Description

Hello,

I want to build a TVH server "farm" with three servers.

Server 01: Backend with capacity to transcode 5 streams
Server 02: Backend with capacity to transcode 10 streams
Server 03: Frontend on dedicated Server

Server 01+02 have the same muxes/services/channels.
I finde a function in TVH to "Merge same name" if I Map services to channels. TVH have merged the channels with the same name at the Server 03 (see attachment).
The streams/channels to be transcode are not fix and I wand they do transcoding on demand distributed to the two severs (like load balancing)

Up to this point everything as desired (theory).

constraint for test: Server 01+02 have 1 max. input stream.

When I load the channel list he takes the first stream(channel 1) from server one and the second stream(channel 2) from server two.

But if I want to see twice the same stream , he does not take it from the chache and connects to the two servers.

What I am doing wrong or what I can do, to make its work ?

Best wishes
