Couple of channels not showing up in Kodi

Added by Reggie Burnett 5 months ago

I've seen this before on 4.2. I'm now using latest 4.3 build and I have a couple of channels that were not created when I did the service mapping. So I manually created the channels and manually mapped in the services. Those channels will simply not show up in kodi 17.6 or 18. I've restarted tvh, cleared the kodi epg cache. No matter what I do those channels do not show up.

Any ideas?

Try clearing the Kodi TV database as well. It's usually in userdata/database/Tv##.db or similar

Didn't help. I tried with Leia. Deleted the Tv.db file. I also removed the advanced settings xml file (since I'm using a mysql backend)

The one channel I'm looking at is 1111 (CNN) on my local Comcast lineup. It appears in the tvheadend webui but simply will not show up in Kodi.

stumped

Just to follow up. I connected with tvhclient from my android phone and the 1111 channel appeared without issue so it's clear that TVH is providing the channel info properly.

I went into tvh and deleted channel 1111. I then went to the service for that channel and tried to map it again. It reported that it was ignored. I cannot see why it wsa ignored.

Same here. When I go to web interface I can see 35 channels enabled. Kodi gets only 28. Me scratching head.

I just had the same problem, go to Configuration -> Channel/EPG -> Channels. Make sure each channel not showing up has a Channel tag.
If you want you can go to the Tags tab and make a custom one.

Now go to Configuration ->Users, now edit the User that you are using on the front end.

Scroll to the bottom and in the drop down window labeled channel tags select all your tags. Click Apply
Now on the same window click "exclude" channel tags, Click Apply, and now Un-Click "exclude" channel tags.

This seems to reset something with the user settings. Refresh your PVR front end and the channels should show up.

I'm having the exact same, if not similar problem. I'm missing a single channel (KION-DT). I can see the channel in tvheadend web config, I can see it in the HDHomeRun App, I can see it in the TVHClient app on iPhone. For some reason I can't see it in Kodi 18 (HTSP client version 4.2.13) in Mac and LibreELEC. I'm attaching the Kodi log here, in case anyone can make any sense of it. It looks like the channel is being seen by Kodi, it's just not being loaded for some reason:

22:26:11.940 T:123145387945984 DEBUG: AddOnLog: Tvheadend HTSP Client: pvr.hts - channel added id:650577145, name:KION-DT

I've tried fresh/clean installs of everything, I've tried deleting the channel and readding it, and I've tried the above suggestions, but nothing has worked. To me it seems like an issue with HTSP client version 4.2.13. Is there a way to downgrade?
