The Kaffeine Start-up Screen
Kaffeine - a full featured media player that can fulfil all the basic multimedia tasks.
All images are clickable, in order to show full size images. Use the back button to return here.


With Kaffeine you can:

  • Watch Digital TV

If you have a working dvb-t card in your system, Kaffeine knows about it and shows a button on the start tab "Digital TV". It shows as well a new configure option on top "Television".

A new device is added
Configuring the device

All you have to do, after you select your source, "hessen-de" in my case, is to click the start scan button.

The Channel Scan Screen

Add then the found/selected channels to the left (as in the screenshot already done) and you're ready to watch TV.

The next screenshot shows the video and channel select window:

Selecting the channel

Recording is as simple as well:

Setting the recording time

There's even a program guide:

The programming guide

This helpful tutorial gives another view of how to set up and use Kaffeine to watch digital TV.
