Kamaelia docs : Kamaelia.Device.DVB.Tuner.Tuner


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class Tuner(Axon.ThreadedComponent.threadedcomponent)

Tuner(freq[,feparams][,card]) -> new Tuner component.

Tunes the DVB-T card to the given frequency with the given parameters. Send (ADD, [PID list]) or (REMOVE, [PID list]) messages to its "inbox" inbox to cuase it to output MPEG transport stream packets (with the specified PIDs) from its "outbox" outbox.

Keyword arguments:

  • freq -- Frequency to tune to in MHz
  • feparams -- Dictionary of parameters for the tuner front end (default={})
  • card -- Which DVB device to use (default=0)

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.

__init__(self, freq[, feparams][, card])

x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature

addPID(self, pid)

Adds the given PID to the transport stream that will be available in "/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0"


Returns True if the frontend is not yet locked. Returns False if it is locked.


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
