    I have got a tv tuner that works pretty well on pandora.

    I tested with vlc and wanted a better alternative. In my laptop i use kaffeine and want something like that. Where I just have a file with channels stored and can easily change.

    Is there any option in pandora? Kodi supposedly supports tv tuners but seems it doesn't detects mine.

    You can achieve a playlist with vlc.
    MPlayer works, but I never tested DVB with a frontend.

    The Best Frontend to view DVB TV is Me-tv from Launchpad.

    I begged for years to get this wonderfully Piece of Software for us.

    Even Ptitseb tried to compile it and it is fully of Depencies.

    With This Software you can:
    Scan for TV Channels
    View Tv,
    Record TV,
    Schedule Records with EPG
    And use the EPG.

    Its a wonderfull little Software and i am very
    very dissapointed because we had an old working Version which Segfault with the Rescent OS Uptades.

    It work with Dvb-c,Dvb-t,Dvb-s,Atsc and other Digital TV Tuners.

    I whish i have this Software on the Pandora Zaxxon.
    Even @ptitSeb was not able to compile it because that "Beast of Depencies Libraries"

    I tried it many Times to Compile but never got it working.

    The only Chance is to get it run under Slackware for Pandora which work very well as a seperate OS from SD Card.


    Edit:
    Kodi will work not bad for this too but the Pandora Version do not have a PVR/TV viewing Backend.

    Ah yes, Me-tv, I had forgotten what was the name (I compiled MythTV or something like that, no too long ag, but once compiled I realized it wasn't the right name). I'll try again soon...

    look @ingoreis what I have on my Pandora:
    preview1.png
    In french for the Screenshot, sorry, but it will adapt to the current locale of course... Looks a bit cramped in the Pandora screen. I have no hardware to test with, so it'll probably end up in the Beta thread for proper testing....
     
    TeDaDeS, FBnil and ingoreis like this.

    This would be really nice, never thought of the Pandora as a mobile TV.

    Although when I said DVBT, I really meant ATSC... as I'm in North America, My tuner supports both.

    Things to do: add device to wiki. Test playkist for channels in vlc and try me-tv.

    @Brend That depends on the country.
