Issues with migration from dvblink to kodi v18

Post by tehax » Sat Mar 24, 2018 4:40 pm

I notice some issues with migration from dvblink to tvmosaic. I followed the migration instruction for installation from DVBLink to TVMosaic. I added the channel logos and tvadviser epg to new scaned tvmosaic channels. Kodi import the epg correct but not the channel logos (in my case picons png files). My planed recording schedules are shown in kodi timer rules but without timer entries :| The same within tvmosaic. Scheduled recordings only without timer entry.

Channel logo's in Kodi is trial and error. It has taken me several cycles or "clear PVR data"/restart Kodi to get them all in. They will come eventually.

As for schedules, DVBLink schedules will not be picked up by TVMosaic. At least not all types of schedules. This is because channel identifiers have changed. So you might need to re-add schedules again.

But the import from dvblink works always perfect with kodi 17 or 18 nightlies all the time. Please re-check.

PS: Are you working to implement kodi pvr api change to 5.8.0 https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/13228

I believe we have seen the same behavior also with dvblink. But we will re-check.

yes, pvr changes are on our todo list.

You are welcome. Please report your experiences - if it works properly. There were a lot of changes both on Kodi and addon side.

First tests with TV Mosaic and Kodi 18/LE9 (API 5.8.0) are very promising!
Regarding the logo issue within Kodi, try to delete the TVxx.db and the Epgxx.db in userdata/database folder.
After doing this and restarting my system, no logo issue for me.
