Tvheadend is a TV streaming server and recorder for Linux, FreeBSD and Android supporting DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C, DVB-T, ATSC, ISDB-T, IPTV, SAT>IP and HDHomeRun as input sources.

Tvheadend offers the HTTP (VLC, MPlayer), HTSP (Kodi, Movian) and SAT>IP streaming.

Multiple EPG sources are supported (over-the-air DVB and ATSC including OpenTV DVB extensions, XMLTV, PyXML).

The Analog video (V4L) is supported directly up to version 3.4. In recent version, the pipe:// source (in IPTV network) might be used to obtain the MPEG-TS stream generated by ffmpeg/libav from a V4L device. https://tvheadend.org

I support this request, with some additional comments & observations:

  1. If your purpose is to record live TV, and you want to do it frequently (or you need to support multiple users who record different channels simultaneously) the SD card may not perform adequately and you might want to consider running TVheadend on a low end desktop PC or NAS device with a built in hard drive.

  2. TVheadend is available as a Docker image, so you could run it on DietPi right now by installing the Docker host from 'DietPi-Software'.


  1. If you want to use the Docker image and TVheadend is the only reason you need DietPi, then Hypriot OS might be a better match for your needs.

I too would like to see TVHeadend in the setup script.

However, my issue is that the fabulous Hauppauge Dual tuner USB devices I've got are only supported in Ubuntu.
