Ok, thanks!
Just asking, why does the Apple TV app requires the in-app purchase and the iOS app doesn't?
What's the reasoning behind the choice, if you don't mind?
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
If you notice closely, tvhclient for iOS started 6 years ago - there was no TvOS at all. Tvhclient was just a client to manage recordings - you couldn't actually watch streams because the phones at the time were not good enough (battery would die quickly). Also VLC was having issues in the App Store and was being pulled out of it
For 2 years, tvheadend project donated money to pay for the Apple developer account - because the project was open source and it was my contributions to the community. This is why iOS version is and will remain free
(Eventually I've added VLC into it once it became available)
TvOS popped up meanwhile but I didn't want to do it because it was too much work. But everyone pushed me to do it and I've spent 7 months polishing the thing on my spare time. After much consideration my plan was to have the tvOS version paid so I could pay the apple license for years to come to have the iOS version free - and also to pay for dev hardware if there was enough left
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
I thought the tvOS version would have a small amount of people - I mean if you can't pay for it that also means you probably also have an rpi with kodi.. if you can pay for an Apple TV then probably you can pay for the tvOS version and help everyone else
I should decrease the price though.. but I never did because it feels unfair for the rest of the people that already paid :/
Anyway, I'm not making any money out of the app, it covers for the App Store license and sometimes some hardware (I got an Apple TV 4K with it lol)
And btw, donations to PayPal were very far and spread - but they didn't even reach 40£ per year, which is half of the Apple developer license. However Apple TV versions picked up the slack very quickly. I've never asked for tvheadend to help with this

@eutampieri
That makes a lot of sense! " if you can pay for an Apple TV then probably you can pay for the tvOS version and help everyone else" was what I thought initially but I wondered wether there was something else
And I know that getting apps to the store is not cheap. Also, the tvheadend loan was the missing piece in my "knowledge". Thank you for spending time and developing this app, and sorry if I have been unkind to you.
eutampieri
@eutampieri
I've bought he app and it's really good!
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
Not at all, if you need any help let me know
Another way to help is beta testing. Beta testers have the full app because it's all unlocked for testing...
However I haven't done any new developments lately and I really need to... my dev environment does not help :(

@eutampieri
If i had more free time i could contribute… (and also if i knew how to make tvOS apps…)
eutampieri
@eutampieri
Two questions:
1) is it normal that when i click channels on the top shelf the stream doesn't always open?
2) how much would a Swift HTSP implementation be useful?
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
2) 0 utility, unless you mean htsp for streaming - and that's a VLC issue and not a tvhclient issue. Make VLC for iOS work with htsp and I'll gladly take it
1) it should work, if it doesn't then I would need to debug it. Because you say it sometimes does not work, it really means we need to check it further - debug it the problem is on VLC or tvheadend
eutampieri
@eutampieri
2) If I understand correctly, VLCKit is a LibVLC wrapper, so it should be implemented there
1) So I should open an issue, right? I'll test the app some more...
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
1) could be, but I would require a replicable setup and figure out what's happening
2) yes

Hi Luis, how is your Telestar twin working? Have you managed to put it on final place or still in the lab?
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
Nope, corona - everyone is locked down :p
I do have one question... epg over the air does not work well at all - is that a thing with satip?
martyzeq
@martyzeq
must be some misconfiguration, it is working on my side - I can post you some screenshots of my setting if interested
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
Yeah let's talk in pvt so we don't bother everyone

Hi Luis!
first of all, thank you for your work, it's great!
I just have a problem with playing HD streams on my Apple TV 4th gen. They're all choppy. If i run same channel on iPad, it's fluent, without any problems. Actually same results is with VLC app (stream works on iPad, but ATV can't handle it for some reasons).
Do you have an idea, why this happen?
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
I’m assuming that’s a VLC problem if it happens on both vls and tvhclient.
what’s your stream details? is there anything special that’s bugging vlc?
try removing the deinterlace, normally that takes huge amounts of cpu power depending on the filter used

hello @zipleen
I just bought TVHClient for Apple TV and i would like to ask a few questions about it
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
ok, then ask them :P
pirolito
@pirolito
hi
you there?
i'm using tvheadend to parse my Enigma2 list as IPTV and access from Apple TV.
i want to ask you 2 things:
1 - Do you know how to show picons in TVHClient?
2 - How to load EPG from IPTV list to Apple TV?
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
Just configure tvheadend correctly and it will work
pirolito
@pirolito
picons already solved it
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
Picons I'm not too sure if they work, I think people said they worked. I just set my own pictures
pirolito
@pirolito
but not the EPG
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
Epg you should use xmltv and setup the correct sources
pirolito
@pirolito
do you know any tutorial to hep setup that
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
As soon as you see the epg in tvheadend UI, it will show up in tvhclient
pirolito
@pirolito
i don't understand how to setup the grabbers
Luis Fernandes
@zipleen
Xmltv? It's... a pain lol
pirolito
@pirolito
are you portuguese?
