Installation issues / Re: Upgrading from 10.04 to 16.04
« on: August 23, 2017, 12:27:33 am »
I made a mistake... it is actually nvidia 304.135 (not 302)

When my MD was doing this, I was watching the dmesg log (on my core) at the file  /usr/pluto/diskless/35/var/log and saw that there were messages stating that no NVIDIA card was found supported by the driver (340 and 352)
in nvidia-install.sh there is this
Code: [Select]
case " $Driver_Current_Supported " in *" $PCI_Id "*)
                case $(lsb_release -cs) in
                        precise)
                                echo "nvidia-340"       ;;
                        trusty)
                                echo "nvidia-352"       ;;
                        xenial)
                                echo "nvidia-361"       ;;
                esac
                return 1
and there is
Code: [Select]
        case $(lsb_release -cs) in
                precise)
                        echo "nvidia-340"
                        return 1
                        ;;
                trusty)
                        echo "nvidia-352"
                        return 1
                        ;;
                xenial)
                        echo "nvidia-361"
                        return 1
                        ;;
        esac
 

I changed them all to "nvidia-304" in the nvidia-install.sh that was in  /usr/pluto/diskless/35/usr/pluto/bin/ directory (for my media director device 35...yours may be different if MD).   You should also be able to edit this file on the core /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh


If I remember, it wasnt until i modified /etc/pluto.conf and changed either 'firstboot' or 'avwizarddone' values (or both) to get it to re-install the correct nvidia-304 driver.

i did some minutes ago.

removed the nvidia drives (NVIDIA NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.102.run --uninstall), removed all nvidia drives (304, 375, etc), downloaded from pastebin, used and the result was the same, with 340. Changed to 304, and the result was the same.

From ssh i could see AVWizard installing 340. did not work. Could see installing 304. Did not work either.

Any driver your recomend?

This hardware configuration worked with 10.04 (well, i build it and used the HD with lmce 10.04).

TIA
Last I looked, in nvidia-install.sh, the selection of which nvidia driver version is based on the version of Ubuntu.  Even though I'm running 14.04, my graphics card only works with the 302 driver.  I edited nvidia-install.sh to only be able to install the 302 driver. 

You may have similar situation

Phenigma, in reply #6 you made mention of a 'manual setup' to do exotic NIC setup.  A while back I had queried about being able to configure a 'bridge' in the web administration network page. 

I know it isn't all that hard to set up the bridging, but getting the firewall configured for the bridged NICs is difficult for novices like me. 

If any reconfigure of the network setup pages is going to be done,  could the bridging aspect be re-visited?

Thanks,
Dennis

I've modified the nvidia-install.sh in /usr/pluto/bin folder.  I've got a card that only works with the nvidia-304 driver.  In the file, any reference to nvidia-xxx was changed to nvidia-304.  This procedure got me up and running

I created a ticket '2703' a while back concerning the mythtv setup scripts.  It is still open.

The ticket documents my findings and what I have dome to get mythtv working on the MDs

Have you tried the vlc-player instead of xine on 1404?  It's still beta but working.

edit: fyi: mp4 is a container, not a codec.  Some players play files that are damaged.  The fact that dragon player plays the files does not automatically infer that the files are not improper or damaged.

Thanks for mentioning VLC.  I've not been happy with xine because zooming stopped working some time ago. 

VLC is working great so far.

I tried setting up VDR, but it is a daunting task to set up a DVB card for a motorized dish.  Mythtv is much more user friendly on system setup.

With the coax output from your cable box connected to the capture card, and with the cable box ON,  go into mythtv setup and try scanning for channels.  I would think the cable box signal should be discovered.

I was under the impression that cable doesn't scramble the local channels.  But I've been wrong before. 

The s-video output from the cable box should not be encrypted for all channels.  I had DirecTV and used a Hauppauge HDPVR to capture the Component out from the sat box.  It worked pretty good, mostly.  Occasional hickups were a slight inconvenience.

There should be a way to set your card to a particular channel, kind of like using a dvd player coax output into a tv set to channel 2 or 3.  I haven't tried this.

You may get HD video if the cable tv IN is direct to the 5500 card.  If it does work. I would recommend a cable splitter to break out signal to your STB and the 5500

If you are NOT using an airial antenna, the setup will be different.  I would try taking your cable IN coax direct to the 5500 card.   You will not use the terrestrial modulation, but one of the cable ones.  Since I am not using cable tv, I cannot make further recommendations.

Google is your friend.  Any other dvb-t capture card will be set up in a similar manner...someone out there has got to be capturing 'some' of the cable channels.  I think local channels are NOT encrypted, but the others are.

Since the card is identified correctly, the next step is go move down to the menu item ' Video Sources'.  If you haven't already, create a 'new video source' .  Name it something descriptive.  Mine is 'LR Broadcast'.  The 'listing grabber' needs to be set to where your video source gets its data (schedules direct if you have an account,  transmitted guide only if your local stations broadcast program data, or no grabber if you don't want program data).
I don't alter anything else on this screen.

Next go to the menu item 'Input Connections'.  You should see at least one DVB entry for the 5500 card.  Select it and press enter to get the configuration screen.  You can modify the Input name and Display name.  The Video Source should be changed to the one you created earlier.  Now, if you will be using data from the local broadcasts, click 'scan for channels'.  A new screen will display. It should already be set to scan channels 2 thru 69 using Broadcast for frequency table and Terrestrial for modulation.  Click Next on lower right, and it should scan the channels and find your local stations.  If not, verify your antenna connection is good and another device can receive signal using it.

Reply back on results...
