An unplayable channel on LG TV HDHR app

Post by sdust »

A channel can not be played on LG HDHR app. Same channel plays fine on Mac.

EDIT: I just realized the channel is in your backyard: 60-4 from Sutro tower PJK604

Let me know what you find ;)

Ready when you are ...

Can somebody tell me what options do I need to use to produce recording?

I'd first check if the channel you have problem with is DRM protected or not if you are using Prime tuner.

That's not it. debug=true or something like this is missing.

CONNECT 4K so no worries.

That channel looks to be in San Francisco. We are in Arizona.

To make a 30s capture: http://hdhomerun.local:5004/auto/v60.4?duration=30

Edit - fixed URL

Just duration=, no debug=?

URL needs port 5004 ;)

There is no PCR PID specified in the stream.

Can you please do a full mux capture so I can check the raw broadcast: http://10813750.local:5004/auto/ch551000000?duration=30

Ok, the video track has PCR data however the PMT in the original broadcast doesn't indicate that the PCR is on the video PID. This is a fault in the broadcast.

Figure some players will play the channel ok, so will fail to play.

I am guessing this is something you guys want to handle? It is a bigger flop than an incorrect aspect ratio.
