I am new-ish to linux.
I am trying to install on kubuntu.
I created a text file named (unofficial-hdhomerun-dvr-repo.list) and placed it in "/etc/apt"
When i run (sudo apt-get install hdhomerun-record) i get an error.
Unable to locate package hdhomerun-record

Any ideas what i have done wrong?
thank you

Did you run `sudo apt-get update`? That refreshes all available pacakges in your cache. You will see apt complain about the unofficial repo not being secure or something, you can ignore that error. Once it's done run your command to install hdhomerun-record.

thank you for the reply,
yes i did "apt-get update" still did not work.
same error.
after searching the forum i found the linux manual install and managed to get it working that way.
not sure why it would not find the package.
thanks

I have not (re)verified the process, but I think you missed the part about putting the file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ but in any case, all is well that ends, so if you have a working install, great.

Note: A change in the initial URL for the file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d file (which is recommended for future AWS changes) was made in the initial setup instructions. There is no need to change existing setups.
