Once installed use your web browser to navigate to http://[IP-Address]:9981/to set up the server. You can use for the IP Address if your browser and tvheadend are on the same computer, or you can find the TVHeadend icon in your desktop menu.

You can change the listening port and IP with snapctl set tvheadend tvh-http-port=9981 and snapctl set tvheadend tvh-ip= You can also change the port for HTSP streaming connections with snapctl set tvheadend tvh-htsp-port=9982

OSCam's web interface is listening on port 8888 by default. You can change this by editing the file returned by tvheadend.oscam-config. e.g. sudo $EDITOR $(tvheadend.oscam-config). This is an ini-style file where the web interface IP Address and Port are configured as below:

 serverip =

 httpport =

See [the OSCam configuration reference]( for details on the accepted options for the configuration file.
