  1. Hi Garry,

    I’m trying to configure MythTV to watch TV from the cable.
    I live in Switzerland and there is a specificity with the cable in my city, the signal is in DVB-T an not DVB-C as it should usually be, so I use a TerraTec Cinergy T2.
    I’ve followed your guide to configure MythTV, but when I scan the channels, it found nothing.
    Do you have any idea how to proceed with this specificity?


  2. Hi

    Thanks again for your guide. I’ve been using it as a reference point for years whenever I’ve needed to make changes to my MythTV setup.

    When you have time, you might update your information on the Pinnacle PCTV nanoStick T2 290e USB, which you say doesn’t support Freeview HD with compiling drivers. I’m using it with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise, kernel 3.2.0-35-generic on AMD64, and it worked out of the box for me. I didn’t even need to restart: immediately I plugged it in, MythBackEnd listed the new tuner and, as soon as I’d completed a channel scan, the HD channels were available. It also seems to work perfectly with SD channels.

    I’ve been using the stick for three days now and haven’t yet had any signs of instability or poor reception. Channel changing is faultless and recording has so far been 100% reliable. However, I do have very strong reception (I have a clear line of sight to the Wenvoe transmitter) so I can’t vouch for performance under challenging conditions.
