Hi everyone,

Just got a new Cinergy T2 DVB-T USB.
Using FC4 2.6.12.1_1398 on x86_64.

I'm not farmiliar at all with the pieces involved in getting this thing 
going.
Can somebody give me some pointers on next steps.

I installed the mythtv-suite from http://wilsonet.com/mythtv/atrpms.repo
It looks like I have the modules loaded. Anything important missing?

The devices are created under /dev/dvb/adapter0/ and I can tzap.
(already have a channels.conf for Munich.)

    [root at athome ~]# ls /dev/dvb/adapter0/<tab>
    demux0  dvr0  frontend0  net0

    [root at athome ~]# ./tzap eurosport
    using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'

FE_HAS_LOCK
    status 1f | signal 6117 | snr 7878 | ber 00000000 | unc 000000f6 | 
FE_HAS_LOCK

But where do I go from here?
How can I verify the T2 is seeing a video stream.
