Xine is a very popular multimedia player for Linux. Before all, it's a movie player, but it also can play audio files or connect to live streams. DVB cards can be accessed using the dvb input plugin.


In Debian/Ubuntu etc

 apt-get install gxine

Then create the channels list using the dvbtools' scan

 mkdir ~/.xine
 scan >~/.xine/channels.conf

Now start up gxine


and open the DVB card with

 File -> Open MRL -> dvb://

You should now see a program. You should be able to zap around using the NumPad-9 / NumPad-3 keys, the xine playlist, or using the next/previous chapter buttons in your gui.
