Description Fabian Köster 2010-07-09 08:50:10 UTC
The use-flag 'dvb' which enables Digital Video Broadcasting (TV) support is masked for arm-arches via /usr/portage/profiles/arch/arm/use.mask.

The comment is "# havent tested yet", I actually did test it and I can report that it works very fine here on armv7a (IGEPv2).

So please remove the flag from use.mask.

Thanks in advance!

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Fabian Köster 2010-07-09 08:53:08 UTC
What I actually tested:

* Kernel's dvb_usb_dib0700 driver
* media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-firmware
* media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-headers
* media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-apps
* media-video/mplayer USE=dvb

The device works without problem, the scanning tool from dvb-apps works as expected and I can watch DVB with mplayer.

Tested and works fine here, too, on armv5tel (Marvell SheevaPlug).  Have tested:

* dvb_usb_af9015 kernel module
* media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-firmware
* media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-headers
* media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-apps
* media-libs/libdvb
* media-tv/mythtv-0.22_p24255

All works as expected - can scan for and tune into DVB-T channels, and either record locally or stream the broadcast over the network.

dvb unmasked, thanks for testing
Comment 4 Andrew Coles 2011-03-25 23:42:18 UTC
The dvb keyword has recently been masked again, so this bug is open again.  Please unmask it.

Not masked for ages.
