Blank access control may prevent WebUI login
I dont know if this is known but I didnt come across this in any of the discussion threads. Basically I had an access control setup to stream with * as username and password. That was preventing me from logging into WebUI. I needed such an access control to use wget for a streaming fix. I tried reconfiguring tvheadend but didnt help. Finally when I changed the access control to only allow a certain username to stream, everything got back to normal. I just graduated from wget to curl so that I can run my streaming fix for the access control I setup. Thanks!

The wildcard (IP based rules) should be defined before standard rules (if the user connects from the allowed IP for the wildcard rule). Read the help. The permissions are applied in the rule order in the ACL table, thus the last settings wins. So try to move your * rules at the begin of the ACL table.
