  Just a little info and looking for some debug help. I found this 
command from the videolan froum

/vlc dvb-t:// :dvb-frequency=514000000 :dvb-bandwidth=8 :sout-all 

Now of course i have to replace the values with my values but i have not 
found them all yet. but even if it try and remove eg the subtitles 
export bit i still get errors as follows.

/[0x8679c20] main stream out error: no sout stream module matched 
[0x86797a8] main stream output error: stream chain failed for 
[0x867def0] main input error: cannot start stream output instance, aborting
For some reason my VLC does not liek me doing this stuff?
