can multiple clients stream different channels from a single tvheadend server?

Added by David Cook about 1 year ago

sorry for such a newbie question but before I start I would love to know if my family can stream different channels from a tvheadend server simultaneously or if we all have to watch the same station.
Thanks in advance and double your good karma for helping a newbie!

Yes if follow condition requirements:
All user watch channels on same transponder/mux/frequency if 1 tuner or same conditions with multiple tuners.

To expand on the above answers

if you want to watch a different Mux you will need more than one adapter

I set up a deal at work with breakroom televisions using local OTA programming and kodi running at each TV using tvheadend as the backend.

it was glorious until we figured out only one mux at a time it was still super then plugged in a second adapter which allowed the watching of different "Channels"

the TBS 7604 made it work great, also two separate USB tuners will be picked up in tvheadend also making the watching of different muxes possible

Is OTA some new standard?
there is a 4 standards
  • 1. Terrestrial
  • 2. Cable
  • 3. Satellite
  • 4. IPTV

there is no "TBS 7604" model

Typo

TBS 6704

Here in the states the card will pick up the ATSC terrestrial broadcast from an antennae.

the TBS is a good card but not included in the Kernel and for a new person like myself quite challenging to set up but gives 4 tuners on a single card.

Then use Hauppauge WinTV-quadHD and forget about kernel problem after update with TBS.
