vero 4k+ and osmc DVB-T2/DVB-C TV dongle
back in february i bought, along with a Vero 4K+, the osmc.tv dvb-t2 tv dongle but I managed to install it only recently.
Now I am trying to figure out how to configure it properly. I have experience on linux but I never had a tv adapter before so I read a few posts on this (and other) forums and then I began to configure.
Here is what I did:
install the usb dongle and connected the tv cable.
install TVHeadend Server via the My OSMC Addon → App Store
install the Tvheadend HTSP Client with these connection Settings (I left the default settings in the other sections):
- Tvheadend hostname or ip address: 127.0.0.1
- HTTP Port: 9981
- HTSP Port: 9982
- Username: osmc
- Password: osmc
I verified that the Tvheadend was running and bound to the proper ip:
root@osmc:~# ps -fe| grep -i tvheadend osmc 1132 1 0 21:37 ? 00:00:03 /usr/bin/tvheadend -f -p /run/tvheadend.pid -C -u osmc -g video
root@osmc:~# lsof -itcp:9981 COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME tvheadend 1132 osmc 6u IPv4 12534 0t0 TCP *:9981 (LISTEN)
then I connected to http://osmcservername:9981, logged on as osmc/osmc and I went through the wizard.
I let it search for channels overnight but it didn’t find any.
As you can see in the attached screenshot, I can see only one dvb adapter (realtek) using the web interface.
On the other hand I have a different result if I use w_scan from the command line with tvheadend daemon stopped (I can see also the Sony one):

What I am missing?
Can you give me some pointers?
Thanks a lot,
P.S. please forgive my bad english.
