I tried this on Krypton and Leia tonight (Android and Windows, respectively, and Leia was a build from yesterday). I wasn't able to duplicate this on either platform with the channel(s) I chose to record and then play while in progress yet. Tried them simultaneously, too. I have a thought, though. Leia is different than Krypton in regard to seek -- it limits you from seeking beyond the start or known end of the stream. This was the main delay in getting you guys updated Leia builds in fact. In Krypton you can seek your brains out and it would just go to the start or the end of the stream if you went too far.ssyspro wrote: ↑Fri Aug 24, 2018 5:34 pm djp952, A few versions back I could seek on a recording in progress was not perfect for example 1hr recording and I start playing 23 min. into it I could seek (fast forward through commercials) up to the time I started to play it. With recent versions, I can not seek on a recording in progress at all so if I start playing the 1hr recording at 50min into it I can not fast forward and need to stop playback after recording is finished and restart to use the seek function.
I am using Leia on all my boxes so don't know if other Kodi versions are doing this also but could you look into it and see if it is something that can be fixed?
What I do right now is actually based on the Jarvis/Krypton time shifting UI support - I keep track of the "PTS" value of an arbitrary elementary stream, the first one I find with PTS, and use that to try and fudge the data Kodi wants based on when you pressed play, the last seen PTS and the current time. There is a built-in trigger to kill all of that off and stop reporting it if any PTS value(s) go wonky - a reduction in the number, for example. Once the trigger fires, none of the data Kodi Leia wants for it's new seek is available anymore and won't be for the life of the stream. I have no way to recover it that I've thought of yet, so disabling it is the safest thing for now.
My guess based on the description and not being able to duplicate the problem is that either Kodi is blocking you from seeking OR the PVR stopped reporting the position data due to a concern (or bug).
If you still have the recording, I'd be interested to know if you can seek around it without problems on Leia after it has been fully recorded. I'm betting yes since it is now a true recorded stream with a known length so the 'realtime' stuff no longer applies.
I'll play around some more and see if I can duplicate the problem.
