I started up a wiki page for Tvheadend. Input and help is welcome.

Package still builds fine in clean chroot without wget. Config is set up so all dependencies should come from installed packages instead of allowing the build to download any of them. It doesn't appear anything new has been added, so the build should never call wget.

wget cannot and will not be part of base-devel. You can make changes (hdhomerun) yourself in PKGBUILD. Just because one person wants it different, everyone else should always change it. Create your PKGBUILD, save and use it again and again, I'll do it that way. greeting

Could you please add wget as makedep? :) Seems it isn't part of base-devel and it is required to build this package.

Would still be great if you could make hdhomerun dep optional, as I try to free as much resources as possible using a rPi.

I hat to add the "-C" switch in /etc/conf.d/tvheadend in order to be able to login when started via systemctl for the first time. Could you add this switch to the package? Also implicitly setting the "-6" switch there made ist unusable for me, since I have it disabled, so at least mentioning this anywhere would be nice.

Can Somebody please remove the Out of Date Flag, cause it isn't and it is just annoying seeing it popup at every upgrade.

Why has this been flagged?

@troydwill The comments here mention what needs to be done. The package isn't out of date.

it should be noted that Tvheadend runs with the "hts" user using this package. That means if you try to run it with the -C flag you need to make sure its running with the same user. TBH i think this should be the default.

"If no user account exists then create one with no username and no password. Use with care as it will allow world-wide administrative access to your Tvheadend installation until you create or edit the access control from within the Tvheadend web interface."

Arch packages never activate themselves on installation automatically like they do on Debian for example. So explicit action is required to have it exposed like described. The alternative is to create a superuser file in the configuration directory that looks like this:

{ "username": "supersuser", "password": "verysecurepassword" }

So you either do that prior to starting it or start with the first-run flag anyhow. I am not sure if the superuser config file still works when using this flag though, so that might need to be checked first to make the more paranoid people among us happy.

"If you build Tvheadend from source and just execute it, it won’t let anyone in."

You need to start tvheadend with "-C" the first time.

The administration web page at http://localhost:9981 after install is requiring a username and password. What are they?
