Client library for connecting to tvheadend. Reads EPG and recording data


var options = new ClientOptions(){
    Host = "", //required
    Port = 9982, //default 9985
    UserName = "me", //optional
    Password = "myPassword" //optional
var loggerFactory = LoggerFactory.Create(builder => );
var client = new Client(options, loggerFactory);

After connecting client will start receiving data from server (EPG, recordings, ...)

Reading data

All avaiable data are stored on client.Data using ITvheadendData

    public interface ITvheadendData
        ITagStorage Tags { get; } 
        IChannelStorage Channels { get; }
        IEpgEventStorage Events { get; }
        IAutoRecordStorage AutoRecords { get; }
        IDvrEntryStorage DvrEntries { get; }
        event EventHandler LoadComplete;
        bool Ready { get; }
        IReadOnlyCollection<string> ContentTypes { get; }

After reading all data event LoadComplete is fired. All data are stored on appropriate Storage in dictionary using ids.

///example reading Channels
var allChannels = client.Data.Channels.Values;
/// read channel by id
var channel = client.Data.Channels[id];
///read epgEvents for Channel
var events = client.Data.Events.ByChannels[channelId];

When are data changed events are fired

//listen event
client.Data.Channels.ItemAdded += (sender, eventData) => { ...};
