Hauppauge wintv-hvr h006 - dvb-t tuner - usb-stick - hybrid tv stick


Hi,

Would you know how to play anything ?

I don't use VLC.
I can give you an overview how to use it, I use mplayer.
Same idea for any other player.

Make sure that you have software support for the device.
Code:
dmesg | tail
.....
[73892.944851] dvb-usb: Pinnacle PCTV HD USB Stick successfully initialized and connected.
[73892.945193] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_dib0700
Then scan for channels from a channel list. An example for ATSC OTA
Code:
scan /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB
Take the output of that and make a ~/.mplayer/channels.conf
Example
Code:
WSEC-TV:479028615:8VSB:49:52:1
WSEC-D2:479028615:8VSB:65:68:2
WSEC-D3:479028615:8VSB:81:84:3
WAND:491028615:8VSB:49:52:3
STORM:491028615:8VSB:65:68:4
WICS:641028615:8VSB:49:52:3
TCN:641028615:8VSB:65:68:4
WCIA:213028615:8VSB:65:68:4
WCIX:213028615:8VSB:49:52:3
WRSP:653028615:8VSB:49:52:3
METV:653028615:8VSB:65:68:4
HSN:587028615:8VSB:481:482:1
WBUI:521028615:8VSB:49:52:3
THIS:521028615:8VSB:65:68:4
Play a channel with
Code:
mplayer dvb://WSEC-TV
or
Code:
mplayer dvb://
Then use the h and k keys to move through the channels.

So you'll need a working tuner, software support on your machine for it, scan for channels to make a channel list for the player, use a player to play a channel.

Your device isn't working, you don't have the correct software installed for it, or you don't have it plugged in.

Google for what software you need for your USB tuner.
See how that loads in your flavor of linux. If there is support.
Check to see what kernel supports it. You make have to build it. There may be no support.

http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge
http://ppa.launchpad.net/pitti/ppa/u.../v4l-dvb-dkms/
http://www.drivers-4u.com/w/wintv_hvr_h006_for.html

Good luck. Post back If you get it working so others can benefit.
