You can't have 'the same content' via 'TV>Channels' as 'TV>Recordings' - one is live (regardless of whether you are timeshifting or not - that simply delays the packets that would have been sent if it were live) and the other is recorded to disk in transport stream format. If you mean 'it's the same program' then that's fine but technically it's not the same content and it's important to differentiate between the two for the purposes of this issue.
I was under the impression that if I did not transcode it would be the same. When I download the file (.ts format) via the recording section in the tvheadend webinterface and put it on the kodi player it plays fine. Or is that also a different format as when it streams the recording via htsp?

The user's streaming profile is set to htsp and for the DVR recording profiles I tried setting both pass and htsp.
