If you did add them, then I am out of ideas. I wonder if there is a dependency to the new format detector plugin. I think they both use the same new version of ffmpeg. I am on Linux so I need to wait for the Linux version of the transcoder plugin before I install the transcoder or format detector plug. I tried installing the latter only, and saw results that forced me to uninstall it.
I have this in my properties file but don't understand how the transcoder selects the proper entry:

I don't think these have anything to do with what you are looking for 'on the fly live transcoding'.

I believe these are only used to transcode a file after it has finished recording.

You set these up when you create a favorite.

Correct that is to convert files but you have to do it manually not on the fly.

You can use one of these to convert your file within SageTV to MKV ... I recommend very fast to test.

Thanks for the suggestion! I gave it a try, but the resulting conversion is unplayable on Sage, or either Windows media players. It does play with VLC. The original HVEC file plays on everything except Sage.

I am getting very puzzled!

Sounds like you have a problem with SageTV or your HD300.

That's certainly possible, but I have tested playback using 2 HD300s. The HVEC files play fine on a Windows Sage Client that has the proper codec installed, but it seems that the Windows client operates VERY differently. The manual conversion files just produce the spinning circle of death, requiring the Sage client to be killed in Windows.

The manual conversion file tests in Windows were performed by downloading the converted files to my laptop and playing them straight out of Windows. The transcoder seems to be the only part of Sage that I am using for this experiment.

You do have the latest SageTV transcoder plugin for your system .. ?

I believe that I'm using the latest transcoder plugin, version 1.0.5.

That is what I'm seeking. Does anyone have one that works?

My HD300 triggers the transcoding on the server as well for H.265's, but I'm not sure what decides what conversion to use. Mine are for some reason always targeted for postage stamp size resolution because the server has decided there isn't enough bandwidth, even on Ethernet. It definitely feels like something is misconfigured.

I think that we need the wisdom of jvl711 to move forward.

Make sure you have te latest SageTVTranscoder plugin ... also you might want to try the very fast preset.... also there should be a sagetvtranscoder log in the SageTV directory.

PS ... As long as you see converting even though it stays at 0% it is converting and be patient.

Just an FYI that I am working on adding Hardware encoding/decoding support to the SageTVTranscoder. I have a build that is working with NVENC Nvidia hardware encoding support in the works as we speak. This will probably be a Patreon only release for a while as I work thru the issues. If you interested in supporting this development you can support it on Patreon.

Thanks,
Josh

Not sure if theres a thread already started for this but my 64bit Sage /Win10 system does not convert files -- just a failure error. Not sure if it ever did since I cant recall the last time I tried - is there a quick fix or daignostic? thanks!

There is a logfile that is generated in the root of the SageTV directory SageTVTranscoder.log. Did you look at the note on the first post of thread? The out of the box transcoding profiles are not all compatible with this plugin.

Possible config for H265 -> H264 ?

So a lot of videos are now distributed in H265 format, but they choke on my HD300s. Is there a profile entry to allow the transcoder to turn them into H264 streams on the fly?

h.265 is not supported on the HD300s at all, so it will always attempt to transcode. I am not sure what if any options there are for changing that. Someone else would need to chime in there. I have not used a HD300 in a few years. I am not sure how much flexibility there is there.

Thanks! I'm hoping that someone has a line to add to the profile. I'm failing completely on that task.

It fails immediately as soon as it's run, so I am having no difficulty with my patience. The installed version is 1.0.5, SageTVTranscoder (FFmpeg) Windows x64.
