Specify which adapter number to use


Script that uses the perl Linux::DVB::DVBT package to provide DVB-T adapter functions.

Specify the channel name to record, the filename of the recorded file (which may include a directory path and the directories will be created as needed), and the duration of the recording. Note that the filename should end with .ts file extension.

The duration may be specified either as an integer number of minutes, or in HH:MM format (for hours & minutes), or in HH:MM:SS format (for hours, minutes, seconds).

The program uses a "fuzzy" search to match the specified channel name with the name broadcast by the network. The case of the name is not important, and neither is whitespace. The search also checks for both numeric and name instances of a number (e.g. "1" and "one").

For example, the following are all equivalent and match with the broadcast channel name "BBC ONE":

    BbC One
    b b c    1
