    Personally I was thinking about getting DVB-T2 USB stick. But I don't know how good is their support under LE and Kodi.

    AFAIK current latest LE & Kodi releases does NOT have a special support for DVB-T2 USB sticks. So you have to check whether the DVB-T USB stick you wish to use is supported by Linux kernel (release that current LE is running on) or not.

    Yeah I am experiencing the issue quite often but for me it's not easy to apply the patch to LE. I suppose this would need a LE compilation from scratch and it seems to be a bit complex for me to do it.

    I am running LE 11 Nightly builds, updating every couple days. Hoping that issues I have will be fixed by LE developers some day. Unfortunately it looks that Live TV (DVB-T and related) has a rather low priority - I understand there are more important things to do and the time is limited as this is non-commercial project and developers are working on it at their free time.

    You may give it a try.

    BTW. What I am also experiencing is an occasional EPG corruption on LE running on RPi 4B (some program descriptions are incomplete / screwed up). I have reported it here a long time ago but it's still the same. And it seems this does not happen on the same LE version running on x86 machine. As it is random and I don't have the x86 and RPi 4B devices at the same location, it's hard to compare but I don't remember seeing this issue on x86.

    I am using both but don't see any advantage 4.3 release over 4.2. From my perspective 4.3 is worse (more bugs / compatibility issues with Kodi ) so I recommend stay on 4.2 but both versions are usable.

    BTW. it's possible to install both 4.2 and 4.3 TVH add-ons the same device and switch between easily (keep only one enabled).

    It's also important if the wires (including connectors) used are capable enough to transfer power spikes, especially the lowest ground wire on the schema. If this is really the only ground wire, I would avoid using the USB-C power connector and power the RPi from the pins on the large connector instead.

    Nevertheless, I think omitting the ground connection between top DC-DC module and RPi is not a good design.

    There's missing ground connection between RPi and top DC-DC converter on the diagram...

    I suppose it's done through the common ground wire from a single 12V PSU but if not, it could behave very strange.

    BTW. I don't know if it's your case but avoid using Tvheadend server 4.3, use release 4.2 instead.

    There's an incompatibility with Kodi so despite the subtitles are present in the stream (and other apps like VLC can display them), Kodi can't sometimes (depends on the stream provider) display them from live stream (playing recorded stream is OK including subtitles) when TvH 4.3 is used.

    The same with LE 11 nightly-20230113-4c5c570

    MyGica DVB-T2 USB adapter is now unusable with LE 11 :(

    I believe this feature request is very easy to implement and from my point it makes sense - so the question is - could you please to do it?


    As described here:


    The current backup procedure does not save any file from the /flash folder but at least the config.txt is very important and may be customized.

    That's my case. I also need to backup some personal folders. That's why I created a customized backup script, compatible with the LE's default restore script. Except the files in the /flash folder because it is write protected (mounted as R/O) by default.


    The feature request is (at least) to remount the /flash folder as R/W during the restore. Or perhaps even update the backup part to backup the /flash/config.txt automatically. I believe some other users would appreciate that.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    I also have a broadlink universal blaster controlled by Home Assistant but for another room I don't want to have to buy another for something which should work with the built in remote.

    Yeah I understand. I am controlling (not just) the LE with (any) preferred IR Remote Control.

    In my case it is the different type than my LG original to avoid conflict (in fact I don't control the TV anymore with the original IR RC).

    I have created the mapping file for my IR RC (currently Samsung) to be used with ir-keytable and configured irexec to run scripts, bound to selected (usually unused) buttons.

    See this post: RE: Remote Control

    So it is possible for instance to send a commands to Home Assistant through MQTT and much more.
