IPTV Issues!

Postby akadi » Thu Feb 22, 2018 7:49 pm


I just tried installing DBVLink server on Synology DS 218+ running DSM 6.1. I also added the IPTV product as a trial. I will basically use this setup as a backend for KODI (running on windows 10) to view and record IPTV channels. I am using a remote url for m3u list and EPG. So far I have the following issues:

1)using KODI as a front end, I get a blue screen with a "sorry all tuners are currently occupied by other clients" msg. This happens when I am changing from one channel to another. I looked this up and saw yo need a log file with level set to info. please find that attached.

2)I cant get the EPG to work, even thou I added its url to the EPG grabber, but no EPG data is loaded.

3) My m3u list had groups in it, but DBV Link is unable to read the groups info , and only display a list of ALL channels.

4)I dont get any channel icons, even thou they are supposedly embedded in the m3u list.

I have been using PVR IPTV simple client for Kodi and TVHeadEnd. They both where able to read the EPG from the same URL, present the channels in Groups, and show the channel logos. I wonder why DVBlink is unable to do that. And I also wonder how to fix the turner is occupied issue.

Any help is highly appreciated

Thank you

1) That is because of a bug in Kodi/Kodi DVBLink PVR/DVBLink
In web interface, go to Sources tab and select configure Source to force close all stalled streams.

2) When you use an EPG url with "xmltv.php?" , this is not supported in current version.
New server release is coming, with support for above.

3) Not supported in current version.
Wait for new server release, where channel groups in m3u is supported, or create your own favorite groups manually in DVBLInk.

4) Not supported in current version.
Wait for new server release, where channel logo's in m3u is supported, or use logo packs to assign logo's manually in DVBLink.
