Hi All,

I've got the issue, Kodi won't play DVB-T2 channels, I start such a channel the buffering window opens, but stuck at 0%

My System:
TVH 4.0.9-16 via Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with an August T230

Kodi 16.1:
To exclude hardware issues, running on a Win 7 in the same network with the linux server

The DV-T2 streams are playable, for example VLC is playing very well....
Kodi gave back following log:

All hints are welcome, hope you can help me....
Thanks,

If you make a recording of the HEVC DVB-T2 stream and try playing it as a file in VLC and Kodi - does it play in both?

Does your version of Kodi definitely replay HEVC content?
Sorry for late answer,
in week I'm very busy!

I've solved this issue by installing the unstable TVH version for full DVB-T2 support!

Thanks anyway,
