Users / DViCo Dual Digital 4 and Dvico Hybrid DVB-T Hardware profiles...?
« on: February 14, 2009, 03:06:48 am »
After a couple of days sifting around for answers I have come to the conclusion DViCo cards are not loved by linuxmce :(
I Would like to try to create a Hardware profile to simplify adding DViCo tuner cards to linuxmce 710...
I realise some people have noted that in linuxmce 810 that DViCo cards are much easier to install and use, however as linuxmce user userable edition has an unclear arrival date......

I will spend some time trying to research exactly how this can be done but I thought I would post here to see if anyone can point me towards some documentation or HowTos for createing hardware profiles. This could be a good step in teaching myself about linux in general or a complete turn off that will send me running for the hills  :o

And if anyone has done this already please do enlighten me on how I can obtain a copy ?

Or is this all silly talk and I'm just going to end up wasting a heap of time trying to achieve an un-achievable goal?

Installation issues / First time Linux User problems with Dvico cards :(
« on: January 31, 2009, 06:52:37 am »

I'll start off by saying that linuxmce is a great idea and as far as i can tell runs everything I need.

I've used both windows xp MCE 2005 and windows vista.
Installation issues thus far using the DL DVD RC710 I belive, Plasma was not being recongnized upon installation. found I had to hold down a shift button when a certain flashing cursor displays. Got past this set up my system, tuner and remote where not found during setup :(

System (built from bits and pieces I had lying around):
XP 2800+
1 gig ram
6800GTS 256mb
40gb IDE HD (operating system drive)
250gb Sata HD (Media Storage)

DViCo Dual Digital 4 Tuner
DViCo DVB-T Hybrid Tuner

ABit or Asus ANF7 mainboard can't remember

problem at the moment is getting the tv tuners to be recognised by MCELinux, I've followed this guide downloaded the drivers and begun compiling ...

I get this error whilst compiling ... tvmixer.c:226: error: 'I2C_DRIVERID_TVMIXER' undeclared here (not in a function) I'm guessing tvmixer.c should be compiled to tvmixer.o ?

Anyhow I can't seem to figure out whats gone wrong...

Anyone had this issue before or wish to point me in the right direction?
Keep in mind I'm very new to linux and the whole konsole thing....

Thanks in advance!!!
