SageTV MiniClient for Android TV (jvl711)

This has morphed from me sharing a fork of the SageTV MiniClient to me maintaining and posting releases of Stuckless' original work. I will post APK releases to the github repository. I will also post releases to the Google Play Store and Amazon App Store.

Beta release will not be published to github. I generally will just post a link in the forums. Once I am comfortable that they are stable I will post to GitHub/Google/Amazon.

Release Notes

1.6.3 (2020-10-10)

- jvl711: Rearchitected how playback position was retrieved. Switched to a UI thread that updates every 500ms.
- jvl711: Fixed an issue with seeking after resume from pause. The state was not getting properly updated
- jvl711: Allowing proper seek when playback is paused. Allow the position to get reported to sage server on pause
- jvl711: Added the blue icons that I made for FireTV to Android project

1.6.2 (2020-9-11)

jvl711: Fixed an issue with Android 11 where images were not rendering
jvl711: Upgraded ExoPlayer to 2.11.8
jvl711: Fixed the volume up/down keys. You need to map them to NONE for them to work properly
jvl711: Volume up/down mapped to NONE by default
jvl711: Added fixed transcoding settings to allow for HD transcoding from the server to MKV container
jvl711: Added the ability for Exoplayer to filter the Video codecs that are not supported. This will allow SageTV to transcode on unsupported formats
NOTE: The fixed transcoding changes need a patched version of Sage.jar to work properly. Hopefully those changes will make it into the next release of SageTV

1.5.2 (2020-7-09)

jvl711: Attempted to add a workaround for the FireTV where you can not close the system keyboard. Next/Previous buttons should now close it.

1.5.1 (2020-6-30)

jvl711: Update ExoPlayer FFmpeg extension to 2.11.5
jvl711: Added a setting for ffmpeg exoplayer extension, to turn it on, off or prefer
jvl711: Updated some deprecated code in the constructing on the SimpleExoPlayer instance

1.5.0 (2020-6-26)

jvl711: Moving to new Play Store app
jvl711: Updated to exoplayer 2.11.5
jvl711: Added HEVC codec to list of codecs sent to sage durring connection
jvl711: Attempted to clean up the current playback time, and the seek
jvl711: Turn off rendering cues if by default
jvl711: Add error message toast on ExoPlayer2 Error
jvl711: Fixed issues with seeking when using exoplayer and push mediasource
jvl711: Added some basic support for subtitles in ExoPlayer

How do I install it on a ShieldTV, which is running Android TV? Since it isn't in the Play Store, I am not sure how to install it.

Thanks and I appreciate you taking this on!

I am not 100% sure for the shield. but you will need to put the APK file on a USB stick. You will need to allow third party sources to be installed. Use a file explorer app and click on the APK to install it. If you Google how to sideload an app on the shield you will probably get better instructions.

Can this be sideloaded on my Galaxy smartphone, or a FireTV device? If so, is the user interface able to allow the entering of username/password for remote use while I travel?

OMG. I'll definitely have to try this out as I have a similar era 43X830C which the (current) MiniClient has issues with. I think it might use the same MediaTek processor as yours.

This was my first foray into Android development, so I am still learning a lot. I am mainly trying to keep ExoPlayer up to date and fill in some missing features or bugs. It does not seem that IJKPlayer is being updated anymore, so right now ExoPlayer seems like the best choice to keep this moving forward.

This release has a different name/icon so it can be used side by side with the original. So if I break something, you will have a backup.

I am sharing this as is. You can post questions, comments and issues, but there is no guarantee I will get to them. I will continue to post updates as I make them.

SageTV_Mini_1_0_7.apk
Installed in FireTV Cube 2 and it works great ... seeking is much better ... with this fork.

The only thing is that the Icon does not appear ... all I see is some default gray box to launch the APK.

is it possible to add touch scrolling to the ui and things like swipe to go back or is it too late for that?
scrolling through lists still requires using the scrollbar like a desktop application
