My IPTV provider supports timeshift, but how exactly do I get it working? I saw a thread on Reddit, where a user of a similar box (Dreamlink T2) is having the exact same issues that I'm having on my Formuler z7+ box: https://www.reddit.com/r/IPTV/…with_formuler_z7/drzp06d/
I did everything he describes -- tried various types of drives (flash drive, hard drive, SD card), tried various file system formats (FAT32, exFAT, NTFS), tried using different ports (USB2 port, USB3 port, microSD port), and even tried factory resetting the device. Nothing I have tried so far has worked. When I goto a channel, pressing pause/rewind/fastforward/left/right/etc does nothing -- the live TV video just keeps playing.
What's interesting, though, is that I noticed that there is a `_timeshift.ts` file being generated and written to my drives, and if you watch that file it is a capture of the last channel that I was watching. So it does appear that timeshift is ATTEMPTING to work, but something inside of the MYTVOnline app is preventing it from actually working. Thanks to JakeSiemer on Reddit for this information -- I would have never known to look for this!
Does the Formuler support team have any insight as to how to fix this issue that multiple users appear to be having?
