    I was pretty stoked to see Max2Play had Kodi built into it. I am personally using Kodi to watch live T.V.. I have Ubuntu Kodi Virtual Machine with MythTV backup which connects to 3 SiliconDust HDHomeRun Primes to tune into cable t.v.

    When installing the Kodi image directly onto a Raspberry Pi 3 (with the mpeg-2 license installed and decoder enabled) the MythTV PVR client works great. It’s able to stream the mpeg-2 video fine via/from the MythTV backend server.

    When I use MythTV PVR client on the Max2Play Kodi, it doesn’t stream well. It’s either really choppy, i.e. video stalls for seconds at a time while you hear audio fine, or the video just doesn’t stream at all, but you hear the audio.

    I haven’t spent much time troubleshooting this, just thought i’d leave a note to indicate there seems to be an issue, specific to this Kodi install. I will probably end up using 2 separate Raspberry Pi 3’s to dedicate audio/video separately, but if anyone has any ideas on whether this can work, let me know.

    Hi coworker23,
    Thanks for sharing this issue. Which version of Kodi is currently running on your Max2Play device?

    This is on the default version. When you update to 2:16.1-3~jessie, the most recent version, and attempt to install the mythtv pvr client, I receive an error stating something like “The dependency on xbmc.gui 5.8.0 could not be satisfied.”

    I see some suggestions on-line to update kodi repo, and there seems to be a local .zip I can update, but when attempting to do that it states The dependency on xbmc.gui 5.9.0 could not be satisfied.

    When I install Kodi alone, I use the latest OpenElec.

    Hi coworker,
    You might also try updating to our newest version with the Update Kodi button (17.0-1).

    Ok great, I will give that a try tonight. I ended up buying 8 Odroid’s to utilize as video, but will give this a shot.

    The updated version of Kodi refers to the Raspberry Pi OS of Max2Play.
