Ok, here's my first pass at TVPlay
The first time you run the application, it will scan for channels on both HDHomeRun tuners. This initial scan can take a long
time (it took about 15 minutes for me). If you know you don't have 8VSB, QAM64, or QAM256 channels, you can specify -No8VSB
, or -NoQAM256
on the command line, to prevent scanning for those modulations (?).
Once scanning is complete, it should automatically tune to the first station. Press Zoom In
and Zoom Out
on the remote to change channels. Press Rotate
to change the zoom mode (Zoom mode is remember for each station).
Channel scanning generates a channels.tv
file in the same folder as the application. You can edit this file manually, if you want. The order of the channels in that file determines the order in which they are available in the application. A "#" at the beginning of a line indicates that that file is disabled. An "@" indicates the current channel (the channel the application will start on). The first line of the file lists what each column means. Deleting the file and re-launching the application will initiate a new channel scan.
Disclaimer: This is very much an alpha
release, so you can expect random crashes (which may or may not require reboots).
