DVB-H on the FreeRunner

I have managed to get the Freerunner to reproduce MP4 video over DVB-H received by a Pinnacle nano stick.

Steps to follow

1.- Configure the Toolchain (http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Toolchain)

2.- Compile the kernel with DVB enabled (in .config CONFIG_DVB_CORE=y, CONFIG_DVB_USB_DIB0700=y)

   Because the dib0700 doesnt have PID filtering and the FR has USB1.1 you will have to remove the check in linux-2.6/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/dvb-usb-init.c
   so, comment the check
               /*
               if (d->udev->speed == USB_SPEED_FULL && !(adap->props.caps & DVB_USB_ADAP_HAS_PID_FILTER)) {
                 err("This USB2.0 device cannot be run on a USB1.1 port. (it lacks a hardware PID filter)");
                 return -ENODEV;
               }
               */


3.- Get DVB utils (the Hackable1 .deb works fine)

4.- Compile Mplayer with Live555.

5.- Follow the instructions here http://dvbh.kilu.de/ to set the DVB iface

6.- Play
