Recording Service - "Multicast Network Device"

Recommended Posts

lukix

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 (5.6.4.0)  + Recording Service (1.33.2.0). 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.

Lukas

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.

      DVBWiewer Recording Service Linux / Wine
       
       
      Hardware:
      Ubuntu 18.04 server 1GB RAM 1 Core FSTAB: mount NFS recordings  from NAS to /mnt/recordings Name: dvbsrv  
       
      Software:

      We need wine (32bit version), Xvfb (short for X virtual framebuffer) for
      running the recording service without screen, cabextract for extracting
      the needed DirectX file (ksproxy.ax) and nfs-common for mounting the
      recording share.
       
      dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt update apt install wine32 xvfb cabextract nfs-common  
       
      Software Wine:
       
      We create a user which is running the Recording Service.
      In the users home we store the needed Windows software parts in the subdirectory "sw".
      SSH to the Ubuntu server as root or become root with "sudo su -".
       
      # create user w/o passwd adduser dvb su - dvb mkdir sw && cd sw wget http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/E/1/EE17FF74-6C45-4575-9CF4-7FC2597ACD18/directx_feb2010_redist.exe cabextract directx_feb2010_redist.exe -F dxnt.cab cabextract dxnt.cab -F ksproxy.ax

      Config from Windows DVBWiewer:
       
      This step is optional. You can configure the Recording Service without these.
      I copied the file from the Windows installation to keep my settings.

      Setup:
       
      Start Xming on Windows client. On Linux Desktop you usually already have a X server running. If using Putty, configure it to have X forwarding enabled. Putty (or ssh -X) to dvbsrv as root.

      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.
       
      Why?

      Hallo.
       
      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 (1.30.1.0) gewechselt - leider ohne Erfolg.
       
      Hier die entsprechenden Logs vom RS:
       
      bzw. von ProjectX:
