    I found the problem, I had to create a firewall rule for port 16891 as well.

    So, now I get the channel list and when I tap on the channel I get a message that says "Media includes video/audio tracks, but none are playable on this device." When I click on the Video tab I see that "Default" has a radio button checked and below that "1920x1080, id:4/3666, video/mpeg2" is grayed out and cannot be selected. All the channels are similar to this. All three devices I tried do the same thing basically.

    Glad you stuck with it to bad the results aren't great. I now can software decode audio with ExoPlayer but supporting mpeg2 video with software decoding is going to be a problem. It does explain why many Kodi users have to turn off deinterlacing, because they are already stressed with software decoding. It reall shows the need for a solution like sub's using server side transcoding. I am looking at finding devices that don't stress the server so hard so I can have multiple clients, comskip, resume and hopefully one day live tv timeshift without Kodi. Hopefully others can take the time to test other classes of devices.

    You mentioned the Nexus 5 and Tab A, what is the third device?

    Since this testing initiative generated little support (much like fred250's testing for a RPi client) I will assume the NextPVR users are happy with Kodi clients.

    Thanks to those that did help.

    Hey, Martin. I didn't respond to this initiative since I don't currently have an Android device to test. But I would definitely be interested in an client alternative to X-NEWA in Kodi on an RPi. For the most part that setup works pretty well for me. But honestly, I really only use Kodi for X-NEWA. So the idea of a more dedicated client with better hardware is appealing.

    BrettB it is appealing to me too and my post was not intended to shout out anyone. The challenge remains finding the right.hardware for the future. Web client is still slow compared to the NMT mode so I need more horses then the RPi has. I was hoping to find out user experience on some other newer units especially Amlogic TV boxes. Also the Shield TV seems to be a great prospect even if it pricy since it meets all my criteria. 4k, UHD Netflix and Amazon Prime but I don't want to buy one for a NextPVR client just for myself.

    Yes. I agree. The web client is "usable" on the RPi, but as you say is not the speediest or most feature-rich (4K, etc.). And I think that many of us would be willing to purchase whatever hardware would work best as a client. (We still see reports of people actively using NMTs. And if mine hadn't died I likely would be, too.) So I think that it is very safe to say that if you made an "updated NMT-type" client, it would not be just for yourself!
