Sadly not. Any of it was the issues for the not working livetv.
IP Adress is from my local network and stays the same everytime.
The thing is i can watch all recordings. The only thing that
isnt working is just livetv. I switch to livetv in the menu and
i can see the osd for a really short time. Than it fall back to
the menu with prefbuffer failes (or something like that) requester.
And the local IP Adress is the same like for Master Backend IP.
The IPs of both the remote fe and the master backend stay the same
everytime, cause i dont use dhcp here.
I really wonder, whats going wrong here. It worked before i deceide
to checkout a peek into the work of the current master.
I really have no clue, how to solve it and i wonder if im really the
only one with that problem.
Regards and thanks again,
