Dumbest Question at SD EVER

Post by Secret_Ingredient » Sun Feb 03, 2019 1:46 pm

I cannot find a set of instructions, a how-to, a tutorial on what to do with the information SD provides.

I will want to subscribe, and would like some help understanding what to do.

FWIW: I have a Kodi, which uses TVHeadend. Searching for Kodi, TVHeadend, "Schedules Direct" I see some apps.

Is there an explanation for what to do somewhere?

Does Kodi have a native channel guide? If so, they should be providing some documentation/instructions.

I believe that TVHeadend uses the XMLTV format to ingest data. There are a couple of different Schedules Direct XMLTV (JSON) grabbers available that produce the data for the ingest.

As I know very little about TVHeadend, I suspect you are going to get better information on the forums that discuss tvheadend (and/or kodi). you can try your searching using the terms "tvheadend schedules direct").

I sort of guess that the general data flow is likely going to be something like this:

SchedulesDirect -> XMLTV_grabber -> TVHeadend -> Kodi (for display)

Each with their own unique setup requirements (and for SchedulesDirect it is mostly just create your account, agree to the usage, and provide payment for the service).

Secret_Ingredient - did you ever sort this out for yourself or do you still need help?
