Raspberry downloads have now moved to buster.
(Linux h3 4.19.50-v7+ #896 SMP Thu Jun 20 16:11:44 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux)

Following the tvh download page instructions for debian yields error on "apt update" :
Hit:1 buster InRelease
Hit:2 buster InRelease
Ign:3 buster InRelease
Err:4 buster Release
404 Not Found [IP: 443]
Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository ' buster Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details

Am I doing something wrong? - i.e. there is a buster build
Or if there is not one - is there a buster build in the offing?

Buster isn't actually released yet, however I'll put in a request to have buster added as a target to on armhf. I'll also set-up a local builder on a Pi when I get the chance (and upload the armhf packages here)

Please bump this issue in a few days if I haven't replied.

Many thanks for your prompt workaround.

Ran stable on latest raspianbuster on pi3b+ with USB-DVB-T2
(Linux h3 4.19.50-v7+ #896 SMP armv7l GNU/Linux)
There were unsatisfieds reported which I manually installed + "apt --fix-broken install"
Seems to work ok - but I have not really used it under stress
Ran stable followed by unstable on latest raspianbuster on pi4b-4G with Sat>ip 8 28.2E tuners
(Linux h3 4.19.50-v7+ #896 SMP armv7l GNU/Linux - also)
There were also unsatisfieds reported which I manually installed + "apt --fix-broken install"
Seems to work - but I cannot really use it because:
Finds all muxes (except last 37) and all services (real fast!) but only Sky Bouquets
i.e No Freesat Bouquets
I have tried at length all the old tricks to deliver them - but no luck.
Looks to me like even with OTA UK Freesat & OTA Freesat (EIT) enabled,
it only uses the slow epg and not the high speed epg
Same on all 3 Freesat home Txprs.

(Deja Vu)

No more.

Your 4.3-1801 package
(with both gigabit Ethernets working per HTTP://
is now fully working for 4 days no hiccups.

Pi4b 4GB raspian lite, headless
with no special cooling,
with on board full gigabit ethernet eth0 used for normal normal LAN e.g. NAS for storage, Kodi clients, etc.
Full gigabit adapter eth1 on USB3 with own private subnet dedicated to satip traffic
(single direct point to point RJ45 to 8 a tuner sat>ip server for satip traffic)

I have switched from osmc to LibreElec which seems more responsive and stable at present.

Now very usable. Thanks to all.
