    1: # Miscellaneous DVB Notes

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