tvheadend requiring login but not accepting it

  • Hi


    Installed libreElec on a Raspberry 3b+ a couple of months ago, added tvheadend and set it up with hdhomerun. After very little hassle it just worked - and wife was happy. My and wife are the only ones on this network so I configured no login for everyday user - and a password for accessing admin.


    Fast forward til yesterday where I discover, that I can no longer access the tvheadend webinterface on the :9981 port. Firefox keeps giving a native browser login popup.

    It does not accept my previous password and if I escape I get the 401 Unauthorized, with Default login and New login links show behind.


    To enable access I did a workaround and edited /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/bin/tvheadend42.start like below:

    Code
    1. else
    2. # TVHEADEND_ARG="-B -C -u root -g video -c $ADDON_HOME $AVM_SATIP $CUSTOM_ARGS"
    3. TVHEADEND_ARG="-B --noacl -u root -g video -c $ADDON_HOME $AVM_SATIP $CUSTOM_ARGS"
    4. # TVHEADEND_ARG="-B -u root -g video -c $ADDON_HOME $AVM_SATIP $CUSTOM_ARGS"
    5. fi

    only the version without any access control at all, will allow me to access tvheadend


    Any ideas on what could be the problem?

    don't know exactly, but in my TvHeadend HTSP Client (see: Setting => Add-ons => my add-ons => PVR client) the IP is set to 127.0.0.1, ports are default (9981 and 9982) and NO user and NO user passwd

    Thanks - I have exactly the same settings, and I have no problem in accessing tvheadend trough LibreELEC.


    The problem is that remote browser access is no longer working/permitted, so I cant program my recordings, change settings and so on - using tvheadends native web interface on port 9981 anymore.


    I wonder if this is a deliberate choice, due to safety considerations or something :?:

  • Mine sometimes logs in sometimes, I have to try several times.


    On my backend, setup via the kodi interface. I have the ip address of the backend. ie 192.168.0.23 I set a user & password there.


    try reinstalling the server, perhaps trying what I did using the server ip. then open a webpage with that ip & port of 9981


    then follow the wizard

  • I set a user & password there...

    Ohh bummer! It turned out to be my own fault after all :blush:


    Checking the username I spotted that I had limited the ip range allowed to access tvheadend - but I have completely redesigned my network since then. It is a couple a weeks ago, so in my head I did not connect that to my problem.


    Thanks for making my recheck my settings :thumbup:
