IPTV not working in DVBViewer Pro 5.6.4


Recommended Posts



First of all, I want to thank the creators for this software, I like it very much.


Can I use it as a player for IPTV?


When I press "Playback" -> "Open Media File..." than choose "playlist.m3u" (attached), application shows the list of channels, but when I press "Play" it shows nothing and message "No playback" at the bottom of the window.


Both VLC Player and TransEdit 4.1.2 works with this playlist with no problems.


Is there any solution?


Sorry for my English.


P.S. Also I have an issue when I change to a channel with no signal application freezes for 5-10 seconds.

Thank you.


And what about the second issue which is not related to IPTV? I mean swithing to a channel on transponder with no or weak signal freezes application up to 10 seconds.


Could anybody reproduce it on your systems?

DVBViewer GE (see download area, read the ReadMe!) supports this kind of IPTV. Simply drag & drop the M3U file into the channel list window. DVBViewer Pro will support it in the next release.

I guess it happens when you are using the TechnoTrend S2-3200. The driver works like this. The tune call does not return until the tuner gets a signal or times out. I know this very well because I have this box :)


BTW: Your TBS 6522 card has not been detected correctly, because it was not yet contained in the hardware database when DVBViewer 5.6.4 was released. See configuration folder\hardware.xml. The vendor entries for both tuners are


<entry name="Vendor">0</entry>

but should be


<entry name="Vendor">31</entry>


Correct it with a text editor while DVBViewer is closed.

Thanks again for your replies.


Currently, I'm using TBS tuner only, TT tuner is just in my system and is not in use.


Maybe application is trying to lock signal during this time or something else?


Is there any tweak to reduce this time?


I've just corrected hardware.xml file, thanks.
