       -multi|tsid          group channels into their multiplex
       -list                show just the list of TSIDs (multiplexes)
       -del <tsid>          deletes the specified TSID

OPTIONS ^

-help

Print a brief help message and exits.

-man

Prints the manual page and exits.

-verbose

Set verbosity level. Higher values show more information.

-debug

Set debug level. Higher levels show more debugging information (only really of any interest to developers!)

-check

Ensures that all channels have a valid set of frequency parameters (Note: does not check that these will actually record the correct channel!)

-extra-check

Does extra checking by recording a short amount of program for each channel

-multi

Groups the channels into their associate multiplex (or transponder, or TSID group). This is useful for determining which channels may be recorded together at the same time using the multiplex record facility.

-tsid

Specify the TSID and only the results for that multiplex will be shown

-list

Shows the summary list of available TSIDs

-del

Delete the specified TSID from the configuration file. Also deletes any channels related to that TSID.

-cfg

Specify an alternate configuration directory (containing the dvb-ts, dvb-pr files) to use, rather than using the default.

DESCRIPTION ^

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

Reads the current config files and displays the list of known channels. The displayed information contains:

LCN

The logical channel number (where supported) or just an incrementing index.

Channel Name

The channel name as broadcast

TSID

The transponder ID number (or multiplex number)

PNR

The broadcast program number

Type

Whether this is a TV channel (i.e. contains video), or a radio station (audio only)

PIDs

The PIDs column shows the list of PID numbers for this channel. In brackets are the audio details that specify each audio stream in the program, prefixed by a language code. This information may be useful if you want to set up recording using the PID numbers rather than the channel name.
