I have a stange issue. I have coreelec on odroid C2. Since few days, I'm not able to start any iptv stream on tv. Only way to start the stream is, I start kodi in my andoid phone. Starting any channel and stopping it. After that, I can start any chnnel on TV, channel switching is also possible.

But when I watch a channel for a while (about 30 minutes), then I can'T open any other chennel again. I already created a clean coreelec installation, and issue is still persist. Any Idea?

Sounds a bit strange indeed :) .. did you make sure that " cache at local " storage is NOT activated under Simple iptv client ?

You mean for the play list? need to check it, I'm using xtreme-editor to edit my playlist. Same list is working fine on my phone (android + kodi app or perfect player). On TV, it is not working :(

I have the exact same problem. No idea what is happening - using latest coreelec 9.0.1. If I start to play a channel on my phone using IPTVPro app then the channels will start working on my coreelec box too, but only for a little while - This is absolutely mind boggling! any help please?

I experimented a while. I have a RASPI2 which I used before I bought the C2. I installed the lattest libreelec and tested it. with RASPI2 on same network with same configuration, I have no issue. As next, I installed libreelec on C2 and tested it, also with libreelec, I had the same issue. Raspi is too weak for FHD streams, so this is not the solution for me.

I also tested the C2 with a wifi adapter to make sure that the MAC of the the LAN is somehow blocked by my router. But with wifi, I have the same issue.

I have the same problem as well on Kodi. the last couple of weeks I can hardly start a channel stream. While inside my smart TV it is working as expected.

I have exactly the same problem:
  1. RaspberryPi with Libreelec works perfectly.
  2. Kodi on windows works perfectly.
  3. Smart iptv on TV works perfectly.
However, Coreelec on my S912 box fails to load the m3u on startup (even with wait for network on startup enabled) and times-out after a period of time and I can't change channels. To fix it, I have to start a stream on another platform, then go back to Coreelec.

Rinse an repeat.

I had to learn how to use tcpdump. Then comparing the tcp headers between Coreelec and pc connection to my IPTV provider, I finally found some difference that revealed itself to be the cause of the issue.
In my case the issue started long ago after a Coreelec update back in June/July last year.
This command is working for me. Try it in ssh and if it works put it in autostart:

echo 2 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn

My autostart looks like this:
(
echo 2 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn
) &

For some reason - my streams are loading today without making any changes to CoreElec.
Very strange, but I'm happy.
