        !             3: ## How to test that a device is working?
        !             4: 
        !             5: Here is one basic way to test a [[!template id=man name="dtv" section="4"]]
        !             6: device. The example uses DVB-T. First install the necessary packages
        !             7: 
        !             8:        # cd /usr/pkgsrc/multimedia/dvb-apps
        !             9:        # make install package clean
        !            10: 
        !            11:        # cd /usr/pkgsrc/multimedia/mplayer
        !            12:        # make install package clean
        !            13: 
        !            14: Scan a basic `channels.conf`:
        !            15: 
        !            16:        $ scan -x 0 /usr/pkg/share/dvb/dvb-t/fi-Turku > \
        !            17:                ~/.mplayer/channels.conf
        !            18: 
        !            19: Then you should be able to already use `mplayer`:
        !            20: 
        !            21:        $ mplayer dvb://"YLE TV1"
        !            22: 
        !            23: For more involved testing, one can use for instance `tzap` (or equivalently,
        !            24: `czap` or `szap`). In one terminal set the driver for recording:
        !            25: 
        !            26:        $ tzap -r "YLE TV1"
        !            27: 
        !            28: This gives continous information such as the signal strength. Check that the
        !            29: FE_HAS_LOCK flag is present. Then pipe in an another terminal:
        !            30: 
        !            31:        $ cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > file.ts
        !            32: 
        !            33: At some point break and try to play the output file with `mplayer`.
