Digital TV in Uganda: Current Status

I’ve added a status page showing current OTA DVB-T channels broadcasting in Uganda.

You can access it at Digital TV Uganda.

Uganda’s digital TV migration is still in its testing phase and only the Kampala area is receiving these streams.

DVB-T tuning data for Uganda

I recently submitted initial DVB-T scan data for Kampala to the dvb-apps package upstream. If you are testing DVB-T2 in Uganda using Linux, please go ahead and clone the latest git sources at:
http://git.linuxtv.org/dtv-scan-tables.git

Its still early, but at least with the latest sources, you do not have to tinker around in your app.

Also, I’m looking for testers in the region. If you’re already using DVB-T with Linux, please contact me.
