Installed on both of my boxes running the latest version of CoreELEC, and all went well..........

Thanks.
Clarkss12 - can you check and see if you can rewind/ff recordings (not live/timeshifting) with the last version that I uploaded. I can't on a couple of boxes here but can if I revert back one version. Just want to verify and make sure it is something with the version that I compiled and not unique to my boxes. Thanks!
Tested old recordings and just recorded shows, they all FF/RW perfectly.

@timecutter, I installed your latest compile for coreelec on one of my box's and also can not FF/RW when playing a recording.

I would say try to compile again just to be sure something did not go wrong but just in case I used an S912 2G/Gbit device with the latest coreelec release.

@Timecutter, I tested your port again on my Amlogic S912 box that is running a clean install. When playing a recording, I have NO control at all, much less FF/RW. I have to reboot the box, to get out of the play back. This is running CoreELEC 8.95.7 with Kodi version compiled on Jan. 3, 2019.

I again, tested your port on my Amlogic S905X box (Mecool KM8). When I try to play the first one or two recording, I have NO FF/RW, but after that, all the recordings have FF/RW. However, there is no RW icon at the bottom of the info bar.
I am running the same CoreELEC version 8.95.7 with Kodi version compiled Jan. 3, 2019.

Having Trouble installing on my Fire TV's. In the past I just installed on my NAS and downloaded through Es file explorer. Now es file explorer just opens the file. Am I doing something wrong?
Edit i see that is a zipp not apk? Don't we need an apk?
Hi! Kodi 18 now allows you to install .zip files on Android (including FireTV). All you need to do is install the official Kodi 18 Leia APK, download the addon-zip (or push with ADB, or whatever works), and install it via the Addon Browser.

It's actually a great improvement and really simplifies things for us. No more custom APKs required!

So, however you were getting the APK pushed to the FireTV before, follow the same process, just use the real Kodi APK. You can get the .APK from kodi.tv, or if you prefer just follow this here link: http://mirrors.kodi.tv/releases/android/arm/. If you navigate backwards into 'nightlies' you can get the most recent APK(s) they have produced. I recommend RC4 from the 'releases' area for stability.

Let me know if I can help you guys here. FF/RW for recordings on the most recent Leia code I put out did change. Make sure that you have the most recent src/pvr.cpp file, the "GetStreamTimes" function is going to be where the bulk of the change was, but there were other changes to support that.

Here is the specific commit: https://github.com/djp952/pvr.hdhomerun ... 8ffcdfb42f

The change was technically for recordings in progress, but does affect normal recordings as well since there is no real differentiation, they are both kicked off from the same callback. It uses the start time reported by the DVR engine as the "start time", and the lesser of the wall clock or the end time reported by the DVR engine as the "end time". If these aren't set up Kodi 18 won't let you seek at all. edit: Which reminds me - make sure your system clock is accurate :)

Also maybe check to be sure CoreELEC didn't patch Kodi in a way that alters how GetStreamTimes() is interpreted. If they did it shouldn't be too hard to compensate. Again, let me know if/how I can help out!

Gotcha, I went ahead and pulled a fresh copy of your latest code only changing 2 files to get it installed, addon.tt.xml and pvr.hdhomerundvr\depends\xbmc\xbmc\addons\kodi-addon-dev-kit\include\kodi\versions.h. No go on the rewind and fast forward on existing recordings.

Revert back to compiled file before the getStreamTimes change and rewind/ff work again. Here is a zip for anyone that may have grabbed the last copy that I shared. This should get your rewind/ff working again.

I'll look into it more on Saturday. Jury Duty tomorrow.

HUGE THANKS for all that you do.

No. I doesn't work on Jarvis. I was going to return my Black Friday Amazon Fire HD 8 2018 tablet, but I'll have to keep it since your PVR runs perfectly on it using Krypton. Please advise if the N7 issues are ever solved. Thanks
Does it go wonky immediately or only if you try to play/stream videos? Just wondering. Based on the image it looks like Kodi is a total loss on that device.
Immediately.
What about Leia? RC5 is now available, but you don't have a Leia apk available for download.

I must have missed this post weeks ago, but i noticed it today. I downloaded the latest Krypton arm app (1.3.9?), installed it, and implemented your suggestions. For the first time, my cherished Nexus 7 2013 LTE deb tablet actually played live TV in place of the dozens of spinning progress circles. That's a big improvement, and my thinks to you. However, it's not perfect, because I'm experiencing constant buffering (one spinning progress circle). I've tried it on my various networks with no difference.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again

There is no APK for Leia anymore, it's not necessary. Kodi on Android now allows you to install binary add-ons as you would any other, no special permissions or root access required.

There are all-new installation instructions on the wiki, here is the link to the Leia page. Android is now listed alongside Windows and Linux, just get the .zip file and install it! https://github.com/djp952/pvr.hdhomerun ... -Kodi-Leia

I already have the apk installed. Will the zip installation over write it? Will I then have to set up your app from scratch?

I went ahead and tried to install the zip following the instructions, but I received a dependency error relating to a global gui when I selected the zip file Also, my install attempt was "dirty" on top of Krypton 1.3.9 which I installed using the apk.

Sorry. I didn't see the post saying the Leia apk has to be installed first. I did that and the zip installed perfectly.

I just installed Leia via the zip file and turned hardware acceleration off per your suggestion but it didn't work for Leia. I got the tiling again with the multitude of spinning progress circles. It did work with with Krypton. Any thoughts?
Thanks
