Apple TV app, Mac server

Postby kettykrueger » Mon Aug 01, 2016 4:56 pm

Hi all

First post. Installed DVBLink yesterday and so far it going great!!

Initial feedback after 24 hrs of usage:

-Works surprising well. Love the full screen EPG.
-Pausing, FF, RW in live TV would be great.
-How do I get to the recorded file in Finder?
-Selecting a channel takes a few seconds, like sometimes 8 seconds or so, could this be improved?
-Selecting a channel sometimes doesn't work, if I close the app the entry again it normally works. Could be an issue not releasing tuners?
-Minor issues with picture quality. On a few occasions, the picture goes garbled for a second (not a major issue). Some channels look garbled on load for a second or two.
-How do I change logos for channels?
-Does the EPG refresh automatically? Come to use the server today and don't have any data for a couple of channels?

What is the difference between the DVBLogic app on Apple TV and the Antenna App? They both seem to be made by DVBLogic.

Thank

Working on it.

-How do I get to the recorded file in Finder?
Should be available at the DVBlink shared folder -> RecordedTV

-Selecting a channel takes a few seconds, like sometimes 8 seconds or so, could this be improved?
it depends on the many factories, network, tuners, etc... should take a 1-3 sec.

-Selecting a channel sometimes doesn't work, if I close the app the entry again it normally works. Could be an issue not releasing tuners?
Yes, and it is in the todo list

-Minor issues with picture quality. On a few occasions, the picture goes garbled for a second (not a major issue). Some channels look garbled on load for a second or two.
Working on improving

-How do I change logos for channels?

Thanks for the reply.

Awesome bit of software!!

I'm still struggling with EPG data. Again, today it doesn't appear to have refreshed. Does it make a difference that I'm using the free EPG guide? Will this not happen if I pay for the EPG data?

EDIT 1: Just tried an EPG scan and the channel data is still missing. The data was perfect last night.

EDIT 2: Restarting the mac worked. Will I need to do this regularly to get up-to-date guide data?

EDIT 3: Recordings are not in the specified folder. They are available in the app, then I can download it but I'd like to get be able to get it them.

Thanks

The Default EPG data totally depends on your channels. I mean whether the data in the stream or no. Also the default data may be only for day or even for a few hours. The data from TVadvisers available for 10 (some channels 14) days

Also, Please set log level to info, restart DVBLink server, wait up to 20 minutes , download and attach zipped DVBLink log files here.

Information on how to set log level and download log files can be found there:

Also, on the attached screenshot, can you see the location of the recordings, and in Finder they are not there!!

But they are present in the app, under 'TV Recordings'.

Log files are not full. The Info level was not set. Anyway seem from time to time your tuner busy by another software or so, and the dvblink serevr can't get a stream from them.

As for recordings, look for here:
/Applications/DVBLink.app/Contents/dvblink/share/RecordedTV/
NETGEAR RNDU2000; Synology DS112j, DS 212j, DS213+, DS 712+; Western Digital WD ex2; Asustor AS3, RPI2 ...

Thanks.

So the tuner being busy by another piece of software makes sense but what problem is that causing? the incomplete guide?

That location just contains a thumbnails folder, are the recordings hidden? And why is it not recording to the location I've specified?

Thanks

Hello again

A new issue. After playing a channel for a minute or two the banner will display on the bottom of the screen and the picture will freeze for a second, go garbled then return to normal.

Is this a known issue?

I doubt it's my connection. Running ethernet so don't think it's it's that. Should I post logs again?

But it is related to the HD channels or for both SD/HD?

I think it might just be HD channels. Don't have this problem with other apps though (been using Channels and InstaTV).

EDIT: just happened with an SD channel.

Really odd, it only happens once. Switch channel, play's fine for a minute or two, then it happens again.

Thanks for the help

Hi

After a reinstall the problem has been resolved!

I do have another problem though!! I was watching an HD channel when the commercials came on, the sound disappeared. Exiting the channel, went back into it and it was fine. Then, when the commercials finished and the programme started again, the sound went again. This time I switched the audio in the swipe-down menu, then switched it back and it was fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
