Force reload of IPTV network

Added by Hiro Protagonist about 3 years ago

Is there a way to force a read of an IPTV network?

If I make a change to a locally defined IPTV network file, I have to wait for the 'Re-fetch period' to expire before the file is read again.
Is there any way [short of defining a new network] to re-read a network file immediately?

Did you discover a solution? Without deleting and then recreating my network, I can't get this to work...

No joy, waiting seems to be the only option.

What happens when rescan network?

It just picks up the old muxes, loaded in from a previous version of an M3U, and re-scans those.

I think I may have worked out a work-around;

If you:

1. Edit the IPTV Network - change the filename to one that doesn't exist (I've just been deleting the "u" from the end of "*.m3u", for instance).
2. Click on "Apply" (not "Save") - it will then give a log entry of "file not found".
3. Then re-edit the filename back to the original (e.g. replacing the "u" at the end).
4. Click "Save".

TVH will then scan the mux for new/changed muxes and leave the originals as is (so you don't have to start the whole creation and scanning process again).

Seems to work for me.
