After looking through the postings, I was able to determine that for fc4 I need to run:

> /sbin/modprobe -rv cx88-dvb
> /sbin/modprobe -v cx88-dvb

in order to use the HD3000 with getatsc and xine. I looke at /etc/rc.d/init.d but don't have any idea where to include these commands. (Alll the other modules are already loaded but I don't know where this occurs.)

I'm able to record using:

> getatsc -dvb 0 25 > ch25.ts

and playback using:

> xine -f -B ch25.ts

I can use xine while getatsc is saving the stream. The playback is perfectly smooth. (I'm using an Athlon 64 computer.)

If I try to do:

> getatsc -dvb 0 25 | xine -f -B stdin:/ &

but it's jerky with buffering messages. I have never been able to get mplayer to work (the fc4 system is completely up-to-date using yum).

I have a second Athlon 64 system running fc2 where I use dtvstream with xine-hd. Once I got this system working I haven't updated for fear of breaking it. dtvstream is easy to control but doesn't seem to work with dvb devices in the fc4 system. It would be nice to have more control in getatsc. I haven't been able to get xine-hd and xine-ui to complie on the fc4 system (the posts for fc4 are a bit complicated).

If you want the cx88_dvb driver to load at boot, try the suggestion on this post:

Edit the modules.pcimap file as recommended. This is what did it for me.
