cannot stream from DVB-T2 and TVH 4.1 (unstable) with Kodi 17.1

Added by Michael Freudenberg about 4 years ago

Hi All,

i have an issue running a HTSP stream from Kodi 17.1 together with TVH 4.1 installed from the following Ubuntu respository:

https://dl.bintray.com/tvheadend/ubuntu unstable main

When i click on a channel in the list in kodi to start the stream, i don't get any picture or sound. When i check the TVH status, i can see that a subscription is running successfully. Kodi does not throw any errors or warnings. I'm attaching the Kodi.log wiht debugging enabled.

The THV log looks as follows:

  • Firstly upgrade to 4.2 - See the AptRepository page - I don't think the Ubuntu repo has been updated in a while.
  • You can try turning off "Use packet backlog" in Configuration -> General -> Base, or maybe even enable it.

I upgraded my tvh to 4.2 by the use of this repository:

apt-add-repository ppa:mamarley/tvheadend-git-stable

Now i have the same issue, but after a few seconds of streaming Kodi crashes (please find attached the Kodi.log). I tried also streaming directly via VLC - this seems to work. I have a barely judder-free picture and sound.

After trying around a while, i figured out that DXVA2 Hardware Acceleration caused the problem. After disabling it and switching to DXVA i was able to stream flawless from kodi. The drawback is, that my CPU load is quite high due to the HEVC codec. Maybe i will have to check for an driver update of my intel onboard graphics card.

Thanks a lot!

Michael

PS: Disabling and enabling Packet block didn't seem to make a difference for me.
