I am using the Hauppauge WinTV-NEXUS-S DVB Card ver 2.2. see here for wiki info; http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/FF_Rev._2.2_DVB-S_Cards

After following this Wiki article here http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_install_DVB_device_drivers
Quote
In any regard, once you find and obtain the necessary firmware for your device, copy it into the appropriate hotplug directory. The location of this directory depends on your distribution, but normally it's one of these:

/lib/firmware
/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware

Because that LMCE did not recognized my card, it proberly needs a new firmware. I downloaded
Quote
dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622
from LinuxTV.org. So then I wanted to take the downloaded firmware file, and place it in the /lib/firmware folder in LMCE. When I do this in KDE it gives me Access denied dialog box,,,, ???

How do I get root/access to copy files in the KDE enviroment/GUI/desktop ???

I have read a loot on this forum using sudo su in terminal window with linuxmce password, but no change. Also accessed the network with my username and password, but still no access...

Do I have to do the file transfer through the terminal window or what...!

This is bugging me now, something is kidding me :P

Please point me in the right light wave :D

Hi there,

Your firmware file  needs to be copied into this directory on your Core;

Code: [Select]
/lib/firmware/2.6.22-14-generic/
From the KDE Desktop open the Konsole Terminal program its in the 'K' menu under 'System'. Now in the Konsole window type the following;

Code: [Select]
sudo su - <return>

Enter your password when asked. Now we need to use the 'cp' command to copy the firmware file into the correct directory;

Code: [Select]
cp /home/dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622 /lib/firmware/2.6.22-14-generic/ <return>

Now in the line above I have assumed that the dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622 file is in your /home directory... you need to substitute the actual path to where the firmware file is on your Core. So replace '/home/dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622' with the actual path to the firmware file in the line above.

Once you have copied the firmware file into the correct directory you should reboot. Once your Core is back up go back to KDE and open the Konsole app and then type the following command;

Code: [Select]
dmesg | grep "DVB" <return>
You should see something like below... which is the output I get on my Core with three DVB card installed and configured;

Code: [Select]
linuxmce@dcerouter:/home$ dmesg | grep "DVB"
[   18.224000] bttv0: detected: AVermedia AverTV DVB-T 771 [card=123], PCI subsystem ID is 1461:0771

Thanks Andrew for your detailed replay!

But I still cant get it to work :-\

I checked that the file is in Home directory:


and the destination:


Then entered the string in the Terminal Konsol as decribed in your post. It returned No such file or directory:


An other thing I noticed is that in the folder
Code: [Select]
/lib/firmware/2.6.22-14-generic/ there are a file named dvb-ttpci-01.fw so thats the same as my file, except for missing the -2622 extension. And all the other dvb files are ending on .fw extension's.... ??? This is not logical for me :o

Am I still doing something wrong here Andrew?

Still fighting air here... :P

It's /lib/firmware/... not /lib/firmaware/... pay attention to what you're doing.  :P

Ooops! that is just  :-[

Well, then I go a step further:

Code: [Select]
dcerouter_71391:~# dmesg | grep "DVB"
[   16.720000] DVB: registering new adapter (Technotrend/Hauppauge WinTV Nexus-S rev2.X).
[   17.364000] DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...

The wiki said to change the user/password. How do I do that? I found the folder

var/lib/vdradmin-am
but have no access to it (there is a big lock on it!!)

To open the firewall in web admin, it looks like it need a IP adress. 

Ok, time to go to bed. Pick it up later.

Please comment on this!!

Multible times!!!

The wiki said to change the user/password. How do I do that? I found the folder
Quote
var/lib/vdradmin-am
but have no access to it (there is a big lock on it!!)

To open the firewall in web admin, it looks like it need a IP adress. 

Ok, time to go to bed. Pick it up later.

Please comment on this!!



Hi there,

Firstly you need to do as Zaerc suggests in his post.... you must generate a valid channels.conf for your local DVB-T TV transmissions. Follow the instructions I posted on the Wiki for generating a valid VDR channels.conf as Zaerc suggests - look here http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/VDR#Scanning_for_DVB-T_Channels

Next you need to use the joe text editor to edit the vdradmind.conf so that it uses a private username/password and not the default ones that are there immediately after installation. Look at my vdradmin-am Wiki page and use the 'joe' editor (or another text editor of your choice);

Code: [Select]
joe /var/lib/vdradmin-am/vdradmind.conf
Now in joe edit the line below to have a password that is private to you;

Code: [Select]
PASSWORD = linvdr

Change the 'linvdr' default password in the line above to something else. My example below uses 'oranges';

Code: [Select]
PASSWORD = oranges

Now edit the Line below which contains the default User name to something private to you;

Code: [Select]
USERNAME = linvdr

Below I change the default username from 'linvdr' to 'apple';

Code: [Select]
USERNAME = apple

Now save the changes to the vdradmind.conf by typing Cntrl+K+X

Now follow the instructions for restarting vdr & vdradmin-am on the Wiki and your all set...

All the best
