Hello Cata

Could be possible an DLNA or Upnp integration inside the minisatip?
It is more like an enhacement request.

the minimum from the spec is in
```
-p url: specify playlist url using X_SATIPM3U header
eg: -p http://192.168.2.3:8080/playlist
- this will add X_SATIPM3U tag into the satip description xml
```
but only satip clients may look for this

DLNA as Inverto 400 or Schwaiger SatIP equippment have.

@catalinii
I will manage today to provide you access to the Inverto or Schwaiger devices and firmware to have a look abd to be able to explain exactly which DLNA implementation i would like as enhancement to see inside the minisatip app.

I think @perexg knows exactly how the DLNA works inside the Inverto IDL400 firmware and how is DLNA wise the channels playlist is exposed to the network.

I only know that Inverto uses a patched minidlna server to export right URLs through DLNA. Ive not had a time to dig into it more, but I think that they convert .m3u file as resources for minidlna.

Once I looked into the inverto changes of minidlna. The diff can be found here:

https://github.com/timehlers/minidlna/r ... upnp.patch

The full sources of that version, with patch applied can be found here:

https://github.com/timehlers/minidlna

But: In the end minidlna just mediate between the upnp TV and the satip-Server instance. So the satip-Server needs to be able to send an demuxed TV stream to the TV. invertos server is capable of that, but I think minisatip is not?

Am I right?

Best

why not adopt the lua upnp from DD http://download.digital-devices.de/down ... net.source can be run independent from minisatip

Bubble Upnp Server is already running on different platforms , it is handy and very easy to use install and configure.
Id say all is needed is something similar to dvbviewer solution to make minisatip capable to send the channels via bubble upnp to the tv or boxes , vlc or any DLNA compliant device from the network

I did not study too much, but had some tries with minisatip and serviio.

Except the http part of the dlna protocol, which is not that much work, the problem I had was that my TV was not capable of displaying 1080p 60hz, and my odroid XU (at that time) was not handling the software transcoding...
In my opinion the http link to a channel should be OK for a tv to open...
With RS everythign is fine (but RS is running on a i7)...

Thanks

For example i have DVBLink server which is capable to pick up playlist with channels from Inverto IDL400 or from Schwaiger device but is unable to find or pick up generated playlist from minisatip.
But this already is a different enhancement request which probably will be made later after upnp part is solved if can be added / solved
