What ffmpeg?

Hi, what ffmpeg can I use to record live TV in pvr?

I have a recording log on windows 10 x64
Win. log. https://paste.kodi.tv/afeganenic

And the same addon and the same list (exactly the same) only a different ffmpeg and I get errors (no recordings)

CoreELEC Log. https://paste.kodi.tv/isabayojay

I tried various options https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/
and official ffmpeg for CoreELEC but to no avail

thanks for any help.

I don’t think, ffmpeg is your problem here. It seems your network isn’t properly configured.
Especially your DNS configuration seems to be broken or your router/firewall is blocking your CE box.

Thanks, I’ll check it out

The same network and windows work and coreelec doesn’t? dns i have the same

(I will look for information on this topic)

That “my.tv.com” part confuses me. Is this a valid hostname? Doesn’t resolve here, too.

I changed the name intentionally, anyway the address was blocked, (but only recording, television works properly) it doesn’t happen on windows

maybe my switch is misconfigured

Could you try to connect to your CE box with ssh and ping the original hostname? Does the same ping command work on Windows?


Hmmm…looks good to me in both cases.
If you didn’t have a typo in the hostname of your iptv config, it should work.
On the other hand, I’m not an iptv expert. Maybe someone with better iptv experience is able to help you.

with time, a solution will be found, this is not a matter of first importance

I was just curious why it works properly on one device and doesn’t work on the other (I immediately thought of ffmpeg)


I had a problem with CoreELEC and IPTV Recorder.
The problem was that I had not installed “PVR IPTV Simple Client” in CoreELEC (as I thought); I had installed “PVR IPTV Archive Client”.

Now I have deleted “PVR IPTV Archive Client” and installed “PVR IPTV Simple Client” and IPTV Recorder is working fine.


Kind regards


this add-on works fine with pvr.archive
but you have to rebuild the pvr iptv recorder add-on
because it is designed for pvr.simple
here some time ago I added a rebuilt addon for pvr.archive but cleared github and is no longer available.


if you want I can look into it and try to convert it for pvr.archive

Thanks, @Salesi

At this moment probably it’s not necessary, but in the future, if “pvr.archive” is the substitute of “pvr.simple” (I don’t know if this is the situation), probably it will be interesting.

Kind regards

Returning to the topic “What ffmpeg?”
does pvr.archive have any internal server built-in?
I checked windows, libreelc, linux and everything works while coreelec does not (I will try the @roisiano suggestion and disable pvr.archive) because the recorder I use has a built-in server and uses port 3000
but i don’t know if it will help …
