Hi everyone,

I'm a Debian noob and I have just gotten my DIVCO FusionHDTV5 USB Gold
and want to start recording QAM and HDTV TV to my hard-drive.

I am running Debian Etch on a Xscale ARM processor and I have
downloaded the bluebird firmware for the DIVCO tuner.

Question: If I want to manually record TV shows [via the command line]
from a QAM or ATSC source, do I simply get any of these files below
and untar them?



I am not running MythTV and want to use the command line.

Another question: When recording QAM signals, is the information
re-encoded, or is the stream simply captured on the hard drive like an
ATSC HD signal?


Some commands I found are these below, but I am not sure which ones I
can use for my DIVCO tuner...

getatsc -q -dvb 0 71 >test_stream

pchdtvr -i 0 -c pchdtvr.0.conf -s 300 42 -o 42Fox.ts
