  • If you have a Full-featured DVB Card (one with a builtin MPEG decoder chip) then these packages will probably be all you need to get started. Use Aptitude or Synaptic to install the base "vdr" package and any plugins that interest you.
  • If on the other hand you have bought a so called budget DVB card, you will need to install a software decoder plugin. You can either compile and install it manually, or compile the latest Debian packaged version.
