TV Hat - Multiple Recordings

I have series recordings set-up on TVHeadend and on Sunday I was recording one film on ITV2 which started at 20:00 and went onto 22:00, and another programme on ITV3 which ran from 21:00 to 23:00. Both programmes seem to have recorded perfectly despite the 1 hour overalap? I had assumed you would ne...

I've had no issues with HD. We use the Crystal Palace transmitter.

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

Unless you are in a strong signal area you may struggle to get HD channels. It would be good to hear how you get on with it though. Would be great to have a solution for when I'm away from home.

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

This is the sort of feedback, presumably because people are using the web browser player. The changes to the notes you are making will make it much clearer.

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

Interesting. I had to enter 'Y' to confirm installation, then 'y' to confirm from untrusted sources.

Anyway, I hope the updated version helped.

Thanks Dom, I'm using Chrome. Note for other users. This only worked with installing the version from the TVHeadEnd website.

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

Dom,

Any idea why I get perfect playback from the browser with HD streams (BBC1 HD for example). Are they using an encoder built into the browser?

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

Hi Hippy Yes it only works with a clean install of Raspian (at least that was my findings). The install does error if you already have (or have ever had) the standard version installed. I just tried a standard uninstall then went for fresh install as I find it easier (especially as I use Raspian Lit...

Thanks James. That will be useful. Hope the TV Hat gets added soon to that documentation tree.

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

Hi James, Thanks for the reply. I'm not using any special configuration. Just the standard install procedures provided by the foundation. I did do further testing with other versions as detailed in my post, but the warnings and poor playback appear with the standard recommended configuration. This s...

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

Thanks. Can you set up recording within LibreElec?

I'm a little disappointed that this wasn't picked up in the testing phase as it seems to be a commonly reported issue.

Still a fantastic device though!

Raspberry Pi TV Hat Playback Issues

First of all, thank you for such a great device. I have it up and running on my 3+, and I'm using TVHClient on my Android phone to watch live TV and schedule and watch recordings at my leisure. My only issue is when I'm in the web interface (on another computer) and go to the 'Electronic Programme G...

Re: How can I save pictures from USB camera to an external hard driver through Raspberry pi 3?

There is a good tutorial here which would get you started.

You could then set-up a cron job to copy the images to a external drive.

Re: raspbian-stable-main package repository very dated

Related to to above comments is it OK just to add the Debian repository to the end of the current sources.list file rather than create a sources.list.d directory. Also when I add the debian repository I get a message when I try and update that the repository is un-signed. I can proceed by pressing '...

Re: Setting up Arch Linux on a PI 3 (with all wistles and bells)

This worked well for me. Thank you.

The only issue I had was that

Code: Select all

xorg-server-utils 
has been deprecate. So I did some research and used

Code: Select all

pacman -S xorg-apps
Also when you open the GNOME software manager you just get a blank screen.

New Icons in latest release

Hi,

I notice on the downloads page that Raspbian was updated on the 21st June. I see one of the updates is:

* New icons with thinner outlines

I'm away from my Pi for a while so I wonder if anyone who has updated could send a few images?

Not on purpose then as others thought. It's amazing how one can think up good reasons for anything.
