Back from long hiatus

Unread postby aberto2k » Thu Aug 18, 2016 10:49 am

Hi there,

I've been away from the community since my last project with my U3 - a Linux PC for my son. Previous projects included an arcade cabinet, and NAS Server.

Now my son has upgraded to a laptop and I want to take this U3 and make it a set-top box to replace the Wii my wife uses to watch Netflix (which isn't doing well) and eventually Tablo for watching my antenna feed.

I've installed Pocket Rocket, but nothing seems to work, the apps are all out of date and I'd like to update them but I can't. I know very little about Android beyond having it on my phone.

Can anyone recommend something - otherwise I'm going to have to rethink this.

Regards,

Aberto2k

Try Voodik's Android CM images.
They are STICKY in this U3 Android sub-forum.

Frankly speaking, U3 Android images has not been updated well since it retired last year.

I was afraid of that.

How about TVheadend? Using this I'm hoping to transform my old U3 into a DIY Tablo.

Am I dreaming in technicolor? U3 running linux and TVheadend with a USB tuner?

Question is - which USB tuner?

Will the U3 also be playing the htsp streams?

I'm not sure what HDTC is (isn't it a camera feed format?), but I plan to only stream what comes out of the OTA - about 17 channels; most 720p HD and a smattering of SD and no DVR.

Basically a DIY Tablo or HDHomeRun that will stream those channels to my HTPCs running Kodi.
