Hi,

I installed Rapier from XBMC repository yesterday .. congrats, your PVR support is very good, especially I like the OSD with detailed program information !

It would be nice, if the OSD information about what's running now and coming next could be a little more in contrast to the rest (bigger font, other color or something like that) ..

Hi,

I'm using Rapier now for a while and discovered, that something goes wrong with EPG timeline and OSD information about starting and ending times and the right information about the actual played program.


- Timeline bars are longer or shorter than the running time of the program even if the information itself about start and ending time - for example when setting a timer - is correct (so for example starting time is 20:15 and ending time is 21:15 the bar shows an ending time between 21:00 and 22:30) ..

- When switching through the EPG timeline I sometimes don't get an information overview about the choosen program but for the upcoming program

[REQUEST]
It would be nice to have a scrollbar for the OSD-channel-switching dialog ..

'since confluence shows the same behaviour this might be a generic pvr error, but after stoping a recording the home screen still shows the stopped recording task as running

[REQUEST]
there is no information in the liveTV section about running recordings. For example Confluence theme shows a red circle next to the channel that is recorded.

You can thank Lambda who maintains the pvr code. He will look into this.

I've changed the location of it in osd.

I've made progress icon to turn blue if channel is recording.

This is not available in pvr builds yet,
I will add this when it becomes available for sure.

All these are controlled by pvr builds, I have no power on themSmile

it is called TimeBarSmile
I haven't added this because it is not supported by pvr builds yet.
If you look Rapier's pseudotv timeline view which uses an identical layout with pvr timeline view,
you will see that I have added it there and you will also see how it will look when it is supported by pvr builds.

This is now supported in latest pvr builds and it has been added in Rapier.
