    I have a decent IPTV sub (curently wildside but have used several others to try and solve the issue) which I use mainly for F1 races but I'm really struggling to record more than 20-30mins of quali/race shows (I rarely get chance to watch live).
    I've tried nextpvr (win), VLC (win), IPTV extreme (Android), ProgTV (android) and more, but none seem to reliably record the streams. The slightest network glitch causes recording to stop and even with a rock solid connection and stream I have yet to have a recording complete.
    I have a 32Mbit fibre connection and have also tried via 4g (7-10Mbit)

    Any suggestions? Cheers

    Do you have a multi room sub as I think you need this for recording.

    I do have multiroom, but it isn't needed for recording unless I'm also watching another channel, which I never do :)

    You don’t need multi to record the channel your watching or watching a different channel not on iptv
    So cable or sat you can watch them


    The problem with iptv is, if you get one freeze the recording stop and won’t start up again

    I think that's the issue.
    Any software out there that can handle that (Windows or android)? Or maybe an IPTV box that dodoesn cost the earth (otherwise I may aswell sub to sky :haha: )
