Spent a bunch of time last night and this morning creating and rearranging ATSC devices stuff. There is a LOT of work that could be done.

I got to find a WYSIWYG wiki editor, else using code takes me ages

made a mess of the categories tonight ... will clean that whole thing up soon. Started with the renaming and relinking of the DVB pages ... a lot more work than I thought. Oh well, it will be nice to have a consistant look and nomenclature across the board.

Definitely several months of work to get this thing ship shape!

Hi CityK,

Sorry about that :(. I'll make my changes to Mplayer now.

No worries with the countries thing - I thought it would make more sense moving it to channels.conf, as that is the correct file name. I then decided to make a "Europe" sub-category as there were quite a few European entries. I've also contributed one for United Kingdom (Sheffield) detailing my experience with setting it up :).

I like the look of the page that you purpose and also i think that this can benefit a lot for people who only want information, actual desing is more confuse.

Thanks Howl. If you did not see the message previously, here is a (more-or-less) recent status report: --CityK 07:03, 27 July 2007 (CEST)
I like a lot the idea and also the Nick Andrew's one in the reply of making a database. I don't know if there is a system to integrate a SQL db style like MySQL in wiki but if it exists it could be a powerful tool that will help to test different templates for the devices pages making the data independient of the style. --howl 01:08, 30 July 2007 (CEST)
I do too, but I have no idea (or time to investigate, let alone implement) about a db in a wiki ... maybe in the future --CityK 19:14, 30 July 2007 (CEST)

Hi CityK,

I noticed that you reverted my additions to the "How_to_install_DVB_device_drivers" page of the Linux TV Wiki.

I just wondered why you decided to do this ?

Thinking about it in more detail I realise the statements I added might well have been wrong in which case I apologise for polluting otherwise clear instructions.

I am a bit of a Linux-newbie and was finding with v4l enabled within the kernel (configured from menuconfig) and trying to use the latest v4l sources I received a large number of warnings in dmesg output (something about the kernel defining symbols which the modules did as well). A reboot did not remove these errors. I fixed this by disabling v4l in my kernel and rebuilding it before proceeding to the 'make install' phase. (Drivers for my device already existed within the kernel but I need to use the newer ones which supported the remote control).

Hi Spectro ... yes, it was just a case of being that the statements were incorrect -- what you had written shouldn't be necessary, and what is outlined in the Hg instructions is all that is required (make, make install, make unload, modprobe drivers). That said, I believe that there was an error in the driver set from last week or so -- I remember seeing a number of postings on the m/l, and also on the irc channel, about errors similar to the ones you encountered. But that's what you have to expect with the bleeding edge -- from time to time, regressions unfortunately crop up/get introduced. In any regard, I think those problems have likely been amended now. As an aside, when I rolled back the article from your edit to the previous state, I forgot to note a reason (like: "inaccurate statement" or whatever), and hence that's why a comment/explanation is missing in the article's history feature for the rollback or from the wiki's list of "recent changes" feature. --CityK 17:04, 4 January 2008 (CET)

Do you have a place to put module parameters. Ie, proc/module/tuner/parameter/ntsc can be one of M,J,K setting special frequency bands for user in ???, Japan and Korea. Case doesn't matter.
