Scanning DVB-C Channels?
« on: June 17, 2008, 03:54:26 pm »
Hello,

This wiki outlines how to scan channels for DVB-T and S, anyone can help on how to scan DVB-C Channels?

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/VDR

Thanks.

Unlike the wiki suggestion, I used dvb-utils to scan for my dvb-s channels (much like outlined for dvb-t)

I ran:

Code: [Select]
sudo scan -o vdr /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E > channels.conf
SSOO

I should imagine that there are scripts in dvb-utils to scan for dvb-c in a similar manner.

Check /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan to see if there is a folder called dvb-c (obviously you must first sudo apt-get install dvb-utils). If there is, see what files are contained there.

Thanks.

I tried installing DVD-utils, but I got an error message. Any idea why?

linuxmce@dcerouter:/usr/share/doc$ sudo apt-get install dvd-utils
[sudo] password for linuxmce:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package dvd-utils
linuxmce@dcerouter:/usr/share/doc$


Thanks again.

Try installing the dvb-utils instead.
