    I will do that - can you make a quick build off the current 1933 version in the Tvh git? (one of these days I need to learn and setup my system for builds!)

    OK - ran a few more tests this morning. Here are the results...


    The tuner gets stuck with 1928 and 1931...works with 1919 and earlier.


    The 1853 version you supplied works with the tuner but still has the predefined muxes missing. The 1892 version referenced here: Tvheadend 4.2 with transcoding by CvH · Pull Request #123 · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub works and has all the predefined tuners...so I'm not sure why your test builds are different.


    Hopefully his provides some insight - but I realize you have a lot of other things going on getting ready for a final 7.0 release. I appreciate your and the team's efforts on this project!!


    I have made some Versions of Tvh (Generic, RPi2/3 and IMX6) test


    pls test what is the highest version that is running for you (there is no issue at Tvh bugtracker atm) - I have choosen version 101 because the next update will overwrite this version and you didn't need to install some version manual !


    I started with the highest version 4.1.1931 and it worked. Tried both as an upgrade and a clean install and both worked.


    There was one weird thing however - for the ATSC-T network - only Denver and San Francisco muxes showed up. There is usually a half dozen or so pre-defined muxes - including a full ATSC center channel list. I think this is pulled from a third party service, so maybe something is up with that listing?


    Not sure what is different in the repo from the test version you provided - but it works! :)


    --- I checked the mux list at dvb-apps: 5e68946b0e0d /util/scan/atsc/ and it looks intact - not sure why this version of TVH is not pulling the full list.

    Looks like the same issue with 6.95.1


    Weird, since this originally worked for me. Is there a chance that the TVH 4.2 service addon has been updated in the last day or two?


    On the status tab of the TVH web interface, the tuner seems to "turn on" but does not actually get a stream started to tune the mux. Just hangs there and makes the tuner unavailable. The system log never shows that the mux is being tuned.


    Again, this is strange as I had the system running fine for a number of days and even used the built in wizard to set things up.

    Ran some more tests -- this version (4.1.1892):


    Tvheadend 4.2 with transcoding by CvH · Pull Request #123 · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub


    works. So definitely a TVH issue with the updated addon on the repo.

    I'm now having this same issue. 4.2 was working...now the tuner is stuck. I believe it happened after the 6.95.2 update.


    I've uninstalled TVH...erased the TVH folder from addons and tried a clean install. Tuner will try to start scan but get stuck. If I roll back to 4.0.9 the tuner works fine. Seems like a TVH issue , but strange that it was working before.


    If I get time later - I will clean install 6.95.1 and see if TVH 4.2 works.


    I don't think you need mc2xml, doesn't SD have a xml feed that you could download with curl or wget?

    Thinking further, xmltv would do it but has a curl dependency. This python software may be the best bet.

    Thank you - this is interesting. I haven't run a python script before... I'm currently getting the following when trying to run jsontv:


    >>> from jsontv import SchedulesDirect
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    File "jsontv.py", line 26, in <module>
    import requests
    ImportError: No module named requests



    As there is very little documentation for this script...I'm not exactly sure what is wrong. I appreciate any insight someone may have!


    In the us you should probably be using schedules direct.


    I am, but you have to run a program to download the SD data into an XMLTV for tvheadend to read. Unless I'm missing some other config, that conversion has to take place on another machine since we can't install any programs on an LE build.


    On a side note, I've reached out to the creator of mc2xml to see if he would write a Kodi addon version of the program.

    Would it be possible to get the mc2xml program included in the builds? That way we can run the xml grabber on the same system and feed it into tvheadend directly. This is especially needed her in the US as our ATSC epg info is not very reliable!


    Since LE is a closed system - I don't think we can install the code on our own.


    Thanks for the awesome work and great communication on these builds!!

    Probably an issue with previously having 4.0 installed and configured. I'll try a clean LE install and see if it works.


    ---update - same issue. Looks like I'll need to wait for the 4.2 version to appear in the repo. (which is currently offline - so maybe that's a good sign!)


    Sorry i was responding to the post above mine. You can manually install 4.2 using the file that Cvh linked here


    LibreELEC


    Disable 4.0 first in case it causes issues with ports due to 4.0 and 4.2 running at same time.


    thanks for pointing to the other post -- I uninstalled 4.0 and installed 4.2, but I can't login to the web interface.


    The tvheadend log shows the following error:


    /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/bin/tvheadend: line 1: syntax error: unexpected ")"


    Worked for me albeit after some messing about. The addon and addon_data folder names are different than normal so had to rename the existing addon_data folder (i.e. service.multimedia.tvheadend to service.tvheadend42).


    Were you able to see TVheadend 4.2 in the repo and install it?

    Just finished a clean install of the new Beta release and can't find Tvheadend 4.2 in the LibreELEC repository. Only 4.0.9 is showing up. Is this something that will appear soon or is there another place I should be looking?

    TVheadend service is running and can access the web interface to configure. However, the frontend client will not stay enabled so TV service does not run in Kodi.


    Also - if possible, could the TVheadend addon be compiled from the latest code? The ATSC EPG grabber works on the last Milhouse version for OE 4.1-1724.

    After uninstalling and reinstalling the TVH addons - they are now staying enabled and TV is working.


    As for the updated addon - totally understand if we need to wait for the official TVH 4.2 release. Maybe someone will eventually write a front end configuration program for TVH that can be used within Kodi!
