SrcTV @ xxx
I have seen that at the big hosters are running 5000 + slots on 1 tv.

how can i get it like that?

I nomaly runs with the port: 27016, and how can i put a new tv on with the port 27020, with 256 slots + the other one

256 + 10 slots, and so on.

What do i have to do for that?, i have seen them do it, for the cal euro open finals, they had 2 tv servers on 1 tv, they where linked together, but how to do that ?..

You have to use TV relaying.

You setup one "master tv" that's on the actual match server. It's normal SourceTV, but you set "tv_password something" to your server.cfg. The SourceTV will show up on the match server, but everything else is as usual.

Then you set relay servers up. On the relay servers you define "tv_relaypassword something" (and that password must match the one you set on the master tv). Then start relay servers like +tv_relay x.x.x.x. The relay server will connect to the master tv and start relaying the stream. The master tv will then show 255 slots free, which are on the relay tv. If you set up more relay TVs you'll get more slots. It's only possible to have 255 spectators on one TV, so you must set up multiple relay TVs if you want to have more than 255 spectators.

These instructions are for srcds.

The benefit of TV relaying is that you won't stress the match server at all practically. I've had this kind of setup with 100+ spectators.
Okay, i think i understood that.

I have to use this in my server.cfg on the war server?

tv_port 27016
tv_name "27016 @ SrcTV"
tv_maxclients "2"
tv_transmitall 1
tv_delay 120
tv_chattimelimit "5"
tv_maxrate "6000"
tv_title "27016 @ SrcTV"
tv_snapshotrate 16
tv_password "ccwar"
tv_enable 1
tv_relaypassword ccwar

and i my start line i have to put +tv_relay 27020 in?

Quote:c:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map de_dust2 -maxplayers 15 -autoupdate -tickrate 100 +tv_relay 27020

Will there be password on my tv now?
(cuz, i dont want to have that, only the on master tv)

You know what, you are so lucky, that you can make the .cfg file for me, and the Cvars in it Toungue
And tell me about the start line, that one over doesn't work, just says, no server enable for (27020) or something like that.
You've got it right!

This is the only place where you've got it wrong:
tv_port 27016

Because you've defined your match server's TV to port 27016, you have to start your relaying TVs with +tv_relay x.x.x.x:27016 and not :27020.

You can set normal tv_password on your match server. Then nobody can join the match server's SourceTV because they don't know the password. Note that tv_password is the password for normal players/viewers and tv_relaypassword is the password for relaying TVs. As long as you don't have tv_password set on the server players/viewers can join there and spectate.

You can write "tv_status" on the master TV and on the relaying TVs to see some statistics. On the master TV you'll see the total number of slots, which can be much over 255.
Okay so i have to do like this:

Quote:c:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map de_dust2 -maxplayers 15 -autoupdate -tickrate 100 +tv_relay

(router not opened yet, just need knowlegde at tvs Smile)

and then it should work?

Okay, tryed that, didn't work:

Don't use the +map switch in relay TVs. Relay TV does not load any map. It just connects to the master TV and starts relaying the broadcast.

Also make sure that your match server with the master TV is in the correct address. Write "status" in the console of the match server and see the line "sourcetv: port 27016, delay 30.0s". Then you can be sure that the match server's SourceTV is in the port 27016.
it is the port 27016, i have checked...

still dont work.. Sad

Can you make the tv_config?

with all the cvars..
