Hi John

I've loaded the Gtb-DVB .pet and its dependancies as you suggested but regret to say have not had great success.

When started, Gtb-DVB took over my whole screen, gxine seemed to give errors but in blank screens and Gxine only displayed a very small picture in a window that seemed broken up and corrupted.

I had to kill all the windows and reboot to get back to normal.

It was such a complex interaction that it is difficult to exactly describe what happened.

Xine seems to work much more relaibly although its gui is a bit clunky - but it does show DVB-T programmes in full screen .....

Not a success I'm afraid.

Cheers
Peter

Which version of Puppy are you running?? You should always include this info in your posts

Certainly from 4.3.1 non-retro the drivers are built-in so no compiling is needed???

Cheers
Peter

Got dvb-t working fairly painlessly on Puppy 4.3.1 K2.6.30.5 running on HP 550 laptop.

Plugged in the 'Afatech DVB-T USB1.1 stick' which was detected and firmware from file 'af9005.fw' was loaded. (Cheap usb dvb-t stick bought off ebay)
(Vendor id 15a4 device id 9020 15a4:9020)

Subject description: Not working
 

Hi, I have a problem on 4.3.1. My usbkey (eBay's one) doesn't work. I compiled missing modules from source at Linuxtv (update for this chip), but it isn't enough. Firmware is from packages in this thread.

Could you please help?

Where I can find dvb-utils/apps? I don't locate them with forum search tool.

Thanks in advance.

Bye.

Here are some helpful links
DVD tv applications (like scan and the script for making the device nodes)

Initial scan files for the scan utility

Have you tried a Puppy with a later kernel than 4.3.1 - e.g. Lupu or Wary?? They may support the 9015.....

The utilities were given by paulski earlier in this very thread....as a ready made pet

Does this help?
Cheers

PostPosted: Wed 15 Sep 2010, 14:58    Post subject: I want Lupu, but I can't...  

Hi,
I can't upgrade to Lupu because a wireless building error stops me (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59291). Sad
I've just post the problem again in "Regulars" (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59949).

Thank you for help and links! Smile

Bye.

Please help, if you can.

Thanks and bye.

UPDATE: is tail not dmesg. No other useful info by dmesg.

Already done above (used > for output, so no command visible). Copy & paste:

@whitesnow
#dmesg | grep dvb will give some different useful information. Please post that.
I am unclear whether your device is loading the firmware.
You may not have a problem at all but just don't know the next step.
