Dear list,


I am trying to set up IPTV for German public stations. They provide the
multicast addresses [1]. I have to use the Hansenet ones. They also
provide playlists for VLC and MPlayer [2]. I used VLC to watch some
channels and that worked quite OK, if the modem has synced correctly(?),
i. e. has a good connection. With VLC it stuttered every 5 seconds with
some channels.

I followed [3] and the README.Debian of the vdr-plugin-iptv package from
[4]. I came up with the following.

$ cat /etc/vdr/channels.conf
[…]
:@1000 New channels
Das-Erste;IPTV:10:IPTV|S0P0|EXT|vlc2iptv|1:P:0:2:3:0:0:1:0:0:0

$ cat /etc/vdr/plugins/iptv/vlcinput/Das-Erste.conf 
URL="rtp://233.51.128.19:1234"
VPID=2
APID=3
SPID=4

I start VDR with the following command.

$ sudo vdr -P iptv -P xineliboutput -l3

Then I get a black screen with the information/sender name IPTV. After
some more seconds I get a NO STREAM/SIGNAL screen. You can find the
output written to syslog at the end of this message.

I use the following versions of the sofware.

$ vdr --version
vdr (1.6.0-2/1.6.0) - The Video Disk Recorder
iptv (0.2.5) - Experience the IPTV
xineliboutput (1.0.90-cvs) - X11/xine-lib output plugin

Can you give me a hint on what I made wrong or what might be the
problem. Maybe I messed up some syntax in the configurations files.


Thanks a lot,

Paul
