[Support] Linuxserver.io - TVHeadend

I just tested my setup in the remote site. I can easy stream 4 HD IPTV videos simultaneously without any buffering (no more devices to test even more streams). Only the stream via internet is buffering. Again, my raspi 2 in the same network can transport 1 hd stream without buffering; my server with the docker setup can't. Any hint where to look? Thank you.

I can only assume it's something specific to your server. I use TVHeadend daily along with my DigiBit R1 for DVB-S2 and never had an issue.

Finally, I discovered the problem: when streaming over the internet I used the streaming profile "standard" instead of "pass" even though "pass" is the standard profile in tvheadend. On my raspi it works with standard and "pass" as the standard setting. Sorry to bother you and thank you.

For those of you who are struggling with TVHeadend messing up in handling a Hauppauge WinTV-QuadHD card, I just came up with a workaround that separates the two and provides great stability: 

tl;dr: Install minisatip in a separate Docker and let it handle the /dev/dvb instead of TVHeadend, which in turn only gets to use the DVB-C stuff through the SAT>IP network protocol. Problem solved. :D

Hi all,

 

I am having some issues importing xml based epg guides (I hope I am saying that correctly) into TVHeadEnd. The built in tv_grab_huro works great, but I downloaded webgrab++ xml files and tv_grab_wb does not import them. I created the /config/data folder, and when I run tv_grab_wb from the console of the container I get what seems like correct results:

image.thumb.png.d0c0a8f9731867683e0e22c459c6341a.png

 

But when I run the internal grabber in TVheadend, it doesn't have any channels:

image.png.18b5407840bee90b9c21d671b2f0bc41.png

 

So, if am I doing something wrong? or does this mean that NONE of the links in the XML files are returning any content?

 

I am still not sure what I am supposed to do with the .ini files I downloaded from http://www.webgrabplus.com/epg-channels#stc_3D... All documentation I read from webgrab seems to want me to point webgrab to the xml files and that should be pulling in EPG content.

Are you trying to import the config file of webgrab++ using the tv_grab_wg?

Webgrab++ is a standalone software you run to get the TV listing in an xml file that you import into tvheadend using the wg grabber.

.... so I have to run webgrab++ (such as the webgrab container from lsio) separately to generate another xml file that I import with the wg grabber?

Thank you, that was the perfect nudge in the right direction, got it working!

My problem with different version (latest, 4.2, 4.2.1): When streaming with pass TVH tries to transcode the stream which is not necessary at all (IPTV). Is there any option to supress this behaviour? Thank you.

More info is needed. How is you setup and which profiles are you using. Which client are you using.

 

If you are using the tvh gui and the player there, it will transcodes by default.

As a client I am using a Raspi with libreelec. I tried a Rapi 2 with libreelec 8.2 with Kodi 17.6 and a Raspi 4 with libreelec 9.2 with Kodi 9 and TVH client latest available version.

depending on your streams (no hevc) they should all run out of the box as pass, may check if u have a sep. user for your kodi clients and check if pass is allowed for this user and may check if pass is still the default profile ...

How do you know it's transcoding?

You need to check which profiles the users you have are using. They should be set to pass if that is what you want.

Attached please find a sample log. The issue is that the iptv stream does not stream continuously but with a lot of buffering.

Log 

I would suggest to ask over at the tvheadend forums, you'll likely get more help about this there. (Are you using unraid btw? Reason I ask, your UID/GID in the logs show 911 which isn't what it should be for containers.)

Hi everyone. I have spent hours searching forums and cannot find a solution to a problem with docker, tvheadend and SAT>IP.

I am getting this error - RTSP port 554 specified but no root perms, using 9983. I understand that this is because 554 is a protected port number but I cannot see anyway to get the linuxserver, or any other tvheadend docker image to allow it. Has anyone cracked this nut?

You are running the container in host mode i guess? If you run it in bridge mode and need to use port 554 on the outside, you can just port map 9983 to 554.

If you run in host mode, we can try to allow tvheadend to use a port lower than 1024 with a command.

 

Run the below commands and see if that works. Restart the container after you run the commands.

 

docker exec -it tvheadend bash
apk --update add libcap
setcap cap_net_bind_service=+epi /usr/bin/tvheadend
exit

the iptv automatic network is not a good idea

use iptv network (only) then go to transponder and there you past links.

i use tvheadend in home and server, home with usb dvb-t and in server i only use iptv network to push from home.

users, dont foget to add ip adresses in home to server could pick up the stream

how to use TVH with user:password?

i grab channels with udpxy in my network and want to let watch them with auth.
I try http://login:pass@ip:port/playlist/channels
but VLC player still ask login password.
Other software without auth just say 401 and can't play.

Probably better to ask on the tvheadend forum.
