There's a lot that could be going wrong so it's hard to know where to start, although you might begin by checking your PC and router firewalls to ensure that the ports it uses are being passed through.


All I can tell you at this stage is that it does work, and very well at that. I haven't tried using it to remote control DVBv but being able to browse the guide and schedule recordings is really useful.

What exactly is your problem? I use DVBViewer Controller with no problem, mostly as a remote control (although sometimes I got a strange warning message).

Streaming not working anymore.


Can anyone help me diagnose this fault?  I have the Controller app 1.2.0 on a Nexus 7 with Android 6.0.1, working with a RS host  I use the app frequently for timer control, less so for streaming.  When I tried to stream a live TV channel yesterday, it didn't work.  Neither did any  recordings.  On a first attempt after opening the app, pressing a stream control brings up a blank window with white background; then after 1 second, the screen returns to the Controller GUI.  Subsequent attempts produce no visible response.

It's possible I had not used streaming since the last update to 1.2.0.  I uninstalled the app then installed 1.1.4(build 9) - the last 1.1 build available from github - but this did not work either.

Next, I checked authentication wasn't blocking the stream, even though I hadn't changed this or even set a password (I only use this over my LAN).  All seemed OK.  Other clients were streaming fine.  In fact, I can still stream to the tablet using the browser and even to Kodi with the PVR add-on, though the Controller app would be much easier.

At the host end, the stream requests produce no effect.  This is confirmed by the service log.  Further, a packet capture on the LAN interface confirms no stream requests are reaching the host, though I could see other http requests for status, version and "getrecordings".

So, what's stopping the app from sending stream requests while allowing other traffic?  I removed the MX Player default, but the app doesn't get as far as asking which player to use. Both host PC and tablet have been restarted, but I'm reluctant to cold start the tablet and spend hours reinstalling apps.  Does the app have any external dependencies besides the video player?

Try HLS streams in the webinterface (ip:8089/ios) an Android. Dos this work?

If yes try VLC player as video player on Android or try disabling hardware acceleration in MX player.
