Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately this plug-in seems to have broken in the latest updates to Plex server.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Please describe the problem in more detail (OS, server and client version, page or streaming error, ...) and attach the log file (for windows C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Plex Media Server\Logs\Plex Media Server.log)

I have just updated my Plex server to Version 0.9.16.2 (i'm using the Plex pass update channel if that makes a difference), my DVBLink 5.5.0 server is also running on the same hardware/OS.

This is the hardware:
Mac mini (Late 2014)
2.6 GHz Intel Core i5
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
OS X El Capitan10.11.3 (15D21)

I can stream live TV using the DVBLink channel from Plex Home Theatre and Plex Media Player apps on both the local Mac mini and PC client on my network. Apart from being a bit slow to start the stream it seems to work fine. Recorded TV does not playback, it just seems to stall indefinitely.

Live TV streaming does NOT work on the Plex client on apple iOS (iPhone or iPad) or tvOS. On iOS I get the error 'Couldn't create the playback session for this item' and on tvOS it does absolutely nothing, it looks like it doesn't even attempt to try to play.

I have not been able to play recorded TV on any Plex client.

Attached is an extract of the Plex Media Server log file from the point where I loaded the DVBlink channel on my iPhone and tried to play the live stream for BBC ONE HD, this resulted in the error 'Couldn't create the playback session for this item' to be displayed on the iPhone.

I've also attached the corresponding part of the com.plexapp.plugins.dvblink.log file, I presume that might have some useful info.

Let me know if you would like anymore info or logs or I can test it in a different way.

I'm sorry, but I do not understand, what does not work regarding the older version Plex Server? Playback Recorded TV?

The previous version of Plex Server (sorry I don't have the version number) did not stream Live TV or Recorded TV on any of my clients, but I'm new to this so that was the first version of DVBLink Plex client/Plex Server I had used.

With the current version of Plex Server (0.9.16.2 <- Might be Plex Pass only) the streaming of Live TV is working in the Plex Home Theatre (PHT) and Plex Media Player (PMP) clients on both Windows 10 and Mac OS X (I don't know about other OS's as I only have these two), but it is not working on iOS or tvOS Plex clients.

On iOS I get the error mentioned above 'Couldn't create the playback session for this item'

On tvOS I do not get any error at all on the client side, it simply does nothing at all.

The logs I attached above were specifically extracted at the timestamps I was reproducing the scenario of attempting a live TV stream in the iOS Plex Client.

I have been talking to the original DVBLink Plex addon developer and here is his statement:

Plex had always issues playing live TV and recordings on iOS devices. It is related to their transcoder.
Apparently, in the latest version there were some fixes to transcoder functionality as streaming seems to work on iOS 9.2.1 devices in combination with Plex running on a Windows machine.
If some other server-client combinations still do not work then it means that fixes to transcoder were only partial.

As a bottom line - fixes to GUI can be done, but not fixes to Plex transcoder functionality. For these issues you would need to contact Plex devs directly.

Attached are the log files from my attempt using the replacement __init__.py file in DVBLink.bundle

There was no on screen error on the iOS device, it did not play the requested channel.
