To run DVB devices you need to have the firmware of the device in "/lib/firmware/".

The following commands create a DVB-T channels configuration file for xine.

w_scan -ft -c AT -X > channels.conf
cp channels.conf ~/.xine/

To record a transport stream with xine,
the parameter "media.capture.save_dir" has to be set in "~/.xine/config".
The following command records the stream of the specified channel.

xine dvb://<channel_name>#save:<file_name>.ts
