mythtv help please
« on: June 14, 2009, 07:03:41 pm »
Hi Folks at this now for 4 weeks and still no joy i would really like some help with this,

so let me start,

i did a fresh install of linux mce and i have installed a WinTV-PVR-500, now my problem  is mythtv admin setup doesnt pull in my tv card after me selecting the card,

i selected MPEG-2 Incoder card (PVRX50 , PVR500)

Now when channel editor

when i go to scan for channels  and hit the channel scanner i get the following error in the scan type, failed to open card.

now when i check the md in the admin it shows

PVR Capture Card
PVR-500 - Tuner 1    
PVR-500 - Tuner 2

so mce is picking up the device correctly.

i just cant get it to work,

also my location is ireland

my hardware is

AMD 64 pro with 2 gb ram with 320 hard drive

please advise

cheers

I believe it should have been detected as a 150. why are you adding it manually?
