IPTV MUX scanning control

Added by Luke Jones 7 months ago

I have tvh 4.2.7 installed on Raspbian and an IPTV service provider that supplies an M3U playlist file with 4000+ channels.

As soon as I create an IPTV network and input the URL for my playlist, the server immediately picks up the 4000+ muxes and starts scanning for services.

No matter how I configure the server there doesn't appear to be a way to stop (or at least control) this behaviour.

I can only have one 'session' with the SP at a time so it takes a good 16 hours to scan all muxes (assuming I'm not watching any streams)

I don't want this automatic scanning. I'm only interested in a fraction of the channels and I would much rather be able to manually instruct the server on which muxes to scan.

Is this possible?

Thanks Mark for pointing me in the right direction, that's helpful.

Couple more questions:

- If I add a new network (or force a scan) can anyone advise on the order in which muxes will be scanned please? I can't see a pattern. Is it possible to manipulate this?

- I know that I can manually edit muxes and set their scan status to 'active' but this is really tedious with 4000 of them. Is there an easy way to set multiple muxes to scan in one go?

- Each mux contains two pieces of information I'm interested in 'channel number' and 'channel tags' but I can't seem to add those as columns in the mux list so I can sort by these fields - am I missing something or is this a limitation of the software?

- Finally, is there anyway to set multiple muxes to scan (as in question 2 above) based on the channel number or channel tag values?

Any assistance anyone is able to offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
