Me TV is a digital television (DVB) viewer for GNOME.
Me TV was developed for the modern digital lounge room with a PC for a media centre that is capable of normal PC tasks (web surfing, word processing and watching TV). It is not designed to be a full-blown media centre, such as MythTV, but will integrate well with the existing GNOME desktop.
Features currently include:
* Completely mouse driven
* Current and future program information
* Instant Record
* Double-click fullscreen
* DVB-T and DVB-C support
* Very simple installation and set up
First off you need to download and install Me TV 0.4.0 for Ubuntu 7.10:
cd to the directory were you saved the deb and type:
sudo dpkg -i me-tv_0.4.0_i386.deb
~/.me-tv/ if it does not already exist:
Now to install dvd-utils to get the TV channels:
sudo apt-get install dvb-utils
Once dvb utils is installed we need to scan for TV channels and this is how we do that:
scan /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t/au-Adelaide > ~/.me-tv/channels.conf
Note: You will have to
/usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t/ directory for your location an substitute
au-Adelaide for your location.
Final step now is to launch Me TV:
Applications –> Sound and Video –> Me TV
