MANDINGO:
NEWS FLASH......... NEWS FLASH......... NEW WIKI PAGE WITH A LIST OF PLUG AND PLAY CARDS FOR LinuxMCE KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AS THIS PAGE WILL CHANGE OFTEN
HERE IS A LIST OF PLUG AND PLAY CAPTURE CARDS/DEVICES THAT WORK WITH LinuxMCE AS OF RIGHT NOW  ;D

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Capture_Cards
Im cranking out the DVB cards that will be plug n play with LinuxMCE but i need you guys help with some info and testing.
Current cards that i have completed are the HVR-1600, pcHDTV 5500, HD PVR which needs to be tested.
All templates for the DVB cards will have the analog side of the card disabled by default untill MythTV decides to fix their code.

So that being said what i need is a reply of the card that you use and the vendor ID, and the ports on the card, dont forget make and model

from term run

sudo lspci -vn
post your output for your card complete

if usb device then run
sudo lsusb -vn
post your output for your card complete

then run
sudo apt-get install ivtv-utils
 
install and then run

sudo v4l2-ctl -n
post your ouput for your card complete

also let me know if you had to install and compile drivers for your card and if firmware is needed thanks
you can catch me in the irc channels Linuxmce and Linuxmce-devel

I have the Nova-T-500 which is a USB connection through the PCI interface. I couldn't see a specific PCI entry for it, but I suspect it is the VIA USB card (as I don't think I have any other VIA in the system, the mobo chipset is nVidia)

v4l2-ctl didn't work, its looking for a device here, /dev/video which doesn't exist (running 0710) there is a device under /dev/dvb... several directories and devices for 2 "adapters" etc, but using the --device= option just reports:

ioctl: VIDIOC_ENUMINPUT

I didn't have to compile anything, however I am not using this DVB card right at the moment.

Xtra:
I own a technisat cablestar hd2 which I am currently struggeling to get the kernel module of the mantis drivers to work in LMCE beta2.

I am stuck in hacking my way through the driver code, as currently it produces a kernel Oops when initializing the IR device.

As soon as I get the driver working, I'll be happy to provide a template for this card aswel but as you guys already know, kernel level debugging is a major PITA. :(

Output from lspci will follow as soon as I have my hands on the testsystem again.

MANDINGO:
Bump
for all those that where bitching about DVB cards no one is posting info
Still waiting...... :-\

Output from v4l2-ctl will follow after I have recompiled my MD kernel (compiling right now) and I have urged the mantis module to work. Rumor has it, it is working with an older kernel than 2.6.25 and the mantis driver from s2-liplianin but I want to get it to work with the LMCE0810b2 default kernel, therefore I am hacking debug statements in there and it takes time. So please bear with me. :(
