    Summary:
    Exposing an .m3u playlist with all the Tv channels
    Area:
    MyTV
    Description:
    IMHO (and referring to my specific needs) the most lacking feature of MP is the possibility to view Tv on Smart Tvs.
    The only thing I've found is a plugin for Plex (which has apps for many smart tvs), but far from being useable.
    I was asking myself if it would be possible to expose an .m3u playlist with a link to all the MP channels (i.e. http://ip:port/channel1.ts). Even without a web server we could use hfs (asking permission to the author) pointing to the MP timeshifting and recording directory.
    Every other software I know does this (dvbviewer, tvheadend, progdvb, etc.).
    Once we have a working playlist we could use an iptv software on the tv.
    What do you think?
    Bye,

    Not something that's of interest to me, but KODI can interface with MediaPortal TV server, and I believe it's available on some smart tvs, so that might be an option.

    Yes, but only on Android TVs.
    Samsung, Lg and others can't use it.

    Hi.
    With the next mayor release MP2 will have a DLNA media server plugin included. This media server also provides TV to every DLNA compatible device. Most Smart TV, Tablet or Smartphone then can make use of the TV functionality and the full media library of MP2 . But I can't give you an exact time frame for the next mayor release, it's ready when it's ready. Most likely it will be autumn 2016 or Winter 2016/17 or so (only a guess)...

    Thank you Lehmden.
    I was following MP2/DLNA development, but I thought it was stalled.
    Good news
    Thank you

    Hi.
    It is not stalled, but needs some other Technics to be finished first. Maybe you have heard something about the "MIA Rework"... for MP2 speaking this words is like saying "Voldemort" ;):D . That's why it isn't released already. But "the thing you must not name" ;) finally is very close to be ready as internal test versions are running. Still a way to go (e.G. the media import last until eternity atm), but we are closer than ever to finish it..

    Very good!
    I think Smart TV interface is an unvaluable option for a TV Server today.
    Thank you
