Hello! I've been using tvheadend for a couple months and trying to get it solid enough to pass the "wife test."
My entire setup is self-contained on TrueNAS Scale with Tvheadend, xTeVe and Jellyfin installed from TrueCharts and traefik handling the ingress web traffic.
I have the following TV sources:
* HDHomeRun (Old 2 tuner units) connected to an attic antenna (I used these for MythTV a LONG time ago)
* IPTV service, XtremeHDIPTV
The IPTV provider has a HUGE list of channels. Based on research, I implemented xTeVe to filter the M3U to a list that I could handle.
Lastly, the guide data from the IPTV provider is vastly lacking, no episode data, limited days in advance, etc. So, I have Schedules Direct configured, with Dish Network selected as a the provider, and mapped the channels appropriately. All seems to be working very well, except...
A few different times, the autorecs linked to any IPTV channels simply disappear. I don't know why, but I'm guessing that the channels are being deleted and recreated in tvheadend. My current suspicion that I'm investigating is that xTeVe us sometimes providing a m3u with the traefik FQDN as the hostname and sometimes uses the NAS IP and still others, the Kubernetes internal IP address. I could reason that this would confuse tvheadend. What can I check or change to eliminate this?
Lastly, do I need to have xTeVe in the mix? I use the filters and mapping to bring the channel list down to something manageable, rather than the several thousand channels available in the m3u. Can tvheaddend handle this efficiently in its current version?
I'm thinking of installing xTeVe in a Debian VM to eliminate the Kubernetes/traefik complexities. Thoughts?
