Simple MP2 Profile for Set-Top-Boxes

Post by tomtom76 » Sun Mar 15, 2015 12:20 am

Hello!
I am working for a Company and we make Installations of IPTV Boxes in Austria.
We need a good solution for a Media Server working with IPTV Boxes.

The Following Boxes are in Use:
TLA-5720SWFX/PVR (Manfuacturer ADB)
TLA-3801W (ADB)

No HD required.
The best solution would be a renderer profile to convert all to simple MPEG2 (Standard PAL) with Stereo Audio.

Is there a way to adress this with UniversalMediaServer?
I think a new profile should be enough?

Should just require a profile assuming the IPTV box supports DLNA.

Do you have a technical sheet on what features and formats supports? It could be useful to determine whether it could work or not.

That kind of hardware tends to work only with a files o streams on a very strict format, it means you must use very specific options when you transcode files, because the hardware is too limited to handle certain files or streams.

On my work i create files to Motorola Set-top boxes, and in that particular case, we were unable to create that kind of files using open source tools, so the company purchase a carbon coder solution to continue with this project.

Good luck!

Hi tomtom76, yes it would be easy with a new profile. Something like this:

Code: Select all

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Profile for ADB IPTV boxes
# See DefaultRenderer.conf for descriptions of all the available options.
#

RendererName = ADB IPTV box

UserAgentSearch = YOURUSERAGENT

CustomFFmpegOptions = -target pal-dvd
CustomMencoderOptions = -ofps 25

thank you for the answer.
it seems that my boxes have some problem with AC3 Audio.
is there a way to transcode all audio to MP3?
