So you make your Raspberry Pi 2 to a DVB-C streaming TV device with OpenELEC + Kodi + TVHeadend.

The used Hardware you can find here:

My Blog (german language):


  1. Thanks so much – finding the HTSP client was frustrating me to no end; had no idea to check in Disabled Add-Ons! Thanks!

  2. Wow – so good. 2 things stopped me getting the working the first. First finding the tvheadend add on was awful. Do not know why they have hidden it so much, seems crazy to me.

    And the second thing is configuring tvheadend. It’s remembering to update the dvb adapter info with the network once you have created it.

    I too needed to reboot after doing this to get the stations to be found

    Thanks a llot

      should be possible. Of course it have to be compatible with Linux. Check if there a drivers for the CI Cardslot for Linux.

      Kind Regards,
