IPTV

Is anyone successfully using IPTV with Sage in the UK? IPTV looks like being a total washout with Sage after trying a couple of providers, looking for one that works.

Fellow UK SageTV user michaeldjcox wrote something called SageTV encoder that helped on this front but I don't know if it still works. In addition OpenDCT may help on this front.

Thanks, the encoder is windows only as far as I can tell. And problems with OpenDCT is what initiated this thread...

I have not had a working solution yet. tried tvheadend but gave up as i feel they was too many bits to fail + I do not have enough knowlege to make it work.

I use tvHeadend as the base for all my tuners, and just serve them to Sage via OpenDCT, so I was already quite familiar. But however you set them up, via tvHeadend or direct, OpenDCT/Sage seems to choke on the stream data most of the time, whether set up directly to the stream or via tvHeadend. As the dev doesn't seem to have the time to support OpenDCT at the moment, it's tough coming up with solutions.

I have found one though. Another forum user sent me his setup, which was on PC, and I saw that he used a local PC install of ffmpeg in OpenDCT as streaming_executable to redirect the data to OpenDCT/Sage. It's more difficult to do this in the docker (for me), but I worked out how to get tvHe to use a different stream profile for IPTV, and so transcode the streams itself. All seems to be working now, we'll see how it goes.

But you're right, it is a complicated solution. Having said that, the
tvtuner>tvHe>OpenDCT>SageTv
solution has been rock-solid for many months.
