Totally agree, but at the moment my showstopper (no pun intended) is live TV channel changing with my MediaPortal TV Server. Whenever I change channels, the live TV buffer reverts to the beginning of the buffer and starts showing whatever I was watching initially, on whatever channel that happened to be. Eventually, the channel change happens once the live TV buffer gets back to the point where I initiated the channel change.
Automatic commercial skipping seems to be broken on some platforms also – in OSMC it works again as of the version based on 18.5, but it’s not working on my primary Windows 7 based HTPC. Unfortunately, when it comes to live TV, there are very few developers involved with any given backend server and seemingly little testing done.
Anyway, 17.6 worked really well for me, and mySQL is an important part of my program. So, I’m hoping somebody knows which version of OSMC from the above website is based on 17.6, to avoid having to figure it out by trial-and-error.
