Migrating from mythtv to tvheadend
April 30, 2016 Leave a comment
Over the years i have become increasingly annoyed at the various instabilities with mythtv when used with Kodi. Live tv often would lock up the client even after i moved kodi to separate machine. And the speed at which it would load a live channel was never that good. I never used most of the features in mythtv.
I think mythtv developers should be focused more on being a wonderful dvr and less on all the weird addons like music bluray player voip etc. I think it would be good if they also made kodi support a priority
I have transitioned to tvheadend running on a pi 2. And quite frankly it is amazing. So simple to setup and its obvious they have focused on kodi support a lot.
I have exported 750gb of tv for my sons and will make it available in kodi until tvheadend builds up a good back log of recorded shows
i now have a pi 2 for tvheadend, pi 3 for kodi and an old pi b for a ufdb squid kids internet filter.
My old ubuntu box that used to host mythtv is going into the workshop 🙂
