Hi, as the title says I need help with setting up a port forwarding rule in my Fritzbox in order to reroute port 9983 to 554 so more SAT>IP clients can communicate with Tvheadend SAT>IP server.

Can you extend the help information in Tvheadend how to do this?

As testing setup I'm using VLC as SAT>IP client entering the URL from Tvheadend. Until now VLC cannot open the stream, probably because of port 9983 which has to be 554 for VLC.


I cannot install Tvheadend as root, so I need port forwarding.
This is an example of how it looks like in my Fritzbox. is the device where Tvheadend is installed.

Waiting for your PR once you figured it out.

Examples for other routers as it should be re-routed from port 9983 to 554 are welcome as well.

It doesn't matter which Router is used, the forwarding should be the same on every Router. Please don't add specific documentation for a specific router, only general information on what needs to be done.

I know and will do, but you can't help?

Never mind, as workaround I'm now using a Raspberry Pi as Tvheadend server and now I can use port 554 without problems ;-)
