Astrometa DVB T2 Stick not working with VLC or Kaffeine

Postby debidant » 2017-12-02 11:07

Hi,

Debian Buster with VLC 2.2.7 and Kaffeine 2.0.13

I have an Astrometa DVB T2 Stick (firmware dvb-demod-nm88473-01.fw loaded) which finds channels with w_scan.

dmesg output:

So far so good. But with kaffeine the channel scan doesn't find any channels.

If I create an .xspf file for VLC with w_scan and open it in VLC I get the errors
Code: Select all

Your input can't be opened:

Make sure the dvb modules are not blacklisted. I have a file called no-rtl.conf in etc/modprobe.d/ that does this because I use my DVB stick as a software defined radio device.

Just checked. There aren't any modules blacklisted at all.

Any ideas?

Sorry that you haven't been able to solve your issue.
I'll be keeping an eye on this topic because I've never managed to use my DVB stick to watch TV, only to listen to the radio.
