Installed OSMC awhile back using the img Everything has been great since upgrading to 2amp power supply ! HDhomerun ran smooth
I just coudnt keep well enough alone !!! I installed a new skin NEON and by accident the setting button was removed… So had to wipe the card and start over. I found your new wizard that uses windows to self install OSMC to Sd card wow ! I like that finally someone put it all together
Here’s my problem after the new install of OSMC the HDhomerun addon the HD channels now studder and the app goes to restart screen.
Should I go back to the old method and use the img install the older version ?
Depends on what’s causing the stutter.
Logs would help
To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. Please see http://osmc.tv/wiki/general/how-to-submit-a-useful-support-request/ for advice on how to help us.
Do you have the MPEG codec installed on your Pi/Pi2?
Do you mean did I get the password from Raspberry Pi to turn it on. Yes I did
Are you sure that your codec/license is enabled?
SSH to your pie and run:
./vcgencmd codec_enabled MPG2
This should tell you if the license was properly installed.
It’s not showing the logs above, but I’m not sure it it should.
Found the problem ! On the new install some how OSMC turned on Deinterlace Video on the settings of HDhomerun addon. That has never happened before. Thanks guys for helping me
…I use my Hdhomerun expand together with my Raspberry Pi 2 and OSMC, too. HD-Programms don’t stutter although Deinterlancing is on. In my Opinion the HDHomerun Kodi Addon is very buggy.
Because of these Bugs, I made a m3u-File of the channels, wich I can use with Live Tv and the IPTV simple client. This works perfect since a few month.
Do you have a colorful Channel logos and channel guide with that setup ?
Not likely, it’s basically feeding the channel info straight to a plugin, without any overhead. Much faster but no bell and whistle.
The HDhomerun addon they came out with last year sucked. The new one they just added works great ! You also must update your firmware on your Homerun for the new addon to work
…of course I’ ve channel logos. I created a logo-folder, which can be activated in the “Live TV“-settings. For EPG I use the Rytec EPG-downloder, which can be integrated in the IPTV simple client.
In my oppinion all this work better and is more comfortable than the HDHomerun-addon.
Could you point me in the right direction of creating this for my self
No, it´s much easier to create a m3u-file from your HDHomerun for the IPTV Simple Client. You don`t need any tools exept an edititor, like Notepad++ and an Internet Browser.
I´ll explain the necessary steps here, when I´m back home tomorrow.
…enter the IP-adress of your HDHomerun-device in your browser. Then press “enter”: Klick on “channel lineup”.
Then right-click on the first channel-number and select “copy link-url”:
…then open an empty editor (e.g. Notepad++) and put in the first 3 lines the followig:
in line 4 paste your coppied url from the first Channel of the “channel lineup”
Do the same with each TV-Channel, you want to add to your m3u-file (each program needs 4 line)
When ready, safe the editor-file, an rename the file-ending from “.txt” to “m3u”
Use a SSH-program like WinSCP to push the created m3u-file to your Raspberry.
Then select your m3u-file in IPTV simple client:
Make a folder of your Channel-Logos and push the folder with WinSCP to your Raspi, too. The Logos shold have .png-format and a size of 200x200 pixels and they must have exactly the same name like your channel-names. In Kodi you go to “System”-“Settings”- “Live TV”-“Menu/OSD” and select the folder with your channel-logos.
For EPG, I use the Jin`s “Rytec EPG Downloader”. Unfortunately, I know the instructions only from the German Kodi forum. Maybe you find some instructions in this thread or somewhere else.
Of course my Kodi-devices and my HDHomerun have fixed IP-addresses. SiliconDust strongly recommends to connect the backends and the HDHomerun via LAN to the network for HD-Channel streaming.
Cool ! When I get home will give that a try ! Thank You so much !!!
Really want to get my pi’s flawless so the rest of the family are not bitching at me for getting rid of the STB’s
