As long as the weather is good and the signal is tip-top, all is fine. If NextPVR has issues with the signal, the whole interface becomes non-responsive.
When I mentioned this on their forum, it sounds like it is working as intended:
If I were to use the tuner built into my television and a signal sucked, I push the channel change button and go to the next one.
I have noticed in NextPVR that when I select a channel that has poor signal quality, the entire program seems to hang until either a timeout is exceeded or enough signal gets through to let the interface respond.
This seems to be a bigger issue when using the NextPVR plugin with Kodi, but it also happens when I use NextPVR directly. The program acts similar to a web browser trying to connect to a website.
Is there a fix for this? It could just be some setting that I have not enabled.
the decoder/render chain expects good data, and tends to hang up when it gets bad data. not much can be done about it.
I really do not like that.Kodi is doing it's stuff too. It just tries longer to buffer a bad signal expecting that things improve.
Does ARGUS act the same way?
How difficult is it to setup on a Windows 7 PC? Has anyone posted a basic "How To" tutorial?
