First, apologies if this not the place to ask it, but it is Vero 4K related, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
I’ve been trying to get rid of my satellite TV and go OTA (Over The Air for those who don’t understand all the acronyms being thrown around here) only. I’ve managed to get that going, but am having issues with the EPG (Electronic Program Guide - aka the TV Guide) I’m using with TVHeadend which I am using to record shows, etc.
I followed the instructions here and am finding that it doesn’t work that great. Also, as I read further, it seems that something changed on the zap2it.com website that broke this program and it hasn’t been and might never be updated.
Anyway, I’m trying to uninstall what I installed according the above link, but, I’m not a Linux guy and it’s not as easy as clicking on Uninstall in Windows.
Can anyone walk me through undoing what I did to install this in the first place? Does anyone else have advice on setting up OTA recording and detailed EPG info (for North America)?
I don’t understand how to install this. According to the readme…
Install the zap2epg addon in Kodi
Run the addon and setup your lineup
Configure your channel list (add channels to be downloaded)
You can run the program from the addon as a test - not necessary
Setup the zap2epg grabber in tvheadend
Enjoy your new EPG!
I’m sure instruction 1 is to manually copy some or all of the files to my Vero using Putty or WinSCP, but I don’t know where to put them. If I go to my TV and look at available addons from within Kodi (not remotely through an terminal emulator) , there is no zap2*anything* to install.
and the EPG source column has plenty of references to zap2epg, so I guess it worked.
If anyone knows of a simple and straightforward tutorial on properly setting up the current version of TVHeadend, I’d appreciate it. There are plenty of settings that I have no clue what they do and I bet the answer lies somewhere in there.
