View Full Version : Simple (but tricky) question - Multiple LiveTV sessions

January 29th, 2009, 09:51 AM

I have a very basic question that I fail to find a good answer on.

Can I watch two different LiveTV programs from two different MythTV-frontends at the same time, connected to the same MythTV-backend?

* I have a WinNova T-500 card with dual DVB-T configured and working.
* I run a stand-alone MythTV backend (Myhtbuntu) with no frontend
* I can watch one(1) LiveTV channel from a MythTV frontend, while recording another channel (recording is initiated through MythWeb)

But when connecting two(2) different frontend (from 2 different machines), I just can to get two different LiveTV sessions (I can only see the SAME channel on both frontends).

So, is this a limitation to the MythTV protocol or should it work?

If so, how can I control what interface (DVB1 or DVB2) a certain frontend utilize?

This should work if it's set up correctly. While watching liveTV on frontend 2, go into the menu (default 'm'), and select 'switch input'.
