LOCAST Issues

I am getting no SOUND on these 2 channels.

7007 Antenna TV
7017 My TV

After identifying these I decided to start checking others and then started getting the "Stream not Live" after I closed and re-opened the Channels App on my Apple TV. On my second Apple TV pointing to a second DVR it is working except for the 2 channels with no sound.

Sounds like my experience with Locast over the weekend. I'm not sure if they simply had server issues, or there was some other problem. Also, the streams that would not play in Channels, would through the Locast app. (I didn't think to try their website, though.)

I'm not sure that Locast is up to the demand of providing high-quality streams of local broadcasts, even with their large backers.

My DVR is now working again but the 2 channels with no SOUND are still without SOUND.

Can you check these channels? Are you getting sound?

I tested this in my iMac Safari browser connected to the DVR and I get sound but it does not sync with the picture. And the 7007 picture was jumping around. The picture on 7017 was not jumping around but still audio was not in sync.

How are you adding Locast to the DVR? I don't see it in the list of available TV Everywhere sources.

Thanks

It is not a TVE Source. It is separate at the bottom. Similar as HDHomeRun Devices.

Maybe you are not on the latest pre-release.

I am on 2019.10.06.2324

Audio sync is completely off on locast.org web player for several SF channels. Seems like the feeds are bad. You can contact their support to let them know and also tell them about the interlacing problems.

The "Stream not live" may be due to locast backend problems, or maybe they have some sort of stream limit and your account got locked when you were channel surfing.

Got it working. Had to update my install, donate to Locast, redownload/update guide and stop/start server and now all good.

Thanks!!

I finally got around to opening a ticket with LOCAST and they replied within 30 minutes that they RESET those channels and I should be good. Or might have to login again. Anyway, did not need to login and they are fixed.
