definitely still be fixed, but it wouldn't follow the same cadence as the current baselines.

In my experience, Jarvis uses significantly less resources than Krypton, especially important on older Android devices, but are there other reasons that folks are not updating to Krypton 17.6? If Jarvis were to stop being updated does the PVR client work well enough as-is to keep you up and running for the forseeable future?

Hi,

Now that the alpha version of Kodi has been released for Xbox One, can I install the Zuki zip file for Windows so the addon appears in that install? Do you think it will work with the Xbox One version of Kodi?

Thanks.

Can't hurt to try :D Worst case is that it won't install. Is the new app based on Leia or Krypton? If Krypton, I think I'd need to make you an x64 .zip file. Otherwise, give the latest Leia build a shot, like I said it really can't hurt. I have no Xbox here so you're kinda the guinea pig on this one!

New build is based on Leia according to the system info in Kodi. I've tried the Kodi 17.x PVR addon and the 2 off Leia (x32 and x64). Kodi reports that they fail to install. Mind you, only NFS is available, there is no SMB file shares. Not sure if that would be a problem, I doubt it.

The 'perfect' HTPC is nearly upon us.

edit: Nevermind. Duh, this is a UWP app. I can install it myself on regular Windows 10 :) Looks like it just did, too. I'll get back to you.

edit2: no it won't work. I have some work to do here to rebuild and repackage for consumption in a universal app. It doesn't look like regular pvr.hdhomerun works yet either

I have recently started using this add on and I really like it. I saw the post that "Prepend season/episode number to episode name in EPG" had been added and would like to activate this feature. However, I do not know how to get to the General setting to activate it.

I would appreciate some help with this.

Go to Addons, My Addons, All, then click on HDHomerun DVR PVR Client. Click Configure and you should see in the General settings section.

It's easy to get lost in Kodi. I used the Confluence skin for many years so I had that one pretty much figured out. I finally made the switch to Estuary and now whenever I need to change something I have to hunt for a while before I find the settings page I'm looking for.

I recently started using the fork, but I have issues with channels defaulting to SD from favorites. Could this a be a issue with Kodi issue? I am using the Titan skin.

I apologize for not understanding this one, can you explain a bit more? Do you mean the Favorites are changing, or more like the EPG is defaulting to SD channels as opposed to Favorites? Either way it's probably out of the PVR's control, but we'd love to help if we can!

Update on Xbox One / UWP - I have everything compiling except for one rather key component: libcurl. I have to make modifications to libcurl's build process this time, and it's taking a while to hit on the magic settings. Very close, only appear stuck with the CryptoAPI calls, otherwise it's not complaining.

If it takes much more time, I'll grab a precompiled DLL version of libcurl and use that temporarily. But, supporting UWP in general hasn't been much of a hassle at all thus far. I'm at the same blocking point on Win32, x64 and ARM, which is really good news as it means solving it for one probably solves it for all three!

Stay tuned.

I got everything working; but there is a pretty serious roadblock with UWP. It's a lot like Android, and you can't load code from an external directory, which means you cannot install a binary addon. I tried zipping up one of the built-in ones (pvr.demo) and trying to install it, and ended up in the same place.

As of right now, UWP is a no-go. Paint.NET does allow this, so it may be a matter of putting things somewhere else, but that will be a Kodi thing. sigh.

Oh no....that's no good. Thanks for trying anyway.

What would it take to make your addon a std inclusion from Kodi during an install using the downloaded file from Kodi like other PVR addons?
