what is a client, what a server?

Post by jms » Thu Apr 18, 2019 3:28 pm

On my synology nas I have tvmosaic running, I'm sure this is a server. On linux, I have tvmosaic running, this is a client, but also a server? Or is there a separate server for linux? How can I access a TV stick (292e) on my local linux desktop?

Where is the TV stick, on your NAS or Linux desktop ?

The server client confusion on this forum, but also on many other forums, we see many many times from new users.
This is all the fault of DVBLogic, not releasing a "client only" version of TVMosaic (like we also had with DVBLink), which many users want.

Story short, the current build of TVMosaic can both act as a server and client.
The system you want to use as your TVMosaic server, at that system, you setup the device for your channels in TVMosaic and in your case, have the TV stick connected to that system.

When you run the client, the client should see that server automatically and if not, you have to setup the IP of the server in the client manually in top bar here:

Currently I have tvmosaic in my NAS as the server and a client in linux.
That means that I can use the tv-stick in my linux desktop and the linux version of tvmosaic can access it? How? It always wants the ip address of a server.
Oh, I just found a /usr/local/bin/tvmosaic/tvmosaic_server. But it does not work: it does not find the libraries in /usr/local/bin/tvmosaic/lib

I have to do export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/bin/tvmosaic/lib or use the start.sh

Maybe a stupid question, but have you clicked the little triangle next to the IP address shown in the TVMosaic program on your Linux desktop ?
In there, you have an option to select a manual IP (your Linux desktop IP) and after that is done, you can setup your TV stick in TVMosaic program on your Linux desktop.

Maybe a stupid question, but have you read what I wrote? The local server was not running and therefore the local connection did not work.
I was not aware that there is a local server.

I can't smell from here, that you screwed up your Linux install, when a successful install, should have run TVMosaic server daemon automatically, on system boot of your Linux desktop :idea:

I was not aware that there is a server and that it should be running. And I am not sure if the intention is that it is running by default.
