rtp stream to VLC

Post by PdeG »

Hi guys .. a problem

Model: HDHR4-2DT Firmware: 20200907

Am trying to send a rtp stream to VLC on my desktop...

This is the command I am using on the tuner

hdhomerun_config.exe" 1230E06E set /tuner1/target rtp://10.250.18.26:59001 no_clear

and in the VLC player on my desktop using this IP, I am opening the stream with

rtp://@0.0.0.0:59001

Problem ..I have to start VLC and then run the command on the tuner.. if I close vlc and then restart it , I cannot cannot connect to the stream, without restarting the stream on the tuner :cry:

According to the doc, I presumed the no_clear option on the command was supposed to stop this from happening..

Suggestions..

Hi,

The no_clear option needs to be part of the target parameter by adding quotes:

hdhomerun_config.exe 1230E06E set /tuner1/target "rtp://10.250.18.26:59001 no_clear"

Bingo... works perfectly. :)

Tx for the quick reply. That is a relief.

Just checking the doc again. Snip below..

Mmm.... no mention of it in there.. Perhaps an update ??

Tx again..

Quotes are required on the hdhomerun_config command line but are not required in the boot script on a TECH device, which is what the doc you're apparently looking at is for.
