NextPVR addon update?

Post by three6zerocool » 31 Jul 2019, 22:09

Hello. Recently been testing MrMC's NextPVR addon with NextPVR backend.
(Using AppleTV4k and NVidia Shield) (TestFlight builds and Android beta builds)

After chatting with NextPVR developers, they tell me that MrMC is using a version of the NextPVR addon that contains a bug that affects time shifting, and as a result causes Tuners to disappear from the backend.

Basically means no time shift can be used for live tv in MrMC if one wishes to avoid what they call 'the time shift bug'.

Kodi itself is currently using 3.3.15 on the client addon, (and does not exhibit this bug) but am unsure of how that relates to MrMC version number of the PVR addon of NextPVR.

Any possibility of upgrading the NextPVR addon for both AppleTV and Android please?
Thank you for your time and effort.

Bump:

Hi, no comments on my enquiry?

Only reason I asked, is that the description of pvr addon, kinda implies the ability to pause live TV, something that is currently broken using this particular pvr addon in Mrmc for NextPVR blackened.

Is kinda depressing when my little Raspberry Pi 3 running Libreelec can utilise timeshift, but my AppleTV4k running my favourite software 'MrMC' can not currently. (live TV only) using NextPVR 4.x backend.

Have posted in a couple of forums including Testflight, but this is the most appropriate area for my question.

Updating the binary pvr extensions is on the list. It's rather complicated as we have to also update core to handle the changes to support them.
