hello,
I have a Twinhan1025 card and after I loaded related bttv module, use
the following two command, I can watch the specific channel via xine.
-------------------
[root at pc1 ~]$./szap -l 11300 -c /home/zhuhx/channels.conf "JCTV" -r
[root at pc1 ~]$xine stdin://mpeg2</dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0
[zhuhx at pc1 ~]$ cat /home/zhuhx/channels.conf
JCTV:12581:h:S146.0E:25600:165:100:0:0:16:0:0:0
TBN:12581:h:S146.0E:25600:166:104:0:0:17:0:0:0
[zhuhx at pc1 ~]$
-------------------

but, when I try to use vdr-1.4.3 and softdevice-0.2.3,the vdr comes out
with OSD, but no TV program comes out. Is it because I use the wrong
command or the /video/channels.conf format is wrong? (I use "szap -o
vdr" , see following info.)? or I didn't press the right key to let vdr
lock and output video?

what I do is the following:

1.use "scan" to generate channels.conf and cp it to /video, which has
two entries for 2 TV channel.

----------------------------------

then I use the following command to watch TV via vdr, no error messages,
but also no video output.(I use up/down arrow key of the pc keyboard to
move between channel 1(JCTV) and channel 2(TTBN), and press enter to
choose the channel.)
