Kodi app 30s forward 10s back navigation possible?

Post by averyfreeman »

Hey,

In regards to the official Kodi app, I was just wondering if the 30s forward 10s back navigation is possible, or if the navigation style is controlled by Kodi?

We should have this fixed in an upcoming update for the Kodi add-on, along with the ability to delete recordings.

The skip forward and back is working now, but I can't delete files from Kodi itself. When I try to delete in Kodi, the program will disappear from the listing but then come back after I change screens and come back to the listing. Also, I checked and the file is not being deleted either. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm running Windows 7 and Kodi 17 on that computer.

I was just using Kodi with the official HDHomeRun add-on and for the life of me I could not get it to do anything but just play.

No stop, no fast forward, no time shifting, nothing. Not with mouse, not with keyboard.

Looks like the Ubuntu package maintainer's version is 18.6, I installed that from the apt repository and installed the official HDHomeRun add-on inside Kodi following the guide from the SD wiki.

Any ideas what this is about? Am I doing it wrong? Seems too weird to be expected behavior.

At the moment the official Kodi add-on should be regarded as non functional. I've gone through and found a lot of issues somewhat recently, and at the moment we don't know when we can get someone to update it for us (current developer team is very busy at the moment). I wish I had better news on that front.

I'm not up to all that much at the moment. Code doesn't appear to be that difficult to navigate, but I'm not a python person. Are there issues open on the GitHub to look through?

Happy to have a look and submit PRs if you think I can help.

Oh, OK thanks :)

I figured it was just something I was doing wrong, but I guess I'm not crazy after all.

Hi NedS, I put a couple PRs out there today to hopefully help overcome the primary problems I ran into. The limitation of not being able to seek is inherent to using the tuner stream(s) directly instead of routing through RECORD when available. I can try to put something together for that, but no promises :) This was my first time working in Python - it wasn't pleasant LOL.

edit: Delete recording appears to work with the proposed changeset.
