    NextPVR v5 Public Beta

    Over the last 6 months or so I've been busy working on the next generation of NextPVR software. The primary goal of v5 was to making the it possible to run NextPVR on other platforms. We've made good progress with that, and now have an application we'd like to get more people testing it. Today I've posted public beta information, for those that are interested in giving it a go.

    Is NextPVR v5 ready for everyone to install? No. For the average user, wanting a stable release, we'd recommend sticking with NextPVR v4.2.4. The new v5 application is coming along nicely, but there is definitely more work to be done. The new public beta is to get the application into the hands of more users, so we can get more feedback, so we can gauge areas that users want to see more focus in.

    Is it exactly the same as v4? No. Unlike previous versions, the setup and configuration is done using a web application. Where possible I've reused stuff, so there is a lot of familiar aspects to NextPVR v5, but there is also a lot of new stuff and things that needed to be done different ways...so there is definitely some learning curve for getting started with the new application.

    Does it work with other clients, like Kodi, or the iOS/Android apps? Yes. In general it works the same with Kodi, the iOS apps, Apple TV app, and Android app. For those who were using the X-NEWA addon for Kodi, you'll need to update to the knewc addon which replaces it. Emby will need an updated plugin, which will be provided shortly.

    I'd like to say thanks again to the guys that help out with testing. I very much appreciate the help and feedback.
