Installed osmc on my spare Pi, then I installed samba server and tvheadend server.

Plugged in a spare tv dongle and in less than 2 mins i was scanning in channels via my tv aerial.

Going to play a bit more with it tomorrow :oops:


Don’t know if it will replace my hdhomerun.

To configure tvheadend once installed via the “my osmc” option is really simple.

Go to your ip address of the Pi eg 192.168.x.x:9981

Username: osmc
Password: osmc

Looks like this

Once all installed, reboot the Pi and go to the web interface.
