Kodi 21 "Omega" change - do you want me to complain?

Post by djp952 »

Hello everyone ...

The only problem I noted with my (now legacy, but "not quite dead yet?") Kodi addon with Kodi 21 "Omega" is that the Omega EPG shows channel groups with no members (for us these are things like "Favorite Channels" or "HEVC Channels" that likely don't have any channels?), but while I find it personally annoying, I cannot currently justify taking it up with Team Kodi since it doesn't seem to break anything?

If anyone feels this is a battle that needs fighting let me know; otherwise I'm pretty much "good" with Omega?

Do the groups work correctly if you manually set them up in Kodi's group manager?

Edit: Nevermind. I just installed Omega (Flatpak) on my Ubuntu HTPC and the channel groups are working fine for me.

When watching recordings in Kodi 21 on my Fire Cube (newest generation), the audio/video gets out of sync when skipping around in the video. These are MPEG2 ATSC 1 recordings with Dolby Digital. Anyone else use one of these devices or know what might be going on?

Also, is there a way to view channel logos in the Guide next to the channel names? Thanks.

If anyone is interested, there were audio changes in 21 for Fire Cube: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=376161

Still curious about the channel logos in the Guide.

I am getting delays when seeking in the recordings on the Fire Cube. In Kodi I only have the skip +30s,-10s enabled and have disabled the "skip delay". Sometimes it unexpectedly skips back to the beginning (0:00). Any setting that might affect this?
