How to set up TVHeadend in Portainer

  • Hello from germany,

    i have yesterday my NAS completly ne installed from scratch. now i´m stucking on the new features in OMV, especialy 'Portainer'

    I'm trying to install TVHeadend to use my TVCard hardware. Here you can see how fare i´ve become. My Problem is the "optional" arguments. I created the 2 directorys for config and recordings, but i´m getting a falure response

    error message:

    Deployment error Error response from daemon: create path to data: "path to data" includes invalid characters for a local volume name, only "[a-zA-Z0-9][a-zA-Z0-9_.-]" are allowed. If you intended to pass a host directory, use absolute path

    The other Optional argument withe the RUN_OPTS, what i´m suposed to write there?

    I hope anyone can help. I tried to find a tut in the web, but all of them are for the old docker in OMV4. No one is showing portainer.

    Thanks in advance for your time and help. Stay healty and safe.


  • I hope anyone can help

    yeah obvious really you have;

    - path to data:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-XPGNVMe1TB/NVMe1TB/TVHeadend/config

    - path to recordings:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-XPGNVMe1TB/NVMe1TB/TVHeadend/recordings

    it should be

    /srv/dev-disk-by-label-XPGNVMe1TB/NVMe1TB/TVHeadend/config :/config

    /srv/dev-disk-by-label-XPGNVMe1TB/NVMe1TB/TVHeadend/recordings :/recordings

    red = host blue = container

    hence your error; outside -> inside

    Raid is not a backup! Would you go skydiving without a parachute?

    thanks for the tipp. T tried:

    Ertror Message: "Deployment error Error response from daemon: invalid mode: /config"

    this solves the problem with the path. Now is there another.


    eployment error Error response from daemon:error gathering device information while adding custom device "/dev/dvb": no such file or directory

    There is a DD Cine S2 V7A card on the board and before under OMV 4 she was running well.

    I'm running on a X11SCA-F mainboard and the TV card is on PCH SLOT2 PCI-E 3.0 X4. Is it possible that, because i have a new NVMe Card on M2-M1 and this two are sharing the connetion, the mainboard wont finde the DVB Card?

  • I don't use it, but if it worked on 4 what setting did you add/use to get it to work because if it worked in the docker plugin it will work in portainer, have a look at the information in linuxserver/tvheadend in docker hub.

  • You maybe need to install the driver on your host system; Look under Driver Installation under Linux.

    It could also be that the device(s) are namend differently and not /dev/dvb and/or /dev/dri.
