Technical issues

The time zone of the receiver does not match the time zone of the Android device. Please check the time zone of the receiver under Menu - Settings - System - Time zone and compare it with the time zone of the Android device. 

Please check the time zone of your device. Some Android TV devices show the correct time but has a wrong timezone set. You can check this by opening the about area in my app. You can also change the timezone in "More settings" within the app if your TV does not offer this feature.

The app shows all bookmarks of Enigma2. You can also add more directories including subdirectories to the app to make them visible. To do so, go to Settings - Recordings and select Manage Recording Directories.. Now select Add Directories and enter a directory that is available on your receiver. If FTP access is set up in your current profile, all subdirectories can also be determined and added automatically.

With the option Keep directories up to date new subdirectories will be added automatically during the data update.

In this case the default recording directory is not set correctly.

Under Enigma2 there is usually the directory /hdd/movie and /media/hdd/movie which are identical. In the app, /hdd/movie is the default directory. If /media/hdd/movie is the default directory, you can change it under Settings - Recordings - Default recording directory.

This is a bug in the plugin OpenWebIf which was fixed in a newer version. Just update the plugin.

The app only shows EPG data that is available on the receiver. To keep the EPG data on the receiver up to date, you can use the Receiver Plugin 'EPGRefresh' which switches through the channels to keep the EPG data up to date.

In a beta version of OpenWebif 1.3.9 there are currently problems with the EPG update because the call in OpenWebIf leads to an error. Please update OpenWebif in this case.

A programme that is being recorded can be played back during this time. However, the playback will stop at the point in time when the playback was started. This is due to the way the Webinterfache/OpenWebif provides the stream and is not due to the App. Currently there is no solution for this. In this case start the playback again.

In settings - more settings you can enable the option "Autostart app" to start the app when

Important: Google disabled the feature to autostart apps with Android 10. It is still possible to use it with this unsupported workaround:

Install adb on your PC and enable debug mode on your Android TV device and execute this statement:

adb shell appops set SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW allow

Then enable the setting "Autostart app" in settings again

The app supports surround sound (AC3, DTS) via downmix and/or passthrough if the selected audio track supports AC3 or DTS and the device on which the app is running also supports this and has configured it correctly in the audio settings.

If the internal decoder VLC (see Playback Settings - Decoder) is used, the option Surround Passthrough must be activated under Audio Settings. If no 5.1 / 7.1 sound is heard, please set the Audio Device setting to Digital and activate the Prefer AC3 option. If there is no sound, it is due to an open problem of the VLC player that occurs on some devices (Sony Bravia and others). In this case, ExoPlayer should be used.

If the internal decoder ExoPlayer (see Playback Settings - Decoder) is used, the option Surround Passthrough must be activated under Audio Settings. If still no 5.1 / 7.1 sound is heard, please deactivate the FFMpeg setting and activate the Prefer to AC3 option.
