Tvheadend SAT>IP server doesn't start at boot

I'm using the internal SAT>IP Server from TVH, but it doesn't start at boot even though the settings are correct and the UUID is set (port 554). Configuration is RPI4.

I already tried to add 'sleep 15' to /etc/init.d/tvheadend, but no luck. I don't see it as SAT>IP server in other applications. When restarting TVH manually it does work again: sudo service tvheadend restart

Is this a bug?

And please add the option 'Disable fast input switch' just like other SAT>IP servers. Afaik this is the only setting which is missing for internal SAT>IP server of TVH.

Thank you!

O, sorry, it's the latest Ubuntu 22.04 LTS distro of TVH and I thought it was a general bug.
However, with Buster and Bullseye there's no problem.
With Ubuntu 22.04 LTS I fixed it with a workaround adding these lines to /etc/rc.local file:

sleep 15
sudo service tvheadend restart

Topic can be closed ;-)

For ages I have the same problem on Fedora.
systemctl restart tvheadend fixes the problem after reboot but I never had the time to look into it.
Thought it is related to my unit file or setup.
I'm using the current master branch. I can provide more information if needed.
