I can only watch HD channels

Added by Mike Porter 10 days ago

Hi Guys,

Im a newbee so be gentle with me.

I have a rpi 4 8gb, with a Pi TV hat. I have installed debian Buster and Tvheadend.
I have scanned for channels and have found 14 muxes with 116 mapped channels.

For some reason I can only watch the HD ones (very good quality picture) when I try to watch the SD ones the live tv player says "An unknown error occurred" I cant even record the HD channels (although I can watch them)
Also the EPG doesnt have any "title, Extra text or Episode" information in it.

Ive spent two days on this and im pulling my hair out.
Can anyone help me please?

Mike

I apologize for not knowing that TVH has a facility to use a built-in player. I never try to watch live TV with it. That's what my TV set is for, sometimes :)

But you haven't answered any of my other questions, so I haven't responded further. Hopefully you now understand about playing video a little bit, or will find out soon (be warned, it can get very complicated if you let it). But that won't solve any of your problems with channels not recording or being able to watch them at all.

Guess no space on card or permision problem.
logs needed.

Could be but we won't know without logs, which were what I requested ages ago!
