CityK 19:46, 3 February 2007 (CET)

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

CityK 08:23, 7 February 2007 (CET)

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.

Hi Bpringlemeir ... Some parameters might already be documented in some of the articles remaining in the old V4L wiki (; perhaps in one of the tuner articles or in the chip interface (i.e. bt878 etc etc) articles. All these articles will be transfered into here in the near future. There are also the duplicate articles for some of the interface chipsets found here, in this wiki.

C'mon man, take a rest, is the last day of the year :)

Ah, but I had! (The wiki is on Grenwich MT. I'm on -5GMT, so the edits you saw were from the day prior)

please remove DVB-T_USB_Devices_Table

Hi there, could you remove DVB-T_USB_Devices_Table ? It doesn't add any information, and the information it duplicates from DVB-T_USB_Devices is not more readable or more accessible.

Also, you seem to have removed the DVB_USB page a while back but the Talk:DVB_USB page still exists. It only contains a redirect, but so did DVB_USB. So how about getting rid of that artifact, too?
