Live TV/streaming not working in v2.2.1?

Post by iansmusical » Wed Feb 19, 2014 10:36 am

Hello Everyone,

Since upgrading to ARGUS TV v2.2.1 I've noticed that Live TV/streaming isn't working anymore. I can still stream a previous recording via VLC ok but not as a Live TV stream.

The following screen shot is taken from my server (XP Pro SP3) and shows the error message I see when attempting to start a Live TV stream. I have tried different versions of VLC but I still see the same error message.

The following screen shot also from my server shows that the ArgusTV.StreamingServer.exe has crashed but I'm not sure if this occurs as a direct result of trying to start Live TV. There are, however, several occurrances of the crash on different dates.

My server is configured to hibernate after a recording has finished and therefore wake up for hibernation to perform a recording. The ARGUS TV services are configured to use an admin account on the server. It has been in this configuration since FTR days. I just upgrade ARGUS TV as new releases appear and so no other changes are made.

One thing I haven't tried yet is downgrade the ARGUS TV version where Live TV was last seen working.

If anyone needs more information then please just ask!!

Thanks,

Ian

Could you please retest this with version 2.2.2? Some fixes have been made to the streaming C++ code, so this problem may also be resolved for you as a result.

Hi dot-i,

Thank you for your reply.

I did wonder about upgrading to v2.2.2 for exactly the reason you gave but wanted to wait just in case anyone advised/asked anything else etc.

Having now upgraded my server to v2.2.2 (keeping existing database) I can sadly confirm that the issues are still present. I get the "Can't play stream..." message when trying to view Live TV. Looking in the Event Viewer I see the following four messages which seem to indicate a problem with the ArgusTV.Streaming.Rtsp.dll. Mine is dated 17/2/2014 (334kBytes in size).

Perhaps it makes sense to double-check your C++ runtimes? The RTSP dll is compiled with Visual Studio 2013.

But these should have been installed during setup.

Hi dot-i,

Here are the C++ runtimes that are installed:

The size of the 2013 one at 0.44Mb seems small compared to the others?

Hello,

Given there have been no more answers I presume that nobody else is having the issue I am having? Can I confirm then that there are other users running v2.2.1 on XP Pro SP3 (in my case with a mobile T5800 CPU) and are able to use the Live TV feature? What's bugging me is that I too could use it prior to upgrading to v2.2.1!

Does anyone know if it's possible, mainly regarding the database, to downgrade the version of ARGUS TV as that seems to be the only option left to me other than a clean install!?

Thanks,

Ian

Live TV is not working for me either.

The stream starts and loads in VLC, but is immediately stopped, and the stream disappears from the Status page.

Directly streaming from the smb share works, so it appears to be connected to the RTSP Server.

Double check the permissions on the live TV share.

I'm also getting these errors in Windows event log, but running on Windows Server 2003.

I've reinstalled the 2013 Visual C++ redist, and the .NET 4 framework.

Live tuning does work from my MediaPortal 1.7 beta client, but it can be unreliable. It works fine when I have the 2.2 Recorder installed and no errors appears i the event log. I also get the errors when I start a live tune from the Argus scheduler console.

Errors in the event log which all occur at the same time stamp when I do a live tune.

If I install Argus 2.2.2 and replace ArgusTV.Streaming.Rtsp.dll with the file from 2.2 then I don't get any errors, and tuning appears to be reliable so far. I'm no coder, but looks like there is a dependency missing in the 2.2.2 DLL?

Happy to test as needed

Thanks!

Mark
