I am using Fedora Core 4 with kernel 2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 and MythTV
0.18.1.20050523-1. I have managed to get the card to work within Xine
but not with MythTV as I said before. Maybe I have got the data in
dvb_channels and dvb_pids wrong and would be greatful if somebody
could take a quick look at the files below.
Here is the output of scan:
>From that file I created a SQL script that populates the tables
'dvb_channel' and 'dvb_pids'
The export of the tables after population looks like:
I would be very pleased if anyone could take a look at them. If I have
made something strange I think it's quite easy for you experienced DVB
people to see it.
Have a Happy New Years Eve!!
