    Kodi Recorded TV Show Genres don't match NextPVR backend

    I'm running a NextPVR server(Version 3.9.2) on a backend Windows 10 computer.
    I'm running Kodi Krypton Version 17 beta 7 on a Raspberry PI.
    I have many recordings of off air TV shows and am frustrated that Kodi's genre information is obviously incorrect.

    As you can see in the attached picture, Genre information on the NextPVR server is complete and correct.
    However, genre information on my Kodi device (utilizing the NextPVR addon) shows the genre to be "Other, Unknown".

    I've also been experimenting with using JSON to control and retrieve information from my Kodi device.
    When I request RecordingDetail using JSON from my Kodi device, I get the following response:
    "genre": ["Other", "Unknown"]

    I also get the same result when I run Kodi version 16 on a Windows PC.
    The only common element is the NextPVR addon and the TVDB addon.

    Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

    Kodi genres are based on dvb standards. I uploaded a sample map of Schedule Direct genres a few years ago. It might be available via a forum search.
