In the DVB adapter settings, I have both cards of the homerun showing, xxxxxx-0 and xxxxxx-1. I did the setup for services on channels for 0. DO I need to do it again for 1?

Not needed, provided it's enabled in the tree will be used automatically.

In other words, once the channels are named and mapped to EPG for one tuner, the program will dynamically choose between the two tuners at recording time?

Correct, certainly for 3.9.xxx builds.

Actually I'm using 3.4 from the stable repo. There seems to be no buidls for trusty in the beta repo.

until someone tells me how to re-compile the Linux Kernel with the DVB Headers. You'll have to use 10.04.4.

Her is how I made it work on Ubuntu 14.04:

Code:
#as root
   apt-get install git
   cd /usr/src/
   git clone https://github.com/h0tw1r3/dvbhdhomerun
   apt-get install dpkg-dev cmake dkms
   apt-get install hdhomerun-config libhdhomerun-dev debhelper
   cd dvbhdhomerun && dpkg-buildpackage -b
   cd ..
   dpkg -i dvbhdhomerun-dkms_0.0.16+nmu3_all.deb
   dpkg -i dvbhdhomerun-utils_0.0.16+nmu3_amd64.deb

The trick is finding Jeffrey Clark's git repro where he did all the hard work of making a working package - it has been working like a charm with tv-headend here for a month now without a single glitch.

I keep getting truncated recordings. Is there a log I can view somewhere to see what happened?

This is a stretch, but I am using VMWare player with Ubuntu 10.04.4 86 and everything goes through great but I never see the hdhomerun in tvheadend. When I try to restart dvbhdhomerun-utils service it says not valid, but when I install it again, it says it is already installed. Any ideas where I might have went wrong?

Update: I believe it is a kernel issue. What kernel is required? dvbhdhomerun-utils says Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.

I followed this guide and some other posts to set-up TVHeadend on an Ubuntu 14.04 server and it works fine. Manual recordings work great, and the networks come in fine with accurate EPG listings. However, there is one fatal flaw that I am trying to get help on -- if I add recordings to the auto recorder thing, it always fails the recording with the error "Time missed". Does anyone have any experience with this? Tried googling and put an issue in at TVH's website but thought I'd post here too since I followed this guide and everything else works.

HTPC: Asus P8H61-M | Intel i3 2100 | 4GB DDR1333 | Seasonic X650 | Lian Li PC-C37 | Samsung 470 64GB | Panasonic TC-P50S30 | Denon AVR-1712, Jamo S606 HC3 5.0 | Logitech Harmony One
Server: Asus P8H77-I | Intel Pentium G620 | 8GB DDR1600 | Seasonic X460 | Lian Li PC-Q08B | 3 x WD Red 3TB, 3 x WD Red 4TB

The steps are the ones posted by Bombjack

The instructions on the original post are still good but those who are currently configuring this setup on the last version of ubuntu (14.04 - Trusty) must compile the HDHomeRun add-on for TVheadend from scratch as already suggested by BombJack:

#as root
apt-get install git
cd /usr/src/
git clone https://github.com/h0tw1r3/dvbhdhomerun
apt-get install dpkg-dev cmake dkms
apt-get install hdhomerun-config libhdhomerun-dev debhelper
cd dvbhdhomerun && dpkg-buildpackage -b
cd ..
dpkg -i dvbhdhomerun-dkms_0.0.16+nmu3_all.deb
dpkg -i dvbhdhomerun-utils_0.0.16+nmu3_amd64.deb


The current instructions on the original post instructing to use the PPA (with pre-compiled binaries) will only work for Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) to 13.10 (Saucy). There no binaries currently available for 14.04 (Trusty) at the moment:

Current instructions on page 1 for older Ubuntu versions:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tfylliv/dvbhdhomerun
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dvbhdhomerun-dkms dvbhdhomerun-utils

I hope this will clarify the things for you.
