(In Testflight 3.6.1) TV Mosaic/ DVBLink PVR

Post by Montoya » 01 Mar 2018, 12:05

DVBLogic has just released the first beta's of the new DVBLink Server and its called TVMosaic.
https://forum.tv-mosaic.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=15

There are some changes in the TVMosaic compared to DVBLink server, so that software that uses the DVBLink API, needs to be modified:
Note for products, which use DVBLink Remote API to talk to DVBLink Server. There is a change to the DVBLink Remote API: dvblink_channel_id is now a String instead of Long. Please adjust it in your products. Changing it to string is backward compatible with DVBLink.
Can you guys make a copy of the DVBLink PVR and call it TVMosaic PVR and incorparate the above change (which ONLY applies for the TVMosaic Server and NOT for the DVBLink server) so we can test the TVMosaic server in Testflight of MrMC ?

Because this way, existing DVBLink users in MrMC won't be affected by this change.
Thanks !!

If channel id change to string is backward compatible, why don’t we just change dvblink addon to it and it can be used on both?

Because I don't have the technical knowledge what those changes will do for MrMC users with connections to the existing DVBLink server. That's why I suggested a test TVMosaic PVR, which when implemented in Testflight, can also be tested by DVBLink server users. If some unforeseen things happen, it won't affect their live install of the MrMC DVBLink PVR.

DVBLogic says it is backward compatible, but is it really so ?

I already tested the TVMosaic server with Kodi 17.6 and 18.0-ALPHA1 Git:20180228-d56be60aa6 and some things are not 100% OK, like timeshift and logo import from TVMosaic server. Because of that I suspect some things that still need to be fixed by DVBLogic.

If no problems are reported by users of the test TVMosaic PVR with DVBLink server, than you can implement those changes in the DVBLink PVR in MrMC safely and only have one PVR in MrMC for DVBLink server and TVMosaic server.

Slightly OT but I read the link above announcing the mosaic beta and I'm left wondering why on earth I'd abandon my current, paid, dvblink suite only to pay *again* to get what I need from mosaic? What I need, xmltv, isn't in the free version.

[offtopic}
Been testing TVMosaic since first beta and there is still a lot to do by DVBLogic to make TVMosaic mature enough to convince existing DVBLink users who don't have Android TV, to upgrade.

TVMosaic has strong points for Android TV (TVMosaic Live) and IPTV, that DVBLink doesn't have, like extended m3u support. Automatic tag mapping from m3u in TVMosaic is now done for:

- tvg-logo (channel logo's)
- tvg-id (EPG)
- group-title (Favorite lists)

So combined with a suiting xmltv listing where channel-id''s are matching with tvg-id's in m3u, all IPTV channels are set up in TVMosaic instantly with channel logo's, EPG and favorite lists, with no manual configuration at all.

But as long as no features are implemented that I suggested there, I haven't made up my mind about the benefits TVMosaic brings to me (No Android TV in my household). But so far it's a rock solid server package, when I tested 8 simultaneous encrypted DVB-C streams to my projector screen at once (just like a TV control room), with a quad DVB-C network tuner, to test the resources used by TV Mosaic server.

But anyway, people aren't forced to upgrade, so it still remains a free choice.

Hi,

I agree with amet why not do dvblink_channel_id to a String if it is the easiest solution. TvMosaic is now launched and I have installed both versions side by side (DVBLink port 8100, TVMosaic port 9270) on my TV server for evaluation and both systems work with same addon for Kodi 17.6 which must mean that the addon is backward compatible.

Best regards
Jan

Of course, the DVBLink/TVMosaic Kodi PVR addon for Krypton and Leia, maintained by DVBLogic, DVBLogic already stated with first beta release of TVMosaic, that the Kodi addon was already compatible to both systems.

So, anyone that can share the access to the servers with us for testing? If so, contact us on support@mrmc.tv
