I have sent a new Pull Request to Team XBMC:

https://github.com/opdenkamp/xbmc-pvr-addons/pull/269

This change introduces a thread within the addon that is active during the lifetime of the addon. The new thread monitors the ARGUS TV server service events. After analysing these events it may decide to trigger XBMC to update it's timers and/or recordings.

This means:
  • When you add a schedule using the ARGUS TV console or other client, is should soon thereafter appear on the XBMC Timers list
  • When ARGUS TV starts recording, the new recordings should soon thereafter appear on the XBMC Recordings list
  • When you remove recordings using the ARGUS TV console or other client, it should soon thereafter disappear form the XBMC Recordings list
Cheers,
Fred

@wileecoyote: I have made no changes to channel logo handling yet.

Is there a problem with the XBMC client pulling thumbnails across from the Argus back end? I'm using a test build of OpenELEC with Gotham and Argus 1.9.172 and it seems like the thumbnails are being generated locally on the client.

Is the plugin working with the latest Gotham nightly? I'm trying to get it working on a Nexus 7 [2012] using a recent nightly (http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/andro ... bi-v7a.apk), but no channel will play (SD or HD). The channel logos are also not loading in.

I've posted this question on http://forums.xbmc.org too and they have asked for log files, I was just wondering if there was a known compatibility issue.

Pull Request 269 has been merged into Main. So you should all see events working with newer builds (1.9.173++).

I have issued a new Pull Request 272 (https://github.com/opdenkamp/xbmc-pvr-addons/pull/272).

This change will greatly improve the detection of recording conflicts (or Timers as they are called within XBMC).

As far as I know there are no compatibility problems with the newest Gotham nightlies. What you are reporting sounds more like an authentication/authorisation problem. You should be able to resolve this by either editing the XBMC passwords.xml file for your shares, or by manually browsing to your share with the XBMC video player and have XBMC pop-up the security dialog. Once you can access and play content from the shares with the standard XBMC video player, you can also play using the addon since this just starts the XBMC player with the right share/file name.

just want to say WOW :D

Tested Gotham release in Ubuntu and Openelc (from today) with fantastic zapping speed (faster than MP) and now also support for skipping in timeline aka Mediaportal!

Thanks to all involved and Red_F!

This means that you have to setup userid/password for all the shares within XBMC using the 'normal' XBMC mechanisms. Don't ask me what those are but there is a cache of userid/password combinations within XBMC for shares it knows about, and that is what gets used now. Try opening your recording with the standard XBMC video player.

The userid and password configuration fields of the addon will be removed during one of the upcoming updates since they are no longer used.

Thanks Red_F - this solved my buffering issues !!!!
