I wanted to give the XBMV Alpha 6 release a go but ran into an issue with Life TV. I upgraded from a working XBMC 12.2.

I get the notorious message: "Timeout while waiting for buffer file"

Now I know the Timeshift share is ok also the configured credentials. Also when donwgrading to 12.2 it works again. I tried the Aplha 5 & 6 release
Doe anybody knows were to look?.

The XBMC PVR API does not accept network shares in Windows format (\\servername) anymore.
The ArgusTV addon sources need to be updated to translate the network shares in XBMC format: smb://servername.
The MediaPortal PVR addon had the same problem.

No, you're not mad. It is just a side effect of Wiso's change to support longer paths than 255 characters.
Frodo accidentally supported the Windows share format using the PVR API. This was undocumented and not intended to work.

That fix should really be included in the Nightlies / Snapshots build.. just updated from Frodo a few minutes ago as I needed it for a Plugin-Livestream functionality.. clearly it's not included.. yet. Wink

Thanks for the fix btw.! ;-)
