How to build for Linux

First you need to configure:

$ ./configure

If any dependencies are missing the configure script will complain or attempt to disable optional features.

Build the binary:

$ make

After build, the binary resides in build.linux directory.

Thus, to start it, just type:

$ ./build.linux/tvheadend

Settings are stored in $HOME/.hts/tvheadend.

How to build for OS X

Same build procedure applies to OS X. After build, the binary resides in build.darwin directory.

Only network sources (IPTV, SAT>IP) are supported on OS X. There is no support for DVB USB sticks and PCI cards. Transcoding is currently not supported.
