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
