Description

First off, let me start by saying as a long time kodi/IPTV Simple user that has just converted to TVH, what a great bit of software this is. Massively configurable and relatively straight forward to setup :)

I am using an IPTV service via m3u that seems touch unreliable, and when playing live TV will sometimes buffer, which freezes and becomes a little annoying.

If I record the show and playback that recording after a short period, the stream appears (with somewhat limited testing) to be very reliable.

Is it possible to set a larger buffer within TVH to alleviate the problem?

As I said in the forum post, you can try this: https://github.com/tvheadend/tvheadend/pull/1212/files

Anyway, this issue could be converted to a feature request: add a setting in the IPTV config to define the incoming buffer size.
