i need to enable debugging to get to the bottom of a problem
my setup is ubuntu server running tvheadend in a docker container using IPTV as a source, serving tv to kodi on libreelec on a rpi3 client.
For the most parts its great now ive realised how to manage the channels properly, but I have a problem with discontinuity errors which causes freezes, switching channel and then back to the original solves the problem until it happens again, i've tried kodi on a windows 10 laptop and an xbox one s with the same errors appearing.
The strange thing is if I use the tvheadend app on IOS and use the rpi3 as the target player its faultless, no errors in the log and no freezing at all.
I realise I need to provide logs for this but I cant figure out how to do this, i enter a path in the debugging window,but nothing gets written to the file.
in "Debug subsystems" you need to enter a comma separated list of which subsystems to debug:
# /home/builder/tvheadend_official/tvheadend/build.linux/tvheadend --subsystems Subsystems: START START STOP STOP CRASH CRASH main Main tprof Time profiling qprof Queue profiling CPU CPU thread Thread tvhpoll Poll multiplexer time Time spawn Spawn fsmonitor Filesystem monitor lock Locking uuid UUID idnode Node subsystem url URL tcp TCP Protocol rtsp RTSP Protocol upnp UPnP Protocol settings Settings config Configuration access Access (ACL) cron Cron dbus DBUS avahi Avahi bonjour Bonjour api API http HTTP Server httpc HTTP Client htsp HTSP Server htsp-sub HTSP Subscription htsp-req HTSP Request htsp-ans HTSP Answer imagecache Image Cache tbl DVB SI Tables tbl-base Base DVB SI Tables (PAT,CAT,PMT,SDT etc.) tbl-csa DVB CSA (descrambling) Tables tbl-eit DVB EPG Tables tbl-time DVB Time Tables tbl-atsc ATSC SI Tables tbl-pass Passthru Muxer SI Tables tbl-satip SAT>IP Server SI Tables fastscan Fastscan DVB pcr PCR Clocks parser MPEG-TS Parser TS Transport Stream globalheaders Global Headers tsfix Time Stamp Fix hevc HEVC - H.265 muxer Muxer pass Pass-thru muxer audioes Audioes muxer mkv Matroska muxer service Service channel Channel subscription Subscription service-mapper Service Mapper bouquet Bouquet esfilter Elementary Stream Filter profile Streaming Profile descrambler Descrambler descrambler-emm Descrambler EMM caclient CA (descrambling) Client csa CSA (descrambling) capmt CAPMT CA Client cwc CWC CA Client cccam CWC CCCam Client dvbcam DVB CAM Client dvr Digital Video Recorder dvr-inotify DVR Inotify epg Electronic Program Guide epgdb EPG Database epggrab EPG Grabber charset Charset dvb DVB mpegts MPEG-TS muxsched Mux Scheduler libav libav / ffmpeg transcode Transcode iptv IPTV iptv-pcr IPTV PCR iptv-sub IPTV Subcription linuxdvb LinuxDVB Input diseqc DiseqC en50221 CI Module en50494 Unicable (EN50494) satip SAT>IP Client satips SAT>IP Server tvhdhomerun TVHDHomeRun Client psip ATSC PSIP EPG opentv OpenTV EPG pyepg PyEPG Import xmltv XMLTV EPG Import webui Web User Interface timeshift Timeshift scanfile Scanfile tsfile MPEG-TS File tsdebug MPEG-TS Input Debug codec Codec vaapi VA-API ddci DD-CI
Or you can use "all" for everything.
For more in depth debugging, you can enable "Debug trace (low-level):" and enter the subsystems as above.
You can also use negative values (ie, -epg) to remove things after an "all".
after applying it will return with a list of all subsystems except epg.

great thanks i have it logging now, not sure which subsystem other than mpegts and tsfix I need to log though?
When I don't know what subsystems, I usually start with all and slowly remove some which I notice I don't need:
I don't use IPTV, but probably iptv and mpegts are needed if you want to start with less an build up instead...
