Issues recording in Tvheadend

Hi Phishfry,

Correct, my OTA device is a PCTV tripleStick 292e (Si2168 Chip), but i have tried with an EyeTV Hybrid stick and HDHOMERUN, but still the recordings are broken. Streaming to Kodi or VLC works perfectly and the same with time shifting. I don't know if i need some special options appended to webcamd? But since my HDHOMERUN gives same result, i can't see this would help :(

I'm using an Intel NUC (NUC6i5SYH) with SSD for OS and second HDD for storage, both using UFS filesystem.

Both webcamd and tvheadend is installed using pkg, but tried from ports as well.

So any suggestions would be great :)

Best Regards
Which version are you using ? I had a lot of trouble with tvh in the past and now found a pretty good and stable version. I'm using HTS Tvheadend 4.1-2130~g55fec0f . Ports still using 4.0.8 which is very old
Hello Sebastian,

I'm using HTS Tvheadend 4.1-v4.1 I managed to change the Makefile from the 4.0.8 port version. How did you get that version? And how did you managed to compile on freebsd? I had a pretty hard time compiling 4.1-v4.1 on freebsd.

It would be awesome if you could share how to compile a recent 4.1 version on freebsd.

Hey cyke SH1986,
I was not able to compile tvh on freeebsd . I'm using bhyve with linux :/ . My problem at the moment is the following.

Maybe someone have an idea how to solve this problem.

What I did to get there .

I know that this should not be done, but we have to . Compile script are written without bsd compatibility .

ln -s /usr/local/bin/bash /bin/bash

cd tvheadend

gmake install clean ...
