Hdhrchan2myth - Import Channels from HDHomeRun to MythTV

This small script can be used to add channels to MythTV from an HDHomeRun device.  It has been tested with only MythTV v30 on Ubuntu with an HDHomeRun Prime.  Also, it works with one HDHomeRun device and has not been tested with multiple HDHomeRun devices on the same network.

Before using this script, the channels must already be shown in the channel lineup by accessing the HDHomeRun's internal web page interface.  Scanning for channels and viewing the channel lineup can be done by opening a web browser and visiting http://my.hdhomerun.com.

Usage instructions:
  1. Download the latest release from https://github.com/heyted/hdhrchan2myth by clicking on releases.
  2. Extract hdhrchan2myth.py, and move the file to the /tmp folder (not a tmp folder in the home folder).
  3. Right click on the file, left click on properties, left click on the permissions tab, and select "allow executing file as a program."
  4. Open a terminal and enter the following:
    • sudo su mythtv
    • /tmp/hdhrchan2myth.py
    • exit
  5. All downloaded files can be deleted.
