Channel scanning tool for DVB and ATSC channels
  3 reviews

W_scan scans for DVB-S/S2, DVB-T, DVB-C and ATSC channels and creates a channels.conf, that can be used directly by the Linux Video Disc Recorder VDR. It is also possible to output channels in a format readable by the czap/tzap tools provided by linuxtv-dvb-zap, xine, totem, kaffeine or me-tv.

Unlike the scan utility in linuxtv-dvb-apps, there is no need to specify an initial transponder and w_scan automatically detects the DVB or ATSC card to be used.

it gets very good channel data , however, then what: leaves me hanging. cant see dvr cant ID country (USA) though I entered code from manual. I guess it works but got too adavanced I guess. the fallback is german or germany, too, from the terminal anyway.

If you need it, you really need it! Not for beginners, but gets advanced channel data from the command line without too much trouble.
