The information on this page relates to DVB in the UK (United Kingdom)


Freeview

This uses an aerial (antenna) and requires the use of a tuner which provides DVB-T and/or DVB-T2 support.

Depending on the tuner type (PCI-e, USB, network) the default timeouts in Capture Card settings may need to be increased, the following settings work well for a range of devices and system loads and avoids "try increasing value if channels are missing".

Capture Card Tuning timeout (ms) should be set to 10000.

Capture Card Signal timeout (ms) should be set to 7000.

Satellite

This uses a satellite dish aligned to Astra 28E2 and requires the use of a tuner which provides DVB-S and/or DVB-S2 support. When scanning for channels set Frequency to 10714000 and change Symbol Rate to 22000000, all other values should be at default.

From MythTV Version 31, a new feature allows channel numbering according to Freesat/Sky rules, previously the channel number was set to serviceid. To use this feature you need to know the Region and Bouquet values for the regional channels (BBC, ITV, Channel 4 etc) which are setup in Video Source, see following tables.


Information.png Tip: When setting Region ID and Bouquet ID in the Video Source, when you have selected the item, you can press the Enter key and type in the required number, this is quicker than using the right arrow key to increase the value especially for large values, for example, 4101.


Assuming the Region ID and Bouquet ID have been set to other than default of 0 (zero) when doing a channel scan the selection of "Logical Channel Numbers required" affects the channels which will be added.

  • When checked only channels with a Logical Channel Number will be added.
  • When unchecked (the default) channels with Logical Channel Numbers will be added together with other channels being added with channel number set to serviceid. This allows, for example, Freesat channels to be correctly numbered, with other Free To Air channels being added using serviceid as the channel number.
