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:

Support Distro's / Platforms

  • Ubuntu
    • Precise (12.04) - i386 / amd64
    • Trusty (14.04) - i386 / amd64
    • Vivid (15.04) - i386 / amd64
    • Wily (15.10) - i386 / amd64
  • Debian
    • Wheezy - i386 / amd64
    • Jessie - i386 / amd64
  • Raspbian
    • Wheezy - armhf
    • Jessie - armhf

Note: it's the intention to include Sid as well, unfortunately there have been some hiccups getting this working.

Other

If you require builds that are not currently supported see https://github.com/tvheadend/tvheadend-build#looking-for-tvheadend-builds

Usage

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
