Sony play tv tuner with xpenology

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I have a hp n54 running xpenology and I have a Sony play tv tuner lying around doing nothing so does anybody know if it's possible to get the tuner working with my setup and tvheadend? I tried connecting the tuner but tvheadend didn't find it so not sure if I'm doing something wrong?

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

Johno

What CPU does is has? It it is an X86 cpu you could try it.

If its ARM, then you're sorta- kind of out of luck.

You will need to install TVHeadend via Debian Chroot as the community package does not include the required kernel modules to access the hardware. Alternatively, I think you can work around this with VideoStation running as this loads the modules.

 

I have had a Sony Play TV tuner working on earlier versions of DSM, but have not tested it recently.

Ok thanks for that. I have no idea how to install to headend via Debian chroot. Any guides anywhere? Will it change/stuff up anything in how xpenology runs currently?

Ok I've downloaded the driver that's recommended to use with the play tv and Linux but I'm unsure where I need to put the driver to use it with xpenology?? Can anyone help? And it says something about updating the kernels? How do I do that with xpenology or is there a version of xpenology I can install with all this done? I'm in the process of backing up my data so I can install another drive and will reconfigure xpenology so happy to do a fresh install if needed.
