VDR - tuning fail creating channels.conf
« on: December 31, 2012, 03:32:23 pm »
Newbie here.....  :D I'm trying to get VDR setup on new 1004 install.
My tv card is a -medion 7134- with dvb-s & dvb-t tuners.

I followed the VDR wiki page instructions and get to the making of channels.conf but get:-

root@dcerouter:/home# sudo scan -o vdr -p -u /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/uk-Durris > channels.conf
scanning /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/uk-Durris
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'

Instead of the standard scan utility use w_scan - http://wirbel.htpc-forum.de/w_scan/index_en.html

make sure VDR is not running, and copy the channels.conf into /var/lib/vdr
