All,

I have made a fix for the XBMC code for this problem and issued a pull request to Team XBMC. See https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/4630.

Let's hope it gets merged with Gotham.

@hagayg: no ARGUS TV is not the only PVR server that supports this. I have noticed however that the 'static' lastplayedposition field on the recording info is not set by our addon. This is an optional field that is obsolete when an addon supports the GetLastPlayedPosition API. However, because of the bug in the XBMC code recordings will now always have a resume position of 0 when this field is not set. Other addons still set this field.

I will create an update for the addon that also sets the field and will issue a pull request for that as well. However, the GetLastPlayedPosition allows you to start watching a recording on eg. a MediaPortal client, stop watching, resume watching on a different machine with XBMC from exactly the position where you stopped viewing in MediaPortal. This allow you to stop/resume watching cross-clients (XBMC and non-XBMC) and is imo a far superior solution.

I hope the fix gets added to XBMC soon so that all PVR addons will work as intended when they support this API.

Cheers,
Fred

Thanks. :D

Hi,
this should work for linux, or is this a fix in xbmc?

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc-pvr-argustv

The nightly builds would be the place to get it:

http://mirrors.xbmc.org/nightlies/win32/

Although, according to GitHub Fred's fix was only merged on the 7th, and the last nightly was build on the 5th, so you'll have to wait until they do another nightly build :(.

@Red_F Nice one for fixing this. Looking forward to having resume working again.

Check the version of your addon. It must be 1.9.177 or newer, otherwise the fix is not in your addon.

it's 1.9.176...
so that means, the fix hasn't made it to the recent nightly build?
or do i have to update the plugin somehow after installing the nightly build?

It means that that particular nightly build was not made from the sources of 1.9.177. Note that the fix had been included to the master branch of the pvr repository, I don't know how and from where your build had been constructed.
