TvhClient will enable your iPhone or iPad to easily perform your TVHeadend common daily tasks and allow you to watch your channels on your device.

TvhClient allows you to remotely control the TVHeadend server - a DVB receiver, DVR and streaming server.

The app relies on real-time data it retrieves from the TVHeadend server allowing you to accomplish several tasks, including:
* view the channel's streaming video in-app or launch a third party video application,
* list channels,
* view channel's EPGs,
* search by program title,
* start, schedule and playback recordings (DVR),
* check alternative times for any show scheduled,
* view the log / status of the server
* browse your muxes and playback any of them without a channel

Supported Tvheadend versions: 3.2 and up.
Transcoding is supported in TVHeadend 4.x versions using TVHeadend's profiles.

** For support (or crashes!) contact me at or join

The app supports sending video stream url directly to: VLC, Oplayer, Buzz Player, GoodPlayer, Ace Player, nPlayer and remotely to Kodi (TvhClient does not support passwords in webinterface!). If you know other apps that work well with TVHeadend and want them added, contact me via e-mail.

vastly improved


This has now quickly become my go-to app for watching live and recorded tv. Seems to have got a lot more usable in the last few months (Oct 2017).

Better but can I have full screen?


Works much better now, but I can’t seem to get full screen without the status bar of iOS 11 in the way across top of display. This is on iPad Pro 9.7.

Brilliant start

Why do this Adobe?

A little rough around the edges but some really top notch functionality. It's especially nice to be able to search the epg for titles, quite far in to the future, and set a future recording that way. Absolutely worth a try.
