Since this is my first message, have a look at my local 

Mobo : ASUS
CPU  : Athlon XP 2600
RAM  : 512 MByte
Video: nVIDIA GeForce MX/MX 400 (nVIDIA 3D driver)
Sound: 1.) Onboard (inactiv)
       2.) Soundblaster 16 digital (system and TV-sound)
       3.) M-Audio Delta Audiophil 2496 (audio editing)
TV   : 1.) Hauppauge Nexus S (satellite)
       2.) Terratec 1200 DVB-T PCI (terrestial)

One and a half year ago or so I started my first 
vdr-installation on SuSE 8.2 and with the Hauppauge Nexus 
only, downloading the sources of dvb-driver, vdr and kvdr.

Later, under SuSE 9.1 and now 9.3, I used the delivered 
system. The Hauppauge Nexus S was detected automatically.

Now I bought the budget Terratec 1200 DVB-T PCI, which, as 
the VDR-WIKI told me, should be fine in conjunction with 
the fullfeatured Nexus. And it is!


The only dvb-ttpci-01.fw on my system is a symbolic link to 
one of the actual firmware-files

  -> /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/dvb-ttpci-01.fw-261d

The other firmware-file resides in the same location


I got the appropriate firmware for the Terratec through the 
help of a perl script 'get_dvb_firmware' located in


To access the local DVB-T channels in Hamburg, I filled the 
appropiate channels list from VDR-WIKI into my 


Most of these stations come in clear, without one bouquet 
(NDR). But this in another message.
