Warning: if you have previously used this package, you need to reinstall! Sorry for introducing breaking changes, but hopefully the introduced changes will provide a better experience for most users. :)

Backup your configs (if needed) before performing the upgrade!


  • TVHeadend will be installed to /var/lib/tvheadend instead of /usr/share/tvheadend
  • Package will create the system user tvheadend (member of group video) with config files stored in /etc/tvheadend, it will not use a home directory anymore.
  • By using sysusers.d and tmpfiles.d permissions should be easier to manage.
  • tvheadend.service now includes -C by default.
  • Added some missing deps

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know. :)

I started up a wiki page for Tvheadend. Input and help is welcome.

It now builds without the GCC 12 workaround.

I'd like to suggest adding '!lto' to the options list in the PKGBUILD. tvheadend still does not currently compile with lto enabled: And some users might have it enabled by default in makepkg.conf Thanks.

When I execute:

ldd /usr/bin/tvheadend | grep resample => /usr/lib/ (0xb4a30000)

So please change dependency from libavresample to only depend on ffmepg (no version). Tvheadend migrated already 4 years ago. See:

Then also change configuration to: --disable-libav

I hope this is the right place for this remark - Currently linux 5.19 breaks vaapi transcoding on i915 devices (see I was able to mitigate the issue by downgrading to linux-5.18.x for now.

@gazza_c @willemw Thank you

@francoism90: you may want to update the workaround comment to mention GCC 12.

These warnings, which are now being ignored, will hopefully be fixed upstream.

@gazza_c @willemw I have applied the workaround, it seems to compile. :)

Or change export CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -fcommon" to export CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-error=array-bounds -Wno-error=address"
