I am back again. I did some progress. I bougth this stick:
that OSMC recognizes immediately. Then I removed PVR Client (previously installed for IPTV) and installed TVHeadend using OSMC Store. Then I did the following:
From browser I connected <my raspberry ip:9981
Configuration->DBB Inputs->TV Adapters
3 I clicked on Device and I checked the Enabled checkbox.
Then I created a Network going on Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Network
I created a new Network giving “Italy” as name. I left Initial Scan selected.
6 Then Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Mutex and I did a Force Scan.
7 In Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Services I found all the Italian TV Channel, here you can remove the one you are not interested.
From System->Add on activate the plugin TvHeadend Client.
In the main menu of kodi appear the TV menu. You can select it and choose all the channel detected by the DVB-T device.
My only problem now is the following. Whenever I start KODI I can watch TV only if the USB dongle is connected before the startup. If I plug it after boot and I try to watch TV a message appears saying that there is no device available. How can I solve this issue?
My problem is that I do not have the dongle always connected (at least not for the moment) but sometime I add it later after a boot when I decide to record a TV program.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Should I expect some quality loss when I use my TV cable with USB stick + TVHeadend compared to the standalone TV? I noticed that at the very beginning the quality is not so high but later it become good. Why this happen?
My main goal to have DVB-T + TVHeadend is the possibility to record TV program. Now it seems the only way I can do it is through TV guide. Now my understanding is that when I activate it, the guide is populated asynchronously. Am I correct?
But I only see TV program for today. Is it possible see the whole week? If I want to schedule a TV program for tomorrow, should I use a timer?
