Kaffeine recognizes DVB cards, scans channels, but DVB icon remains dim.


It was working in my previous installation of Breezy, but not in this one. I don't remember what I did. All I remember is that I compiled it from source. Other programs work,(Klear) but don't offer the possibility of using a channel list that is for two cards like Kaffeine does. (DVB-T an DVB-S) Both cards are zappable with tzap and szap and get FE_HAS_LOCK when tuning to a channel in their channels.conf

Hello Ekkume,

I think I have the same trouble as you, but it is my first install of DVB T card on ubuntu breezy.
Kaffeine detects my cinergy tē, then I could scan the channels and found them but after in the DVB tab I could not access to anyone.
In the Go tab also, the DVB icon is greyed.

Just want to know if you found a solution?


Thanks in advance for your help,

It's ok I just solved the problem by selecting kaffeine in settings=>player engine
Then the icon passed clear and ready for display.

Hope this will work for you too.

Hello Ekkume,

Just an other question, I would like to know if you use the remote control provided with the card.
I saw that the remote control was already working, for exemple, I could make variation of the sound volume. But excepted a few stuff like this I am not able to swith in full screen mode or changing channel.

I tried to use LiRC but I did not have many information about the type of driver to use when I do the configuration.
I you have done it I would appreciate some help.

Sorry, can't help there really. I haven't tried playing around with the remote control yet. I might get to that soon since I have Kaffeine working now. :-)
