OpenELEC Live TV settings

Sat Sep 22, 2012 8:47 pm

Hello!

I'm really happy because OpenELEC has Live TV and I would like to use it. But there is a little problem, because the add-on for TVHeadEnd doesn't work, even if I try to install .zip version from USB. I built OpenELEC on my computer and I followed this tutorial. Then I installed it with script create sdcard on SD card.

After trying to install other plugins, I figured out, that I can't install them. What can I do - is there any solution?

Thanks!

AFAIK
The RPI can't decode TV live yet.
it was a codec limitation... only now you can buy the extra codec....
so maybe soon the option will show up in xbmc.
but for now all plugins are disabled because they require more resources then the Pi can provide.

I don't believe this is true. I haven't tried myself but this suggests it can work:

Yes, I'm also not sure if this is true. This man says that the plugin must work.

I will give another try to OpenELEC, but I will transfer .zip package to SD card and we'll see. Where can I look at OpenELEC's error log?

I found the solution. You must use other version of OpenELEC - now I'm using r11974.
