As previously reported, the playback of a tvheadend stream, either DVB-S or IPTV ‘stutters’ on initial playback of the ‘channel’. I describe it as “play-pause-play-pause-play”. Once past this initial ‘stutter’ the channel plays without problem.
The debug log below should include a reboot, with initial pvr channel guide loading, followed by a selection of playback of both DVB-S and IPTV channels.
The problem is reproducible.
Device = Raspberry Pi B+
Peripherals = None (tvheadend is remote server as is media storage - nfs mount, over wired Ethernet).
Problem first noted on initial release of OSMC running Kodi 18.
Happy to provide any further details to help solve this problem.
