Is there anyone using Kodi to stream local Freeview on an Amazon Fire TV - and if so have you tried recording (what would be needed to do it)? Is it even possible? 

 

I haven't tried it yet but keen to if anyone knows if Kodi can record it.

If you've got NextPVR on a Windows machine on your network, then just enable the NextPVR addon in Kodi, and you'll get the TV guide, and be able to watch live tv and schedule recordings etc.

 

You can see the general steps for setting up NextPVR with the local freeview streams here:

Once you get Kodi installed on your Fire TV, it should just be a matter of enabling the NextPVR addon, and setting the IP address for your backend machine.

Your NextPVR backend machine would record to wherever it's set to record. ie, usually a local drive, or a NAS. (ie, it's not going to record on the Fire TV's storage)

freitasm: Can't I record locally?

 

Pretty sure you can only record if you have a device/tuner.

 

I set up the live streams and thought it would be good if you could record from the streams - but I drew a blank on finding anything that would let you.

 

Maybe someone can prove me wrong.

 

I think someone asked Matt Huisman on his forum the same question and he siad you cant do it - he also mentioned someone about intending to create something to do that one day....

 

EDIT: He said this under his setup for the simplePVR guide:

 

You can not use full PVR features (recording etc) with this particular PVR back-end.

 

It's just an easy way to get IPTV streams and guide support into KODI.

I thought with the HDHomeRun addon for kodi that certain HDHomeRun devices could work natively with kodi. And not need a backend like nextpvr or mediaportal.

Yes but I don't have the HDHomerun - only streaming at home now, so was interested to know if PVR functionality works with streaming. It seems not.

Nextpvr can now do pvr functionally with streaming. And do with out a hardware device it could easily be a small vm.

They are looking at extending SimplePVR backend to include recording features. I'd also be very interested to see this appear.

Slightly off topic. but does anyone know with kodi 17? if you have one pvr client, how to add a second?  Id like to add simpleiptv to mine, but for the life of me can find the way of adding another.  Only if enabling pvr functionality for the first time can you select your backend.
