Just wondering if anyone has HDHomerun and TVHeadend working together?


I have TVHeadend running on an Ubuntu server but for the life of me can't get it to work.  It only finds 3 muxes and the scan results always fails.  Anyone know of any guides?


Thanks in advance.

I have it working with my HDHomerun.  I'm running tvheadend on a raspberry pi 3 running raspbian (not using openelec or KODI).


I followed the instructions below from the silicondust website for HDHomerun to run on linux.


There is also another website that I cannot name because the guy has been banned on here has great guides for tvheadend setups for nz freeview.


Google GENERIC TVHEADEND SERVER SETUP FOR FREEVIEW NZ and you should be able to find it.

Thanks for the reply and tips.  It's up and running now.


I'm using Kodi as my client and it's working great.  The only thing that is troubling me is the EPG for channels 1,2 and 3.  It only displays the current show and the next show with everything beyond showing "No information available".  The other channels (Duke Prime etc) show guide data days into the future.

I'm not using Kodi but with my clients (TVH) on iPhone and Apple TV4 I can see 7 days worth of guide data.

Have you tried using the above website I suggested to google's xml details?
