I re-emerged the dvbnet (dvb-apps) package in Gentoo to a more recent
release (Build Fri Apr 21 12:56:22 2006).
The dvbnet command now creates dvb0_0.
I have managed to tune to a transponder using dvbtune, but I didn't see
any data on dvb0_0 when using ifconfig.
Can you suggest a procedure so I can see the ip data received with
something like tcpdump ? This would hopefully prove that I have
configured everything correctly.
