DVB Cards info needed for Templates
« on: December 19, 2009, 08:14:02 pm »
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


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.

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.

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. :(

Failed to open /dev/video0: No such file or directory

I just ordered the KNC ONE PCI DVB-C card.... i will post results, the moment the card arrives.

And Mandigo, as i haven't tried creating templates before and i got lost in the wiki, i would love to see some wiki/documentation, so that more of us could suuport in little babysteps. How about that idea?
Cheers,
Pat

if you get a failed to open on v4l2-ctl -n

that is due to the card not having other inputs for capturing out side of the DVB input so its not a problem

Keep em coming guys

I have a hauppauge hvr-1300.

I will post the results as soon as I can.

I tried to get the analogue RCA/phono input to work with Myth TV and couldn't, so I'm glad to see its not just me and/or the HVR-1300 card.

+1 on this card,  mines the OEM without any remote if that makes a difference

do you still need the output?

colinjones, BTW how did you get mythtv to recognise this card ? i had a look at the mythtv wiki and it seems the 0810 recognises it but how do i get mythtv to use it ? (Im not sure if this hijacking but i though i might ask here )

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.

sorry can't help, I've never tried to get that card working with MythTV. However, I'm certain that totallymaxed's crew has!

+1 on this card,  mines the OEM without any remote if that makes a difference

do you still need the output?

colinjones, BTW how did you get mythtv to recognise this card ? i had a look at the mythtv wiki and it seems the 0810 recognises it but how do i get mythtv to use it ? (Im not sure if this hijacking but i though i might ask here )

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)

We dont have a device template for the T500... cue Thom to give me a 'bashing' for not having one ;-)

...but we do have it working very well using our V4l package (PM me if any of you would like a copy...its DKMS based so will work correctly on 0710 or 0810...or indeed 0910 too ;-)  )...and reliably in Myth now. The only issue we see is that if we reboot the T500's do not get in initialised properly from a 'warm' firmware boot. The solution is to do a shutdown, remove the power for 15 secs or so, then powerup and all is well. This is an irritation but compared to before when the T500 was so unstable it was unusable its very acceptable!

All the best for Xmas and for the new year too!

Does anybody have the right configuration in the MythTV Backend for my Hauppauge Nova-S plus (DVBs)? Is it similar to the Nova-T? I had it working on a 0710 istallation, now I have 0810 beta2 and can't find the right configuration any more.

Thanks so far
freaky

Again... at the risk of Thom bashing me again (Twice in a single afternoon!) the Nova-S should we configurable directly in Myth backend setup until Mandingo has a template for it.

All the best for Xmas
