Testing and Feedback for Kodi Skill


@pcwii For PVR testing, the easiest thing todo is to find/grab some live streams on the internet (any would do) and use and configure the “IPTV Simple Client”


I use VDR with kodi-pvr-vdr-vnsi. Of course, the music functionality would not be bad either. because you would have to agree with the mycroft_core guys somehow because of the keywords. kodi is very powerful


Thanks for this! It works nicely with my kodi 18 beta.

I had to disable skill mycroft-playback-control.mycroftai because your skill doesn’t play well with it.
(it eats the ‘play’ commands).
This is probably related to the new CommonPlay mechanism, but that might require some work.

I’d like to use this for tvshows/series as well:
'play the next unseen episode of ’
with dialog for ‘resume/start over’.

For PVR/livetv I use tvheadend.

I think you have to configure github to allow us to open issues, because right now we can’t.

How do you/does Mycroft plan on handling multiple instances for Kodi? Manual config edit per mycroft-instance?

Thanks again, keep up the good work.


Thanks for testing this. I have had very little development time over the past couple weeks. I do have a few kaizens in my todo list and this includes integrating with the CommonPlay mechanism that I have not fully digested yet. I will look into opening the issues deck on github.
