Official Apt Repository¶
After a significant break from using our official repository, due to Adam Sutton no longer being actively involved, this has finally be restored. With some slight alterations. There will still be 3 repositories, however the meanings has changed:
- http://apt.tvheadend.org/release - This will contain the latest official / stable release.
- http://apt.tvheadend.org/stable - This will contain a nightly build from the latest release branch. It will pick up fixes in prep. for the next release.
- http://apt.tvheadend.org/unstable - This will contain a nightly build from the development branch (master). It will contain the bleeding edge, but could be potentially unstable.
Support Distro's / Platforms¶
- Precise (12.04) - i386 / amd64
- Trusty (14.04) - i386 / amd64

If you require builds that are not currently supported see https://github.com/tvheadend/tvheadend-build#looking-for-tvheadend-builds
Before you can use the repositories you probably want to import the GPG signing key:
curl http://apt.tvheadend.org/repo.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
You will then need to add which ever repository you feel is most appropriate, for example if you want to be cautious and have a reliable system:
sudo apt-add-repository http://apt.tvheadend.org/release sudo apt-get update
Note: if you install more than one repository you will only ever get packages from the one holding the most recent version number, so the order of priority would be:
unstable > stable > release
You can easily remove a repository though, so should you suddenly come over all crazy and want to live on the edge:
sudo apt-add-repository -r http://apt.tvheadend.org/stable sudo apt-add-repository http://apt.tvheadend.org/unstable sudo apt-get update
