Another World Cup Another TV Receiver

Filed under: Uncategorized — rslomkow @ 10:29 pm

World cup comes around and I decided that I want to watch TV. 8 years ago I wanted analog, 4 years ago DVB-T, and This year DVB-T2

Hauppage supports Linux on their website so I went with the PCTV 292e from my local computer shop.

Supported in the kernel since 3.16.  But you need to get the firmware dvb-demod-si2168-b40-01.fw.  And stick it in /lib/firmware/dvb-demod-si2168-b40-01.fw

After that it is found and works in the kernel.

tvheadend works just fine, but it doesn’t know about the muxes

You need to go to: Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Muxes

Network type DVB-T Network works jut fine.

but the Mux “Delivery System” must be set to DVB-T2.

In Germany you get the frequency lists:

Works fine with Kodi clients or web view.  For me I am still on openelec and it works just fine and integrates nicely with program listings, recording, etc… from the front end.

Now I just wonder what I have to make work in 2022 ?
