IPTV Recorder: "Invalid header" and "MythSingleDownload"

Postby ninjaef » Fri Apr 14, 2017 10:01 pm

got these errors when scanning IPTV recorder input for a remote m3u file:-
Code: Select all
2017-04-14 22:41:04.211775 E  IPTVChanFetch: Invalid header in channel list line
                        EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="BBC1.uk" tvg-name="BBC One" tvg-logo="" group-title="UK Television",BBC One
2017-04-14 22:41:05.120363 I  MythSingleDownload: Reached specified max file size (10000 bytes)
...
<repeated>
...

this error is repeated for every single channel provided in the remote m3u file

Code: Select all
my m3u looks like this:-
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="BBC1.uk" tvg-name="BBC One" tvg-logo="" group-title="UK Television",BBC One
http://<host>:<port>/live/<login>/<password>/<filename>.ts
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="BBC1.uk" tvg-name="BBC One HD" tvg-logo="https://sykstreams.tk/SykStreams/images/TV/BBC%201%20CI.png" group-title="UK Television",BBC One HD
http://<host>:<port>/live/<login>/<password>/<filename>.ts
...
...

( i have replaced the URL with <host> <port> <login> <password> !! )

any ideas why Im getting the error ; I cant see this MythSingleDownload setting anywhere?

and linked pages

still no joy

what on earth is myth expecting in an m3u file and how do I 'scan' it for channels

It's a holiday weekend you'll just have to be patient :)

Does the m3u file work in another program like vlc?

Shame that the OP had to leave in such a hurry. But just in case others happen across this thread in their troubleshooting:
- The MythSingleDownload was an information message, I think it just tests a small part (10000 bytes) of each stream.
- The one m3u code snippet OP included appeared to be missing a valid channel number (perhaps something like tvg-num="xxx") which I suspect resulted in the 'invalid header' message. Its not clear from the thread what other m3u formats were tried.
