I’m having trouble populating the channel groups in the Live TV section of Kodi.
I have TVHeadEnd 4.3-1897~g6b8f014c3 running on a separate Debian server.
I have loaded an M3U file in to TVHeadEnd as an IPTV Source. This has created the relevant Channel Tags / Channel Groups on the TVHeadEnd server. I have then ordered the Channel Tags on the server so they appear in my chosen order.
I have CoreELEC installed to an SD Card on my Minix Neo U9-h
It loads the channel groups through from the server correctly and lists them in the correct order, however the groups do not contain any channels. The only way that I am able to access my channels is by scrolling through the large list of the All Channels group in Kodi; not ideal.
I also have various Amazon Fire TV devices with Kodi installed on them and these all work correctly, the Channel Groups show in the correct order and they each contain the correct TV Channels. I have even booted my Minix in to it’s Android OS and installed Kodi on there. This too behaves correctly as the Amazon Fire TV devices do.
There is no doubt that the problem here lies somewhere with CoreELEC. Can anyone help?
I have tried both the latest 18.104.22.168 release of CoreELEC and currently I am running the “nightly_20200921” build but it still has the problem
The TVHeadEnd HTSP Client is version 22.214.171.124
Incidentally I came across an old post on here describing the same problem: Channels not showing up under groups
However, the advice to give the “All Channels” group a sort index of 0 is incorrect as there isn’t actually an “All Channels” group / tag on the TVHeadEnd server side.
Thanks for reading, sorry for the long post. Fingers crossed we can get this sorted
