tvheadend on Odroid N2 with Hauppauge WinTV-dualDD


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm tearing my hair out. Help would be much appreciated. Initially, I installed Armbian on an SD card and successfully installed tvheadend and got the tuner to scan successfully. Great, or so I thought. Time to build my 'real' system on a eMMC. After many repeated builds, I cannot, for the life of me, get a successful scan.  I'm using the 'predefined' network (UK Sutton Coldfield) which worked just fine before. I am running Armbian_20.08.1_Odroidn2_focal_current_5.8.5_desktop.

Edit (can only post one per day).

JMMC, what did I do different? Probably the order of things. I initially tried to install tvheadend via armbian-config, it didn't do anything. I installed from the repository. Did I do an 'update & upgrade' before that? Can't remember. Did I do an install firmware, full or part (from armbian-config) before or after? You see my point? Many combinations and permutations, tried a few but loosing track. I'll gladly accept your buster option. Thanks.

Want Armbian t-shirt or a cup?

EDIT: No, it is a PPA

Try to do it like this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mamarley/tvheadend-git-stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt build-dep tvheadend
apt-get source tvheadend
cd tvheadend*
sudo apt install fakeroot
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b -rfakeroot -j6

If it fails saying there is no source package, just make sure that you uncomment the line starting with "deb-src" in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tvheadend-git-stable.list

Okay, what did you do different that time versus the last time that didn't work?

 

BTW

If you don't have any problem with using Debian Buster, I can walk you through getting my working setup. I use Buster, my steps for Focal were not tested.

Ok, my apologies for the duplicate posts. I've built tvheadend in Buster, it 'sees' the dongle but doesn't find any channels. I've run w_scan, again, card detected but no channels. To me, looks like the dongle is faulty. Progressing replacement.

Could be simply verified by retrying on a different computer (does not have to be a development board, laptop or similar will do) and see if the issue persists.

Make sure it is not a firmware issue either. For my DVB tuner, even though the kernel recognizes it, I needed to download the firmware for it to work. Maybe ubuntu includes it, but not buster.

 

Check dmesg for firmware missing messages
