This page lists example software configurations that you might find helpful as a suggestion of what you can do with your system.

For a complete list of programs, see the commented software list page --- here, you'll find solutions, not just simple programs. For testing purposed or small systems, have a look at the First steps with a budget DVB card.

In order to be most useful for the reader, this page is diveded into three sections:

  • setups for full featured cards (DVB cards with hardware decoders)
  • setups for budget cards (DVB cards without hardware decoders) -- see here for USB DVB adapters
  • setups for analog TV cards (hey, shouldn't that sort of stuff rather be in the video4linux wiki?


A sample solution for a system with a budget DVB card

My system is a Twinhan DTV Mini Ter on a cheap HP Pentium 4 1.2GHz. The graphic card is only an on-board Intel 82810E with shared memory, so nothing fancy.

After installing the card drivers, I tried several solutions. I didn't get the VDR Software Decoder Plugin working so I tried xine -- which worked on the first trial and provides much functionality (for watching) on an easy and intuitive interface.


A sample solution for a system with a full-featured card

write it down if you have one -- I can't do it cause I haven't

(The budget setup above of course also works for FF cards.)
