I'm new here, but my understanding is that the "Recently Added" behavior changed from Eden to Frodo.
Frodo now uses the files' date/time (ctime/mtime) instead of using the actual date it was added to the XBMC database.
Please disable "Verbose" logging When logs (server or client app) are requested for an investigation, please do NOT turn on "verbose" logging unless it is explicitly requested.
Verbose logging makes things much more difficult in the majority of cases.
The Kodi interface is the same for ALL operating systems, such as Windows, Mac, and Linux.
I checked the "About Firefox" menu option and found I am using version 44.0 Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical -1.0 Firefox is now up to 51.0 in the stable branch, so obviously I have missed several update cycles.
The thing is, I have all the official Ubuntu Software and Ubuntu partner packaged software (except for source code) enabled in my software sources.
I apologize for the delay, as this is taking MUCH longer to pull everything together than I had hoped. Download the latest full version of Kodi, and install it on your computer. This page was originally written for older versions of the Kodi interface (before 17), but has been updated for the newer interface.
This is the framework for your entire media center!
