After years of not using them, recently I was asked to add the cable company's music channels to our house lineup. I added them in SchedulesDirect and in myth setup. The cable company provides 50 music channels on Clear QAM, all on channel 77. I can view the individual channels from my Windows machine using VLC and HDHomerun software. In myth setup, I scanned channel 77 and found 50 results with the right channel numbers. I pasted in the xmltvid of each channel in MythWeb and it looked good there.

I can't navigate to the channels in LiveTV because I get a "Can't get the first 2048 bytes" error or something close to that. That might be a red herring, though, because many of my channels throw that error in LiveTV but record just fine. LiveTV isn't important to me right now. Unlike the other channel;s which error in LiveTV but record fine, the music channels record 0-byte files.

I just turned on LiveTV and tried to navigate to channel 901. The mythfrontend log looks like this:

As I mentioned before, the "Wrong PMT; pmt->pn" errors aren't necessarily the problem. I see those on other channels in LiveTV while I'm still able to record programs on those channels.

I can't find any other obvious errors in the logs and don't know how to proceed from here. Any ideas?

One more data point. Here's what the backend looks like when I attempt to record. Nothing obvious there to me:

Doubt that you will be able to get this to work.
Quote:
https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/2706
Music channels are not supported for anything other than Standards compliant DVB streams in MythTV.

That being said, I do know that if you have a cable box, an Hauppauge 1212 or 1445 HD-PVR it is possible to tune, display and record those channels.
You might also be able to get this to work across firewire but I have never done it.

Thanks for the reply. Guess nothing's changed in the last 8 years. What exactly does "Music channels are not supported for anything other than Standards compliant DVB streams in MythTV" mean? I saw it was copied from the original bug, but I don't know what they were saying.

Not being an expert on this but standards define the way things work. ie: wireless internet standards are 802.11a, 802.11b/g/n and 802.11ac, etc

So that means that only "DVB standard compliant streams" are supported in mythtv. Variants of those streams are not.

If you want a headache you can look here.

Since we know it's not supported in myth, the ability to do it would make a nice plugin. I had read somewhere that these Music Channels are playable using VLC,

I did a little looking around and found this alternative.

I had them working, but not directly with Myth. What I did was I created web page with some java code to move around with remote and php to get the channels from mysql db, and vlc plug-in. Of 'course I used background from the theme to nicely match myth menu. I placed it on my backend (where I run apache as well) and on the frontend I would load it from myth menu with firefox in full screen mode with separate profile. This setup worked quite nice till TWC decided to encrypt 99% of those channels, so in a sense my problem is gone...

Sounds like an interesting solution as your channels are in clear QAM.

According to this ticket the problem was fixed in MythTV version .22. https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/8096
Although it sounds like the ticket starter still can't "watch" live but can record.

Ok guys here ya go. This will give you some additional information about VLC and another "Even" better option.

Bottom line is that you can just bring up your browser and go to
http://www.musicchoice.com/ and enter your cable information and then select the channel you want.

Once your registered you can go to directly to a Music Channel using just a url.
ie: http://www.musicchoice.com/#channel/17/mc-classical-masterpieces

Happy listening.

Thanks for the follow-ups. In our case, one of the goals was to reduce the amount of music streaming we do since the cable company is already providing us with so many music channels and our internet usage seems to be over or near max every month. The WAF will not support learning another method to watch these channels. It's basically either "do it like the rest of the TV channels" or "not at all." :wink:

From the trac entries posted and what I've observed, it seems like we could get it to record if we could just convince MythTV to open up the recorder even if the cable company were sending a still picture signal (the picture is not still, FWIW). It's frustrating to be able to see the signal and have myth insist nothing's there.

Anyway, thanks again for the replies.

So is the goal for your family to just turn on that stream when they want to listen to music? VLC can play and probably reconrd the stream but can't tune the channel. MythTv can tune the channel but not record the stream. every solution I can think of is too complicated.

That pretty much leaves you with using a Hauppauge 1212 or 1445 HD-PVR and a cable box.

This has been a pet peeve of the wife for sometime. MythTv sometimes works live if you start a stream pause it for a minute or so, and then unpause the stream. My system is a composite backend/frontend system, but I have a satellite kodi frontend upstairs. With a silicon dust kodi addon, I am able to direct access the hdhr and hdhr3 tuners. The tuners there themselves have no issues direct streaming the music choice channels on kodi on raspberry pi ii+.
