Hi

I have a small problem in the timeline view of the EPG. Whenever there are programs that span a longer period of time i can no longer move forward or backward in the EPG... Now i have to move to a different channel in the timeline to continue forward.

Is there some way of jumping with fixed intervals (30min, 1h,...) through the timeline?

Thanks

It happens when a channel doesn't have any other items for that channel, which means there's nowhere to jump.

Thanks, here is the log:

http://paste.ubuntu.com/6902859/

For example, the first channel has a show from 1pm till 8pm which lasts longer than currently visible, there are still shows after it (see last picture) but i can't get past the current show, i get stuck at 7.30pm.
So i have to move one row down, get past 7.30pm and then get back up again in order to see the upcomming shows. Very frustrating when multiple channels have long shows... Smile



Clean install of Frodo on XBMCBUNTU with the VU+ Enigma 2 addon

Best Regards

Frank

I have this problem also.

Using Margro's latest build with Mediaportal PVR backend - https://www.scintilla.utwente.nl/~marcel...tml#gotham

As per OP there are shows after the long entries but it gets stuck, can be frustrating. Resetting PVR db doesn't solve it.

This has been present forever. Unfortunately I don't know if it needs to be fixed in XBMC code or the skin.

Thanks, it would be great if someone could confirm that it works.

Could be tested with pvr demo addon and this PVRDemoAddonSettings.xml https://gist.github.com/xhaggi/7591820
