wintv nova-se2 on lmce 0810: tuning failed
« on: September 19, 2010, 07:27:22 pm »
tried now for over 2 days to get channel-scan working on my core. LMCE-Wiki does say that this card works out of the box since 0810 alpha. I'm using latest install from DVD.

dmesg does output:
Code: [Select]
[   13.762427] cx88[0]: subsystem: 0070:9202, board: Hauppauge Nova-S-Plus DVB-S [card=37,autodetected], frontend(s): 1
[   13.919696] tveeprom 0-0050: TV standards ATSC/DVB Digital (eeprom 0x80)
[   14.923963] cx88/2: cx2388x dvb driver version 0.0.8 loaded
[   14.923970] cx88/2: registering cx8802 driver, type: dvb access: shared
[   14.923978] cx88[0]/2: subsystem: 0070:9202, board: Hauppauge Nova-S-Plus DVB-S [card=37]
[   14.923984] cx88[0]/2: cx2388x based DVB/ATSC card
[   15.063640] DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[0])
[   15.063648] DVB: registering adapter 0 frontend 0 (Conexant CX24123/CX24109).

I did stop vdr and then tried a

Code: [Select]
scan -o vdr /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E > channels2.conf

and get:
Code: [Select]
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 12551500 V 22000000 5
>>> tune to: 12551:v:S0.0W:22000:
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
>>> tune to: 12551:v:S0.0W:22000: (tuning failed)
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
ERROR: initial tuning failed
dumping lists (0 services)
Done.

any help or hint would be very appreciated!
Thx in advance

According to the log-snippets you posted this is indeed correct.  Not being able to get a decent signal is an entirely different issue.

during last view evenings I tried among other to tune by kaffeine-app (same there, no stations found) and I did update v4l-drivers (with reboot...) to the latest ones at the core. But still no change... still scan-command does tell me that it cannot tune.
I did as well check the satellite-signal with my receiver & TV... that one is very ok. I just hope anybody has still a good idea what to do/check/change to get it working.

Thx in advance for any help!

A few checks
 - Are you using the same cable run checking the signal on satellite receiver and then on tuner card?
 - I'm assuming you are passing in the scan file appropriate for the satellite your dish is aimed at?
 - Do you have anyone that could give you a loan of another card? or maybe get them to check your card on their set-up?

definitively yes.

yes, it's the same which I tested on my dreambox

OK, then I got to check the hardware... Although the same card did actually gave me some liveTV on mythTV at lmce 7...

Can it be that I'm missing some firmware? If so, I got to check on the cx88 (connexant) side or on Haupauge (vendor) or on the product name?
