IPTV streaming to Panasonic TX 58EX780E via Serviio

Hello,
I use DLNA to transmit IPTV to a Panasonic TV. Currently, 4K channels are transmitted in h265 video and DD + foni. I am using Generic DLNA profile. The picture is OK even with HDR but no sound. Panasonic does not support DD +. Can anything be done about it?

Re: Panasonic TX 58EX780E

You don't want to make any changes to the generic profile. I would first test some of the other TV profiles and see if they resolve your audio. If you find one that works, and it doesn't break something else, then just stick with that. If you can't find one that works, then you'll need to create a user profile.

I just searched the current Profiles.xml file, and found the following profiles that transcode EAC3 (DD+) to either straight DD or PCM:

LG TV / player (only H.264 video and AVI/MKV/FLV/WTV containers)
Sony Bravia TV (2013/14) (same four containers, but MKV only captures MPEG2 video)
Sony BDP-Sx70/SMP-N100 (2010) (MKV container and all video codecs)
WDTV Live (all containers and video codecs: this is probably your best bet for an existing profile)
Sharp Aquos (mp4 container)
Sony Bravia TV (2010) (H.264 video, mp4 and 3gp containers)
Panasonic BD player (MPEG2 video in any container, H.264 in MKV)
Roku Media Player (not a good fit: will transcode far more than your TV requires)
Telenet Yelo TV (all containers and video codecs, however it transcodes video when your TV wouldn't require it)

Re: Panasonic TX 58EX780E

I used the WDTV profile, on the 4k channel (h265, DD +) the picture and sound are stuttering. Maybe you can add an audio codec to the DLNA profile (works perfectly but without DD +), or create a new profile?

Re: Panasonic TX 58EX780E

I just pulled the specs for your TV, and it shows it's a European model. It supports H.265, but it doesn't show any support for AC3. In the US AC3 is the default audio used for broadcast TV, but it appears that Europe uses something different. But since the WDTV profile is using AC3 as the transcoded audio, that should be fine.

The WDTV profile is transcoding H.265, and your TV doesn't require it. It's stuttering because your Serviio computer can't transcode it fast enough. Since everything was playing fine with the generic profile, just no audio, we can build a simple user profile for you. Create a file in the Serviio/config folder with the name user-profiles.xml. Paste the following code within that file:

  Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Profiles version="1.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://www.serviio.org/xsd/profiles/v/1.10/Profiles.xsd">
<Profile id="Pano_TX" name="Panasonic TV (TX-series)" extendsProfileId="1">
       
      <H264LevelCheck>FILE_ATTRIBUTES</H264LevelCheck>
      <Transcoding>
         <!-- Remux video stream, transcode audio only -->
         <Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetACodec="ac3" >
             <Matches container="*"  aCodec="eac3"/>
         </Video>
      </Transcoding>
   
   </Profile>

</Profiles>


After you've saved the file, restart Serviio using the Stop Server/Start Server button in the console at the bottom of the status page. Then refresh your browser so you see the new profile in the dropdown list (it's named "Panasonic TV (TX-series)" ). Apply that profile and try again. This will leave everything alone except transcode DD+ to DD.

I didn't test this code on my server, so if Serviio won't restart after you've added the file just remove the file and restart again. Then let me know and I'll see if I can figure out if I made an error somewhere.

Nah, I just tested it and it works on mine :)

Unfortunately, it does not open either image or sound (RTL UHD, Canal + 4k)

Re: Panasonic TX 58EX780E

Huh, I can't explain that. This does nothing except mux the video into a TS container and transcode the DD+ audio to DD. If the file doesn't have DD+, it won't touch it. I guess I'd have to see exactly what format your incoming IPTV media is in. Perhaps it needs to be within an OnlineTranscoding segment, instead of Video. I have zero experience with online re-transmission, so I could be way off base here. Hopefully someone with more experience with this can assist. I'll edit the title of your thread to see if we can get some additional help.

Re: IPTV streaming to Panasonic TX 58EX780E via Serviio

Exactly how are you accessing this media? Do you have an online source configured? can you provide me with the link, so I can research what format the media contains?

Sorry, that means nothing to me. How is Serviio configured to connect to the IP stream?

Re: IPTV streaming to Panasonic TX 58EX780E via Serviio

After installing serviio, I added playlist plugin, in the online source library I added files (http: // - SW-ufile: /// C: /Users/IPTV/SPORT.m3u-SW-tVIDEO) source type (network resources). The file name with the channel names is displayed on the TV). In the DLNA profile, everything works except the channels in h265 and DD + audio (other channels in h265 with AAC audio work)

Re: IPTV streaming to Panasonic TX 58EX780E via Serviio

OK, without knowing what's in your local playlist file, I still can't evaluate what media is streaming. but based on your comment about AAC, perhaps you should try making a change in the profile I offered. Change targetACodec="ac3" to targetACodec="aac" and try it again.

I changed to aac and nothing helped, no video and sound. I cannot give you the login and password for the IPTV service. I can say that this is a standard m3u file.

Re: IPTV streaming to Panasonic TX 58EX780E via Serviio

Understood. Don't want to do anything illegal. I'm just puzzled why what I offered isn't playing. If it plays with the generic profile, the only thing my code does is transcode the audio if it's EAC3. I wouldn't think using a different target container would help, as MPEG2VIDEO most likely wouldn't support H.265.

But we haven't tried one other thing, and that's placing the lines within the <OnlineTranscoding> tag. Can't say if it will make any difference, but it's worth a try. I also removed the h264levelcheck, as it's in the generic section anyway.

  Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Profiles version="1.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://www.serviio.org/xsd/profiles/v/1.10/Profiles.xsd">
<Profile id="Pano_TX" name="Panasonic TV (TX-series)" extendsProfileId="1">
      <OnlineTranscoding>
         <!-- Remux video stream, transcode audio only -->
         <Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetACodec="aac" >
             <Matches container="*"  aCodec="eac3"/>
         </Video>
      </OnlineTranscoding>
   
   </Profile>

Nothing helped. I think the WDTV profile is doing best, you can modify it. Plays vod 4k files well, only no subtitles available. Only online TV stutters.
