Okay, I started a new thread because otherwise there will be too much info going on in the other ones.
I think I know why my Hauppauge WinTV HVR2200 card is not showing up in LinuxMCE. When the machine boots, as soon as I see the Kubuntu logo I press ctrl+F2 and I can see the loading process. At the beginning I get a message saying that the card is not (Yet) known to the system. Then it says:
Card = <n> and something about insmod. (wife is watching X-factor at the moment, so can't get back on the tv to copy the text exactly)
Below that it lists several versions of the Hauppauge WinTV card, and mine is listed as card 4 and card 5 and card 6.
My question is how do I go about telling the system that my card is type 4 (or 5 or 6). I tried searching the insmod info file, but it really just told me to use modprobe instead, and I'm not really sure how to go about constructing the command properly?
I guess that I need to tell the system that the address listed at the beginning is a certain type of card. Thats as much as I figured. I have to say its over 10 years since I sat down at a console and properly worked with an operating system and hence my poor knowledge of linux commands.
I'll be grateful if anyone can help.
