    I didn't try any kind of decoding on the Pi. I heard some people did this successfully using an overclocked Pi3 (can't remember where I read that) but it seemed the Pi3 can only barely do this if at all. I bought an ODROID C2 instead that apparently has the hardware support necessary for h.265 and that works quite well. I experience some glitches now and then but can't really tell if that is the ODROID, the Pi or even my WIFI.


    Why did you compile it? What is wrong with the 4.2 version we provide in our repo?

    My TVHeadend installation is on a Raspi running Raspbian because that machine also does some other minor tasks. I use LibreElec only on the ODROID that is connected to my TV set.


    Sorry for not getting back to this thread, but I only started to work on this again today...

    Yes, I've compiled tvheadend 4.2.2-9 on the raspberry pi (according to the instructions here) and I can now watch live TV. So it was really the older tvheadend version.

    Thanks again,

    Thanks pajtaz, didn't find that thread before. I will look into installing 4.2 then. I'm using Raspbian Jessie and tvheadend 4.0 is the last stable official package, so I used it as it seemed to work.


    pajtaz, thanks for your reply!

    This is what the log shows when I try to start the stream. I don't know what the "Unable to provide BER/UNC value." lines mean but they seem to be related to the connection with Kodi. The last line is from a (successful) attempt with VLC and doesn't have those lines:

    first time LibreElec user here...

    I've just set up two computers to stream TV over my network. I'm trying to watch DVB-T2 (which comes with HEVC/h.265 here in Germany). One computer is a Raspberry Pi (model B) with a DVB-T2 stick and SSD both via USB and running TVHeadend 4.0.8. The other one is an ODROID C2 connected to my TV set and running LibreElec 8.0.0 with the tvheadend add-on activated.

    The TVHeadend installation seems to work fine: I can schedule recordings both via web interface and Kodi, watch recordings via Kodi and also watch live TV with VLC on my desktop computer. However, when I try to start live TV from within Kodi, it'll just turn the channel name green und show a little "play" symbol at the top right next to the show's name (see attached screenshot). It doesn't show the stream, neither video nor audio, though. Am I missing something obvious here?
