Re: How to Set Up TV and PVR in Mint 20 Ulyana

1) For the recordings to go ahead, does the PC need to be up and running, or will a scheduled recording wake up the PC when required? Yes the PC must be up and running, Kaffeine application needs to be opened and the Hauppauge device not busy, I mean no playback when the recording begins. It would ...

Re: How to Set Up TV and PVR in Mint 20 Ulyana

Will Kaffeine allow me to watch, record and series link as well as provide an EPG? If so, I guess this will make the Hauppauge stick redundant, but I will still use it within Windows Yes, Kaffeine would allow you to watch, record, get EPG, subtitles. Just install it from the repository sudo apt-get...

Re: Accès à distance

À ma connaissance, vino ne supporte que le protocole vnc et non xrdp. Avez-vous essayé depuis remina avec ce protocole? Il est possible d'installer xrdp et xorgxrdp sur le PC professionnel pour utiliser remmina avec ce protocole. Il y a plusieurs discussions en anglais à ce sujet dans ce forum.

Re: USB TV Tuner

Yes, I use the Hauppauge USB tuner Over The Air with the antenna included with the product. You could use dvbv5-zap (from dvb-tools) to record a channel unattended, ahead of time. Output of dvbv5-zap can be sent to ffmpeg while recording to obtain a video format other than Transport Stream. I get Fu...

Re: Remote Desktop Access

Perhaps you could install xrdp on your zabbix server and then use remmina (rdp) to connect. I have done that successfully on an old 32-bit PC running 19.3 xfce. sudo apt install xrdp xorgxrdp You may want to change the file /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh to start the desktop environment of your choice.

Re: TV USB Tuner - Kaffeine Alternative?

You can get closed captions with kaffeine. Click Playback/Subtitle and replace off by "Closed captions 1". You may try w-scan, it shows channels being scanned. sudo apt-get install w-scan w_scan -v -fa -c <country> -L | tee <path>/dvb.xspf Then you could use VLC to watch your available cha...

Wow, it works quite well, thanks for sharing. Image quality is actually better than VirtualBox/Windows 10/SlingPlayer route. However, the sound is slightly offset to the image for both devices I installed with Genymotion, Google Nexus 7 (6.0 - API 23) and Google Pixel (8.0 API 26). In order to see t...

I was so excited when I read your message, I immediately installed konqueror+gnash. Bummer, I have a Slingbox M2 and I got the message "incompatible device". I have to go back to my Amazon Fire stick where Slingplayer still works but for how long?

Re: How do i set a keyboard combo to write a special character?

The easiest way would be to add a Spanish keyboard layout. You can toogle layouts by using Alt+Shift for example. You could also modify the mapping of the German keyboard located in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de. Have a look at https://rlog.rgtti.com/2014/05/01/how-to-modify-a-keyboard-layout-in-lin...

Re: Watch tv

I use Kaffeine without any issues. I access channels Over The Air with an USB Hauppauge TV tuner and I can record programs ahead of time. Make sure you have few OTA channels in your area. I also tried MeTV but I prefer Kaffeine.
