HVR-1600 and USB HVR
« on: April 15, 2008, 03:32:21 am »
I have the HVR-1600 and I know the support is not done for it yet.  Here is the link for the drivers:http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/Cx18.  I installed them as they said, but I can't get LinuxMCE or MythTV to see that there is any inputs.  I even set the media director to have an IVTV tuner since that is what it says it uses.  They said that there is Digital support for the tuner already, but it is still Alpha.  Anybody have any idea how to get it to initialize?  Thank you.

  I was wondering the same thing.  Wish we could finally get support for this card.  Hate to have to break down and buy a PVR 150 when we will be all digital in a year...

There IS the HD Home Run.  It's known to work well.

Yah, and I've had the HVR-1600 from when I used Windows XP MCE.  Along with a PVR-500 and 150.  Problem is now that I'm getting satellite, so the 150 and 500 are near worthless, and the 1600 I want for Free-to-air, and I will get the new Component input card when it comes in for my satellite.

any luck?

i'm new to the linuxmce scene and learning. i installed the cx18 driver last night.

kind of on a similar note, when i try to view TV (after installing the driver), mythTV tries to start (i think). it says it is compiling/configuring/c-something images (i'm at work and don't remember exactly what it said). after that is done (seconds), a screen flashes up for a split second then the screen goes blank. then 20 seconds later or so, the main linuxMCE (orbiter) screen comes back and acts like nothing happened.  so i'll click on TV again and it does it all over again.
