on the first try:

Yes, I've read that web page, but it does not help me.
I've tried Kaffeine and VLC, but neither of them produces any TV input.
Kaffeine does have the option for digital TV, but I have not been able
to get any TV data.

xbmc does not have any TV input: it does not recognise the Nova-T as
input. Futhermore, I do not understand MythTV setup. I have not been
able to install the mythtv MySQL initial file because I'm denied access
to the MySQL database.

This is all very confusing. In the first instance, I'd simply like to
watch TV on my Linux PC without sophisticated DVR functions. Can anybody
help me?

I've heard people say good things about tvtime, which
you can install from the debian repos

I've installed tvtime, but it does not get any input from my Nova-T USB
stick. No /dev device is mentioned by the kernel. It said "registering
adapter 0 frontend 0 (DiBcom 7000PC) and the kernel issued the message
"DVB: registering new adapter (Hauppauge Nova-T Stick)". The kernel also
refers to "input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as
/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usr1/1-1/1-1.5/rc/rc1/input7" whatever
all that means. The final kernel message is

"dvb-usb: Hauppauge Nova-T Stick successfully initialized and connected."

So, the kernel recognises the device, but I am unable to get information
from the device to any programs.

What now?
