Yea it looks like interest in this died down a lot. Though thats probably due to lack of updates. Did you have any requests for the app?

I might start my golang rewrite this weekend.

The mobile ui needs a update. It doesnt really fit in with the ios 8 style.

Would there be any way to make the EPG Guide in XBMC/Kodi pull in channel logos and the multicolored guide from Windows Media Center? I use My Channel Logos for the icons. http://www.mychannellogos.com/

Also is there any way to pull up the guide in XBMC/Kodi on a tablet or mobile phone without hitting enter? Maybe a 2 or 3 finger press?

Any chance to bring in Recorded TV for streaming?

Thanks!

Welcome Back mcheng! I still run your software daily to stream to our mobile devices and share m38u links with friends for big events. I tried ServerWMC but it's way too slow across the WAN. I would be happy to help test any further revisions!

Hey mcheng! Welcome back.
Long time user, but I've always had one issue that I was hoping you could help me out with. I've tried every version of tvserver I could find on this thread but none has solved my problem.

Issue: After a period of time tvserver thinks all tuners are being used when they actually aren't. (infinitv 4)

The only way I've found to resolve this is to post the restart url in a browser. That, though, is locked down to localhost, so when I'm trying to use it on the WAN i have to vnc into my ceton box and restart tvserver locally. Then I'm able to stream again no problem.

Any ideas how to get around this? I suppose I could run a scheduled task to reset it every night, but I'm not sure how long that would even keep the tuners from being locked up.

Thanks!

I still use the program quite often as well. Potential enhancements:

-Direct streaming over LAN to iOS devices.
-Ability to see guide data (instead of just channel list) in iOS.
-Support for VLC2.2.0 (maybe the latest version has support but I couldn't get it to work and had to reinstall v2.04)

I'm a long time user. Just recently upgraded from remoteceton to tvserver. It seems like droid.html is broke in this version as the loading screen never seems to go away. Could you fix this?

Also, I enjoyed the ability to pick the tuner number I wanted to use in the Web interface.

Thanks for making this all possible!

Hello All, I had to rebuild my PC and am trying to get this setup again but am having problems. I am getting a VLC error "VLC media player could not start. Either the command line options were invalid or no plugins were found."
I am using vlc 2.1.0 (64 bit) and tvserver v0.6.4. I verified the location is set correct for VLC, which is C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe

The tvserver app says "Failed to start VLC process"

I also tried 32-bit VLC 2.1.0 and am getting similar responses. The tvserver app says the same but I am not getting the vlc popup saying "VLC media player could not start".

***UPDATE***
...and now it is working. Not exactly sure what I did to fix it but it is now working.

It would be crazy if you could combine the now official HDHomerun Kodi app UI with this WAN streaming addon

Yeah, that would be Utopian.
