Tvheadend continously restarts after Kodi connect

Added by Christoph Patscheider 4 months ago


I hope someone can help me with this problem or point me in another direction, because i am stuck.
I am running:

Version: 4.2.8-36~g5bdcfd8ac
In Docker: linuxserver/tvheadend:release-4.2
On a Raspberry Pi 4 with up-to-date Raspberry Pi OS
Input: Triax TSS 400 SAT-IP 

On top of that I have pacemaker start the docker image on one of my pis in the cluster, but that should really not make a difference.

I have a tvheadend configuration folder that i pass into my docker container. This configuration runs just fine on my amd64 server and can do everything.

Now when I bring up the docker container on the pi, everything looks good. I can access the webgui. Stream channels from the webgui link via VLC.
But as soon as i try to connect with any of my Kodi devices (all Kodi version 19) tvheadend restarts inside the docker.
I tried to get more details adding logging so my parameters currently look like:

--satip_xml -l /var/log/tvheadend.log --trace CRASH,main,tcp,http,htsp,htsp-sub,htsp-req,htsp-ans,tbl,TS,subscription,satip,iptv,iptv-sub,iptv-pcr,linuxdvb,xmltv

However i still do not see anything in the log, only that it restarted:

2021-04-12 21:41:34.127 [   INFO]:htsp: Got connection from
2021-04-12 21:41:34.129 [  TRACE]:htsp: - method hello

2021-04-12 21:41:35.545 [   INFO]:htsp: Starting HTSP server

Does anyone have an idea what could cause the issue? Or what further trace subsystems could i enable that help get more details?
In case there is any information missing i'd be glad to provide it.

Thanks for looking at,

Instead of trying to find the cause in some old 4.2 version and then backporting the fix for that from 4.3 it is probably easier to just update to 4.3.

Well look at that...
It was kinda late yesterday and one of my tries the next days would have been to try with a fresh setup and/or change the version.
I changed to linuxserver/tvheadend:latest and voila it works. Thank very much for putting me on that right track.
I am now running 4.3-1950~g98a7c6cfd

Though i am a bit confused regarding the releases. In the roadmap on this page, 4.3 is not even listed. Thats why i assumed 4.2 was the latest official and 4.3 is some nightly build.
Do you know about the release system?
