    First of all, thanks for your replies! :) I'm certain that the tv hat is the best available solution given that it eliminates the USB interface just for starters but this isn't the scope of this thread. I have a XBOX One tuner and I'd like to get it working, sure that it is possible to get better results than the ones I'm currently getting, maybe not perfect but certainly not completely unusable like it is now.

    I've made some tries dowgrading the client to version 4.4.18.2 (the oldest available in the libreelec repository) to no avail: the behaviour remains EXACTLY the same. Then I've dowgraded the server to version 4.3-1804 (again, the oldest available, this one not in the repository where I couldn't find any but on the nightlies server) and things have even worsened. Now it gives IMMEDIATELY the error message that the server isn't responding properly in spite of the fact that before downgrading I've uninstalled, cleaned all and reinstalled the older version from scratch.

    I'd like to try a 4.2.x version for the server but I don't know where to find it given that in the official repository I find only the client, not the server. I'm starting to think that the problem aren't the server and client versions but libreelec 9.2 as others report. Downgrading to 9.0.2 would mean reinstalling everything and this is a pain but I would do it as soon as I would have some spare time.

    For what concerns channels numbering, you're right and I know that but I had expected a right numbering from the outset just as it happens with every television because doing it manually is very time consuming: I'm certain there is a smarter solution which I miss because I tend to exclude a great piece of work like tvheadend could have such a big limitation. Have a nice day! :)

    I've had some time to deepen my research and I've found this interesting thread:


    crazycat: fix building for Amlogic devices using 3.10 kernel and enable for WeTek_Core by kszaq · Pull Request #2549 · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub


    It seems EXACTLY what I'm looking for BUT there are a couple of problems. I have no idea on how to apply a patch and, even worse, I have no sources to apply it to nor a toolchain to build everything up. I guess I have more work to do...

    Hello to everyone! :) I have an Xbox ONE tuner and, having issues with getting it to work on a Wetek Core, I've tried it on an RPi2 I had lying around.

    My current setup is LE 9.2.3, tvheadend server 4.3-1896 and tvheadend client 4.4.21.1. The Xbox ONE tuner is detected just fine, just with the built-in drivers (CrazyCat ones). I can scan the channels and everything seems fine (apart from the awful channel numbering which doesn't resemble the one I get on a 'normal' television while it seems they're sorted in the order they've been found or something similar, completely unusable this way!). The problem is that after a variable period of time (it could be two minutes but also ten seconds, not more than a couple of minutes anyway), the channel I'm viewing shuts down with a still image and the buffering circle at the center of the screen. After that, I'm no longer able to see any channel and I randomly get the error "Tvheadend Server does not respond properly" (not always though). The only way to get it working again is rebooting but then it starts acting up again.

    It seems a rather common problem and there are many threads about this issue but the proposed solutions don't work or aren't appliable being for different platforms like OSMC. Maybe it has anything to do with being my server the latest nightly, maybe incompatible with the client? Do you have a suggested version to use? I've also read of someone (more than one) having problems with LE 9.2 and tvheadend at all: should I revert back to 9.0? Would the Xbox ONE tuner be detected on it?

    Thanks in advance for your replies and have a nice day! :)

    Hi and first of all please accept my sincere apologies for not replying before. You confirm exactly what I expected, unfortunately! Is there a way I could build the right drivers for the Wetek Core or do I just need to give up? I'm not new to cross-compiling and I've done quite a lot of it to build what I needed to use on an old mips router I used once ago but I need a suitable toolchain and the sources. Am I out of luck?

    A slight off topic... I had a RPi2 laying around and I've installed LE on it (I've always used it with OSMC before). My current setup is LE 9.2.3, tvheadend server 4.3-1896 and tvheadend client 4.4.21.1. There, the Xbox ONE tuner is detected just fine, just with the built-in drivers (still CrazyCat) but I'm experiencing other issues which aren't the scope of this thread and I'll talk about them elsewhere...

    Thanks for your help and have a nice day! :)

    Hi and first of all thanks for your reply! I've checked and all I could see when entering in the addon details was:


    DVB drivers for TBS (CrazyCat)

    9.0.0 by Team CoreELEC


    (this is the title)


    The only working buttons are "check for updates", "disable" and "uninstall". The "configure" one is disabled like there isn't anything to configure and/or select. I suspect everything is due to the version not being the right one, beginning from the fact it is the CoreELEC and not LibreELEC one or, even more probable, my kernel (3.10.108 as returned issuing the "uname -r" command under ssh) is too old and those drivers require a newer one. I don't know. Have a nice day! :)

    Hello to everyone! :) I'm struggling to get the XBOX One usb tuner working on the setup mentioned in the title. By what I've understood, Wetek Core support has been dropped a while ago being it based on a limited (Amlogic S812) and rather closed source platform being the latest version available the one I'm currently using. Still based on my research, it seems that my tuner is working ootb on Libreelec 8.2.5 but I'd like to avoid being forced to revert back to it given that some add-ons I use require Leia. I've downloaded the only crazycat dvb drivers add-on package I could scour here:


    CoreELEC-Official&f=driver.dvb.crazycat-9.0.0-2018-04-12.zip


    I know it's for CoreELEC and for the Play 2 and not the Core (but, if I'm not mistaken, the hardware should be the same apart from the missing internal receiver) but it is the only one I could find. The rest I could find were all dead links or so.

    On dmesg I get this:


    [ [email protected]] usb 1-1.3: Product: Xbox USB Tuner

    [ [email protected]] usb 1-1.3: Manufacturer: Microsoft Corp.

    [ [email protected]] usb 1-1.3: SerialNumber: 000205070415


    and this:


    [ [email protected]] kernel-overlays-setup: processing conf /storage/.cache/kernel-overlays/50-driver.dvb.crazycat.conf


    but the receiver isn't detected by tvheadend server (HTS Tvheadend 4.3-1774 ~ LibreELEC Tvh-addon v9.0.444 which has been the newest version I could scour) and I still get an empty list when I go to "tv adapters". I also remember that during my research I've read (maybe on the CoreElec forum) that someone was talking about a 'legacy' version of Crazycat dvb drivers for older kernels like it is the case here...

    Is there anything I could do instead of reverting back to 8.2.5 (given that is really true that my tuner works ootb with it, I don't know). Thanks in advance and have a nice day! :)
