A few months ago, we reported on a little-known feature of Kodi that allows users to stream live TV from a Smart TV, Roku, Chromecast, or Chromecast Ultra to their Raspberry Pi or other embedded device like a Chromecast or Fire TV.
While there is no official API for this feature, there are several open source packages that can provide a Raspberry Pi-based, Raspberry Pi HDTV streaming solution.
We’ll start by looking at Kodi, and then go over how to install the Kodi package and install Kodi to the Raspberry PI.
The Kodi source code and instructions can be found on GitHub, and it’s worth checking out the video below for some great instruction.
Kodi can be downloaded here , and if you’re having trouble installing Kodi, you can find instructions on how to add Kodi on the Raspberry Pis Developer Portal.
This guide assumes that you’re using the latest version of Kodi.
If you’re on an older version of the Kodi operating system, be sure to read our guide on how Kodi is built.
