Unable to locate package tvheadend

Added by Michael Fuselier over 2 years ago

OK, guys I am not new to linux, but new installing from the command line.
I have tried every stinking repository I can find. Always get the same error.
I am using a raspberry pi 3, with the latest rasbian 2017-11-29-raspbian-stretch, and an instructable.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-TV/ for directions.
Here is my sources.list file.

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free $
  1. Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
    #deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi

#deb https://dl.bintray.com/tvheadend/deb/dists/ wheezy release

#deb https://dl.bintray.com/mpmc/deb jessie stable
deb http://apt.tvheadend.org/stable wheezy main

You can see I've tried many sources, but I just keep getting nowhere. So my latest modification to my sources gives me this error.

Don't know about repos, but you can use dpkg to install deb packages you have downloaded.

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by saen acro over 2 years ago

wget https://dl.bintray.com/djbenson/deb/pool/unstable/:tvheadend_4.1-2328~gca5f094_armhf.deb
dpkg -i tvheadend_4.1-2328~gca5f094_armhf.deb

Other question why so old package used.

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by Michael Fuselier over 2 years ago

I just don't know what I am doing I guess. I just want to get it working. Newer is better, I'm sure.
Guess that's just the tutorial I found suggested. You have a better compatible package I should use?

OK, I've made some progress. Switched to tvheadend.org sources. But now I get this error.

To install debug, first install normal package.

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by Mark Clarkstone over 2 years ago

Also for my repo it's "raspbianstretch" not "jessie".

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by Michael Fuselier over 2 years ago

Mark, if you are referring to the mpmc repo, I changed it and this is what I got.

Did you install the gpg key before updating sources?

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 379CE192D401AB61

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by Michael Fuselier over 2 years ago

I wasn't sure since I did most of that yesterday, or early today, so I did for sure this time, similar message after the apt-get update, although a bit different, and the same message after the sudo apt-get install tvheadend.

It's "raspbianstretch" (note the p) not "rasbianstretch"

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by Michael Fuselier over 2 years ago

Well, you had me. I thought for sure that would fix the problem. I mean that was a bonehead mistake for sure.
So I changed it first to "raspianstrech" and of course that didn't work. I swear my eyes. lol
But I caught that and fixed it while preparing this email. But even with the proper spelling "raspbianstretch" I am still having issues.

See for yourself.

Awesome, I am so glad I was just holding my mouth wrong. Thanks for not being an ass. Some people! Anyway, it worked. Thanks, and stand by for more questions if you don't mind. It's hard to find someone to help with these things, so if your game I will check back in if need be with items as they come up.

Don't worry, it happens to us all. Glad to hear you got it working!

Sure no problem, I (and I'm sure whoever else follows the forums) will be more than happy to help if we have the answers. :)

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by Michael Fuselier over 2 years ago

OK, so I got it to scan most of the channels in my area, but on the ones that are playing, from inside the browser, the audio plays but the video shows up and then just freezes. Any suggestions?

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by saen acro over 2 years ago

webtv-vp8-vorbis-webm inside browser?
html5 supported in-browser player used

RE: Unable to locate package tvheadend - Added by Michael Fuselier over 2 years ago

OK, I mis-spoke. It's not playing from inside the browser. When I go to the TVHeadend interface in the browser, and click the Channel / EPG tab, and then click the Play this Stream button to the left of any of the channels it scanned, it downloads something that looks like a URL file, that I was trying to open in VLC. It does open and plays audio, but I was just getting a screen shot of the video. I managed to get the url over to a Macintosh on my network and that VLC is actually playing video and audio with certain settings. So I know that the TVHeadend is working Now I just need to get it working with the version of Kodi I have on my Pi and the Mac's and PC's on my network., without the funky copying and pasting urls into VLC adjusting settings, and having to enter a username and password. Anyone have a good tutorial link that should help for a newbie?
