Live TV suggestions

Post by timstephens24 » 04 Oct 2018, 23:30

A few suggestions for issues I've been having trying to switch to use MrMC for watching live tv.

1. [[Found the fix for this, default "Timeout when starting playback" was 10 seconds so I changed it to 1]] Speed up the time to load the channel. Right now (even with the option of 'LiveTV playback wait time' set to 400ms) it takes about 8+ seconds to load up the channel from my HDHomeRun or from an IPTV stream when I initially start playing. If I switch the channel it's almost immediate most of the time, and it should be like that always.
2. [[Found the fix, thanks @garyd123]] When I click on a channel, don't give me a pop-up asking me to Close, Switch, Record, or Find similar. I just watch to play it (or switch) 99.5% of the time.
3. Scrolling with the Apple TV remote should be a lot faster. It takes forever to get through 100+ channels.
4. Wrap from top to bottom on the guide.
5. Disable tapping up/down to change the channel. Live TV remote controls are still stuck in the old way, and it should require a click to switch the channels or jump forward/back.

I want to say there's an option to setup #2, but I'm not certain as I'm not in front of mrmc right now.

Certainly I want to echo #3 & #4. #4 would be less annoying though if #3 was able to be addressed.

The guide needs progressive scrolling as per the rest of Kodi eg movie lists. It is REALLY annoying trying to scroll through a large list of tv channels one at a time.

I've got a workaround for this but only if you use a Harmony remote (or anything I guess with SkipForward/SkipBackward). I used the Keymap Editor Extension that was added in 3.7.0 to globally map the navigation page up/page down to SkipBackward/SkipForward. Now when I hit the 'Channel Up' button on the remote it will jump up by a page, and same with Channel Down. An added bonus is that it works globally, like in the Movies and TV Shows sections, too.

Fwiw if you hold down on a firetv remote it scrolls quickly so I assume the same should be possible on Apple tv.

Whatever, it would be nice if it was fixed anyway.

What exactly?

What skin are you on? Scrolling through list of channels on opacity is not slow on appletv, is it Ariana?
