It could be, but generally speaking a DHCP server will hand out the same address to the same system, especially if it's not shut down.johnny_swindle wrote: ↑Wed Jun 21, 2017 4:30 pmI have started encountering an interesting issue.....
Kodi 17.3 and Titian skin version 3.7.56
I can use the PVR client without issue and I use it right before bed. When I come back to use it early in the morning, I notice that all of my recordings are not present and the client won't work. This happens with all the PCs.
A simple restart of Kodi solves the issue.
Anyone else have this issue? Is the lease expiration (router) causing problems? I can set up a task via task scheduler to kill kodi and restart it at midnight if needed. But before I venture down this path, I though I would ask.
When you leave the systems at night, are they set to sleep? When Kodi detects a wait from sleep, it will call into the PVR and I do kick off a big rediscovery of all the data at that time. If it can't find something (or if there is a bug!) it's very possible that it may report a whole lot of nothing back to Kodi that would clear things out and make them break.
The best thing to do is to get the Kodi log file, it will probably have the information we need to figure this out. I'll PM you my e-mail address -- if you want to send me a log file I'll be happy to have a look!
One thing you can try to see if I'm in the right ballpark would be to initiate a clear database operation on the PVR client after it's gone bye-bye. This will delete everything from the client's database and reload it, triggering updates in Kodi along the way. To get to this option, go into the PVR & Live TV Settings. Under Client Specific / Client specific settings, hit the "Reset discovery database" option. It will take a few minutes to purge and reload everything. If the problem is in the PVR client database/code, this may clear it up AND it's a big hint for me if it does
