Full Version: [OLD] HOW-TO watch Live TV in XBMC for Linux with Tvheadend, the easy way!
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
There is something weird going on when scheduling a recording over the web interface (version 2.5):

I go to the upcoming program listing (don't remember exact name), and click a program and select Record. It looks good and the program is marked in another color. If I now refresh the page with F5, the program is not marked anymore and I can again click the program and select Record. This goes on forever.

I haven't found a way to submit bugs on the tvheadend homepage, so I posted here.

Also it segfaults quite often, but a "while true" works well. If there is interest in catching version 2.5 bugs I could run a gdb trace (Hauppage Nova-T 500, Ubuntu 9.04).

Thanks to andoma for a superb bit of software. I've had live tv working for a few months now. And most everyting work out of the box.

However, I'm using and xmltv grabber (tv_grab_ua) that returns start and stop times in what appears to be localtime with a (+3 hour) timezone offset.

Code:
<programme start="20090920231500 +0300" stop="20090921010500 +0300" channel="inter-plus">...

When these get imported by tvheadend into the EPG it shows the start and end times without correcting for the offset. In my case they appear two hours out. (I'm in BST which is GMT+1).

Is it the xmltv feed that is wrong or is tvheadend misinterpreting (ignoring) the offsets?

Is anybody else having success with this type of xmltv data?
Im testing the Code Word Client for my local card and it keeps giving me "Access Denied" .. it buffers for like a couple of seconds and then access denied, and keeps going back and forth between these two status ??

I know that my card is working, because i have a dreambox that is reading from it, so what could be the problem?
I couldn't find any info. Does tvheadend support the hd homerun?

Add the Stream files as a source in XBMC.

So the connection take more than 30 seconds.

Was this issue ever resolved? I am getting this with XBMC and tvheadend, both using the svn as of today. Both are running on the same machine, and tvheadend looks to be working fine (sees channels etc.).

Any help on this would be appreciated,
Cheers,
Andy

Apparently, tvheadend does not support the +#### notation for timezones.

I'll try to fix this for the next release.

Ah, so I need to use the syntax htsp://username:[email protected]:9982 ?

No, in my access control tab I enabled one line with the following:
user: *
pass: *
prefix: 0.0.0.0/0
streaming, video recorder, web interface, admin: enabled

With this full opened configuration you don't have to specify a user/pass so the connection is ok with htsp://serverip:9982
