Am just wondering if NextPVR is going to continue being available in the future. Something was mentioned in their forum about your api thing not working with the next v5 version of NPVR, see the end of this thread  https://forums.nextp...754#post529754 Any thoughts ?

The plugin has always relied on community help and hopefully that will continue to occur.

I wouldn't worry - 4.x is going to continue live (and be updated) for a quite a while alongside 5.x, so you'll have ages before someone needs to update the Emby NextPVR plugin to use the main api.

 

I'm also available and happy to answer questions on that api for anyone that decides to tackle the update.

Do you have any info you can share on what's new in V5?  Got any links?

A documentation about the main api would be nice. The Kodi addon isn't one!

It's still a work in progress, but I've posted a few bits of info about it at the NextPVR forums. The most significant change is that it's multi-platform.

The NextPVR project is a hobby for me, and I don't like writing documentation, so no it's not really documented. It is a pretty straight forward api though, and I'm happy to answer anyone's questions. 

 

For example, the bulk of the things Emby needs to do to interact with NextPVR would be:

 

 
 
 
Schedule a one off recording from show in guide
 
Schedule a recurring recording from show in guide
http://127.0.0.1:886...327&format=json (several extra optional parameters to this one, which I can list if Emby want them)
 
Delete/Cancel a recording
http://127.0.0.1:886...234&format=json
 
Delete/Cancel a recurring recording
http://127.0.0.1:886...444&format=json
