I had a go at trying to use Tvheadend for the first time today but have run into a problem.
I followed this guide (more or less) to get Tvheadend setup:
I’ve used an old Raspberry Pi 2 v1.1 that I had lying around along with an old WinTV Nova-T stick.
I installed Raspberry Pi OS (with desktop) and then I installed Tvheadend as per the guide.
Everything went fine and I was able to scan and map 120 channels, and then view those channels in the web interface.
I then connected to the Tvheadend IP address from another PC on my network and I was able to watch live TV as well.
I installed the Tvheadend server from the OSMC App Store on my Vero 4K+ (wired) and configured the Tvheadend PVR client with the correct IP address for Tvheadend on the Pi. When I tried to enable the PVR client I got a message saying that it couldn’t be loaded.
I tried the same on my Vero 4K (wi-fi) and got the same result.
Here is the log from the 4K+:
I removed the Tvheadend server and tried again, but the result was the same:
Here’s the log:
This seems to be relevant, but I’m not sure what to make of it:
IAddonInstanceHandler::CreateInstance: pvr.hts returned bad status "Permanent failure" during instance creation UpdateAddons: Failed to create add-on Tvheadend HTSP Client, status = 5 CAddonMgr: pvr.hts disabled
Basically I’d like to have Tvheadend running on the Pi and my Veros connecting to it to stream live TV.
I should mention that I was able to get live TV working on both Veros once after toggling the PVR client a few times, but it all fell over again after a reboot.
Both Veros are updated to the most current version.
Any help would be appreciated.
