[SOLVED] dvb-t in vlc

Hi.
Can you watch dvb-t television in vlc player ?

On my PC I try 5 players:
xine - not see device;
mplayer - do not play video smoothly, I must enable hard drop frame function;
kaffeine - work well but I not use kde;
me-tv - not works, I do not like, I do not search solve the problem;
vlc - not work, It see programs but no audio and video.

vlc-logs:

Re: [SOLVED] dvb-t in vlc

Short answer: Yes, VLC usually works like a charm for DVB-X

Long answer:
I have been using DVB-T under Xubuntu for quite a while without issues. MPlayer usually works fine both as player / TV Frontend as well as for recording the streams. Both the requirement for the hard drop (hard dup ?) option and the TS disconitinuity error indicate that you either have bad receiption and/or severe driver errors.

For me MPlayer stopped tuning in fine when I had a damaged coax connector which dampened the signal. You should first ensure that you have a strong signal with good PSNR prior doing any tests with players / TV frontends.

Re: [SOLVED] dvb-t in vlc

I agree - short answer is 'yes' - and it's not too hard to figure it out. You'll need the frequency information of the transmission/muxes in your area and enter these into VLC along with your tuneer hardware.

Longer answer (actually a question) - why not use mythtv?

Re: [SOLVED] dvb-t in vlc

The easiest way to tune dvb-t channels with vlc is to use a 'zap' format channels.conf file generated with scan or w_scan.  Open it as a file in vlc and the channels should just appear in the playlist.

I generated channels list with w_scan but this list isn't correct. I had to mannualy change entries, example:

...:802:803:26  >>  ...:802+803:801:26

That's outside my region, I'm afraid.  Here in the UK, vlc will happily tune dvb-t without any VPID, APID or ServiceID information in the channels.conf.

I've read posts on other forums that the update to version 2 caused problems with dvb-t.

Re: [SOLVED] dvb-t in vlc

IMHO, tuning tv stuff on vlc is a bit of a kludge. And I've found mythTV, SageTV etc. very cumbersome - not worth the effort setting up, just to watch a little TV.

Give tv-viewer a whirl. I've found it to be a really good tv viewing program. It has preset channels depending on your zone, and if things are a little non-standard (as it seems to be for you, and is for me), you can just do a channel scan to get whatever is available in your area. Use the bazaar version mentioned in AUR - the bazaar version of tv-viewer works great on Arch.

Thanks for suggestion. Tv-viewer can play only mpeg-2. My television broadcast in mpeg-4.

u can create the playlist with w_scan -ft -c "your country" -L >> dvt.xspf

Thanks. It works !
I haven't tried generated channel list for vlc with w_scan... because earlier lists for mplayer not work properly and I think it does not make sense.

Re: [SOLVED] dvb-t in vlc

Hey there!

I got vlc working with my IT9135 chipset based DVB-T card under Ubuntu by installing the v4l-dvb git package and copying firmware files into /lib/firmware directory (full instructions are here). I did the same in my Archi by installing v4l-dvb-git and dvb-usb-it9135 pkgs from aur, rebooted the PC and plugged the card into USB port, but no chance to open it up in vlc. It says "VLC is unable to open the MRL".

Here is the dmesg output for "IT":

$ dmesg | grep IT

Any suggestion?

COLDFUSION, necrobumping is against forum policy. Don't do it. Having been here more than 3 years, you should know that.
