digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

'lo.

I own an terratec cinergyT2 usb dvb-t device, and have it connected to my pc. Allthough the antenna is too poor to recieve anything at all, I want to try to get the thing set up properly.

I can add following parts of installation, if they contain no errors:

done - udev ruleset to have nodes in /dev/dvb/adapter0/... style
done - udev permission set
testing - channels.conf for vcd or xine, mplayer, at least for ffm / germany

As the module is loaded without an error, I thought mplayer dvb://zdf could do the job now. Well, it isn't. Some parts are still missing. At this stage, I am not sure if it is a mplayer- or xine-config problem, or still an hardware / driver / kernel issue.

If someone else is working on similar stuff, we might try work it out, together.

Re: digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

Take care, channels.conf syntax differs from app to app.
Place in ~.xine/channels.conf or ~.mplayer/channels.conf
This channels.conf is for Germany/RheinMain/Frankfurt am Main:

Re: digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

So, running xine dvb:///"Das Erste" should bring up my tv. But it bring me the gui and an error about missing plugin and mrl.
Running mplayer dvb:///"Das Erste" leads to

Re: digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

I don't think you need the leading slash after the protocol... and also can you try the verbose option for more info?

As said above, the antenna is really poor. I believe the device is set up and could work, but there is just no input.

I'd venture a guess that you aren't able to write to the device... looks to me like it's trying to change something on the device to switch to the proper channel....

did you try as root?

It is the same, isn't it. Due to "UNER TYPE SEEMS TO BE DVB-T
get_path('channels.conf.ter') -> '/home/ingo/.mplayer/channels.conf.ter'" I moved channels.conf to channels.conf.ter. I guess I should prrof first, if the channel conf files are correct. Might be they are wrong.

Re: digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

it actually looks like it may be tuning correctly... or at least setting the freq correctly, just not getting a signal...

Re: digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

Thank you for your assistance. I hope somebody will find this thread helpful for his own setup. I consider the antenna to be not very usefull, so I will finish the setup if I own a better one.

Re: digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

Thanks for this thread, especially for the channel list config.
How did you create it? Is there some linux application? And how can I change channels in mplayer? I don't want to quit and restart with a different URL when I want to zap through the channels.

Can someone recommend a TV application for DVB?

Re: digital tv (dvb-t) - knowledge collection

I found out kaffeine is the thing to choose today. It scans for channels, and you have a nice tv app by the way. It is a kde thing.
