ah ok, but when i tried to watch tv like with "mplayer dvb://zdf" (zdf =
example for channel name) it didn't work as well.

Hell, i just checked again just now and i now have TV! It didnt work
yesterday and i dont know why. This is no lie, just bizarre fact.

If i have more news i will report back. Thanks for the answer so far!
