I just ended up here to try the HD-3000 card with DVB..I'm a Linux newbie and hardly have a clue unless I am guided well. I usually spend a lot of time searching before I post a question, but I have had the card a month and still not ready to record the Superbowl, time is short.

pcHDTV 3000 supports unencrypted QAM channels over cable. You must have the DVB module drivers (cx88_dvb) loaded to use QAM. [TODO add link to pcHDTV forums on DVB driver installation.] To scan for QAM channels:
+
 
+
<blockquote>
+
1. Install the 'dvb-apps' tools from cvs. See http://www.linuxtv.org.

+
<blockquote>
+
TODO add cvs instructions

</blockquote>
+
 
+
2. Save 'http://www.digitalregime.com/patches/channels.conf-qam-correct' to '~/.azap/channels.conf'.  
+
</blockquote>
+
  
You should be able to scan for QAM channels using 'azap' from the dvb-apps. Run 'azap [channel]' to scan for a specified channel, e.g., 'azap c80'. Cable channels typically begin at 80. A FE_HAS_LOCK indicates a signal lock on channel.

--iconian: Add questions to the FAQ and I'll try to answer them. It's been a while since I played with the card

I just ended up here to try the HD-3000 card with DVB..I'm a Linux newbie and hardly have a clue unless I am guided well. I usually spend a lot of time searching before I post a question, but I have had the card a month and still not ready to record the Superbowl, time is short.

I am here because of a post by theCaptain on the pcHDTV forums and want to try this non pcHDTV co. driver. I am Jim on the pchdtv forum, nerdful1 on the PVR Guide. (and Meade telescope site). Trudging along now...

I think we should get some of the folks in the pcHDTV forum to help construct an up-to-date Current Driver Status page. It's a pain having to search through the forums for scattered bits of information. Unfortunately, I would not be able to provide much help because the HD reception in my area is poor and I don't know how to get QAM working. -iconian
