How to connect two DVBlink servers

Postby dirk.msc » Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:53 pm

I am currently running a DVBlink server on my QNAP storage. It's a stable setup and DLNA playback is very good. However, the performance in the app and the web interface is terrible. At best, the response time is about 10-20 seconds.

Now I have bought a Pi 2 which may offer better performance than the QNAP storage. I would prefer not to migrate the DVBlink server to the Pi 2. What I would like to do is set up a second server on the Pi, synchronize both servers and use the QNAP for recording/DLNA and the Pi 2 for programming recordings (web interface and app).

Is there a way to do this? Which files would I have to sync between the two servers?

There are no ways to do this, at least for now, and i think it is not impossible at short term.

You can use both servers, as a separate independed.
It is already discussed there viewtopic.php?f=97&t=29331

The source of my problem is that the DVBlink on my QNAP storage is so painstakingly slow... I just optimized the database again and have disabled logging which also help. However, it still takes 24 seconds to switch the date in the EPG. This is no fun at all :-(
Apart from that problem, DVBlink works very well for me and I want to continue to run it on my QNAP for multiple reasons including location in the house, disk storage, etc.

There must be a way to improve the EPG performance. Why is it calculated in realtime? Can't you pre-compute data to make the display faster?

The other way would be to clone the installation on another server (namely a Raspberry Pi 2). I don't want to install any TV hardware here. I just want to clone data from my QNAP server in order to display the EPG faster and hopefully be able to program recordings and use the TV advisor, too.

I hope you can help...
