Tv Hat & Tvheadend on raspbian on Raspberry Pi Zero W

Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:44 am

Hi,
I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W.
I installed latest version of Raspbian stretch (2018-10-09) on it and I have installed Tvheadend 4.2.4 to make work the tv hat.
The problem is that the adaptors folder in Tvheadend is empty (missing drivers or something similar?).

The same procedure works on a Raspberry pi 3.

Where am I wrong? Thank you.

Have you added

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=rpi-tv
into /boot/config.txt and rebooted?

Can you see these files in /dev/dvb/adapter0?

Code: Select all

pi@ulysses:/dev/dvb/adapter0 $ ls -la
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     100 Oct 24 20:10 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root      60 Oct 24 20:10 ..

Fixed, I bought a GPIO header (the version not soldered) and it was just a pin of GPIO non properly connected.
Now the raspberry zero see correctly the hat.
Thank you.
