Hopefully u manage to make it work anyway

Might be worth noting that you have posted your qnap question on the Unraid forum. Nobody on this thread mentioned qnap.

Hi
 
I'm trying to setup up the same docker for the same HA android TV support. @mkono87 did you succeed?  I found this video but I've no idea how to run the shell command:
 
 
I have the container setup and it runs 24/7 butnfor some reason after a day or two all the devices disconnect and throw and error in HA. so I haven't done much with it lately but I plan to finally attack it some day. Il check out that video when I get home.

Thanks - would you mind sharing your docker settings please?

 

I ended up installing Hassio in a VM today and I managed to connect to my Android TVs using the hassio adb server, but I need to work out how to trace the states

when I get home if I remeber I can sure dig up something for you. Mind you adb and HA is no longer on unraid but using the same containers.  

 

 

edit... check this out.

Just thought I'd share in case anyone else lands here like I did.

 

I'm traveling for work and not at home, so there was only so much I could do, but based on my limited success, I can shed some light on getting the docker container config set up on unRAID along with the sh command that seems to be a point of confusion in this thread.

 

Thanks to the video posted by @DZMM, I was able to figure this out fairly easily.

I had also initially created the setup.sh script in the /config folder using notepad++, as this is how I frequently do it for Home Assistant, but there were formatting and permission issues (the latter was warned in the video) so I just recreated the file using vi from the container's terminal and presto.

ADB isn't enabled on my TV at home, which is the limitation I mentioned earlier so I get the "No route to host" error, but I'm fairly confident this will work when I get it enabled.

 

Good luck!

@anderbak thanks for this as I didn't know how to run the script command.  It's still not working for me though which is weird as it keeps saying it can't find startup.sh.  If I don't do chmod +x startup.sh it says 'permission denied', so it knows it's there.  Any idea what's going wrong??  Thanks

 

docker run -d --name='adb' --net='br0.55' --ip='192.168.50.19' --cpuset-cpus='1,7,8,17,23,24' --log-opt max-size='50m' --log-opt max-file='3' --privileged=true -e TZ="Europe/London" -e HOST_OS="Unraid" -v '/mnt/user/appdata/dockers/adb/':'/config':'rw' 'sorccu/adb' sh -c "/config/startup.sh & adb -a -P 5037 server nodaemon"
#!/bin/sh

sleep 5

DEVICES="192.168.30.30"

echo "Connecting to devices."
for device in $DEVICES; do
   adb connect $device
done
echo "Done."

while true; do
  for device in $DEVICES; do
    adb connect $device (anglebracket) /dev/null 2(anglebracket)&1
  done
  sleep 60
done

That's the same permission issue I ran into when creating the setup.sh file using notepad++ and putting it in adb's appdata folder.

 

Start by opening the adb container's console.

Check your permissions by typing

ls -alh /config

I corrected mine using

chmod 777 /config/startup.sh

and

chown root:root /config/startup.sh

I also noticed in your post the same formatting errors that I had from c/p with notepad++. Your issue may just be c/p to your post, but verify you don't have the two "(anglebracket)" in your script.

If you're not familiar with vi, it's unintuitive at first.
After typing

vi /config/startup.sh

move your cursor to an area where you need to make a change. Hit "i" on your keyboard. Make the necessary changes. Hit the "esc" key when you're done making changes. Type ":wq" to write the changes and close the file. Restart adb.

I was having the same issues as mentioned in this post - I know its a bit old now but I've only recently become a user of UnRAID.

I re-packaged the sorccu container with a script which will connect to the androidtv/firetv devices automatically and attempt to keep them connected. Its nothing fancy but it works for me.

 

Its here if it will help anyone else with these issues: https://hub.docker.com/r/barnybbb/adb-hass-androidtv

 

Thanks,

 

Barny.

Thanks a lot Barny for sharing this.

You should make a template and publish it in unraid community apps so more people will find it

I needed this today too and found that it wasn't a template so I created one for it.

 

 

 

If Barny ever decides to spin up a container template repo for CA and would prefer to take this over I'd gladly hand it over, but for now I wanted to get this out to more people who may need it :)

@CorneliousJD thanks for converting this to a template and helping people out with it. This was a little Christmas project of mine which I promptly got distracted from with that pesky thing called "work" for the last 5 months...

I'm finally back to playing with my unraid/hass/firetv integrations (when time permits!).
