TVHeadend Live Channel for Android TV

Added by Kiall Mac Innes over 4 years ago

Hey all,

We've build a Live Channel add-on for Android TV, it's pretty beta, but would love some wider testing, feedback, and ideally contributors (it's open source ;)). It should work on the Nexus Player, Sony Android TV, nVidia Shield, etc.

The github repo at the end of the post has some screenshots..

Sign up for Beta access:

1. Join the beta community (required!) https://plus.google.com/communities/102705346691784371187

2. Join the beta on Google Play: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/ie.macinnes.tvheadend

3. Download from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ie.macinnes.tvheadend

Code is up at https://github.com/kiall/android-tvheadend

We'll keep an eye on this thread, and the Google play community for any issues, suggestions, rants etc :)

Here's some notable TODOs:

1. We currently require you have a streaming profile called "to" defined in TVHeadend.
2. We plan to move from the JSON API to HTSP.
3. We've seen some cases of the app opening an seemingly endless number of connection to your TVHeadend server, which appears to be a bug in android 5.x triggered by bad connectivity to the server.

Anyone looking to contribute, which can be anything from helping test releases to writing code, please reach out :)

Is this app still under development, or is it completely dead?

Is this pvrlive for the tvheadend backend as well?

RE: TVHeadend Live Channel for Android TV - Added by Linus - about 1 year ago

Yes, it supports many different PVR's including Tvheadend.

I have installed TVHeadend Live Channel app in AndroidTV and linked to TVH in my PC. It can play live TV but it can't find the recorded TV shows in TVH. Restart didn't help.

What am I doing wrong?

I suggest to go for the PVR Live app instead. There is no development going on with this app and it does not work with Android 9 on Shield.
