Description James Chew 2019-07-18 05:22:09 UTC
I enabled the External: XMLTV EPG Grabber. This should create a socket at /etc/tvheadend/epggrab/xmltv.sock

When using OpenRC, the /etc/tvheadend/epggrab/xmltv.sock is created.

When using systemd, the following issues are encountered:
1. /etc/tvheadend/epggrab/xmltv.sock is NOT created.
2. /run/tvheadend/tvheadend.pid file is NOT created.

Logs as follows:

Comment 1 James Chew 2019-07-18 05:36:21 UTC
The /etc/tvheadend/epggrab/xmltv.sock can be created when I start tvheadend from the command line (hence the problem is when it's started as a systemd service):

Comment 2 James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2019-08-04 11:43:37 UTC
I don't use systemd on Gentoo and I only run tvheadend on one system that isn't capable of running systemd at all. I also don't use XMLTV. I'd therefore be very grateful if you could suggest a fix that works for you.
Comment 3 James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2019-08-04 11:45:51 UTC
Actually if I had to guess, it's the RestrictAddressFamilies entry in the unit file. It should include AF_UNIX.

systemd service file for tvheadend
Comment 5 James Chew 2019-08-06 06:48:45 UTC
I tried a few options, but only managed to get the xmltv.sock file when I recreated the tvheadend.service file as attached.
Comment 6 James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2019-08-10 09:03:57 UTC
That's completely different to what we have now, even right down to the Type. Can you start with what we have and remove the lines one at a time? I would start with RestrictAddressFamilies.

Yes I started with that; deleted all the lines that I felt would have made a difference, specifically:
DevicePolicy=closed
DeviceAllow=char-DVB rw
DeviceAllow=char-drm rw
RestrictAddressFamilies=AF_INET AF_INET6
ProtectSystem=yes
ProtectHome=yes
NoNewPrivileges=yes

And yet, that did not solve the problem. I.e. after starting tvheadend
/etc/tvheadend/epggrab/xmltv.sock is missing
/run/tvheadend/tvheadend.pid file is missing

Thus, I ended up taking the developer's systemd service file, modified from there and it works.
