All tables are now using DVBv5 format. That allows suporting all standards available on a standard way. GENERATING FILES TO THE LEGACY DVBV3 FORMAT =========================================== A Makefile target is provided to convert to the legacy channel format. For it to work, you need to have v4l-utils installed (specifically, the v4l-utils package that contains the dvbv5 utils). Be sure that you have at least version 1.4.0 installed, or, if you're compiling v4l-utils from its source. Versions below may work too, but some DVB files won't be properly parsed with earlier versions. This is the minimal changeset of v4l-utils required for it to work: commit 64751eb98a15b9c0077d8c2e4409b9b69ac80448 Date: Fri Sep 5 15:50:43 2014 -0300 Subject: libdvbv5: make sure that all needed properties are filled You can download and install v4l-utils from: http://git.linuxtv.org/cgit.cgi/v4l-utils.git/ Once having it installed, generating all the tables usind DVBv3 channel format is as easy as running: $ make clean $ make dvbv3 The files can also be individually converted from DVBv5 to DVBv3 with: $ dvb-format-convert -I dvbv5 -O channel dvb-c/ch-Rega-Sense legacy-format-ch-Rega-Sense And converting back into DVBv5 format with: $ dvb-format-convert -I channel -O dvbv5 legacy-format-ch-Rega-Sense dvb-c/ch-Rega-Sense Plese notice that comments are not preserved when doing the conversions. PS.: If you're willing to submit new entries and/or corrections, please be sure to send them at the DVBv5 format and sending them via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. INSTALL ======= In order to install the files, use: $ make install By default, it will install the files at /usr/local/share/dvbv5. In order to install the legacy v3 formatted files, use: $ make install_v3 Don't forget to run "make dvbv3" before running the above command, in order to convert the files to the legacy format. By default, it will install the files at /usr/local/share/dvbv3. There are a few extra parameters that could be used to define where the files will be stored: PREFIX=<dir> (default: /usr/local) DATADIR=<dir> (default: $(PREFIX/share) DVBV5DIR=<subdir> (default: dvbv3) DVBV3DIR=<subdir> (default: dvbv5) So, if it is desired to install both v3 and v5 files at a tmp file, under the current dir, the install command would be: $ make install install_v3 PREFIX=`pwd`/tmp Installing dvbv5-formatted files at /home/myuser/dtv-scan-tables/tmp/share/dvbv5...done. Installing dvbv3-formatted files at /home/myuser/dtv-scan-tables/tmp/share/dvbv3...done. Please also note that install takes some time, as there are lots of files to be copied.
