Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB)

You can do real-time capture of a full transport stream of Broadcast TV. Record television programs using CINELERRA-GG by setting up ahead of time to start recording later at the specified time. Then you can use CINELERRA-GG to watch later and easily fast forward through the commercials or edit the program, deleting the commercials, to watch uninterrupted. Some details may be slightly different than what it is in the United States. There are 3 requirements you must have to take advantage of this capability.

  1. You need to have a suitable DVB Adapter such as the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 950Q usb adapter. Make sure it is the linux version, not the new version.
  2. Your DVB adapter on your PC should connect to a broadcast antenna input.
  3. For now, you may have to run as the root user.
