I am trying to get HDHomeRun Dual to work with Kaffeine. I installed DVB per the instructions here:

but at the end, when I install, I get the following error:

Setting up dvbhdhomerun-utils (0.0.13-1) ...

start: Job failed to start

invoke-rc.d: initscript dvbhdhomerun-utils, action "start" failed.

dpkg: error processing dvbhdhomerun-utils (--configure):

 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Errors were encountered while processing:


E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I've been searching and I believe it has to do with DVB_core, but I cant seem to find a solution. I'm running 12.10. Truth be told, outside of excel, my last bout with programming was Basic...many, many (many) years ago, so I'm a bit of a noob with this.

Thanks for any help
