as I am moving from Lubuntu to Bananian on my BPi and having a working tvheadend installation already running the last 34 days (since last reboot) on it, I can tell you that the program itself works like a charm, but I did not use the Raspi binary, I very quickly compiled it myself from the official repo. I don't know if the Raspi version will work well, just try, I will not hurt. :-)
I found the selfcompiling from official sources to be nicer, as I can easily update when I want and have the right installation method when doing so.
Here is what I have done, after I decided for a folder to put the sources:
Commands for building it: https://tvheadend.org/projects/tvheadend
You are pretty much done after "make install".
I found different instructions and had some problems with configurations in the past as instructions differ wildly.
After make install and a reboot, tvheadend's webif should be available. If it doesn't try to start it on command line like this:
tvheadend starts as "hts" user normally. This is where it saves it fonfiguration. In one instruction, addtitionally to the steps above, they manually added all the hts-user stuff like this: Copy the Code
- /usr/local/bin/tvheadend -u hts -g hts -f -C
It has been a while since my last tvheadend installation, I will probably install on Bananian tonight and will see if I told you stupid stuff here. :-D Copy the Code
- groupadd hts
- useradd -g hts
- usermod -G video -m hts
- usermod -G video -a hts
- usermod -G audio -a hts
So good luck!
PS: What kind of DVB device will you use. Does it run out of the box?
