mplayer + dvb

I do not write English but can understand, this text was translated by google.
I have a card Tecnhotrend s-3200, which works with kaffeine and vdr however I can not make it start with mplayer. I have this error.

linux-29d2:~ # mplayer dvb://
The -gui option will only work as the first command line argument.
MPlayer dev-SVN-r29796-4.4-openSUSE Linux 11.2 (i686)-Packman (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Teammplayer: could not connect to socket

Can you help me? Thank you.

Hi
You need to scan for channels first;

Once you install the dvb tools and your preferred player, run a channel
scan for example for me in the US I use;


scan /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-NTSC-center-frequencies-8VSB -o zap | tee ~/.mplayer/channels.conf

You need to replace the appropriate configuration file from you area in
the /usr/share/dvb directory.

Thanks now it works!
I would just put the channels.conf I use for vdr within ~ /. Mplayer /

I have another question.
Why the board does not scan the frequencies SymbolRate less than 5000?

>>> tune to: 11651:h:0:3688
DVB-S IF freq is 1901000
__tune_to_transponder:1508: ERROR: Setting frontend parameters failed: 22 Invalid argument
>>> tune to: 11651:h:0:3688
DVB-S IF freq is 1901000
__tune_to_transponder:1508: ERROR: Setting frontend parameters failed: 22 Invalid argument

Done.

Thanks!
