README


* dvbd ** INTRODUCTION The idea behind dvbd is to make maximum use of your DVB card by allowing multiple channels on the same frequency to be tuned. It is split into a daemon (dvbd) and client programs (dvbcat, dvbsched, dvblist). It is possible to associate a priority with a connection to the daemon, so that (depending on the given priority) the tuner can be made available by dropping connections of inferior priority. DVB-T, DVB-S, DVB-C supported. Also read dvbdguide/README.dvbdguide if you are interested in a web frontend for this program. ** BUILDING It is important to specify a prefix for configure, even if you are planning to install to /usr/local. For example: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local ** CONFIGURATION The daemon has a configuration file which by default is /etc/dvbd/config. The format of the file is lines of key=value. Line comments can be begun with #. The following configuration fields are available: socket - the (unix) socket to listen on. Default is /var/run/dvbd/dvbd.socket pid - the pid file to write to once it has become a daemon. Default is /var/run/dvbd/dvbd.pid log - the log file to write to Default is /var/log/dvbd.log schedule - the schedule file to write to Default is /var/spool/dvbd/schedule debug - the debug level (default is 0) If a higher debug level is set, dvbd will not go into the background. numcards - the number of DVB cards your system supports card0 - the first DVB card. The format of this field is type:frontend:channels Where - type may be one of dvb-t, dvb-s or dvb-t. - frontend is the path to the frontend (tuner) for the card - channels is the path to the tzap/szap/czap format channels.conf file for the card. If no cards are specified, a default of one dvb-t card is assumed with channels file /etc/tzap.channels.conf and frontend /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 ** CLIENT PROGRAMS At the moment there are three client programs. dvbcat, dvblist and dvbsched. dvbcat can be used to extract a stream from the dvbd for live TV. For example: dvbcat dvb-t "BBC ONE" | mplayer - dvbsched is used to schedule a recording. Note that an output file must be specified whose containing directory must be owned by the user issuing the request. The directory must also be writable by the dvbd program. The time format is in at(1) format. See at's manpage for more information about it. For example: mkdir ~/recordings dvbsched dvb-t "ITV 2" 19.20 32 ~/recordings/itv2.mpg If there is a clash the program will ask you if you want to cancel your job. dvblist shows the channels available to tune at the given priority (default is 10). For example: dvblist dvb-t If there are some existing connections the list of channels may be shorter than the full list. ** CONTRIBUTING AND COMMENTS Feedback, bug fixes, new features, patches and suggestions are very welcome. Please send to jak@users.sourceforge.net or post on the SourceForge project page.
