I have searched the web for guide on installing Tvheadend...I'm somewhat new to Linux but not hopeless!!

Anyhow, I have Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS + XBMC + Tvheadend PVR running but having hell of a time installing Tvheadend backend..

Can not make sense of the below stepsConfused

Please provide step by step guide...

BTW.. it asked for curl which I installed....sudo apt-get install curl....

If you had previously added the launchpad PPA, please be sure to remove it (as it no longer exists)

sudo apt-add-repository -r

Before you can use the repositories you probably want to import the GPG signing key:

curl | sudo apt-key add -

You will then need to add which ever repository you feel is most appropriate, for example if you want to be cautious and have a reliable system:

sudo apt-add-repository
sudo apt-get update

Note: if you install more than one repository you will only ever get packages from the one holding the most recent version number, so the order of priority would be:

unstable > beta > stable

You can easily remove a repository though, so should you suddenly come over all crazy and want to live on the edge:

sudo apt-add-repository -r
sudo apt-add-repository
sudo apt-get update
