    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:

    • Play:
      • Audio files
      • Video files
      • VCDs
      • DVDs
    • 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:
