[SOLVED] 1004 DVB cards - missing drivers
« on: July 15, 2012, 10:09:20 pm »
Hi All,
Just did a clean install from the latest snapshot (1st July). My tuners aren't detected/working for mythtv. Do I need to add drivers. I assumed they would be auto-detected as they both work in 0810.

I have a:
1. Kworld KW-DVB-T 399U USB
2. HVR2200 PCIe DVB-T
Both worked fine in 0810

Cheers,
Barney

Please sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree and tell me if this resolves your issue.
I never quit... I just ping out.

OK. That worked for one of the cards (kworld usb).

Mythtv is a bit hit and miss. Keeps crashing, but might be poor signal with that device as it only picked up a few channels.

Thanks l3mce

Thanks again l3mce.

Turns out I didn't have the firmware for the HVR2200. Got it as follows:
Code: [Select]
cd /lib/firmware/
wget http://steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/firmwares/3978608/v4l-saa7164-1.0.3.fw

After reboot it got detected and now it works. Will rescan and try the above fix if it's still flaky.

OK. Still flaky so applied the above fix.

MythTV is definitely better. I can play on the core and an md that have had the fix. Still having some problems with encoders/mythfill database. Can't delete encoders using:
computing->mythTV setup

If I do they just re-appear when I go back in. At the moment I have 4 encoders showing in mythweb but I'm only using the HVR2200 twin tuner.

This is probably better in another thread though. I'll keep playing.

l3mce's suggestions have all more or less worked for me. That plus finding the missing firmware.
Thank you.
