Description

MHEG-5 is commonly used to display off-air messages and other similar displays without using bandwidth in a DVB stream. However currently, as tvheadend does not support MHEG-5, trying to view these results in a blank screen.

It would be useful if tvheadend could render the MHEG-5 for the client, and shouldn't need much processing power (MHEG-5 is designed to be processed on low-power devices such as TVs)

History

MPEG-5 EPG is already on the roadmap for 4.6 https://tvheadend.org/issues/3783, but i don't think it is intended for a server-side-rendering...

I thought it would be worth mentioning also - here in the UK at least, MHEG-5 is going to be phased out and replaced with hbbTV over the next few years.
