Installation

See plugin installation

Problems

epgsync-plugin 0.0.1

Everyone who uses 0.0.1 should update. With 0.0.1 you may encounter the following problems:

  • Crash when an unexpected error occurs while syncing (connection broken, buffer full, ...)
  • Impact of epgsync due to thread priority (like e.g. dropped frames)
