i am running an Odroid C1+ with DietPi 143

i am trying to get tvheadend backend working, but no adapter is being found, i read there is native support for PCTV 461e from kernel 3.14 and up, the current C1+ kernel in dietpi is 3.4

so can i update the kernel in dietpi? if so, how? is it an easy process?

thanks

Kernel updates are provided in apt-get upgrade, via Meveric's repo.

If you have 3.4 installed, this would be newer than 3.14, and therefore, should include native support that was made available in 3.14.

Unfortunately, i have no experience with tvheadend backend devices. I'am unable to assist you with this at this time.

3.4 was released 2012 and 3.14 was 2014

addition
sorry, C1+ is using 3.10.104, my OrangePi Plus is using 3.4.113

Cant believe I wrote that, couldn't be more wrong, apologies.

It looks like the current Odroid C1 kernel, as provided by HardKernel (which is what Meveric, and therefore DietPi uses), is 3.10:
https://github.com/hardkernel/linux/tree/odroidc-3.10.y

Although not helpful, the Odroid C2 is 3.14:
https://github.com/hardkernel/linux/tre ... dc2-3.14.y

I very much doubt HK will invest in upgrading the C1 kernel (you'd need to ask). Possibly the C2/XU4.
