Time Change Monitor KODI Add-on


Here is quick add-on I created to monitor for a Time Change in KODI.
Once there is a Time Change, the add-on will run a defined function (default=Reboot)

The most common use case is for timezones that change during the year (eg. Daylight Savings).
When the time changes, the EPG times become in-correct in KODI.
The only way to fix this is by either clearing the guide data, or restarting KODI.

This add-on will poll for a time change every 60 seconds.
If it finds a time change, it will run the defined function.

Note:
It cannot detect the difference between a manual or automatic change.
If you have the service running and manually change your timezone - it will still run.

It should be compatible with all devices.

How to Install

First follow THIS post to install my KODI Add-on Repository.

Now navigate to "Main Menu -> Add-ons -> My Add-ons"
Select ".." then select "Install from repository"
Select "MattHuisman.nz Repository".
Select "Services" then "Time Change Monitor"

Now select "Install" and the add-on will download and install.


It will automatically start running when it is installed.

The add-on can be found under My Add-ons -> Services.
Here you can disable it, uninstall it or change the settings (as below).


Settings


The "Function" can be any of the KODI build-in functions:

(The default is "Reboot")

"No Notifications" when enabled simply hides the pop-up dialog when the function is run.

Enjoy!
