which digital tv usb card should i buy for linux kubuntu ?


the answer it’s pretty easy , just take your bucks and buy it FORGET TO USE IT WITHOUT A BIG HOUSE ANTENNA

Pinnacle Systems  PCTV 73e

 

plug it and use vlc to get it working fast or kaffeine , i will suggest vlc , for kaffeine you need some fix i guess with vlc you can just plug and use it how?

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THIS

sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-zvbi

this is because you can get this for teletext

VLC does not support the audio or video format “telx”. Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

NOTE   -c IT means country ITALY so … if you are in another country just use your country id …. if you don’t know  run this  w_scan -c?  it wil tell ya

w_scan -X -P -t 2 -E 0 -c IT > dvb-channels.conf

you should get something like that :

nowardev@pavillion:~/Documents$ w_scan -X -P -t 2 -E 0 -c IT > dvb-channels.conf

after that =>

vlc  dvb-channels.conf

if you don’t get something that works , expecially if you are not italian just read the manual of
w_scan it’s very easy !
