I'm currently running Libreelec with Kodi 17 and have an Xbox One DVB adaptor for live telly.
I downloaded the beta yesterday as I was interested in the retrogaming/netflix/whether the DVB experience has been improved. I installed this to a separate USB drive and tried a few things out but it appeared that Kodi 18 wasn't liking the Xbox DVB tuner out of the box.
So, can Kodi 18 handle DVB adaptors natively these days? i.e. I notice it has some DVB drivers that can be installed. Should it be possible to install the correct one [for an Xbox DVB USB tuner] and then commence tuning etc without having to install something like TVHeadend?
If the above is not possible, since I was using TVHeadend, is this still the preferred option for live TV/PVR? Although I configured my Kodi 17 setup about 18 months ago, I don't recall the exact steps for getting the live TV up and running. Is there a step by step guide for doing this involving getting the minimal amount of components etc and then subsequent configuration? I do remember there being a "bit of a faff" about logging into the TVHeadend server remotely and then setting it up but I wonder if all this has now been streamlined?
Thanks for any assistance
