It is slow going with the T300 card but I have found out that I had the bad luck of trying my first attempts on a system that has mythTV installed. From internet search I have found that apparently mythTV monopolises card(s) so when I tried to be cautious and test the T300 by running via meTV and/or kaffeine no go.
I have now moved the test to a copy of MiniMe where I have installed kaffeine and VLC. I have tried VLC no luck and decided that kaffeine must be working before I move to any other application.
I go to:
1.. Television > Configure Televeison > General Options > Update Scan data over Internet (seems to be working)
2.. Devise1 TAB > Shows my device is a TDA10046H DVB-T and source is AutoScan (also very likely)
Back to Televison TAB
1.. Select Channels > Start Scan (seems to work signal and snr keeps changing takes quite some time)
I did expect the scan result to show up in the right hand pane, as scan progressed, but nothing ever shows here.
In this directory is a number of usefull files for kaffeineconfig.dvb
frontendName=Philips TDA10046H DVB-T
The red in above is more for my own info to remind me that the card shows this in lspciscanfile.dvb
T 184625000 7MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE
T 191500000 7MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
T 205500000 7MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE
T 212500000 7MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
T 219500000 7MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE
Will spare you the content, approx 8000 lines of information, worldwide channel listing I think, including the Australians that I will be needing. I also thought I had selected Australia in the scan ?? I have just listed one section of what is in this file. Starting to wonder if this is correct.
These two above are empty.
Any hints from T300 owners?
