This example assumes you can get the card to load correctly...

I had no issues with Fedora Core 3. From a default Fedora install I ran "make install" from the pcHDTV 2.0 driver package. Rebooted.

First get rid of any modules that are loaded just to be safe.
Code:
rmmod cx88-atsc
rmmod cx88-dvb
Then load the dvb module
Code:
modprobe cx88-dvb
verify it loaded with dmesg
Code:
dmesg
cx2388x dvb driver version 0.0.4 loaded
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:0b.2[A] -> GSI 5 (level, low) -> IRQ 5
cx88[0]/2: found at 0000:00:0b.2, rev: 5, irq: 5, latency: 32, mmio: 0xeb000000
cx88[0]/2: cx2388x based dvb card
DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[0]).
DVB: registering frontend 0 (pcHDTV HD3000 HDTV)...
The device will be
Code:
/dev/dvb/adapter0/*
Using dvb-apps from (www linuxtv org/cvs.php -- I can't post urls yet) you can tune OTA. (Note I use QAM not OTA but its a little tricker finding the channel frequencies, atleast it was for me.)

Get the list of channels in your area (replace 92107 with your zipcode)
Code:
cd dvb-apps/util/szap/channels-conf/atsc
perl make_atsc_chanconf.pl 92107 > ~/.azap/channels.conf
This will create a file with the channels and frequencies in your area, view it so you know the channel names.
Code:
cat ~/.azap/channels.conf
KFMB:719000000:8VSB:0:0
KGTV:539000000:8VSB:0:0
XETV:627000000:8VSB:0:0
KNSD:629000000:8VSB:0:0
KPBS:569000000:8VSB:0:0
KSWB:503000000:8VSB:0:0
KUSI:497000000:8VSB:0:0
KCBS:749000000:8VSB:0:0
KDOC:581000000:8VSB:0:0
Now notice the last 2 entries are :0:0, this is incorrect for tuning to a specific video and audio feed. I'm not sure what it means, :0:0, I just know you have to lock into a station and then look for the correct "pids" to replace the :0:0 with real "pids". Here is how you do it.. get two consoles up.

In console 1 tune to a station (pick a channel name from your list, to replace XETV)
Code:
cd dvb-apps/util/szap
./azap -r XETV
tuning to 627000000 Hz
video pid 0x0000, audio pid 0x0000
status 00 | signal a28e | snr fb73 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 |
status 1f | signal 04dc | snr fce9 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 04dc | snr fd21 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 0936 | snr fd19 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 0936 | snr fcf9 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
Leave that window running... (NOTE you need to see FE_HAS_LOCK in the last field otherwise you are not locking onto a signal.. try different channels/antennas until you get it. You can't continue until you get this lock.)

In console 2 (azap is still running in console 1) we need to lookup some good "pids" for the station.
Code:
cd dvb-apps/util/dvbtraffic
./dvbtraffic
-PID--FREQ-----BANDWIDTH-BANDWIDTH-
0000    10 p/s     1 kb/s    16 kbit
0020     3 p/s     0 kb/s     5 kbit
0021 11101 p/s  2038 kb/s 16697 kbit
0024   132 p/s    24 kb/s   199 kbit
0030     2 p/s     0 kb/s     4 kbit
0031  7606 p/s  1396 kb/s 11440 kbit
0034   176 p/s    32 kb/s   265 kbit
1fff  6768 p/s  1242 kb/s 10179 kbit
2000 25804 p/s  4737 kb/s 38809 kbit
If you see alot of entries that means the signal is dirty, the smaller this list the better. Look for "pids" that have alot of bandwidth those are the ones that are carrying the data. (NOTE 1fff and 2000 are totals so they are not valid pids.

In this example we get 20,24 and 31,34 so this frequency is showing 2 video and 2 audio streams. (This is from my Cable QAM which puts 2 channels in the same frequency.)

Now stop azap in console 1 and stop dvbtraffic in console 2. Time to modify the channels.conf file. The pids from the dvbtraffic are in HEX but channels.conf needs the DEC value so convert them. (21,24 will be 33,36) change the line, XETV:627000000:8VSB:0:0 to XETV:627000000:8VSB:33:36, or just add a new entry..
Code:
echo "TEST:627000000:8VSB:33:36" >> ~/.azap/channels.conf
In console 1, Now run azap again but with the correct "pids", Note the pids will be printed in HEX again, you can check your work.
Code:
cd dvb-apps/util/szap
./azap -r TEST
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
tuning to 627000000 Hz
video pid 0x0021, audio pid 0x0024
status 1f | signal 0105 | snr fcc5 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 04dc | snr fcc9 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 0936 | snr fce9 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
Now in console 2 you can either capture this to a file. If you don't have a good signal or your video/audio pids are not setup, /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0, will not output anything for capture/playback.
Code:
cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > test.mpg
or you can send this directly to mplayer for direct playback (NOTE my mplayer line is to use Nvidia's xvmc) you may need to use something else.
Code:
cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 | mplayer -vo xvmc -vc ffmpeg12mc -ao alsa -ac hwac, -display 0:0 -zoom -

OK, cool, now how do I do this with QAM instead of OTA? I'm trying to set up with Comcast cable, and am having a terrible time finding info to tune QAM on my pcHDTV 3000 so I can use MythTV. I'd also like regular analog NTSC if possible in parallel with QAM.

Great posts here. Just wanted to also throw in the fact that my old cable provider (Cox of northern VA) had some QAM channels that were above the 806mhz frequency. So if you're only checking up to that point you might miss a couple. They are the only cable company I've seen do this.

My cable company uses HRC for QAM_256, so I used the following to go through the channels. You can use the HRC algorithm to go higher as well, though most cable companies only use the higher freq's for encrypted channels.

some other notes, when using azap you can use:
mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0
with either
-aid <audioPID> -vid <videoPID>
or
-tsprog <programID, ie. last "zero" in the 0:0:0 set>

I find for QAM tsprog works best but for me the music match channel didn't tune correctly so I had to use the -aid and -vid to get them properly tuned.

also, once you have your channels.conf created, copy it to your .mplayer directory and if you've got dvb support compiled in you can use:
mplayer dvb://channelname

to watch a channel directly with mplayer.

This looks like the format for a set of digital channels (QAM_256). Does this also apply to analog channels? I would have thought analog would show a different/no modulation and no video/audio PIDs.

My Fusion 5 card works under Windows, but not yet under Linux. Using it's Windows software, I got the analog/digital frequencies and digital video/audio PIDs for all of the channels, but I don't know what modulation to use for analog.

I am trying to figure out the proper utitilities and procedures to test the digital and analog tuners in my card so I can properly configure MythTV.
