Description Daniel Becker 2019-09-28 17:45:11 UTC
After the recent update to version 20190621 of the libhdhomerun port, "hdhomerun_config discover" no longer finds my tuners, nor do dependent ports like tvheadend.

Downgrading to version 20180327 of the libhdhomerun port resolves the issue immediately.
Comment 1 Daniel Becker 2019-09-28 17:46:58 UTC
The tuner in question is an HDCT-2US model, in case that might make any difference.

The 20190621 version does discover the tuner just fine on my Ubuntu machine, so it doesn't appear to be a general incompatibility.
Comment 2 Daniel Becker 2019-09-28 18:05:16 UTC
The problem appears to be that release 20190621 is missing a FreeBSD-specific fix; see here:


Interestingly, the commit title for that is "Release 20190625", but it doesn't look like such a release is actually available at downloads.silicondust.com.

Thanks for this. I had been playing with simply switching to using git as the upstream, but I'll use this patch and give them another chance.

I'll have a bit of time to test this later today and fix it up for inclusion in the port patches.

multimedia/libhdhomerun: Add FreeBSD broadcast patch

This adds a FreeBSD specific patch from libhdhomerun git release 20190625, we also bump PORTREVISION to 1.

HDHomeRun discovery has been tested as working with this version against a HDHR5-4DT. The port passes portlint and testport in Poudriere.

  multimedia/libhdhomerun: Backport FreeBSD broadcast patch

  Release 20190621 caused a regression in the ability to discover tuner
  hardware, for example using: hdhomerun_config discover.

  This change backports a commit [1] marked as "Release 20190625" which
  doesn't (yet?) appear to be available/distributed.
