Tvheadend iPhone client

Added by Luis Fernandes almost 4 years ago

Hello all,

I don't know if this is allowed, forgive me if I'm posting something that I shouldn't :)

I'm working on a tvheadend iPhone client to list channels and manage recordings on tvheadend.
It's going to be free and it's open source as well ( sources on github )

It's almost ready for 1.0 release (I've been working on it for the past 2 months) but I wanted to see if anyone was willing to test the beta version before releasing it. Right now it's only me and a friend of mine who use it.

Because of Apple guidelines I only have a limited number of devices I can add to the beta testing, so here's what I'm looking for:
- if you actively use tvheadend everyday, make heavy use of recordings and are willing to loose some time testing and reporting, send me a pm
- if you have a jailbroken phone you can install any IPA, valid or invalid signature
- if you are an ios developer then download the source and run it on the phone! Help fixing stuff is also welcome :)

Thanks!

I would love to.. but dont have alot of time...

what is the name of the app?

RE: Tvheadend iPhone client - Added by Luis Fernandes almost 4 years ago

The app is called TvhClient, but it's not in the app store yet. The code is at https://github.com/zipleen/tvheadend-iphone-client if anyone is interested.

If you have a jailbroken iphone you can just install the app and use it normally. The only thing required is report the bugs hehe

If you don't have a jailbroken phone and don't have a lot of time, then the hassle to get it working is just too great =)

Hello,
I am looking forward to this.
Is there already a working build for jailbroken devices?
I an only see the sources and as I am without a mac most likelly I am not able to build it.

Greetings Peter

Hi Gary,

What's "record series support" to you? You need to help me out here, because I think I don't have that kind of thing in my satellite channels :p

RE: Tvheadend iPhone client - Added by gary tan over 3 years ago

hi luis, think its only working for uk stuff. See here or more info.

Basically unlike auto record it will record new episodes only. In the web interface if i click on a programme,if a program has series link i see record series instead of autorec in the bottom right hand corner of the pop up window. So would be nice if same thing happened with your app.

See attached photo of what i see with a programme that has series link with your app. It would be great if instead of saying autorec for programmes that have this series link info that it says record series. If a programme does not have series link then this series link line does not appear.

RE: Tvheadend iPhone client - Added by Luis Fernandes over 3 years ago

definitely doable. I just need a test case so I can see how that works =)

if you want to help me test this, dm me by twitter @zipleen or IRC

meanwhile I added a ticket for this https://github.com/zipleen/tvheadend-iphone-client/issues/96

RE: Tvheadend iPhone client - Added by Luis Fernandes over 3 years ago

I was going through the javascript code, and it appears that "autorec" and "record series" is actually doing the same command, the only thing that changes is the button name. Meaning, if you hit "autorec" it will actually do "record series" if the program has this serieslink property.

Can you confirm that to me? Because if this is the case, it's only a visual thing: I only need to change the text from autorec to "record series" :p
