I was using Timecutter's build as I didn't know you had a CoreELEC version available.... I thought he was handling the CoreELEC "fork" of your PVR.

I tried reinstalling his version again but, same result, not compatible with this version error message.

Are you using timecutter's build or mine? CoreELEC agreed to handle their API change differently so that third party add-ons would be compatible again.

Sorry if I wasn't able to clarify this properly, as of CoreELEC 9.0.1 you should use my PVR addon .zip again instead of timecutter's (no offense to timecutter intended). For CoreELEC, I believe you want the "GNU Linux armhf" .zip: https://github.com/djp952/pvr.hdhomerun ... -Kodi-Leia

If "armhf" doesn't install, try "armel". I'm 99% sure CoreELEC was armhf, though. CoreELEC uses a 64-bit "aarch64" kernel with a 32-bit user mode, so it will definitely be "armhf" or "armel"

You're faster with the reply than I am installing your add-on. LoL

You are correct, the ARMHF works and now I have LiveTV back on the Bedroom TV. Thanks, because the wife was getting pissed. LoL

Awesome! I'm sorry for any annoyance here. Please tell your wife that it was "for the greater good" - lol. It won't work (20 years this May myself), but using altruism as an excuse comes as close as I've ever found to making marriage a zero-sum game :)

I am running 13.3 Krypton on my 2 Nexus 7 android tablets, which are running unofficial versions of android P, and I'm having 2 problems. On Kodi boot, the following message appears at the bottom of the splash screen, which I've never seen before: "Detected problem with app native libraries (please consult log detail)." Also, I'm getting so much buffering Kodi is unusable. I didn't have either problem with 13.2, as I recall.

I hope someone has fixes.

Thanks

Can you post / supply a Kodi log file for this? I am not aware of any breaking changes in Android P myself that would affect the PVR. At some point there will be, if Android ever fully removes support for native modules compiled with GCC, but if something like that were the case the PVR wouldn't load at all.

Since you are on Android Leia, you can also go into the Addons Browser and use the "Update" function for the PVR to revert back to 1.3.12 if you want to easily compare between versions. I keep at least one prior version available for you guys via this method to help with rolling back if needed.

Do yo think this addon will work on a raspberry pi zero/LibreELEC 9?
thanks

It should, looks like LibreELEC for the Pi zero is a 32-bit ARM build. Give the "linux-armel" Leia build a try. A quick search indicates that "armhf" would not be correct for the zero. LibreELEC is based on regular GNU Linux as opposed to the specialized Raspbian stuff, I don't foresee any specific issues other than maybe performance.

Let me know how it works out!!

I found that the raspberry pi works much better if you purchase the hardware codec license for about $2.50. Without it mine kept overheating and therefore slowing down.

I 100% agree with ddejager, you will get significantly better performance by unlocking the hardware decoder. It's worth the ~$2.50 gamble. I don't think you would benefit from the VC-1 decoder for anything PVR related, though.

I ordered the codec, waiting for the email.
I tried installing = zuki.pvr.hdhomerundvr-linux-armhf-leia-1.3.13.6982.zip
but it crashes libreELEC 9.0.1 and sends it into a crash reboot loop.

any ideas
