I just purchased a DVB-T/FM Tuner card "AverMedia H830 Hybrid USB" by Avermedia (07ca:0830).

Apparently I don't have any DVB-T signal where I live (Or I just can't figure out how to use this 'femon' tool).

Anyways I'm trying to make this card actually work, meaning that I'm looking for an app that will give me the ability to watch FM TV alongside Radio and DVB-T like the Windows version does and I just can't find something like that.

I downloaded Me-TV, no use, Israel is not included as well as no FM support. I see that my only logical way to solve this problem is to utilize MythTV, although a wonderful app I'm not sure I need such a complicated software...

Thank you all for your help in advance!

Kind regards, Yaron Shahrabani.

Note 1: till 12.04, Me-TV was working fine for me, now I use Kaffeine.
Note 2: scanning with Kaffeine is the most simple method for me.
Note 3: you can re-use your channels.conf file from VLC for Me-TV.

And how do I watch FM TV (not DVB-T)? – Yaron Nov 25 '13 at 12:13
@Yaron I do not know for FM TV. I assume that it is more or less the same thing: Plug your tuner card, and then check if it is usable with your TV software (like Kaffeine), if not it might be because you have not the right driver. – Boris Nov 25 '13 at 20:02
