this is no new problem, in fact I have been ignoring it for many months:
When the VNSI-Connection to my VDR server is lost, it takes several minutes (eight minutes in this case) until it is running again (meaning: I can start a TV channel). In the meantime, I see “Channel symbols are searched” and “PVR-Manager is starting” flashing in the upper right corner.
Until now, I had vdr-plugin-vnsiserver version 1.3.1 on the server.
vdr vnsi client on kodi days it has version 2.6.23 which doesn’t match at all.
The newest version on githup of vdr-plugin-vnsiserver is 1.5.2. I installed that right now, but it doesn’t improve the long connection time.
I added my debug log (see first post), there you can see some vnsi version numbers
Just out of curiosity I went to Kodi->Settings->PVR&TV-> Menu/OSD and “clicked” on “Search for missing Channel symbols” (my translation from German UI). That itself takes several minutes. Is there a reason that it is so slow? Can I speed that up somehow?
