    Do you mean for OpenPLI? ...because those PMT descriptors make no difference for TV Server, except when scanning.
    For TV Server timeshifting/recording the block is that the "transport scrambling control" field for the video and audio packets is always 0b11.

    If @mm1352000 said that CA descriptors in PMT has no effect on timeshifting/recording, then problem is surely in "transport scrambling control" bits, which have to be set to 0b00 - OpenPLI bug.

    looks like I am out of luck :(

    Here is what openpli is saying to the issue:
    So in other words I would have to buy a different receiver o_O

    Maaaaaybe some of you guys would be indeed be so kind to include the "feature" to just ignore the "transport scrambling control". I understand that it is not ideal from a design point of view but this is my only hope to keep using mp :love: instead of having to switch to the ugly set top box interface :sick:

    I could also write a tutorial on how to use mediaportal in combination with an enigma2 stb (vu+,dreambox, etc). Maybe this would be of some use for others unless I am the only one who is interested in this :D
    Let me know if there is interest ... evenhough it's just working with fta channels atm unfortunately (see above :p)

    Cheers
    and thanks for your support so far anyways (y)

    Hi, i too use a VU+ connected to my MP and viewing chanels with IPTV and i don't have this problem. After scanning my M3U file, I set the flag "ischannelfree" in the MySQL database.

    Hope that can help ..

    Cheers, and sorry for my poor english

    thank you ... I am not using a VU+ but a Venton set top box. So it seems to be a hardware issue indeed :(

    ok ... I would like to keep the thread updated for what I have done to "hack" the issue just in case anyone ever experiences something similar.

    Thanks to @rsenden and his VODServer (https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/vodserver-watch-internet-streams-as-tv-channels.121732/) I am feeding MP TVServer with a demuxed and remuxed stream. I have changed the "vod-services-common.xml" as follows:

    Code (Text):
    1. <entry key="ffmpegOutputParams" value="-vcodec copy -acodec copy -f mpegts -"/>
    FFmpeg just passes the stream onto MP's IPTV Card. But by doing so the "transport scrambling control" header is gone :)

    I have yet to test it for a longer timeframe but so far it seems to be working pretty good.

    I have samo config and problems like you.
    Does the VODServer work for you?
    Could you please give me an example of the m3u you use for channel scan in tv Server?

    Was not able to get it work with VODserver.
    So did the dirty way and modified tswriter like mm135200 described on page 1...
    Works.
