    A few comments on NextPVR v5.0 and above...

    I just wanted to give you all a minor heads up on changes that are coming in the next few months. I've been beavering away on the next major release of NextPVR, which is a large new development. This version of NextPVR will be the first to be cross platform capable, with the backend server able to installed on a variety of platforms. Quite a bit of effort has gone into making it compatible with existing clients, like Kodi, XNEWA, Android/iOS apps etc.

    While this new release reuses a lot of code from previous releases (public api, recording service, much of the UI etc), most of the platform specific stuff and plumbing has been rewritten. With these large changes, 5.x will be in beta for a while - initially private beta, and then a public beta. Because of this, for a period of time I'll also be maintaining the 4.x code base, and potentially doing some more releases on that version, rather than forcing the use of 5.x from the get go.

    The program is excellent, and I use it daily.

    The only thing I find troublesome and I hope you incorporate in a future release is to opt out of creating duplicate channel numbers for different channels.
    I hope you enable the option to only scan new devices to empty channel numbers.

    Many thanks for your efforts.

    I don't understand what you mean, but if you want to post more concrete details in the support forum, I'll take a look.

    Does this mean that I will now be able to install on a Linux server?

    That's good to hear. The one thing about NPVR that I always wish was a port to Linux.

    I'm looking forward to being able to use the next version.

    Thank you for all your efforts.

    Seconded, I've been trying to get away from Windows since windows 8. Not fond of the alternatives to NPVR. Will it make its way into the Debian repositories?
