Hello! I apologize in advance if this isn’t the proper forum to post my inquiry, but I have a question regarding the CoreELEC Kodi PVR API v5.10.4 modifications/patches.
I develop a third-party Kodi PVR addon for the HDHomeRun, and some of my users have had difficulty using it with CoreELEC due to the bump in the PVR API version. When they started reporting problems I went looking for this API change to support it, but learned that it’s a CoreELEC exclusive changeset.
My concern is that I am unable to support CoreELEC at this time since the formal Kodi PVR API is still at version 5.10.3. If Kodi is to bump their API to 5.10.4, chances are good it won’t be the same set of changes and there will be a version conflict in the future, leaving me in a bit of a pickle.
I would love to be able to support all my users, and they seem to really like CoreELEC. Is there any chance that CoreELEC could use a different mechanism to detect/access the enhanced PVR functionality for addons that support it without changing the formal Kodi API? I can think of a couple different tricks you might be able to use, but I’m mainly a Windows person so I’m not going to pretend to know something you don’t
Thanks for your time, and Happy Holidays! Looks like a great product you have here!
