In case someone is interested, I got Tvheadend up and running on the Raspberry Pi, using a cheap DVB- T USB stick :-)

CPU average on the RPi when streaming one channel is about 20% (RPi modest overclocked). XBMC is running on another device.

I am trying to install tvheadend on my NAS to watch futubox channels.

The installation worked well, but I struggle to configure it to work with futubox channels, it doesn't seem to connect to it.
Did anybody got it working with futubox?

here is what the futubox stream looks like: rtsp:\\\fb\

I'm currently using XBMC with raspberry pi and would like to connect it to my analog tv signal with Tvheadend.

Is there any good tv tuner compatible with both raspberry pi and Tvheadend using analog?

i have a jail broken apple2tv 4.4.4. and purchased from ebay last february

i did not know live tv is even possible with my unit which is interesting but i have my fios carrier so that does not concern me.
i have not used my apple2 tv for quite some time and i believe thare are updates or i have updated incorrectly thus feel the full potential of accessing its capabilitoes have been compromised considerably.
is it possible since i am not to technically involved with compiters and my apple2 tv to directly contact you for assistance please? all i mostly interestyed is to acquire old tv shows and old movies upon a thoriugh library.
please respond to me at my email address at: [email protected]
