This wiki provides user-generated information on the HTTP API for TvHeadend. It was written from the source code of the development version 4.3.

The examples shown were generated from UK Freeview DVB-T / DVB-T2 and Freesat DVB-S / DVB-S2, using a single tuner in each case. Other sources and multiple input devices may give different results.

The documentation is incomplete, and further contributions and corrections are very welcome.


This API is an advanced feature of TVheadend, and the functionality is unstable and liable to change. The software does not completely validate its inputs and incorrect or unexpected calls may result in undesired behaviour.
