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

How come with this built I don't see the "EPG Grabber Modules" after the "EPG Grabber" tab? I have to fake this file /home/hts/.hts/tvheadend/epggrab/config to make my external tv_grab_file work (but those EPG Grabber Modules" don't pop up). Doesn't this file and others get populated after compiling? Does anyone have this issue of not getting this file: /home/hts/.hts/tvheadend/epggrab/config ?

The answer is in this thread I had opened on tvheadend website:

Just a small note: while upgrading from tvheadend to tvheadend-git, it seems that the user "hts" is deleted and then re-created. This will cause a change of UID, which will cause problems if a configuration is desired to be re-used (granted, moving from stable to git version might cause problem, but I wanted to give it a shot in any case).

Both /home/hts and your recording folder(s) ownerships need to be re-set manually.

Regarding the disappearance of "linuxtv-dvb-apps" as an Arch Linux package. I can't tell when that happened, but I do see that there was an AUR package of the same name created four days ago (6th) here:

The comment there indicates it's broken in a couple of places, but there are workarounds. So for those that may still need it, there's some hope.

I removed dependency on linuxtv-dvb-apps since it was removed from the arch repos from some reason. I don't see any missing features without it, but I also live in an ATSC country, so let me know if this causes problems.

@davep: I did #1 to allow makepkg to manage all the downloads. For similar reasons, I disabled all the "static" dependencies so instead of make downloading and building them, the (possibly already installed) system versions will be used.

#2: I have removed libmfx and qsv flags, but nvenc is still there in configure.

A couple of changes now we are on the 4.3 development version:

1. It is no longer necessary to download the dvb scan tables separately. The Makefile will download them if --enable-dvbscan is specified (the default).

2. These configuration options are no longer used: libmfx_static, qsv, nvenc.

I manually call makepkg and keep the files around for subsequent builds. If doing so, the copying of the dvb-scan-tables repository fails after the first build because git creates the object files as read-only (444) which makes "cp -a" fail with a permission denied error.

cp has a force flag that will make cp remove the file if it can not write to it before copying it over again. So i would suggest to change the call to cp to include the force flag like this: 'cp -af "dvb-scan-tables" "${_dvbscan}"'

Would it be possible to add 'aarch64' as a supported arch to the PKGBUILD? That would make it possible to automate updates of this package via pacaur for people like me running it on such a system.

Thank you in advance!

PSA, without -C tvheadend does not create the default wide access entry.
