tuner card in MD working in 8.10?
« on: March 09, 2010, 04:51:18 pm »
Hi guys,

I have a install of beta 8.10 and a lot of things work so far, but I've got problems with my tunercard nova-s plus. It sits in my msi live barebone MD as my core is a zotac mini itx board and has no pci slot. The card gets recognized properly, but I get jerky liveTV with mythtv - video and audio stops every second for a bit. This also happens when watching a recorded show or timeshifted livetv.
My question now is, does anybody have a nova-s running properly or has anyone running his tvcard in a MD well under 8.10? Any thoughts?

thanks
IF

Have you tried this card on other computer??

Or, is the same dish used for a regular satellite tv receptor?

Just to confirm it is a Mythtv/LinuxMCE issue and not a bad signal from the dish.

Also, have you checked this wiki: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Hauppauge_WinTV_Nova-S_Plus_PCI

It says something about a bug on this card related to hardware problems with 22KHz tone generation for DISECQ signalling.

Maybe it is worth trying to apply the patch.

Alejandro.

thanks for your answer!
I had the card running on an other pc on linuxmce 7.10 (as a hybrid) without any problems. I also already checked the signal with a seperate receptor and had good video and full signal.
thanks for the link, I will have a look on that bug.
