Yes and ...no ...
I really would like to use the internal TV player/recorder...
But there's something wrong inside....
It change channels well, but when the next channel has a different norm, this
channel cannot be viewed...
So I tried to use the external channel change command with a script shell.
This shell's content is roughly a parser to .xawtv config file with a call to
v4lctl setchannel <CHANNEL> and v4lctl setnorm <NORM_OF_THE_CHANNEL>
But it doesn't work... There's something that conflicts...
I had a look inside the source of mythtv... There are many call to setchannel
or things like that... I tried to add a setnorm command to set up
the correct norm for a given channel, without success...
That's why, for the moment, I would like to replace the internal TV player by
xawtv or tvtime... Recording would be disabled... It's a pity, but I don't
care for the moment...
I don't use an external box... I have a basic PCTV Rave that receive 30-40
channel, unfortunately with differents norms...
Some help is required ! Thank you !
