That would of course make sense.
However it's dvbscan on Centos and IIRC it's dvb-utils and then there
are several things to remember - All of this done via ssh from work up
some very wet adsl string back in the hills.
Firstly dvbscan will not work while mythbackend owns the adaptor
service mythbackend stop
Then, as root again (because the dvb adaptor /dev/dvb/adaptor* is 600
and owned root:root)
dvbscan /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/uk-EmleyMoor > /home/mythtv/.xine/channels.conf
However as user mythtv xine can't open the dvb adaptors because mythtv
doesn't have permissions.
So modify /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms
find the line that reads:
<console> 0660 <dvb> 0660 root
and change it to:
<console> 0600 <dvb> 0660 root.mythtv
Reboot and then as user mythtv
xine dvb://"BBC ONE"
Will work, although viewing that at 384KBi/s isn't what you would call
a working experience, but at least tonight I can get straight into
checking things out.
