In some cases, the development might be more effective, if the problematic live streams can be used directly through internet. It may apply for EPG, but also for other real-time data processing.
SAT>IP Server - Minisatip¶
Setup minisatip https://github.com/catalinii/minisatip and forward only the RTSP port (usually TCP port 554) outside. We can use the embedded MPEG-TS data in the RTSP session, so this only port forwarding is sufficient. Contact the developer through PM to obtain the IP address which will be used for the debugging.
Example - run on foreground, RTSP on TCP port 5544, enable only /dev/dvb/adapter2:
minisatip -f -y 5544 -e 2
To be able to use minisatip server in the tvheadend, you need to pass the satip_xml parameter like this:
./build.linux/tvheadend --satip_xml http://IP_OF_THE_MINISATIP_SERVER:8080/desc.xml
SAT>IP Server - Tvheadend¶
You can also enable the SAT>IP server directly in the tvheadend. But (to not stack the possible problems), the minisatip SAT>IP server is preferred.
