Cut Trim or Merge Videodata on a MAC

He there,

as i just bought my new Macbook. Migrated from Lenovo Windows. I faced a lot of Mac-Noob problems.

As you can image I searched for all windows software, if there is a mac version.

More for that in later posts 🙂

One of the major things I do with my private computer is editing TV Recodrings or holyday videos.

On windows i used AVIDEMUX for that purposes.

And there is a MAC Version !!!

I recommend getting the latest Version!! 64 Bit!!

Installing DVB S Card Firmware on Linux

In my case I got a DVBSky ReceiverCard DVBSKY S960C Usb Box.

This card is already recognized by the linux kernel.

As it was also recognized by tvheadend, I though everything went fine , but the card won’t give me a valid TV signal.

So I downloaded the driver from

copied them to

/lib/firmware/* (all of the files)

restarted the machine. And … it works!!!

For my other usb Sat Receiver I got the necessary infos from

Its basically only the same firmware copy action as it was with the dvbsky receiver.

all worked with tvheadend now!
