Description

Hi,

I simulate an AirPlay audio player with https://github.com/mikebrady/shairport-sync on a Debian computer.
I can choose this audio output from my MacBook or my Apple TV. Sound is great without any delay except when I watch a Live TV channel from TVH.
In this case there is an inline audio stutters and it's impossible to correctly watch a live TV channel.
With VLC video is Ok but sound is stutter.
With Kodi (MacBook or Apple TV) video AND audio stutter.

I can confirm that this issue does not appear on Kodi when I watch a local movie.

Just tell me if you need more information, also I can perform tests by installing another version of TVHeadend

Thank you!

Tests done on:
  • Apple TV with Kodi 17.6 and official TVHeaded PVR
  • MacBook Pro with Kodi 17.6 and official TVHeaded PVR
  • MacBook Pro with VLC and M3U file

BTW: I use an HDHomeRun with two tunners DVB-T (France TNT channels)
