After been using MythTV for several years – I did find it nessecary to look for something new – so I found TVHeadend. Mainly this software only contains information regarding the TV tuners – and creating a IPTV server – which streams the TV to all clients. In this case The clients is RaspberryPI 3 and a H96Max Android TV.
1x Shuttle Server with Debian Linux
1x TBS6985 QuadCore Tuner for DVB-S/S2
The installation process:
After doing a totally clean install of Ubuntu Linux, I actually changed my kernel to LowLatency as described here – for getting the best performance from the TBS TVcard. The install setup is described here –> https://tvheadend.org/projects/tvheadend/wiki/GoodKernelAndDriver – This perfomance is actually really gods for optimizing the kernel Driver for the tunercard. When running with MythTV – I actually got several driver failures, which is terminated when running lowlatency kernel.
I’ve installeded the software/driver for the TBS 6985 Quad Tuner. The driver install is described here –> https://www.tbsdtv.com/download/index.html?path=13&id=74
The download the latest TVheadend server from here using git
git clone https://github.com/tvheadend/tvheadend.git
Compile the TVheadend software
cd tvheadend ./configure make ./build.linux/tvheadend
That’s it – now you’re ready to start and configure your TVheaded server – just go to http://IP.OF.THE.SERVER:9981
Now you’ll start with setting up your tunercards – and do a scanning of all transponders ( In my case for DVB-S/S2)
configuring the DVB-CA as a Oscam client and setup your Channellist – and afterwards setup the EPG information attaching the EPG to a channel.
