Some Kodi skins support PVR Thumbnails. I guess this would be three different features:
- support Thumbnails via HTSP
- create Thumbnail files for recordings (could also be done with a post-processing script)
- creat Thumbnail files for channels (on-request from kodi, some skins like Mimic support showing only 8 of your most-watched channels, but probably still not a good idea, could also be done with an external script, but i would do it (optionally) with the channel-discovery and/or epg-scan, when the channel/mux is tuned anyway)

but there is a small problem,
TVH is OnDemand streamer aka images from used streams can be taken.

Yeahyeah, i'm aware that you can do this with ffmpeg, that's what i meant with "could also be done with a post-processing script". But having thumbs on the tvheadend-server is pretty pointless, if you can't access them via htsp...
But now that i'm thinking about it, if you have *.edl files, kodi will use the marks to jump around the advertisments. Does someone know if the cutmarks are somehow transmitted via htsp, or is there already a generic way in htsp to access a file on the server...?
