Latest commit 9481e7c Nov 14, 2016 @tpetazzoni tpetazzoni committed with Rename pl-Krosno_Sucha_Gora with only ASCII characters
The pl-Krosno_Sucha_Gora file, added in commit
4cb113f, is the only file that
contains non-ASCII characters in the tree. This causes a number of
build issues with other packages that don't necessarily handle very
well non-ASCII file name encodings.

Since no other file in the tree contain non-ASCII characters in their
name, this commit renames pl-Krosno_Sucha_Gora similarly.

Examples of files that are named with only ASCII characters even if
the city name really contains non-ASCII characters:

  - pl-Wroclaw should be written pl-Wrocław
  - se-Laxsjo should be written se-Laxsjö
  - de-Dusseldorf should be written de-Düsseldorf
  - vn-Thaibinh should be written vn-Thái_Bình

Since there is no real standardization on the encoding of file names,
we'd better be safe and use only ASCII characters.

All tables are now using DVBv5 format. That allows suporting all standards
available on a standard way.


A Makefile target is provided to convert to the legacy channel format.
For it to work, you need to have v4l-utils installed (specifically,
the v4l-utils package that contains the dvbv5 utils).

Be sure that you have at least version 1.4.0 installed, or, if you're
compiling v4l-utils from its source. Versions below may work too, but
some DVB files won't be properly parsed with earlier versions.

This is the minimal changeset of v4l-utils required for it to work:

	Date:   Fri Sep 5 15:50:43 2014 -0300
	Subject: libdvbv5: make sure that all needed properties are filled

You can download and install v4l-utils from:

Once having it installed, generating all the tables usind DVBv3 channel
format is as easy as running:

	$ make clean
	$ make dvbv3

The files can also be individually converted from DVBv5 to DVBv3 with:

	$ dvb-format-convert -I dvbv5 -O channel dvb-c/ch-Rega-Sense legacy-format-ch-Rega-Sense

And converting back into DVBv5 format with:

	$ dvb-format-convert -I channel -O dvbv5 legacy-format-ch-Rega-Sense dvb-c/ch-Rega-Sense

Plese notice that comments are not preserved when doing the conversions.

PS.: If you're willing to submit new entries and/or corrections, please
be sure to send them at the DVBv5 format and sending them via e-mail


In order to install the files, use:
	$ make install

By default, it will install the files at /usr/local/share/dvbv5.

In order to install the legacy v3 formatted files, use:
	$ make install_v3

Don't forget to run "make dvbv3" before running the above command,
in order to convert the files to the legacy format.

By default, it will install the files at /usr/local/share/dvbv3.

There are a few extra parameters that could be used to define where
the files will be stored:

	PREFIX=<dir>		(default: /usr/local)
	DATADIR=<dir>		(default: $(PREFIX/share)
	DVBV5DIR=<subdir>	(default: dvbv3)
	DVBV3DIR=<subdir>	(default: dvbv5)

So, if it is desired to install both v3 and v5 files at a tmp file,
under the current dir, the install command would be:

	$ make install install_v3 PREFIX=`pwd`/tmp
	Installing dvbv5-formatted files at /home/myuser/dtv-scan-tables/tmp/share/dvbv5...done.
	Installing dvbv3-formatted files at /home/myuser/dtv-scan-tables/tmp/share/dvbv3...done.

Please also note that install takes some time, as there are lots
of files to be copied.
