I have recently installed a Winfast DVT1000T on Ubuntu 9.04.
It seems to be registered by Me-TV but it doesnt lock onto any channels. I am in australia near melbourne and have tried a channel config file for that region with no luck.
The problem is i know that the antenna works with an analog tv and a digital set top box.
any ideas?

Try installing Kaffeine.
If your card supports blindscan, you can do this with kaffeine.

w_scan can be helpful too :


After install, just open up your terminal and issue following command :

sudo w_scan
