Playing While recording - miniDLNA

Added by Alex & Cats over 1 year ago

Hi all,

Im trying to use Tvheadend so i can start playing back a show while it is recording. At the moments im all setup on my rpi with dvb-t2 hat. I am running a miniDLNA server on there aswell however the server does not appear to pickup the TS file until recording is complete.

I have a samsung smart tv that runs tizen and i was using minidlna as ideally i would like to not have to rely on another device. I do though have a a firestick should i not be able to do this without relying on something else.

Any ideas for setting this up with or without the firestick, from the forum members ?

Thanks. Alex

Q1. Why watch record not a live stream
Q2. there is a playlist for recording's why use dlna for that?

Have you try to use xupnpd and ssiptv?

Hello

Thanks for the message :)

Q1. Program runs 7pm-8pm, often i want to start watching the program at say 7.30 when i get in from work. So i need to start watching ( from the beginning ) before the recording is complete ?
Q2. Im not sure i follow this one. The recording is running on the RPI which is headless does this help

I looked at xupnpd is this better than miniDLNA when it comes to indexing content thats still being written ?

Thanks. Alex

Until file is written its a "virtual file"
not possible to be read simultaneously.
There is other solutions for that, with depend web service not a local file, or HLS type recording.

I would agree that streaming via IPTV would be a better route than DLNA. TVHeadend will stream the recording while it is still recording. Generate a m3u playlist with the url http://<tvh server ip>:9981/playlist/recordings then feed that into your TV IPTV app.

Problem with Smart TVs in they are usually not very smart and entering a streaming playlist into their software can be quite annoying.

A media player box with Kodi installed and hts pvr backend will make this very simple.

Actually SmartTV's have problem with TS over HTTP for live streaming.
Demuxing on non Android TV is limited.

Thanks new to most of this will try the IPTV route if that fails will try kodi!

Cheers for the advice :)

If someone implement this to TVH will be great

This will solve all your problems with exact time to play.
