Tvheadend nightly builds for LE

  • yes I switch soon to provide addons for LE10 too, we have just 3 different addon archs at LE10 so its much easier to provide addons for everything


    RPi0-3 are likely staying a lot longer at 9.2 for now so I keep those builds for some time

  • First post to this thread but read through most of it. I have a PI4 with LE 9.2.6 and the stock Tvh addon, but getting issues with live TV. I would like to try the latest build.


    Am I correct in understanding that RPI4-service.tvheadend42.3-3-1906.zip is the file I should be downloading?


    And if so, do I just do a regular install from .zip file as I would with any other addon?

    Any news on this?

  • We are currently pulling the final changes to LE10 so it is soon now much more reasonable to build it at all.

    We had unexpected package bumps of ~200 packages at LE and another 800 coming so its currently difficult to provide something without frequently rebuilding everything.

    Thanks for the update!

    how much beer(s) I need to "sponsor" to see a TvHeadend -ge (greater than or equal) 4.3 for the shiny new LE (after it's released) ?


    but be aware 8):

    - I got NO paypal account and won't get one, so only your bank account delivered via PM are an option for sponsored beer(s)

    - the amount of beer will be limited, cause I'm "the poorest - in any sense - JoeAverage on earth"

    - beer(s) should be shared with other LE-/Kodi-Developer's in your surroundings to encourage "community-based beer-induced brainstorming's"

  • What you mean by lack of further development?

    it is far less then before, perexg was a monster in that regard, there were no substantial fixes for while now
    currently there is nice stuff at the prs but not merged yet like the HDhomerun emulator


    I uploaded some testbuilds to the usual location.

    Tvheadend nightly builds for LibreELEC

    ARMv8 for RPi4 and ARMv7 for RPi2/3, these addons are working for AW and RK too.

  • ...

    thats Tvheadend 4.2 not 4.3

    mine is 4.3 like the tile of that thread might spoiled :)

    thanks for lightning fast support !!!


    well, my question was more focused on internals then "outer" numbers.


    anyway:

    addon installs fine on last LE-nightly.

    needed to disable the elder addon from nightly (4.2)

    - if one stumbles on it: both addon (4.2 + 4.3) are "sharp" if it wasn't a fresh/clean/new LE-nightly-install (will test that too...) -


    just running a new tvh-setup with 4.3 ... and I'm really curious if it will fix my crash bug too...


    stay tuned !

  • - Hooray -


    the addon runs well since >1h (tested on Generic LE nightly-20210222-d8710b2)

    usually with the default 4.2 watching Sat-TV kodi would have been crashed, so it seems it fixes my crashes [1]

    also my Continuity Error's stay low, too (currently 3), usually they blow up (> 100)


    !!! Thanks !!! :cool:

    - where is your PM with your bank account, CvH ? -


    the only thing I can see is that the Web-IF logs nothing (see attached screenshot) until epgdb kicks in, while /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/service.tvheadend43/service.log shows entries (tail -f in an terminal).

    - not that dramatic for me -


    I'll investigate further and if all stays well, I'll update my bug reports.
