Installation issues / Re: PVR-350 will not work
« on: July 24, 2009, 05:23:03 pm »
Did a complete re install of LinuxMCE.  Card was still not recognized by the wizard. I had to configure manually.  But this time the TV now works. Seems like some backend issue was clear.  Just need to get the SD programing connection working again..

I just installed Mythbuntu in a new partion. It detected the card but I had to do some setup, but it worked fine. Sorta fine,  reception was very poor but it worked.  I did use the wizard but towards the end of it I saw a message flash for a second that said "not available" . found later it  was not installed so I did it maual and perhaps not correctly.  Atleast now I know all the hardware pieces together work.

One other oddity. Afetr card setup when you populate the database, it took 42 mins. surely that is not right.  It only took 3 mins on MythBuntu to populate the same program information.

I am doing a fresh install now. Mybe that will clean up what is wrong.  If not, I will try 8.10

Installation issues / PVR-350 will not work

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>

Yes that does describe by problem perfectly.  Only thing I could find in the log was the message: AIGLX:screen 0 is not DRI capable.  But this maybe the log from the bootup only to Grub. Not the the boot where the screen where X fails.  Anyway this got we in the right direction.  Replacing drivers is a little beyond me right now.  But I did put a DVI to VGA converter on the video cable and plugged into the VGA port on the screen. Now I can get to LINUXMCE setup.  So great thats got me going.

Now does this mean I can only use the VGA connection?  Or if I update the driver than both would work?

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.
