Full Version: [OLD] HOW-TO watch Live TV in XBMC for Linux with Tvheadend, the easy way!

k, I've been trying to get tvheadend to work with cccam by using opensasc-ng. After a tip i got, i start tvheadend with -a 1 to choose adapter1 (using svn version). So far I've managed to get tvheadend to do initial scan, but I can not get it to map the channels. I don't think the initial scan really works either. Anyone else getting this to work? Or maybe someone knows what I'm doing wrong?
Is anyone having trouble accessing the http://www.lonelycoder.com site? For the last three days I have been trying to install Tvheadend but the site keeps timing out so I cannot even begin to install the package Sad

Any help on this would be appreciated,

Look at workaround in post #54. May be it works for you as it did for me.

What satellites are you scanning?
Scanning Thor and Sirius
has anyone managed to get cccam working with this?
have a small question, is there a way to fix my own channel order ? right now all channels is a total mess, tried to google but no luck....

Have a look at Sasc-ng, this handles the softcam part and makes a virtual DVB device available for your client e.g. tvheadend.

This should work with any DVB client you like. I prever VDR, so not tested with tvheadend.
Hello,

I did install tvheadend from svn. In a very short time I was able to have some channels inside xbmc and thats a good thing. But now I am stuck on 2 problems.
The first one, is that I try to have the CWC to run, but without success.
I have a newcs server running with an official card in a phoenix reader. Its working well with vdr. I did configure the client in the webgui.
When I restart tvheadend, I can see that its making connection with the newcs server and that it finds a card with 2 providers. I also see an error from CWCserver error connecting to camd.socket: no such file or directory.
I can see any changes in the mapped services to channels, what lets me suppose that there is no descrambling working.

EDIT : this is solved, I forgot to choose the staconf when adding satellites. My second problem is that I only see Astra and not hotbird, probably because I did'nt configure disecq correctly, but I have no idea how to achieve that (is that in "satellite config" ? how ?)

thanks for your help

thanks for the info. I'm a linux novice so wouldnt know where to start as most guides seem to for people using vdr or mythtv.

I am still struggling with that. I tried several times, also with oscam instead of newcs. Sometimes, scrambled services are mapped to channel, but when I tune to it, or it doens'nt work at all, or I have image but with glitches.
Can someone tell me if it related to the error mentioned above (what does it mean Huh), my cardserver configuration, or a bug in tvheadend Huh
I also try to post question on the IRC channel, but no answerSad

I also tried to install sasc-ng. It creates an adapter2. When I start tvheadend with -a 2, I can't see any errors. When I try to add a satellite via the webgui, I have no errors, but it does'nt scan.
When I start tvheadend without parameters, it finds my 2 physical adapters, and then give an error about adapter2 (virtual) that connection to frontend0 a not permitted operation is. Owner and group of adapter2/frontend0 is root:video what is the same as the physical adapters.

I really want to use tvheadend, but without help, I am afraid I won't achieve it.

Thanks for your help,

@moontan77 : I used following links to help me install sasc-ng :

http://dolot.kipdola.com/wiki/Install_SASC-NG
https://opensvn.csie.org/traccgi/sascng/wiki/SascIndex

and a topic on dvbn that says that sasc-ng is now included in vdr-sc (I did downloaded from there)

Hi,
I just installed tvheadhend on my karmic xbmc machine. I managed to scan most muxes on my DVB-T, but now when I try to watch channels in xbmc I always get an error, and on the web interface the following message:
"No transponder available for subscription "127.0.0.1 [ XBMC Media Center ]"".

Should I build the SVN version? Am I doing some error in configuration?
Thanks!
Hi,

I also have a problem with tv headend and sasc-ng. I looked at the permissions and owners of the 4-7 DVB adapters, and they are the same as 0-3 DVB adapters.

Code:

Tvheadend SVN (upcoming 2.6 release) have a "Channel Number" attached
to each channel. This can be used to tie a channel to a remote control button and also steer presentation order in the clients.

I just hope someone in XBMC will pick up the feature and implement in in XBMC's HTSP client
