    Now plex find my Tv tuner but give error "No channels found. Check that your device receives a signal from the antenna or cable cluster and try to scan again."

    EDIT:
    I trying install with Hauppauge website according to instructions
    But "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:b-rad/kernel+mediatree+hauppauge" command is for some reason not found

    EDIT2: Thanks help... LOL. Finally I got to work "Hauppauge WinTV ‐dualHD TV" in raspberry pi3.

    How did you get it to work?

    Remember, when using the instructions from Hauppauge, you may have to downgrade your kernel. They specifically use kernel 4.4.0-xxx. If you do an apt-get update/install, it may/will suck down a new kernel and make a mess of things. You need to exclude your kernel from being updated.

    To find out which kernel you are running, use uname -a

    $ uname -a
    Linux plex 4.4.0-92201708161632-generic #0+mediatree+hauppauge-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 17 00:28:00 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    The above is from an ubuntu install I am running, but discovered this problem when I moved my DVR setup off my main playback server so I could get better OTA TV reception (my main server is a virtual machine running off a pair of hosts in my basement and the reception there sucks).

    The current Ubuntu 16.04 LTS kernel is a 4.13.x-xxx version and it will not work. The drivers are not built into that kernel. If you run into this problem, I used a GUI to configure grub, the bootloader, and then selected the appropriate kernel to boot from. If you watch the details scroll by on boot, you cant ell which kernel it is loading.

    Hauppauge does not provide a armhf / ARMv7 kernel (as far as I know). So that's not that easy on an RPi.

    Please be more specific :-D US or EU version for example. The US version should work out of the box, the EU version requires the firmware. Moreover, only one tuner will work with the stock kernel. I had to build my own kernel that includes the patches from Hauppauge.
