as far as i know npvr used http streaming. so livetv via dsplayer should be possible. maybe you have a formatting failure in your filterconfig and/or mediasconfig? try to play a simple mkv video via dspalyer+lav and look if this work. if you have no success with livetv post your log-files or the relevant part of the log file (after starting a livetv channel).

Hi Ed -

I have DS working just fine for regular files like mkv. I am only having problems with getting DS to work with NPVR. You were right - i must have had a problem somewhere previously, a reverted changes and and reapplied. Here is what I have:

    <rule filetypes="ts|m2ts|bdmv|mp4|m4v|avi|mpg|mpeg|mkv">
        <source filter="lavfsplitter" />
        <splitter filter="lavf_splitter" />
        <video filter="lavvideodec" />
        <audio filter="lavaudiodec" />
        <extra filter="ffdraw" />
    <rule protocols="http|https">
        <source filter="urlsource" />
        <splitter filter="lavf_splitter" />
        <video filter="lavvideodec" />
        <audio filter="lavaudiodec" />
    <!-- New rule for preferred streaming source filter -->  
    <rule url="true" filetypes=".*">
        <source filter="lavfsplitter" />

  <rules action="prepend">
    <rule protocols="daap|rtv|rtsp|rtmp|rtmpe|rtsp|mms|pvr" player="DVDPlayer"/>
    <rule filetypes="IFO|DVD" player="DVDPlayer"/>

the problem is that it seems like NPVR may not be using HTTP or HTTPS. Even with changes, it's still playing with XBMC DVD player, not DS. I tested the new HTTP rule by trying to play a youtube trailer. It tried to use DS, but failed to playback with an error about the file stream. At least we know the config works properly by trying to DS, but not sure if DS is having issues with YouTube, or something else... Here is a log excerpt:

Is anyone able to play trailers on youtube using DS? Ed does your personal config work for Yourtube with DS?

The second question now is what type of streaming does NPVR use?
