  • Can someone give a sample layout of channel.conf. I've tried using one generated from xawtv that looks like:

    [BBC4]
    group = BBC
    tsid = 16384
    pnr = 16832

    [BBC3]
    group = BBC
    tsid = 4107
    pnr = 4351

    .
    .
    .

    but it's no good.

    Thanks

    • Hi Richard,

      You have to install dvb-apps or dvb_utils package from your distro repository and generate your channel.conf with dvbscan according to the documentation of the linux-tv web site http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Scan

      Hope this help

    • Thanks Thierry, this helped.

      I've got Suse 10.3 and the command for scanning is "scan".  dvbsched works now, so I'm going to try the PHP front-end.
