Stuttering of recorded tvheadend HEVC after skipping


Hello everyone,

i found a lot of topics regarding to stuttering issues with the vero4k and 4k+ but i was not shure if any of this topics already would help in my specific problem.

I have a vero4k with latest stable release of OSMC. TVheadend is running on a different raspi with DVB-T2 (german edition). Recordings are save to a 3rd NAS storage. TVheadend is integrated to OSMC via the Addon.

Via tvheadend i have some recordings to watch shows later. Playing back this records later from the beginnen is not a problem. Everything is fine. But if i skip through the recorded timeline forward or backward i get really bad video stuttering while sound is fine all the time. I made a video snapshot of it:

Maybe someone of you would like to reproduce. You can test this with my recording:

Best regards,


Does this only happen with HEVC? I think Germany switched to it for live broadcasts recently



I can’t compare with H.264 recordings. I’m using tvheadend only with DVB-T2 and HEVC.

But playback of x265 content from mkv files without the combination with tvheadend normaly is not a problem.


Ok — can you try change recordings to MKV and see if the issue still occurs?


Good idea.
Unhappily this didn’t helped.


Ok, if you copy a MKV to local storage like USB does it help?

Can you post a debug log?


Hello Sam,

sorry for the delay.
Today i made some new recordings with mkv and tested some different locations to play back the file.

There is no difference between playing the recorded mkv file via TV-Plugin, from a samba share or completly from the local storage.

Best regards,


Please upload the logs via My OSMC





Any news regarding to this?


I don’t have a solution for this yet but it is still on the list. I have some ideas and would like to resolve this promptly.
