Add option to view information about recording


#1

When pressing a recording in PVR the recording starts playing immediately. Could it be added that first the info screen is shown and playback is done from that screen.

I hope my request is clear. I am not sure how to describe it better.


#2

Kodi API does not return a lot of things for a recording so there’s no a lot to display.


#3

See this screenshot. My PVR shows the same information about recordings as is available with LiveTV

Once you started playing it, before the API is limited and have a lot less fields.

Only relevant field would be the plot, but does that really require adding a level of complexity and clicks just to show that.


#5

Well sometimes i just want to browse my recordings with info while listening to music or watching TV/Movie/Show


#6

Maybe I’m not clear enough, the Kodi API when getting recording info does not return everything you get when playing them.

The only data I can get that have meaning is the plot / genre that’s all I could display.


#7

You were clear enough. For me the plot would be enough.
But it is no problem if you don’t want to implement this.


#8

I have no decided yet it’s not closed :wink:

I’ll maybe add 3 dots to allow seeing the plot will see, but not high priority.

Haha, thank you.
Thank you for this incredibly great app and your years of hard work.
I have build a similar iOS app for MediaPortal (MediaPortal iViewer) a few years ago so i know how much work it is. :wink::slightly_smiling_face:
