Digital TV device node file names depend on udev configuration. For example, while frontends are typically found at/dev/dvb/adapter?/frontend?, the actual file name can vary from system to system, depending on the udev ruleset.

The libdvbv5 provides a set of functions to allow detecting and getting the device paths in a sane way, via libudev.

Typedef Documentation

typedef int(* dvb_dev_change_t) (char *sysname, enum dvb_dev_change_type type, void *priv)

Describes a callback for dvb_dev_find() sysname: Kernel's system name for the device (dvb?.frontend?, for example) @type: type of change, as defined by enum dvb_dev_change_type

Note

: the returned string should be freed with free().

struct dvb_dev_list* dvb_dev_seek_by_adapter (struct dvb_device * dvb, unsigned int adapter, unsigned int num, enum dvb_dev_type type)

Find a device that matches the search criteria given by this functions's parameters.

Parameters

dvb pointer to struct dvb_device to be used
adapter Adapter number, as defined internally at the Kernel. Always start with 0;
num Digital TV device number (e. g. frontend0, net0, etc);
type Type of the device, as given by enum dvb_dev_type;

Returns

returns a pointer to a struct dvb_dev_list object or NULL if the desired device was not found.

Examples dvb-fe-tool.c, dvbv5-scan.c, and dvbv5-zap.c.

Return data about a device from its sysname.

Parameters

dvb pointer to struct dvb_device to be used
sysname Kernel's name of the device to be opened, as obtained via dvb_dev_seek_by_adapter() or via dvb_dev_find().

Returns

returns a pointer to a struct dvb_dev_list object or NULL if the desired device was not found.
