Linux viewing livetv directly from the device?
#1
I have a PCTV 292e stick and VLC under linux can stream liveTv directly from /dev/dvb/adapter0. The "URL" is then dvb-t2://frequency=498000000
Is this possible with kodi too?

Yes.
You will have to setup a backend which can be local or on another device on your network.

I use the tuner you mentioned in a testsystem using npvr or tvmosaic as backend, but these tuners are well-support in a variety of systems.

I mean access directly by kodi, without backend. How do you use tvmosaic as backend? In your NAS?

No, Kodi cannot handle dvb-t/t2/c without backend.
But as said you can run kodi and pvr software on the same machine.

I use a NAS as my main system indeed as its 'always on' anyway so the task fits. Tests are on Linux and Windows systems.
