Well, I guess it is because you can make that server from CE device itself, through TVHeadend… With full package like sharing same transponder with multiple clients etc.
I know, that there are SAT>IP option is in TVH also, but as all my clients using Kodi and I have only Terestrial, its intuitive use CE TVH server+clients for it. But anyone with lets say VLC could use IP streams nativelly also…
Right, this is the current consumption of the SAT>IP server. But then you do not need anymore buying a DVB receiver hardware or a device what is capable to handle a DVB receiver. You also can use the Amazon Firestick when you want. Every client what is able to run Kodi can be used. And I think the money you save with a cheaper hardware can be invested in power consumption.
Also bigger houses do use normaly a multi switch what also do have current consumtion.
This would be replaced by the SAT>IP server as it can handle quattro/quad LNB direct.
I believe that any LNB based tuner is going to come out as having the same energy usage - since the main power draw is simply used in powering the LNB itself. You can if you want turn a SAT > IP tuner off to save energy when not in use but if you are like me Ieave my Kodi box on all of the time so that it can do its various jobs in down time.
It was mostly me and afl1 who worked on passthrough.
I don’t have a way of testing AAC, but DTS, Dolby and all of the advanced HD formats are working.
I believe there’s still a problem with getting multichannel LPCM working.
All you need is one central TVheadend server running on the zgemma, everything else is a TVheadend client which gets its signal from the zgemma TVheadend server.
Still think that the SAT > IP is a better option.
Well we as Team CoreELEC are against Piracy. And yeah we use Netflix and I don’t think anyone can be cheap about this. Still I don’t want to constrain anyone. I warn you to spread this around here. We are talking about illegal activity almost everywhere on this planet! We do not tolerate it here because Kodi is more than illegal stuff.
