Linux

Information and resources for users of Linux-based operating systems.

While there is not a “normal” HDHomeRun view app for linux-based operating systems, SiliconDust has an official Kodi add-on that replicates most of the functions and the general interface and feel of a normal app. Linux users can use Kodi + the HDHomeRun Kodi add-on just as they would a traditional HDHomeRun app.

For information on installing the Kodi add-on, see: Kodi.

For installing the DVR storage software on a linux-based operating system, see: Linux DVR.

  1. Extract both libhdhomerun and hdhomerun_config_gui to the same directory, e.g.:

    directory/libhdhomerun
    directory/hdhomerun_config_gui
  2. From the hdhomerun_config_gui directory, run:

    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install

During the ./configure step, if you receive an error about gtk+-2.0 not being installed, you will need to install it using your distribution’s package management system. On most Debian-based distributions, including Ubuntu, use the following command:

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev

If you receive an error stating hdhomerun_config_gui: error while loading shared libraries: libhdhomerun.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory when attempting to run hdhomerun_config_gui, run the following:

sudo ldconfig
