h3. Usage

First install bintray's GPG key:

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

Select which build type you want and add the repository accordingly:

<pre>
echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/tvheadend/deb DISTRO BUILDTYPE" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
</pre>

Replace DISTRO with the distribution's code name (as quoted in the _Supported Distro's / Platforms_ list).
Replace BUILDTYPE with the desired build type.

> Example:
> <pre>
echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/tvheadend/deb xenial stable-4.2" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
</pre>

Refresh the available packages and install:

<pre>
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tvheadend
</pre>

Note: if you install more than one suite you will only ever get packages from the one holding the most recent version number, so the order of priority would be:

<pre>
unstable > stable-4.2 > stable
</pre>

h3. Help!

*Where are the builds for my distro/arch?*
At the moment the Doozer build system only has support for a limited number of build targets. New targets will be added as soon as possible. If you're impatient you may build your own packages.

*What happened to nightly builds?*
They're no longer being provided. packages are now built on the fly once a commit to the branch has been pushed.

*Is there an Ubuntu PPA?*
Not an official one, but there is one provided by Michael Marley that provides *unstable* packages for Artful (untested), Zesty, Yakkety, and Xenial - amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el.

You can install it by doing the following:

* Add the PPA to your system:
<pre>sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mamarley/tvheadend-git</pre>

* Update your packages.
<pre>sudo apt update</pre>

* Install
<pre>sudo apt install tvheadend</pre>

If you experience issues with this PPA please contact Michael on "Launchpad":https://launchpad.net/~mamarley.
