Full Version: DVB drivers for HDHomeRun?

I'm working on setting up my new HTPC build. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04, and I've installed the PVR version of XBMC from the Pulse-Eight website.

It looked like TVheadend was the preferred tuner backend on the forums (correct me if I'm wrong - I know mythtv is also popular, but it looks like it still has some kinks in it). So I downloaded and installed it. I am now trying to get TVHeadend + HDHomeRun + XBMC to live in sweet harmony.

Between these two guides here and here I managed to get started. Unfortunately I cannot seem to find the dvb drivers necessary to make TVHeadend see the HDHomeRun. When I try to install them from the PPA using the following, I get an Error 404 Not Found.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tfylliv/dvbhdhomerun
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dvbhdhomerun-dkms dvbhdhomerun-utils
sudo service dvbhdhomerun-utils start

I have looked and looked, but can't seem to find them. This is the same place the official Ubuntu documentation suggests you get them as well. Any suggestions?
If I remember correctly, there is a configuration file somewhere in /etc where you should define the PID of the tuner(s) returned by "hdhomerun_config discover".
Otherwise the DVB device is not properly created. It has been a long time since I donĀ“t use it anymore.

Hope this helps.
