This is my second post regarding putting VDR on a BBB. I was a little
disappointed that no one responded to my first posting.
Since then I have poured over google to find as much as I can about
what I want to do. On Ubuntuforums I found a user that installed VDR
apt-get install vdr <and 4 xine plugins>. I was amazed that it all
installed without any errors and when I rebooted the BBB it was
running VDR automatically.
I updated some of the configuration files but when I did apt-get
install vdr-plugin-hdhomerun (to support my HDHomeRun Dual) I received
that it wanted a newer version of VDR, but the version, 1.7.22 is
newer than the plugin??? I was also hoping to get VDR version 2
because it seems to
have support for HD TV and ATSC that I think I need here in the US. It
seems that recording TV from the HDHR to disk is an easy task, if I
the software to do it.
My question is, does anyone think it is possible to get VDR 2 running
on a BeagleBone Black (running Ubuntu 12.04) with a Silicon Dust
as the tuner?
If the 1.7 branch already works, vdr 2 should works too. The 1.7 branch
is the developer version of vdr 2 and already support hd. vdr 2 was
released a few months ago and should be available on the next release of
your distro (probably 13.10 for ubuntu). I don't know hdhomerun but
there is something called dvbhdhomerun witch is able to make the
hdhomerun appears as a classic dvb device. Perhaps it's what you need.
I'm an experienced user, but new to Linux. I've already spent
several weeks learning and I have no problem learning more to see this
finished. But am I beating a dead horse? Internet wisdom seems to
indicate that MYTHTV is the way to go for the HDHomerun. But I like
everything I have
read about VDR.
I look forward to your suggestions.
