There is nothing special to be done. Activate TVMosaic/DVBLink PVR addon in Kodi and change a port to be 9270 instead of 8100.

Hi there, I managed using TVmosaic as backend for Kodi as described in the posts above (changing port no. was a good hint... ;) )
Live TV plays fine, I have severe problems with old and new recordings. Some will play, some won't. Even recordings I recorded on the same day, same channel one after another i.e. the first one plays fine, the second one gets stuck. When starting to play, the video freezes, sound is continuing. When trying to fast forward Kodi crashes. I tried Kodi Version 17.6 on OS X 10.13.4, MrMc latest version on Apple TV 4K and Libreelec newest Version. Same on all installations. Is there any log/debug I can collect to get support on that issue? TVMosaic Server runs on my Qnap NAS 469L, all these recordings are fine when using TVMosaic App on OSX / IOS, just in combination with Kodi these issues appear. Regards Stefan

3.5 as it was the latest that can be installed on apple tv - theres an version 3.6 announced on their homepage but Its not showing up in the tvOS store yet (at least for me...) - all this would be unnecessary anyway if the tvmosaic client for apple tv would have been finally released.... ;)

TVMosaic PVR in MrMC is only present from MrMC tvOS release 3.6.1 and upwards.
So the version you tested didn't contain a PVR especially made for TVMosaic.

In MrMC Testflight, Release Candidate 3 version of 3.6.1 is just released, which I tested, so you can expect the Apple TV Appstore release of MrMC 3.6.1 hopefully within the coming days or week.

Ah, how should one know.... : (( I just upgraded manually to 3.6.0 official release with the issue that pvr client does not connect at all... so I assume I'll have to wait until 3.6.1xyz :mrgreen: has been released or tvmosaic is supported natively on my apple tv. SEUFZ!! Thanks for your support.....

You can also apply for Testflight testing of MrMC, than when they have added you to the MrMC Testflight, you can install the 3.6.1 Testflight releases from the Apple TV Testflight app directly. More info into how to take part of MrMC Testflight, you can find yourself in the latest Testflight topic on MrMC forum.

Thanks for these hints - with newest mrmc testflight version theres a dedicated tv-mosaic pvr client - works fine for me up to now..
