I have a pinnacle 310i digital freeview pci card, and I’m having a nightmare getting it to work.
I have read 99% of all forums and wiki pages relating to this product, but I’m new to Linux so not sure if I’m doing the right thing half the time.
I have installed Mercurial and installed/updated V4L.
I have a couple of questions:
1. Should I have set linuxmce up with MythTV or VDR (Mythtv said it’s for analogue and VDR said it’s for Digital, I have tried both)
2. When setting up Mythtv Backend adding a capture card, I have tried Analogue with V4L which tells me I have a pinnicle310i, when I scan for channels I only get BBC1,BBC2,ITV & CH4 terrestrial channels only. When I set it up as DVB it tells me the device is a Philips TBA00046, which according to some forums is the correct firmware. however when I scan for channels it shows there is noise at 100% and the signal goes up and down as if there were channels being detected but is just say's no signal.
The best page relating to this device is:
However it links to:
And this site is having major problems & at the moment site is down.
On the first link above it tells me to:
"Essentially, build the drivers as shown in the Intro then (as root) run "
how do I run as root??? then it goes on to say:
cp dvb-fe-tda10046.fw /lib/firmware
If anyone can help me set this up I would be grateful.
