Installation issues / PVR-350 will not work
« on: July 23, 2009, 06:06:41 pm »
Here are my symptoms:
Go to MythTV frontend from KDE.  Select Watch TV.  Screen goes black.  I can hear sound. I can change channels.
If i press escape to get out sometimes it will exit Mythtv some tomes locks up and I must power off.
I configured Mythtv this way.
1.General: accepted all defaults,  format = NTSC
2. Capture card: selected Mpeg2 encoder card (PVR-x50, PVR-500).  Probed Info: showed my PVR-350.
3. Video source: added new source, entered my SD account info, retrieved lineups (worked)
4. Input source: connected my video source to tuner input-1
exited back to KDE and ran database update. I also ran the channel scan somewhere along the line.

I am using a Geforce FX5200, saw that it was on the supported list and I had it laying around. I am running a gateway GT5458e I got on ebay just for this purpose to play around before I spend and big money.  Machine came with UBUNTU loaded and worked fine. I wiped it out when I loaded LINUXMCE from DVD 64bit version.  KDE or MCE did not like the integrated graphics so I put my FX5200 card in .  I tested the tuner card in my windows machine and it worked fine.
Anyone have any ideas what is wrong?  Would appreciate it.

Just thought of this one:  I am using a KVM switch between my LinuxMCE machine and my windows machine.  It is a trendnet TK-210. Could that be an issue? I will test removing it later today>

Installation issues / Linuxmce wizard does not start

This is my first time install.   I have downloaded Linuxmce 07.10 RCE. Burn DVD as instructed.  Installed from DVD seems to have run all the way to the end. asked me to remove DVD and press enter. I did.  I saw the message "Starting Samba   OK"  flash by.  screen went black for a while then a prompt came up "dcerouter Login:"  and then is it.

I have down loaded twice and burned DVD 3 times.
Anyone have an idea where I went wrong.
