Oh, have I fiddled with digi TV these last few days... I installed the new Hauppauge DVB-c card in the media machine and have been fiddling to get it to work. The driver itself worked immediately, but I just couldn't get it to find any channels from our cable network. I tried a lot of scanning tools, but nothing helped; it just found nothing. After a few days I got two patches from another Finn, and with those the DVB-driver finds all Free-To-Air channel bouquets. It also finds all the commercial bouquets, although I can't watch them without a CIM-card (which costs :s).
So, now I have a list of the channels along with all the parameters. To actually watch digital TV I'll use the excellent software VDR, which allows for all kinds of nice stuff to be done, a bit like TiVo. Will be fun to play with tonight. :) If all that works I'll start writing some plugins for VDR that do stuff that our old media machine did, such as show digital pics, weather info etc.
We seem to get closer to 0.82. Personally I want 0.82 as a milestone to show that we're still progressing and have not stalled. A lot of small stuff has been fixed since 0.81, and msa and Mikee have fixed a lot of the line of sight (LOS) bugs.
Btw, it anyone interested in maintaining the Windows port of Civil? I don't care one bit about Windows folks, if Civil doesn't run on Windows it's nothing I lose sleep over. So now is a good time for someone with Windows to help out and maintain the Windows installer. TheCorruptor has already made a NSIS installer, so it should be a matter of making sure the stuff runs on Windows and then doing the packaging. Ok, no more ads. :)
