5 tuners only one stream

Postby pauld70 » Thu Oct 20, 2016 5:31 pm

I have 5 tuners setup in my server

3x DVB-C & 2x DVB-T

Some of the channels are duplicated across both types of source. I have set it all up so each tuner is a separate source,scanned channels for each source & mapped them. I have then carried out a channel merge to get all matching channels together.

I can watch & record one channel at a time on the different types of sources, however if I try to watch 2 channels on different clients or record 2 channels at the same time one does not start or in the case of live TV the 1st channel stops. Whatever I try I am unable to play or record 2 or more channels at the same time.

Surely I should be able to watch or record 5 channels at the same time

System is Windows 10 with DVBLink 6.0.0

Thanks

In total the source list shows 8 items, but looking at it seems that the 4 on the bottom actually represent a different tuner. Will change the setup to these 4 tuners instead an test :)

Your current setup is correct. The next 4 tuners are displayed by HDHR drivers, but it are not a physical tuners, hence they will not work.

Did some more testing, and it seems that when using the DVBLink Viewer application on Windows I can only few 1 stream at a time, when I start another instance on the same or a different computer of DVBLink Viewer the other stream stops.

Now I have installed the Kodi addon, the DVB Link App for Andriod and started watching with DVBLink Viewer on a Windows computer and now the other streams wont stop.

Is this a known limitation of the DVBLink Viewer application?

It looks like a bug, which should be fixed. The DVBLogic team will check it.
