First off I need to specify that I'm trying to get this card setup for dvb-t. (satellite later, don't have one yet :-) ) Do you use the HVR-3000 with dvb-t too?
With the HVR-4000 there seem to have multiple frontends. (I don't personally really grasp what this really is at the moment... confused about adapterN, frontendN and demuxN)
Does your HVR-3000 have multiple frontends too? I guess it should as the HVR-3000 is a tri-mode card, whereas the HVR-4000 is a quad-mode card.
I have the HVR-4000 working with Kaffeine. There it shows dvb:0 and dvb:1.
One way or the other Kaffeine handles this cleanly. One can scan both for 'channels'.
If I try to use dvb-scan I am unable to get the same results.
It seems a scan can be directed like this:
usage: scan [options...] [-c | initial-tuning-data-file]
atsc/dvbscan doesn't do frequency scans, hence it needs initial
tuning data for at least one transponder/channel.
-c scan on currently tuned transponder only
-v verbose (repeat for more)
-q quiet (repeat for less)
-a N use DVB /dev/dvb/adapterN/
-f N use DVB /dev/dvb/adapter?/frontendN
-d N use DVB /dev/dvb/adapter?/demuxN
Allthough verbose messages show improvement, I'm not able to use dvb-scan to pipe to a channels.conf file.
More impotantly though, in mythtv-setup, in "Capture Card Setup" I should be able to select the DVB Card Number... (adapterN, frontendN see above).
If you get this right, instead of Disecq you get a scan button.
I have managed to get this far. When I scan for channels here, you can see the card is indeed being scanned, but apart from that it does not seem to 'store' channel information somewhere.
I have read http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-HVR-4000
that Myth v0.21 does not know about multiple frontends (yet)
I have applied the solution with the symbolic links to create an additional device. Have you done this too? If not, how did you select dvb-t in the card setup?Could you possibly post some screenshots of your mythtv-setup?
At the moment I'm kind of stuck here. Not sure how to take it further from here..
It seems so odd I can use Kaffeine to watch TV but cannot get MythTV to do the same....
Tips? Leads? Greatly appreciated!
