TV Everywhere Beta Experiences


#642

Still repros for me for BBC America and on AMC. (I don't have Sundance or IFC on my cable plan)


#643

I can confirm that I'm seeing the same issues with AMC, BBCA, IFC, SUNDANCE & WETV. They all start playing for about 7-8 seconds then stop.


#644

My BBCA test recording failed, it only plays back a couple seconds of video. I’ll email the logs.


#645

I also had a failure with BBCA recordings. It plays for about 6 to 10 seconds and then freezes. Here is the log output: (2019.07.06.0628)

Did a quick 1 min, 15 sec recording of BBCA which is failing here for me.
The actual recording is 8.4 secs long.
emailed logs including file-1488 recording log.

#647

The bug affecting AMC has been fixed in the latest build.


#648

Any update on getting The Weather Channel back? Or adding broadcast channels. Having troubles with Fox and Nbc in Area with my Antenna. Both offer live streams


#649

The AMC bug does seem to be squashed. Thanks!


#650

So what is it?
Was it removed from TVE until they get their stream setup

Or did they go subscription based (and what do you mean, you need to subscribe to a service vs. free?)

It's in my Xfinity subscription but errors out with login not supported trying to watch the TVE channel


#651

I can confirm that my BBCA recording and live viewing has worked without issue after upgrading to the latest Beta. thanks for the quick update!


#652

More or less, yes? There is currently no way to stream The Weather Channel online right now using a TVEverywhere login. The only way to stream it I'm aware of is cable provider-specific websites like Xfinity Stream.

It's worth noting that even via TVEverywhere (when it was working), you can't get the full Weather Channel experience. I think the only way to get locally inserted content (current conditions and temperature, and Local On The 8's) is via a cable TV feed. (This is also why The Weather Channel is the only non-broadcast channel to still be in MPEG-2 on Comcast... its feed is locally originated, so it still uses an MPEG-2 encoder on the physical premises of your cable provider, instead of Comcast's centralized MPEG-4 feeds like other channels).


#653

The Weather channel is Working on Fitzy tv without a login.


#654

First off I wanted to say that this feature feels like magic and I can't believe how seamlessly it integrates into the DVR/Apps.

I was trying to read through the thread and figure out how to add Fox Sports Kansas City and Fox Sports Midwest to my channel lineup, sorry if I missed it. Both channels work for me in the Fox Sports Go app, but I didn't see them anywhere in Channels. Thanks!


#655

Assuming you've enabled it per

Then posts 380, 416 and 487 in this thread


#656

Thanks, good info I didn't know about


#657

IIRC, If a program set to record is available earlier on TVE it will record from TVE, even when TVE is the lowest priority source. I prefer to record from TVE only when my other tuners are unavailable. Is there a way to force this?


#658

I was under the impression that the order of the services on the DVR dictated the preference of recordings, be that TVE, cable or OTA devices. I know since the clients can have a different order than the server this can lead to some confusion, but I thought those preferences were still obeyed. Are you seeing something different?


#659

Comskip fails on TVE movie recordings from SyFy channel. Also MCEBuddy fails when trying to remux the video. I'm on the latest Beta build 2019.07.09.0315.

I've sent the log file to [email protected]

#660

You can disable the east coast feeds so it doesn't try to record the earlier airings.


#662

What does MCEBuddy fail with? We can look at improving the interaction. Can you send logs of the MCEBuddy run to [email protected]?
