Ubuntu Apt Repository

Tvheadend now maintains its own apt repository (rather than the previous use of launchpad). The repository is actually made up of three separate sub-repositories containing builds of varying stability:

If you had previously added the launchpad PPA, please be sure to remove it (as it no longer exists)

sudo apt-add-repository -r

Before you can use the repositories you probably want to import the GPG signing key:

curl | 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
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 > beta > stable

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
sudo apt-add-repository
sudo apt-get update

Debian Apt Repository

To add the repository to debian, it is a similar process to the above used for Ubuntu, however debian has a more manual way of adding repo's.

Selection of unstable > beta > stable is the same. Your /etc/apt/sources.list contains the repo's you currently have setup. So simply add the required revision in the following format:

deb wheezy main

Change the entry of 'wheezy' to your current release/revision. After adding ensure you have added the GPG signing key (as above with Ubuntu), and then carry out your normal update and install

apt-get update
apt-get install tvheadend

Raspberry Pi

There are now builds for the pi in the apt repository. We've been a bit naughty and just lumped them in main as armhf (which conflicts with standard debian repo's, but blame poor arch naming!). So you can just use the above commands or add:

deb wheezy main

To your sources.list file.
