Idiots guide to DVB Nova-t


Anyone know how to/or of a complete idiots guide to setting up Happauge Nova-t PCI, in particular aswell tuning to Scottish Blackhill Digital Broadcasts? I've got the correct modules installed. at least I can insert them and there's a device using them, but beyond that I'm looking a bit lost.

I've googled etc.. but I can't seem to find a coherent all in one place guide from making sure you've got the right device in the file system to actually watching something. Any suggestions?

Kernel 2.6.5

Maybe not exactly what you want, but a pretty long thread with some success reported:

http://www.dtvforum.info/index.php?s...=2397&hl=linux

In general that forum has a lot of useful info for linux users, although .au specific. There's also the forums and documentation at http://www.linuxtv.org . See also the kernel documentation in Documentation/dvb.

I haven't tried this card myself, but plan to when I get the time.

Well I seem to be getting somehwere, now have the error when I use the linuxtv scan app,

scanning uk-BlackHill
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
main:1882: FATAL: failed to open '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0': 2 No such file or directory


Which indeed I do not have a /dev/dvb. Am I missing a symlink to somewhere else or perhaps haven't installed something?

Been googling like mad trying to find an answer - the ones I've found split into two camps - "oh, here's a link, look here" (which invariabley leads to another link to another link etc..) without anyone saying what it error really means or - "it works for me, try this link" and round and round we go again.

Anyone know for sure ?

Here's my lsmod if it helps with (what I think) are the relevant mods if it helps
Code:
dvb_ttpci                  77836      0
saa7146_vv             46208      1 dvb_ttpci
video_buf                 16900      1 saa7146_vv
saa7146                15524         2 dvb_ttpci,saa7146_vv
firmware_class          7808        1 dvb_ttpci
ttpci_eeprom            2560        1 dvb_ttpci
grundig_29504_401  6276        0
