Loss of connection to TvH server

Added by Tim Bremer about 1 month ago

By the end of April I installed 4.3-1251~gf4ebe33 which worked fine for several weeks.
Suddenly, at the end of May Kodi could not connect to TvH any longer: It got connected, a second later the connection got interrupted.
This behaviour --connected, not connected-- continued all the time.

From one day to the next two clients running Windows 8.1 pro and Kodi Krypton 17.6 seemed to be corrupted.
VLC Player on the clients ran without problems, as well as TVHClient on an android device.

I installed Kodi Lea 18 alpha - same problems
I disabled the over-the-air-EIT DVB Grabber - problems still exist
I restored a backup of Kodi, created in January - problem still exist
I restored a backup, created End of April, of the whole NAS running TvH - problem still exist

This problem lasted for several days, it was not possible to watch Live-TV at all.
Then, yesterday and today, everything is running smoothly as before.... As if nothing had ever happened!

What the hell happened ?

The problem occured between end of May and approx. 07th of June, receiving mainly Central Europe TV stations (Germany).
Anyone else in this region observed this problem?

RE: Loss of connection to TvH server - Added by kosacik 1 about 1 month ago

i got here via google "GetEPGForChannel - addon returned an error: server error", i am running few clients at the same time (TVH 4.3-997), all of them RPI3 with libreelec 8.2.2, or higher, and after few hours, some streams are interrupted. When i checked log on kodi clients, found these rows.
In my case, errors You described only lead to stop stream:

Like i said, two clients stopped working, another three keep on going, so i think it is client based issue. Any help apreciated :)
Running tv´s on kodi, seems to be for me a neverending fight :)
