Plex Tvheadend

Plex: Plex, Inc: Closed source cross-platform media center with proprietary streaming functionality to numerous devices. Started out as a popular fork of the Kodi/XBMC media center software. PowerUp Suite Zodiac Interactive Cablevision (Altice ) Charter Communications; Rogers. There is TVPlexend (- I've got it installed on my Plex server and it works 'OK'. You can view live channels (which include now/next data) and also view recordings. 3:31 Windows mit Kodi konfigurieren Kodi: Steam: Plex: Jun 12, 2020 NZBGet is the perfect alternative to SABnzbd if you want something more robust and lightweight than Sabnzbd. It can seem a little intimidating at first but it is quite easy to setup for basic downloading. I feed my IPTV Service (1 stream - 7 USD a month) managed by TvHeadend and then passed through to Plex via tvhProxy (a small docker container that emulates a HD Homerun tuner). The IPTV provider gives a URL /.m3u file for your channels and a URL to Download an XML file for the Channel Guide data.

Hi Forum
I started my first plex server (after many different systems through time)
Plex Server - Version - Ubuntu18.04
I have 2 TVheadend servers ( one on Ubuntu16.04 one on 18.04)
All in the same subnet

I have installed the plugins LiveTVH on the PLex server and tvhProxy on each TVHeadend Server - I can see the tvhProxy is running on each TVH server.

When I connect to the server - I cannot see any channel or scanning for channels.
In Danish it means there was a problem when downloading channels

In Plex media Server log I’m getting this:

On the tvHeadend Server I’m finding this in my syslog:

I have the TVHeadned servers running - watching TV through KODI - so the TVHeadend server are working - But really strange that I cannot make the connection and se the different channels from the TVHeadend server

This section gives a high-level overview of the steps needed to get Tvheadendup and running. For more detailed information, please consult the rest ofthis guide - much of it is arranged in the same order as the tabs on theTvheadend interface so you know where to look.

You can also consult the in-application help text, which mirrors this guideto a very great extent.

Tvheadend web interface: Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> TV Adapters

On this tab, you’ll see a tree structure, with the Linux device list at thetop level (e.g. /dev/dvb/adapter0)

Individual tuners are then the next level down (e.g. DiBcom 7000PC : DVB-T #0)

Click on each tuner that you want Tvheadend to use, and ensure “Enabled”is checked in the ‘Parameters’ list

If anything is obviously wrong at this point, you probably have adriver/firmware error which you’ll need to resolve before going any further.

Tvheadend web interface: Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Networks

Create a network of the appropriate type here. You can have multiple networksof the same type as necessary, e.g. to have two DVB-T networks defined,one with HD muxes, one without.

The creation process allows you to select from a series of pre-defined muxlists for common DVB sources. These are maintained outside of Tvheadend, andare downloaded from linuxtv- but they do go out of date as broadcasters move services around and nationalauthorities change entire pieces of spectrum. As such, you should try thepre-defined values, but you may need to add muxes manually.

Critical Configuration Items

Plex Tvheadend

Critical configuration items at this stage: <........>


Tvheadend web interface: Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> TV Adapters

Associate each of your tuners with the correct network through Parameters -> Basic Settings.

This can be as simple or as complex as necessary. You may simply have, forexample, a single DVB-S2 network defined and then associate this with allDVB-S2 tuners. Or, you might have multiple networks defined - differentsatellites, different encoding. So, as further examples, you might defineand then associate an HD DVB-T2 (e.g. H.264) network with HD tuners, whilehaving a separate SD network associated with an independent SD (e.g. MPEG-2)tuner.

At this point, your tuners now know what networks to use: one network canappear on multiple tuners (many-to-one), and one tuner can have multiplenetworks.

Tvheadend web interface: Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Muxes

Ideally, this is where you’ll see a list of the pre-populated muxes as createdwhen you set up your initial network. However, should there be any issues,this is where you can manually add missing muxes. You only really need toworry about this if the pre-defined list didn’t work (e.g. because ofout-of-date data as broadcasters re-arrange their services or because automaticdetection hasn’t successfully found all the muxes over time.

If you do need to add something manually, you’ll need to search the Internetfor details of the appropriate transmitter and settings: satellites tend notto change much and are universal over a large area, but terrestrial muxesare typically very localised and you’ll need to know which specific transmitteryou’re listening to.

Good sources of transmitter/mux information include:

  • KingofSat for all European satellite information

  • for UK DVB-T transmitters

  • Interactive EU DVB-T map for primarilycentral and northern Europe

other major sources....?

You can also use dvbscan toforce a scan and effectively ask your tuner what it can see.

Tvheadend web interface: Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Services

This is where the services will appear as your tuners tune to the muxes basedon the network you told them to look on. Again, remember what’s happening: Tvheadend is telling your tuner hardware (via the drivers) to sequentiallytune to each mux it knows about, and then see what ‘programmes’ it can seeon that mux, each of which is identified by a series of unique identifiersthat describe the audio stream(s), the video stream(s), the subtitle stream(s)and language(s), and so on.

Tvhproxy Plex

(For the technically-minded, these unique identifiers - the elementary streams- are referred to as ‘packet identifiers’ or ‘PIDs’).

To force a scan …

Once scanning for services is complete, you need to map the services to channels so your client can actually request them (i.e. so you can watchor record). You can do this in two places:

Tvheadend web interface: Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Services

Plex Tvheadend Client

Press the “Map All” button. Note the resultant dialog box that allows youto exclude some services from the mapping: this is covered in more detaillater in this guide.

Tvheadend web interface: Configuration -> Channel/EPG -> Channels

Press the “Map Services” button. Again, you can exclude services as youcan for ‘Map All’, above.

Any explanation on how a channel can map to multiple services <......>


Anything about using bouquets

That’s it - you’re done. You should now have a working basic Tvheadendinstallation with channels mapped and ready for use!
