DVBLink stopped working on my Mac

Postby jeroen020 » Sun Mar 27, 2016 4:28 pm

I tried using DVBLink today but it no longer works. The web config interface shows no more tuners under Sources, and Channels is empty too. The TV Adviser tab still shows the Channel name entries, but no Assigned or TV Adviser channels are listed.

The iOS app shows the EPG channel names, but 'No program information available'
When I try to start playback of a channel in the app, it shows the blue screen with 'Sorry, cannot display this channel because there is a technical problem or no TV signal'
The app will show a list of recorded TV shows but when starting to play the video player gives an 'Error - initialization failed' error.

I'm using DVBLink 5.5.0 12358, TV Adviser 5.5.0 12217 and TVSource 12217.
I'm using a Mac Mini with the most recent OSX 10.11.4 update, and OSX Server (also updated to the latest version).

Could my problem be related to the recent OSX update 10.11.4?

Please, set log level to info, try to do a repair of TVSource, go to Sources tab, wait a minute and attach zipped log files.

Have you set log level to info, as i requested?
Also have you tried to install the dvblink server over the current one?
And last thing i need to know - please find the dvblink_configuration.xml file, is it empty or not?

Yes, have done again to be sure, attached here

I just re-installed.. When I start still no EPG data or possibility to watch channels. I rebooted the Mac and still didn't work.

And last thing i need to know - please find the dvblink_configuration.xml file, is it empty or not?

It's 14kB and contains XML, first couple of lines:

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<dvblink_configuration>
  <addons>
    <connect_server>
      <name>DVBLink Connect! Server</name>
    </connect_server>
  </addons>
  <affinity>0</affinity>
  <auxes>
...

I have 2:
HDHomeRun HDHR3-EU (FTA DVB-C with UPC/Ziggo, 20150406 firmware)
Elgato EyeTV Netstream 4Sat (FTA DVB-S with Astra 1/2/3, 1.1.0-402r1 firmware)

Both have disappeared in DVBLink. I don't have an app I can use to check on the HDHR but the EyeTV iOS app allows me to watch the DVB-S channels as expected.

Just checked. Everything works here with OSX update 10.11.4.
The only thing I can think about is firewall - do you have an on your Mac?..

Nope, I do have OSX Server installed, but no firewall configured. It worked with OSX server for a while. Perhaps the 10.11.4 upgrade with server is the culprit one way or another.
I had some issues with the external HD that stores my recordings but can't imagine that's the reason.
What would you recommend, a full reinstall? If so, what are the steps to follow (unistall/deletion procedure)?

To answer my own question, I moved the DVBLink app to trash and am now in the process of reinstalling everything.
