Support for Live TV and DVR?

Is there any chance to add to Infuse support to Live TV for use e.g. with HDHomeRun or British or Australian Freeview boxes?
Something similar Plex has but Plex Pass is needed and I really don’t like all the transcoding stuff Plex has.

Adding such thing to Infuse (might be only for Pro users) would be awesome :slight_smile:


20 posts were merged into an existing topic: M3U; Playlist; IPTV Support

That would be a great feature!
I am also interested into this.
Maybe one can get the Live TV stream from an Enigma 2 set-top-box (openATV). So one set-top-box with FBC tuner could handle streams from 8 parallel transponders! Enough for a lot of Infuse users in one household and no need for wiring satellite /antenna cables anymore.


Any news about this?

It would be a great feature to support Live TV from Emby/Plex.
It’s only of the only major feature missing to become the best Emby/Plex player.


Also support live TV support for Emby/Plex

and yet another +1 from this. Has anyone from the dev team responded. Seems like a feature folks would very much enjoy.

Just in case you’re not aware posting +1 does absolutely nothing.

You need to like the first post.

Seems like an odd requirement, I assumed the devs could read. But I went ahead and liked it for good measure. Thanks for the heads up.

You can like the first post only once the way the forum software is written but you could post a thousand plus 1 posts. This keeps it easy to tabulate and not have the devs trying to remember who liked it and who liked it multiple times.

Would love to see this added as well. It’s the only thing I need to return to the official Plex app for.

When will the live feed function be added?

Looking through the forums I see dozens of requests for this but only the most generic, non-committal replies for the Firecore team. Could we get a straight and definitive answer (or have we gotten one and I just missed it?)

Is the implementation of livetv or m3u8 playback on the road map anywhere? Before I commit to another year, I’d like to know if there’s a plan. Maybe when this was 1st request several years ago it was too niche or new, but now it’s not a huge coding challenge and there’s a high level of interest.


This is the roadmap. Beyond that, who knows? But there are a lot of requests out there…

@munpip214 posted the link where you can track what’s on the upcoming features list. You can also note the “tags” on the suggestions threads that give you another indicator of their status.

I moved your post to a currently running suggestion for this feature.

Don’t forget that you need to click the like button on the first post in this thread to show your support for this suggestion! :wink:

So in response to my very direct “Can we get a definitive and specific answer” your response is “No.” Just trying to be clear here as you’ve seemingly gone out of your way to not address it. I work in a related field, I get that internally there are things you know will never be on the road map or are so far out of scope for what the team is trying to do, they are not reasonably going to happen.

All any of us is asking is that you give us a real, transparent update.

It’s not a hard and fast rule but mostly, requests for new features need traction. That’s done by liking the first post of the initial feature suggestion.

7 votes in well over 4 years suggests pretty much nobody else cares for the request.

I’m pretty sure it’s not deliberate but yeah I do wonder (having tracked down that post you screenshot) why this thread hasn’t been merged to that one.

They do try to do this as soon as they see them so they don’t gather likes. Part of the duplicate threads are due to the change in forum provider that happened a few years ago and things are still being found and cleaned up.
