LiveTV - Limited streams/tuners available

Hi there,

I just noticed that when the simultaneous streams are limited the user doesn't have the chance to see when all the streams are actually locked by others, all he sees is the standard error message  "No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details."

Two improvements:

  1. I find the current error message not very intuitiv, why not say that no tuner is available or that all tuners are currently in use?
  2. Even better though would be when all tuners are in use, all the channels that can not be tuned should by grayed out.
    Only the channels being streamed (iptv) and the channels on the same transponder (e.g. HDHomeRun) should be selectable as only those can be streamed at that time.

Thank you!

Hi.  The first suggestion is a good one.  The second, while pretty cool, is probably not practical to implement.  Also, it would not be obvious at all why the channels aren't available so just a better error message on tuning attempt is probably a better solution.

When clicking on them the improved error message could be displayed but on the other hand the minute I am writting it I feel it would be redundent.

So, an improved error message would already be a good first step forward. 🙂
