HLS streaming not working with some Premium TV channels


#1

Any idea what is going on with HLS streaming? For the past few weeks (since HGTV has come back) I have not been able to watch AMC on my Windows PC (using HLS on Chrome). Watching it from the Android app works fine.

This is the error I see in the Channels log file. It's easy to reproduce.

2019/03/11 17:00:48 [HLS] Starting transcoder for channel 1405 from 192.168.1.147 (encoder=remux, resolution=1080, deinterlacer= , bitrate=10000)
2019/03/11 17:00:59 [DVR] Cancelling stream 1070F8AE ch1405 after 3s read timeout
2019/03/11 17:01:02 [HLS] Stopping transcoder session ch1405-dANY-ip192.168.1.147 @ 11.946566s

SD has acknowledged there are issues with AMC: https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=71013&start=15

Try with the latest DVR pre-release

Thanks! That seems to have fixed the issue!
