Tvheadend Backup Settings to another system

Hi guys

Is there an easy way to backup all tvheadend settings (dvb inputs, channel list etc) to transfer to another system.


cp -ar ~/.hts

Stop TVHeadend in My OSMC -> Services first.

Sorry, this is an old thread.

I sudo copied .hts to a usb (ext4 formatted). But noticed the permissions warning & when looking at the copied folder, the permissions/group change (i.e. become root).
Is this going to cause issues? I plan to reinstall osmc and copy back the tvheadend settings.


If it turns out to be an issue you can just change the permissions to match what they were. Here is a random guide I found that looked to be pretty decent at explaining how this works…

sudo cp -a will preserve ownership.
