    Live TV Freeze

    I'm having a freezing problem with the Android web app, using a TV box.
    The test was made playing live TV; NFL channel.

    The first test was done over the internet; ran for about 8 minutes and froze.
    (first set of log files - 0907)

    The second test was done over the LAN; went about 11 minutes before freeze.
    (second set of log files - 0921)

    If I select a recorded show that seems to work OK.

    For what it's worth, I have never had success watching live TV with my PC LAN based NPVR clients.
    I have always had a freezing problem, since day-1. We normally ony watch recorded shows.
    I was hoping that the web app might work better.

    This is one of the funnier log messages I have seen (from web.log)

    Code:
    2018-05-19 09:20:15.331	[DEBUG][26]	This shouldn't happen...
    2018-05-19 09:20:15.331	[DEBUG][26]	end
    2018-05-19 09:20:15.331	[DEBUG][26]	Sending m3u8:

    In my defense, I thought 'nah, that'll never happen...but maybe I should put a message there just in case...."

    Leave it to me to find a way to break it

    So, what is it that I broke?

    To be honest, I'm not sure. How is your disk space on the C: drive at the time? There is some additional temp files created when streaming to the Android client, and I'm wondering if it ran out of space.

    did a LAN test again this morning.
    this time it ran for more than 1:30 hours before I stopped it.

    tried the same test over the internet and it froze within 6 minutes.
    C: drive free space was 423 GB.
    that's a shame; the internet hookup is the one that would be most helpful.

    it looks like the same error in the logfile.

    FYI, I've added some log messages around this for the next release, which should tell me why this happened. I'm hoping to get that release out this weekend,

    I'm away from home in hotel room.
    Had live TV going for about 25 minutes and then it froze.
    For a while I thought it was going to keep going.
