Well, I definitively uninstalled it now. There is no support and serious showstopper bugs don't get looked at for many months, so it is due to whatever reason dead in my point of view.
Don't get me wrong I have been having DVBLink for the longest time, and always upgraded (mainly to support devs) as well. I had a bad feeling when it changed to TVMosaic, and now we reached this point, they probably have good reasons for them not to look at this software, but of course to us, the users that is not too nice.
However for those running Windows and are fit, there is a pretty good and neat and open source solution !
I managed to get this setup to run ON Windows 10:
- At least Windows 10 Creators Update
- Install Windows 10 WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux, i used Ubuntu 18.04 flavour as I am familiar with this)
- Configured all ports in Windows Firewall
- Compiled and installed Installed TV Headend
- Used WINDOWS COMPILED (I compiled using MinGW, to get all good codecs enabled) FFMPEG to transcode (using a Widows Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000) for transcoding (!)
- Excluded critical Directories of WSL from Windows Defender Realtime protection(increases speed and is not necessary anyway for those files)
- Enjoy complete TVHeadend on Windows.
It works pretty well on decent hardware here (i7 2600k)
It was quite a bit of effort to get this to run, but it was very well worth the effort. Now I have the best of both worlds together in one machine and it performs very well.
Currently you can not run the SAT>IP server well, as the upnp announcements would not work, as you share the hosts IP address and i think the broadcasts announcements do not work, but it will work if you can enter an ip address in your client. However for me as I have DVB-T, DVB-C and DVB-S i use minisatip as a DVB>IP Server as it seems TV Headend has issues with other than DVB-S with SAT>IP.
Just thought I'll share this success with you guys looking for ways to have a working solution under windows, for me it started as I didn't want to run a second graphics card just for the transcoding in a small linux PC.
p.s. : TVH supports HDHomerun (as I saw that in the thread) and decryption also works, just have to configure the CA to use OSCAM DVBAPI)
