This means you did the channel scan and saved channel.conf file in

szap -rp "BBC World"   (you can replace BBC World with any channel in
your channel.conf) and make sure you get FE_HAS_LOCK before you start

mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0

mythtv: there is multiproto patch for mythtv-svn. I tried it but it
always failed med after 1 hour of compiling it's nothing to do with
the patch anyway here is the link to the patch.


easiest way is to use vdr, I'm using vdr-1.6.0-1 stable version.
if you want to use the stable version you have to search for this
patch [ANNOUNCE] DVB-S2 + H.264 support for VDR-1.5.18 in vdr mailing
list and patch the vdr source.

There is vdr developer version 1.7.0 which support multiproto but you
still going to need H.264 support patch which can be found at vdr
mailing list.
