Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3

Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

Hi,

I need some help in order to successfully map some channels.

Here's what happening.

I can scan all services on my ISDB-T Network available at my location. They are all marked as OK in the Scan section.

There are 12 muxes, with 28 services available. But here is when things get complicated. I thought this would be easy, since all services available were detected, but no matter what I do, of those 28 services, only 3 are being mapped to channels, and 25 services are being ignored by the service mapper.

I am using version Build: 4.3-224~g9432ddd (2017-06-13T20:24:36-0300)

What should I do to map this services into channels?

Please, let me know.

Give us a log of mapping process.
Is there all channels free?

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

Thanks for replying

First, sorry for the delayed response.

Yes. All channels are free. It is Digital Terrestrial Television. There are no encrypted channels.

The only thing I am seeing is this: http://paste.debian.net/971461/

You'll notice that other channels are found but only the ones inside a particular mux are being mapped as channels.

Hope this helps to shed some light into it.

Please, feel free to contact me if you want more information.

I want to add one more thing.

On the pre-configured muxes to my location are missing two. They were added this month. More are coming by the way, since we're phasing out analog television broadcast in the coming months.

But look at what happened when I manually added one of those new frequencies:

http://paste.debian.net/971464/

AFAIK, it being properly recognized, but the services within this mux aren't being listed on the services tab. Hence, I cannot map it as channels.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried manually mapping the channels? From the Channel tab, create a channel, and manually select the service it maps to.

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

I have tried to manually map the channels. From the Services tab. All of them are being ignored.

Which channel tab do you mean? The only one I am seeing close to this is the Channel/EPG one.

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

This is what is being shown to me on the services tab.

There are only 03 services, where it should be listed (awaiting mapping) 25 services more.

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Robert Cameron over 2 years ago

So I'm confused. Are you saying that it is not finding services, or not mapping services to channels? From your most recent post it sounds like you are saying you don't have the services, but the second image shows 28 ...

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

What I am saying is is not mapping all the services (28) into channels.

Of those 28 services. Only three are being mapped.

On the image below, it should have been listed under the column "Service Name" all other 25 services being detected.

But as you see, there are only three.

I opened this thread to try to understand why this is happening. And how to fix this.

So you can manually create the channels, and then map the services onto them; but, you want Tvheadend to do this automatically for you so you do not have to do so manually. I understand now.

No. I cannot map this 25 missing services because there aren't being listed as services on this tab section. I will only be able to properly manually map those missing services when they appear under the column "Service Name"

It says hide services with their parents disabled in the drop down. Are all of the muxes enabled?

Yes, they are enabled.

I see this in Brazil?
Maybe as on satellite there is wrong pids for video.
Add a picture of service info from some of channels with can not be mapped.

Add new ticket for this bug

Disable unused EPG grabbers.

Yes. I am in Brazil.

Where I can find this 'service info' from the channels not mapped?

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

Also, if by chance there are wrong PID numbers, where can I edit?

Sorry for these questions. But I honestly don't know.

Blue info button at service line after "play"

You can try to "Type overwrite" service type and then to map.

There is only those three services that already mapped on this tab.

There is nothing more.

Where can I change this setting?

If only applies to the listed channels under the service name column won't work.

Because there aren't any else listed.

That's the issue.

Are you sure that you don't filter any colonum?

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

This instance of tvheadend were compiled yesterday.

Everything you see is default settings.

I really don't know why the other services aren't being listed on the services tab.

Is there a way to force this channels being mapped?

The thing is I have another instance of TVheadend that I compiled in late 2015 that works.

The only reason I am trying to upgrade is because I am having issues with sound. The code is too old.

Before I even post here I tried to import the .hts old folder but it didn't work. Lots have changed.

It has to be done from scratch. So, here I am trying.

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Robert Cameron over 2 years ago

Is there some feature that's only in 4.3 that you need? If not, is there a reason you're using the unstable development branch rather than the stable/release branch?

If not, then instead of using master, you should really be using the release/4.2 branch.

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

I am doing a compile of the 4.2 branch right now on my Rpi2.

Let's see if there is some improvement.

I will let you guys know.

RE: Help mapping services to channels on Tvheadend 4.3 - Added by Hobbes Hobbes over 2 years ago

The issue is now solved.

The latest stable branch (4.2.2-48~g4fa99a6) did it for me. I haven't mentioned before, but the first one I tried, even before the latest git pull (4.3) it was a docker container, but with a previous release version, that didn't work as well.

I am seeing a lot of improvement on video playback and none issue regarding sound. Which was the reason I set myself to look for a newer version from the start.

Thanks to Saen Acro, Robert Cameron for all the help.
