Description

I encountered a problem setting up tvheadend (4.1 - 1710) as a Sat>IP server. Every time I tried to save the Sat>IP settings, the program crashed immediately and restarted. I tried different settings --> always the same problem.
After some time I realized that the firewall was blocking a request from my server to the google nameserver. I downloaded the source code from github and found the google nameserver in the tcp.c. I changed it to my local nameserver and reinstalled tvheadend --> no problem with Sat>IP anymore.
Maybe it would be a nice feature if there would be a option where you can change the nameserver from the google nameserver to another one.

Best regards

TVH uses google nameserver IPs only to determine the outbound IP address in the system. If you use '-b' option (bind to IP) then tvheadend skips this procedure.

If you have a better hint how to determine the outbound IP address, I welcome any ideas.
