Recording Service - "Multicast Network Device"

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys!
I hope this topic is not explained somewhere there, but Ive been searching a lot and didnt find answer to my question. 

Iam using latest version of DVBViewer (  + Recording Service ( I would like to ask, how it works with multicast setup of DVB-T streaming. Currently Iam using HW (Aver A835 DVB-T) tuner, and Iam able to successfully stream over LAN via Unicast Network Device. Everything works fine. 

But what I dont know, how to setup Recording Service, to provide multicast stream - probably setup my tuner as "Multicast Network Device". This option is mentioned there: (http://en.DVBViewer.tv/wiki/Options_Hardware) But Iam not able to find this feature in recording service.

probably it has something to do with following changelog
Removed: Hardware/Add Virtual Devices: Removed the multicast device entry.
: (http://www.DVBViewer.tv/forum/topic/50400-DVBViewer-pro-beta-499x/)

So my question is, could please someone explain me, how it works currently with the multicast and Recording Service? How it setup in latest version? How it setup on server and on client side?

Thx a lot.

Sorry, no better news: The Recording Service as server does not support multicast.


The upcoming successor product "DVBViewer Media Server" will most likely provide an API for setting up UDP/RTP multicast, but this will require a licence for expert / professional usage. That's all I can say for now - things are still in progress.

That topic is not about the standalone Recording Service. There was a plugin or function for DVBViewer itself (never used it and I think it's no longer available but I can be wrong) called "DVBServer" which was active only when DVBViewer is running and obviously had much less functionality than RS.

      There's a question I cannot answer myself.
      I have two physical servers in one subnet with recording services installed (ports are changed to be different) .
      DVBViewer on server 1 sees channels from local cards without recording service and channels from recording service on server 1 and 2.
      DVBViewer on server 2 sees channels from local cards without recording service and channels from recording service on server 2. But not from recording service on server 1.
      Logs show no tries of connection.

      Ich habe in letzter Zeit immer häufiger Aufnahmen per Recording Service, die als fehlerfrei protokolliert werden (->.log), die sich nach dem Demuxen mit ProjectX als nicht fehlerfrei erweisen. Wiedergabe der TS-Datei stockt auch an den entsprechenden Stellen.
      Empfang ist DVD-C mit Cinergy HTC USB XS (Treiber: 5.9.1202.0). Keine Änderungen der Hardware. Keine Aktivitäten am PC während der Aufnahme.
      Versuchsweise habe ich mal auf eine ältere RS-Version ( gewechselt - leider ohne Erfolg.
      Hier die entsprechenden Logs vom RS:

      dummerweise habe ich das neueste iOS auf meinem iPad installiert und nun funktioniert leider der Recording Service über die App nicht mehr bzw auch nicht über die HTML-Seite per Safari.
      Meine Vermutung ist die fehlende Unterstützung des Quicktime Plugins. Ich glaube, die Abschaffung war angekündigt und ich finde auch keine Hinweise oder Aktivierungsmöglichkeiten mehr dazu.
      Man kommt bis "Stream starten" und dann wird kein Video angezeigt: "Der Stream konnte nicht geladen werden". Habe ich vielleicht etwas übersehen?
      Obwohl es schon relativ umständlich war, bis man den Stream sehen konnte, vermisse ich das jetzt doch sehr.
      Die jeweils neuesten Versionen DVBViever und Recording Service habe ich auf dem PC installiert, V6.0.3 und Die PC-Programme finde ich übrigens genial.
      Beste Grüße.
