[linux-dvb] Re: Stock Linux kernel readyness?
I've now switched to 2.6.10rc2 with the dvb-kernel links. This compiles
and runs OK but I get no data, even after a reboot.
It does not compile if I include the All-2.6.10-rc2.diff from
dl.bytesex.org. Patches or dvb-kernel maybe, not both?
I have to link the /dev/dvb/adaptor0/* to the /dev/dvb.*0 devices since
the files made by the makenod.sh script have different major/minor's. I
would like to change the code to look for the /dev/dvb.*0 devices - anyone
have a patch?
The tzap gets a lock...
# ./tzap BBC-1
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
tuning to 578000000 Hz
video pid 0x0258, audio pid 0x0259
status 0d | signal 3131 | snr 8181 | ber 00000c7f | unc 00000006 |
status 1f | signal 3131 | snr c8c8 | ber 00000919 | unc 0000000e |
but trying mythtv, mplayer or xine and none of them receive any data.
Was there anything else you have to do to receive data, other than reboot?
