Setting up DVB-C (cable)

In this chapter you'll find information about how to setup up MythTV as a cable (DVB-C) receiver. For general information about DVB and DVB-C you should read the chapter called About DVB.


Scanning for channels

In order to scan DVB-C with MythTV, you need to give it an initial transponder. The data you need to enter is: frequency, polarity, symbol rate and modulation. It can be obtained from your channels.conf file.

Also, DO NOT import a channels.conf into mythTV any more (as of .21). It does NOT provide all the information necessary to properly tune DVB and will lead to myriad problems.

Someone really ought to flesh out this page.


Scripts

Channel_tuning_broken_with_DVB-C

With some cable providers scanning for channels gives trouble (not possible to tune the channels found by MythTV). This script fixes the channels found by the scanner. It does not find missing channels for you, for this you need a different script.
