I've posted an updated Windows build of the NextPVR addon here: http://forums.gbpvr.com/attachment.php?a...1384704483
Changes:
Quote:- added dialog to set recurring recordings, giving the same recurring options as NextPVR.
- added support for retrieving and storing last playback position
- now requires NextPVR 3.1.1 or higher
- fixed a bug that could cause an EPG event with no description to have a copy of last show's description, or cause a crash if the user was unlucky.
- includes bug fix for problem where live tv streams would sometimes not detect the connection was gone, so would continue recording
- more flexible approach to genre
- added support for EDL (though XBMC PVR framework doesn't seem to be calling this in my Gotham build)

I've posted a further updated Win32 build here: http://forums.gbpvr.com/showthread.php?5...post467481

This build expands on the available options when setting up recurring recordings. You can set recurrence type, padding, number of recordings to keep, and recording directory.

I really like the series link options you have added, & I note with interest your Sky/Freesat UK EPG work. At this stage the only thing that is keeping me with Mediaportal is the ability to automatically keep up with Sky's constant channel changes. As DJBlu has published his source code I was wondering if you had given any thoughts to adding similar functionality?

I'm not in the UK myself, so cant test anything specific to Sky / Freesat UK.

I'd be happy to assist on the test front if you have the time/interest on working on thisSmile

Without signals here, it's unlikely I'd develop anything Sky/Freesat specific, because its impossible to develop anything substantial if you cant tell it yourself while you're doing development. That said, there is nothing to stop someone in Europe from creating their own utility to automatically update the NextPVR channel lineups when their are changes in the Sky/Freesat services.

I have downloaded the latest zip file. Is it installed in XBMC as a traditional add on or do I extract the contents on top of the current plugin? I am using Gotham Beta 3 and when I attempt to add as a plugin from a zip file, it tells me that the dependencies are not met.

Thanks....

The updated addon is included in Gotham these days, so you shouldn't need this old zip file.
