Digital TV and Leffakone

Categories: [ TV/Leffakone ]

Today when Leffakone was supposed to record MacGyver, it didn't record anything. The DVB-T card was able to tune to the right frequency, but nothing came out of it. I openend the case, removed the PCI card, unplugged the wakeup timer, blew on the PCI card, put the card back, and it worked. Then I unplugged the card again, plugged the timer back (the WOL port is between two PCI slots, it can't be reached without removing one of the nearby cards), plugged the card back, and it's still working, currently recording Lois & Clarke. I just hope it will continue to work.

It's not the first time I have trouble with the computer, two years ago, the DVB-T card refused to record anything while I was connected to the computer through the modem with a simple serial terminal. Computers work in mysterious ways…
