Just got a Hauppauge WinTV PVR USB2 - now what?
« on: March 01, 2008, 05:53:26 pm »
I just got a Hauppague WinTV PRV USB2. I spent a couple hours messing around with it last night with no results yet. I can't find any instructions on this, so what I tried is running Myth Setup from the computing section on my orbiter. However, ShedulesDirect would not load any listings, and it is still acting like the WinTV PVR USB2 wasn't detected (I did not get a message or anything saying it was detected)
Do I need to add it somewhere in web admin?

thanks

Jon

I was able to get this to work, simply by attaching it.

when you go to the Setup Wizard, it should see the inputs.

Ok - I filed a Mantis bug report/feature request.

There are 2 revisions to the WinTV PVR USB2 harware (2040:2400 and 2040:2900). The 2400 version is supported out of the box. The 2900 version isn't. The driver is supposed to support both revisions according to their website. Hopefully it will be an easy fix.
