I'm still in the middle of setting up my IPTV system with kodi as frontend.
Right now I'm testing several IPTV providers. Quite often I record two streams at a time. The providers seems to handle this in two ways. A) Either they give me two separate accounts or B ) allowing one account to have two streams running at the same time.
I have at the moment not added any hardware devices and iptv streams are playing ok. But I don't get any warnings if i'm about to schedule a timer that violate the max two streams I'm allowed to use. Or if I start a live streaming from the tvguide and the system all ready is recording two streams.
I can see there is a hardware device "TS Stream device" and "DVB IPTV network device". Do I need to setup any of those and how does this work with the A) and B ) senario?
Seit 2 Tagen wird bei Telekom-Entertain - Sendern kein Bild und kein Ton mehr angezeigt, außerdem ist nach Aufruf des DBViewers auch kein Webseitenaufruf mehr über die Browser (Edge. Firefox) möglich. obwohl die Verbindung besteht und Fernsehen über den Media-Receiver funktioniert.
Neu installiert wurde eine Update von GDATA Total Security auf die Version 126.96.36.199, m.E. tritt das Problem seit diesem Zeitpunkt auf.
I can't get IPTV working in DVBViewer Pro.
Now, what i have done:
- TransEdit (188.8.131.52) -> New List -> DVB IPTV
- Blind Scan -> IPs and port -> Scan
- Scan ready, now Update All and close, in TransEdit windows Save and save channels list.
- DVBViewer -> Settings -> Options -> Hardware -> Add -> DVB IPTV Network Device -> Apply -> OK
- DVBViewer -> Channel Editor -> Import the channels list -> Selecting earlier saved list -> Open
All channels founded are in list but not working. Is there someting more what i have to set up?
würde gerne die Sender von EntertainTV (nur die freien) auf meinem iMac anschauen!
Der Aufruf in einer m3u-datei funktioniert bei mir nicht, ist es grünsächlich nicht möglich oder müssen noch weitere Einstellungen (Port???) vorgenommen werden.

I have used and currently still use Neutrino CL (CL=Channel List) plugin:
Surely many users have used and appreciated it.
But I would report the same a brief description of this plug-in, in order
to highlight its great usefulness.
Neutrino CL is an add-on supported by many osd interfaces, with the following key features:
- It shows your channel list, organized in different sub-lists.
Each sub-list corresponds to a folder that you have previously defined in the channel editor.
When the neutrino CL is displayed you can simply press left and rigth keys
to switch between different sub-lists.
Up and down keys are used to scroll, and enter to select the channel.
- EPG information are also showed in a very synthetic way. At the righ of each channel name
you can immediately see which is the current program broadcasted on that channel.
I will had some plugin snapshots as next post.
Unfortunately the plugin is not yet mantained by its creator, Pmneo.
Last revision date is January 14, 2013.
But the good news is that the creator, kindly shared the source code for possible
future development by other people.
The most important current limitation (due to the fact that the plug-in has not been updated since almost 4 years)
is that the IPTV channels are not fully supported: IPTV channels list are recognized and displayed,
but the EPG information is not correctly managed and displayed for them.
I do not have any experience on DVBViewer plugin development, neither on Delphi language.
But I have experience on other programming languages.
So I gave a look at the Plugin Delphi code looking for the possible reasons why IPTV EPG information
is not correctly imported and displayed.
The main plugin source code file seems to be 'UPlugin.pas'.
Another important source file is 'plgGlobals.pas' containg data and function definitions.
Looking for the string 'tuner' I noticed that the 'TS stream' tuner type (used for the IPTV channels)
is not supported.
I also notice that the EPG information is extracted form the DVBViewer database using the channel
SID. This is another problem for the IPTV channel, because they have a dummy SID parameter,
often set to 1 for all of them (it should be instead be univocal, as happens for DVB-T/S channels).
So it seems that in order to support EPG data for IPTV channel, two main modification
1)extend the recognized 'tuner' types, by adding the 'TS stream' category;
2)don't use the SID as acces key to retrieve the EPG data, but another channel univocal parameter.
Is there someone expert in plugin developing who could provide help
to upgrade this plugin?
I think it could be very useful and appreciated to all the users who still are using this
very nice and powerful plugin.
I do not see any other equivalent plugin with the same unique and very handy features...
