I've seen the same behavior with live tv as well as recorded tv. In addition, I'm using comskip ui mod with auto skipping and it sometimes does some weird thing where instead of jumping forward it jumps backwards into the middle of the block that was just playing.

Overall the mini client is the best thing to happen to my TV in a long long while. Thanks for your work on this!

It was an imported MP4 with no comskip cuts.

I wonder if this is a just file naming issue. Unix OSes are case sensitive. So, "FILE.mp4" is not the same as "file.mp4". On Windows "FILE", "File", "FiLe" are all the same. So I've seen problems like this where code will use the name of the base file to resolve another file and it "works on windows but on on linux" and usually it's because the paired file (usally manually created) is in a different case than the main file.

I noticed some quirkiness on a TV recording I made that I converted to MPEG4 using SageTV Server a while back. I could skip forward and at some point it would jump back to the beginning or some point much earlier.

I've also noticed an issue with the time bar indicating the wrong position as well with live TV (HDHR/MPEG2-OpenDCT-remux) - possibly only on the FireTV 4K (not sure if it happens on the Shield) also, skipping forward or back sometimes goes to the wrong position, but overall the miniclient is working very well.

It might be along those lines, but I typically copy the exact file name minus the extension and copy that into the file name of the SRT file. However the videos I'm thinking of have extremely long names so I'll shorten them and see if it makes a difference.

You need to stop the SageTV service, then stop the OpenDCT service before changing the file - then re-start OpenDCT, then the SageTV service.

I bought a new HDHR3 tuner from Ebay recently (since it appears Silicondust is discontinuing them) and thought I'd give OpenDCT another try with just that tuner. When perusing my opendct.properties file, I discovered that I had previously neglected to set all my tuners to opendct.consumer.FFmpegTransSageTVConsumerImpl. So, I fixed that, tested it out, and...

I can now use Exoplayer with this new MiniClient. Yay!

I am seeing this ... the Mini Client not remembering the resume point. Some times it starts from the beginning and I have to FF ... and sometimes it just marks the show as watched.

Josh I am sure the transcoding you are working on will address this.

Ditto. Since switching to Exoplayer, I am experiencing a lot of Comskip problems (SageTV jumps backwards instead of skipping marked commercials) as well as FF and RW weirdness. Such problems go away when I return to IJK by turning off Exoplayer. I am not sure if this is related to just Exoplayer or has something to do with the Exoplayer-Comskip combination.

In case it matters, I am running SageTV server and OpenDCT as Docker containers on an x86 QNAP NAS drive with the MiniClient Fork on a Fire TV Stick 4K.

This is my same setup as well though running on Open Media Vault distro,

Status Update

Hi all,

I will look into the seeking/timebar issues after I am completed with the Transcoding changes I am working on. I am personally really excited for the transcoder changes, so I would really like to at a minimum get the fixed transcoding working before jumping back into the seeking/timebar.

FYI, I will be posting more specific updates and details on my Patreon page to my supporters more regularly than the SageTV forums. If you are interested in the most up to date info please consider becoming a supporter. I posted some early pictures of the new settings screens with some more details of my progress today.

Josh

Thanks for your continued work on this, Josh.

Never heard of Patreon before, but got all signed up, secure and painless.

If Opendct can transcode on the fly is it possible to create a profile to just remux to MKV on the fly... I did some testing converting to MKV and they play great on my FireTV no problem skipping.

FYI.... Sage can now transcode to 720/1080 into a MKV container on the fly. Well maybe not now, but very shortly. Or I should say it is doing it on my home server

If you have not been following the transcoding thread you may want to pop your head in there. I am going to be releasing an updated Sage.jar and Andriod Client to enable HD resolution fixed transcoding.

I am testing on my production system now. Assuming testing goes well I am probably going to release to beta testing next week.

Talking HD Placeshifting Beta

Hi All,

I have completed development and unit testing of HD Placeshifting.

I am ready to share for Beta testing. I am going to give the Patreon supporters a first whack at testing it. Depending on the feedback I will most likely open up the testing to everyone sometime next week.

There are additional details on the new features on my Patreon blog. Let me know if you guys have any question/comments.


https://www.patreon.com/jvl711

Beta Release

Thanks,
Josh

Thank you so much for keeping things going. As a late convert to Sage just a few years ago, it's nice that at least a few people are still making improvements. I signed up as a supporter a few days ago and I'm very happy to pay for your time as Sage is probably my most-used appliance these days!

Regarding sideloading the app, wasn't there a phone app or quick way to do this that someone mentioned a while back?

You are welcome! And thank you for your support. Let me know what you think and if you see any issues.

Here are two links that users posted for the Firetv

Hi. What would be the process to have the Miniclient be made available to Smart TV manufacturers, or do you know of a way to side-load the current Android release to those devices, i.e. Samsung, Vizio, etc. That would be slick, if even possible.

I do not believe that the Android TV app is compatible in any way. It looks like Vizio and Samsung are leaning towards HTML5 based apps. The SageTV community would need to develop a completely different app.

The best option right now is to use FireTV 4K stick. There may be a few other options out there as well, but this is one of the least expensive options. The pro to Android apps is that they are written in the native language that SageTV is written in. This allows for a lot of code sharing. The Android client is based off of the Placeshifter client.

Ah, ok, good info, thanks. That doesnít make it sound at all likely. I have a Firestick, but donít use it much. Time to focus on it more
