Hi Andrew ,
many thanks for your response (and all your efforts in the forums which are very informative) & BRILLIANT wiki -as a windows refugee this sort of detailed howto is very welcome in trying to overcome the daunting learning curves involved in migrating to linux (at least for me).
I am now running 0710 beta4 i386
After following wiki, ui 1 locked on accessing tv, even after reloading router, -after a couple of cold boots , and changing to UI 2, channels appear in both vdradmin web page and in EPG (F5 over "no signal " screen) BUT no live broadcasts....
Can you possibly supply any pointers to how I've managed to bork things up and possibly a cure ?
Where is channels.conf uploaded to , after uploading via the wizard ?
You should be able to use F6 under ui2 to get the 'compass rose' control onscreen then select the upper triangle with if you have a Gyro remote, IR remote or mouse. Then select the channle you want from the UI2 EPG screen.
Alternative use the IR remote to choose the channel number you want... 1 for BBC1... 3 for ITV1.... 80 for BBC News 24 etc etc... as per the UK Freeview channel listings/channel No.s
You can find channels.conf here; /var/lib/vdr/channels.conf
