I stepped away from the evil compiler (burned out), got sick and noticed TexStar had sneaked the drivers in while I wasn't looking (What a gentleman!). Updating the system now and will report back.
P.s. Does anyone want a used cold, only one owner? I didn't want it in the first place!
Okay, installed but still stuck. Went into Kaffeine as suggested, it does have a DVB section now but when I turn it on and click "Apply", I get a "Can't bind info socket" ?
I have no idea what to do at this point.
Tried tvtime tv viewer as well and it can't find an input source.
Control centre says there is DVB hardware there now.
