Can't find hdhomerun tuners on openSUSE tvheadend install

Added by xt 4t 18 days ago

I installed tvheadend via the package manager on openSUSE Tumbleweed.But I installed the hdhomerun drivers as an extra measure of precaution even though I know that they shouldn't be necessary for TVheadend to find the tuners.However it couldn't find them and under tv tuners under the DVB Inputs.

I need help with allowing tvheadend to discover the hdhomerun quatro dvb-t/dvb-t2 tuner that is hooked up to my network.

And what version of TVH you use?
Is it complied with support for HDHomerun?

All information is in ABOUT page in TVH UI.

I don't know if the tvheadend software is complied with the support for hdhomerun as I installed it from the official openSUSE Repositories.

Too old version

I did try building it from the source but during ./configure they were some errors as well as being unable to use the command make.

This is for Ubuntu
https://tvheadend.org/boards/4/topics/24116
but packages are same, if exist in repo,
else self compilation needed.

As Saen said, what does Toggle details show on the About page?

Have you installed hdhomerun_config_gui and/or libhdhomerun ?

Can their GUI program see the tuners?

Have you asked on the opensuse forum or mailing lists about upgrading the version of TVH available for TW?

On another Debian install I have of tvheadend i didn't even need to install the drivers for tvheadend to discover the hdhomerun tuners.
So I don't believe it should be necessary.

I am in the process of building the tvheadend software.

Just for your information the about page is in the screenshot picture above this comment.

By default hdhomerun is enabled, but in repo you use, some one can disable it
I also disable it, I don't have such device.

While building the package for tvheadend I came across the errors in the screenshot and don't know how to rectify them.

Post text, with PRE button.
Screenshots are not so comfortable to be read.

add this options

make distclean
./configure --disable-bintray_cache --disable-libfdkaac_static --disable-libfdkaac --enable-bundle

"Just for your information the about page is in the screenshot picture above this comment."

NO, just for your information, the information both Saen and I want to see is only displayed after you press the Toggle details link, which both Saen and I have asked you to do and which you have not done.

You haven't answered any of my other questions either, and they might well lead to a solution that doesn't require you to build and maintain a personal version of TVH for evermore.

Good luck.

For the answer to whether i installed hdhomerun_config_gui I installed the non gui version with the package name hdhomerun_config as well as libhdhomerun2.

Answer to your question about whether the gui could detect the tuners
I tested the the gui using hdhomerun_config_gui on my own computer instead of the Server VM instance of which tvheadend was installed in and it could find the tuners.

For the answer for the fourth and final question.I am in the process of doing that however I currently cannot log into openSUSE Forums at forums.opensuse.org

last line is what is used

so you need to do

make distclean
./configure --disable-bintray_cache --disable-ffmpeg_static --enable-bundle
make -j$(nproc)

Sorry that above toggle details page is from when I reinstalled tvheadend from the official openSUSE repositories to show what the toggle details gave me.

RE: Can't find hdhomerun tuners on openSUSE tvheadend install - Added by xt 4t 16 days ago

I just use openSUSE out of personal preference but once Rocky Linux is ready I intend to move tvheadend onto that instead.

In addition to this I am in the process of emailing openSUSE for them to update their tvheadend version as well as to ask if they can enable support for such as ffmpeg and hdhomerun in their build.

I stll not see good RPM distro witch work with multimedia without problems.

sudo zypper install libavfilter-devel ccache

solve part of problems

RE: Can't find hdhomerun tuners on openSUSE tvheadend install - Added by xt 4t 16 days ago

I tried your installing those packages but unfortunately it came up with another error.

So i am going to wait till i hear back from the forums on openSUSE about the distribution tvheadend package and if they will be able to make some of the changes I have proposed.

However I will still check here to see if there any thing I can do.

Thanks for the help saen acro and Dave H.
