 +===== What? =====
 +Notes regarding my dvb-c card on linux. At this point i already have my dvb-card usable, firmware loaded, so /dev/dvb/adapter0 was created.
 +  * -- vdr-wiki, also generic dvb@linux infos
 +  * -- vdr-wiki, hdtv
 +===== initial scan / kaffeine =====
 +# a) get w_scan from and compile it
 +# b) now lets create an initial-tuning-file, kaffeine can do a channel-scan with this
 +     w_scan -fc -c DE -x > initial-tuning-data.txt
 +# c) copy the file where kaffeine expects it
 +     cp initial-tuning-data.txt .kde/share/apps/kaffeine/dvb-c/mytown
 +# d) now we can scan for channels in kaffeine and watch.
 +===== DVB-C and mplayer =====
 +apt-get install dvb-apps # or compile dvb-tools for yourself
 +# using the initial-tuning-data gathered with w_scan and the 'scan' utilits from dvb-apps
 +# we create the channels-ist:
 +scan initial-tuning-data.txt >channels.scan
 +# now czap can be used for channel-switching 
 +czap -c channels.scan -l                    # lists numbers of the channels
 +czap -c channels.scan -n 300                # tunes in channel #300
 +# if your mplayer is compiled with dvb-support you can use it:
 +cp channels.scan ~/.mplayer/channels.conf
 +mplayer dvb://'Das Erste' -cache 4096
 +===== HDTV w/ dvb-c and mplayer =====
 +  * kaffeine can hdtv natively, but makes trouble with my Terratec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C MK3, plain old tv works. Probably its because of the defaultish debian/xine codecs.
 +# now install x264 and mplayer (with x264 and dvb-support), instructions at
 +# we already created the channels file:
 +ls -al ~/.mplayer/channels.conf
 +# i have three HD-channels available:
 +cat ~/.mplayer/channels.conf
 +Das Erste HD:338000000:INVERSION_AUTO:6900000:FEC_NONE:QAM_256:6010:6020:11100
 +ZDF HD:338000000:INVERSION_AUTO:6900000:FEC_NONE:QAM_256:6110:6120:11110
 +arte HD:338000000:INVERSION_AUTO:6900000:FEC_NONE:QAM_256:6210:6221:11120
 +# now to watch HDTV (thanks fefe for 'demuxer lavf' hinting!):
 +mplayer dvb://"arte HD" -demuxer lavf -cache 15000 -framedrop
