    These new 4K TV have all these browser and apps in them. Has anyone figured out how to use the smart TV to act as an NPVR client? I don't just mean TV guide like functions, I mean playing recordings.

    NextPVR is accessible using web browser software. There are many post in the forum such as, for example, ... https://forums.nextpvr.com/showthrea...ghlight=modern

    There is a NextPVR client for Android and some new TV run support Android apps ... but I don't think that anyone is using the NextPVR app on their TV. Does Kodi software run on any TVs?

    I have never tried to the web app. The NPVR NEWA wiki says stream via VLC. That doesn't sound like something the a smart tv can do, but maybe I'm wrong.

    I looked up your Kodi question. I think some TV's may run Kodi but most don't.

    You would need to use the modern interface not NEWA which will stream transcoded for your TV. Transcoding can be hard on the server though and quality will be less than NextPVR. Browsing on a SmartTV is more of a toy IMO and not something you would want to do regularly.

    I've also heard that the browsers in smart tv's often don't do video playback in web apps, or don't do it well, since the brower is not really intended for that sort of purpose. ie, instead of the youtube web page in the browser, use the youtube app etc.
