Generic BTTV card drivers unloading on boot
« on: October 11, 2005, 05:16:36 pm »
I have a generic BTTV card (a WinTV GO PCI) its just a generic card, should load as /dev/video0 and be available to video4linux but its not showing up under myth.  when I ran dmesg, I see the card is properly detected, and configured, but is then immediately removed from the system.  here is the contents of my dmesg. I have only put the end of the output here (from where it finds the card on) there are about 180 lines before this, tell me if they would be of any help.  Any guidance on getting this card working on the system would be great.  Thank you

here is the output of my dmesg:

Sorry, forgot to point out the lines further down after the detection that read:

bttv0: unloading
msp3400: chip reset failed

although I cant see why bttv is unloading.

Thank you in advance

@ebetan

After Pluto has started up try reloading the bttv drivers at a command prompt by issuing the following

  modprobe bttv

you can check that the drivers have loaded by issuing the following command

  lsmod | grep bttv

If bttv has successfully loaded, mythtv should pickup the card and /dev/video and /dev/vbi should be shown as defaults when adding a new capture card.

If everything is ok, then add the modprobe bttv to one of the startup scripts

You can blacklist snd-bt87x in hotplug and then disable alsaconf-noninteractive in the boot scripts.
