Pluto 2.0.0.38 with PVR-350, no live TV

(1/2) > >>

archived:
I can not get live TV with my PVR-350, just snow.  I'm wondering what driver others are using that have this same Hauppauge card.  Hardware and/or connections are not an issue in my system and I doubt that configuration is either as I have been running KnoppMyth on this system prior to this latest attempt at Pluto.  I even put KnoppMyth back on it to verify that I was doing the Mythtv-setup identical.  So now I'm back to Pluto 2.0.0.38 and MythTV 0.19 and can't get a live TV picture.  Here is what I did (continues below this xterm output). I tried installing ivtv-0.4.3 but using the generic install method it fails with:

So I tried the Debian install instructions for ivtv but it failed for packages dependencies that could not be met, sorry I don't have a copy of the failed packages at this time.

My last attempt to get the drivers installed was to use pluto-admin and get them from yttron, so that's what I am using now which is what I am getting the snow picture with.

Here is my dmesg tumer output if of any value:

dcerouter_4114:/etc/apt$ dmesg | grep tuner
tveeprom 0-0050: tuner model is LG TAPE H001F MK3 (idx 68, type 47)
tuner 0-0061: chip found @ 0xc2 (ivtv i2c driver #0)
ivtv0: i2c attach to card #0 ok [client=(tuner unset), addr=61]
tuner 0-0061: type set to 47 (LG NTSC (TAPE series))

Thanks for any help,

Hi,

I can confirm that PVR350 and Pluto and Live tv works for me - but don't know how to help you...

probably not your problem, but when upgrading ivtv you have to power off machine completely, so new firmware can get loaded...

Knowing that it should work is a good starting point.  Which ivtv firmware did you use? or from ivtv or from another location?  Also what version?

Thanks,

Sadly, I've made quite some compilations of ivtv and I remember that mythtv started to work only some time ago for me (various settings problems). So I'm not sure anymore what I do use on regular binary basis, and what are leftovers from before. But can check for more info if you need any specific infos ...

I have the same problem, but my IVTV looks sligthly different.

In the end there are 2 messages that I believe are showing a problem, i.e "tuner type not set".

In my syslog messages i get those lines each and every time I try to change to a different channel in MythTv.

Reading around on forums it seems it could be related to some mixed version of ivtv driver, but I did not install anything but ivtv driver that comes with Pluto (that claims to be 0.4.2).

I tried both ivtv firmware from yttron and from ivtvdriver.org with same unlucky result.

Any idea on how get rid of this snow ?
Should  Pluto run with MythTv out of the box, or are there some known issues that may suggest some manual hack?

Thanks and regards
Marco
