    Hello,





    I have just installed Kodi 17 beta 5 with latest Mediaportal addon.
    If I select a channel in kodi to switch to I will only see the blue "working ring" and nothing will happen.
    Then I have to kill kodi. This happens only happens sometimes.
    If its working on the first channel selection it will work everytime during this kodi session.
    So the important part is the first channel selection for each kodi session.

    for me it seems that the Plugin has a problem accessing the timeshift-share over smb.

    In generel the plugin is accessing the share with the host-name (I could see this in logfile I will post later) and not with the IP-Adress (even I configured the plugin with the IP-adress). Maybe this can be the problem?
    I have already added a DNS entry in /etc/hosts on the client for my TVServer to make sure that there is no dns issue. But the problem still exists.
    This problem only occurs on my linux machine. I have a MAC and a Windows machine running with "Kodi 17 Beta 5" and both clients connecting without problems to the TV-Server.
    So it´s a linux specific problem.

    If found out if activate the option "RTSP" in the plugin options the connection is working. But then the system hangs up when pausing the livetv (timeshift).
    Maybe the the same problem (then the client needs to access the timeshift share) occurs.

    Here is the log output I get.
    The last entry is:

    16:26:02 T:139924876031744 INFO: AddOnLog: MediaPortal PVR Client: FileReader::OpenFile() smb://steffen:password@TVSERVER/timeshift/live3-0.ts.tsbuffer.

    then the blue ring is running and running and nothing happens. No error message.

    Hi steo

    Have you posted on the KODI forum as well?
    I think you're more likely to get help with the plugin over in their forum...

    The only suggestion I could offer would be to try using Wireshark to monitor the network traffic, and see if that gives any insight into what's going on.
