DVico HD5 Gold Plus - analog not cable scanning
« on: July 24, 2008, 07:18:37 pm »
Have spent 4-5 hours today trying all kinds of different combo's hoping to get this card working. To no avail. I'm using Kubuntu 7.10 and LinuxMCE 7.10.

The digital cable scan works fine. I pick up all the available digital channels. I've been following this link to  get the HDTV5 Gold working:

The following command screwed up my dmesg output (far as I could tell everything was loaded as required)
Quote
bill@dcerouter:~$ dmesg | grep -i cx
[ 3261.247205] cx88_wakeup: 6 buffers handled (should be 1)
represents about 2 hundred or so lines of dmesg output.

In "Capture Card Setup":
Card type:  DVB DTV capture card (v3.x), and
DVB Card Number: 0

The following is detected:
Frontend ID: DViCO v2 or Air2PC v3 or pcHDTV HD-5500 Subtype...

Analog Options:
Video device: /dev/video, VBI device: /dev/vbi, Audio device /dev/dsp1, Audio sampling rate (None), Default input Television

Here is where I do not get what is expected -
Input connections:
[DVB]:0] (DVBInput) -> Digital                                <-----here I have my cable provider Brighthouse, not digital, listed
       ->[V4L:/dev/video0](Television)-> Analog         <-----ditto above here, Brighthouse, not Analog
       ->[V4L:/dev/video0](Composite1)-> (None)
       ->[V4L:/dev/video0](S-Video)-> (None)

I've run out of ideas. Anyone got one of these cards up and running? Would love to see someone's modules list.

Any ideas apprciated.
