Amazon Fire TV

Post by FireUser » Sun May 07, 2017 5:28 am

Hi.

I have been using Argus TV with the Kodi PVR client running on a Raspberry PI for the past 18 months. It has worked, and continues to work wonderfully.

I'm now trying to get it to work on an Amazon Fire TV. I have done the following:
- Install Kodi on the Amazon Fire.
- Enable and configure the Argus TV client.

I can see the EPG but when I pick a channel to play it acts like its playing but there is no picture or sound, and no error. The channel will show with the 'triangle' indicating its playing, but nothing.

Any ideas?

The ARGUS TV plugin works fine on Kodi 17.1, but you need to make sure to do two things:

1. Enter a Windows username/password in the plugin configuration (replacing the Guess account that is there by default).

2. Add a "Videos" source in Kodi for the root of your Recordings folder, with the same path as ARGUS TV uses, once again setting up the username and password to the UNC path to make sure it can be reached without issues.
