Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9000 TV Tuner No Sound
Mar 14, 2010
I have an ATI All-In-Wonder 9000 AGP4x video card with TV tuner function. I following the description on [URL] where I found a how-to for enabling TV tuner. The tuner works in xawtv and avview but without sound. I plugged the cable in from tuner to my sound card and try to increase volume and/or enable mute on/off but nothing to hear. The sound card line-in input works correctly, because when I attaching my MP3 player I hear sound over the sound card. I think maybe have a register accessing/writing error which handle the TV Tuner sound chips to turn on/off. (the tuner works correctly in Windows XP). I'm using Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS with x86_64 (amd64) actually. The lspci output for Video Card:
I have been just pretty much having fun with Ubuntu and a couple other distros for a couple years and have not yet ran into a problem like this. I'm pretty good in a command line environment although I end up googling syntax a lot b/c of that wonderful memory I have! Anyways..
I am running an older machine: P4P800 ASUS Mobo, P4 2 Ghz, 3G RAM and an ATI Radeon 9000.OS: Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat Issues: Seems that anything that Compiz has to render the brightness is really low. CairoDock (w/ OpenGL) does not render like it does on other machines that I have, looks like garbage. I've come to the conclusion that I need to get a better video driver (Hope I'm correct here otherwise I've been going the wrong direction for awhile now).
Things I've tried through research around the net: I've attempted installing fglrx(command line style) from several tutorials I've found here and there. Most of them for older versions of Ubuntu and if I'm remembering right there have been a few significant changes lately, which may be causing my issues? Of course I've tried the easy ways: Installed all fglrx/ati/radeon related packages in Synaptics Package Manager Checked System > Admin. > Additional Drivers before and after package installations Ati Website - the drivers that they have are for XFree86. I don't think they can run on XOrg - it's a completely different setup? Again, I don't have a great understanding on how the back end of all this works, so bear with em.
I ran: echo options radeon modeset=0 > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf To disable KMS. Rebooted - Video was much worse I then ran: echo options radeon modeset=1 > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf To re-enable KMS Rebooted again. Everything ran fine but I didn't have my Cairo Dock > which I can deal with, that's not why I'm posting.. Well, that's a good chunk of it - there's more but I don't remember most of it as I've been working at this on and off for weeks. Again, a lot of this was tried upon researching anything and everything I could find on the net - so some of it might sound ridiculous, I was just trying anything that would work!!
I am setting up a mythtv/xmbc box on Ubuntu 10.10 (natty does not install on my hardware). I have a Sabrent TV PCIRC tuner card, which seems to work fine with the proper card and tuner settings. My on-board sound is HDA-Intel surround sound, which I have configured as analog duplex.
Currently the sound works fine through my speakers plugged into any jack on the back of the PC (two speakers, one jack). I can watch ripped movies and listen to music. The TV tuner is pumping sound from its external jack -- if I hook it up directly to the speakers it works fine. I can feed the Tuner's sound to the line-in on my motherboard, but nothing comes out. In the sound manager, i have the input device selected and the input level shows that the sound is coming in through the connector, and I can test the speakers and they work fine, but they don't seem to be communicating that the sound coming in needs to be pumped out through the speakers.
I'm having trouble getting this to work, everytime i pop it into the motherboard and start my computer it beeps at me and won't start, i'm thinking it probably just won't work but does anyone have any ideas that MIGHT make it work? i've downloaded the driver package off the ATI website and it doesnt seem to install anything. maybe possibly just hardware conflict??
After having problems with an onboard graphics chipset I've just installed an ATI Radeon 128Mb 9000 Pro AGP graphics card into my old computer... The problem is that I can't get it to use 1440x900 resolution that my LG L194WT (Ubuntu won't detect it) requires and the highest I can select is 1360x768 and that looks all wrong

I have a Compro Videomate M1F TV tuner card (internal PCI). After installing ubuntu 10.10 I noticed my card was not recognized and tvtime showed no image no sound. After a Google search, I found differente threads and I tried the following: I've created saa1734.conf in directory /etc/modprobe.d (with administrative rights) with these lines:
alias char-major-81 videodev alias char-major-81-0 saa7134 options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1 options saa7134 card=99 tuner=59 secam=dk options tuner secam=d
After that, I rebooted the computer and after starting tvtime, I can see all the tv channels (great) but I have No SOUND and I don't know how to deal with that and couldn't find a solution.I know there is a problem with OSS not being supported anymore or something like that and I am a bit confused.
I have an ATI Radeon 9000 Graphics card that Ubuntu 9.10 doesn't seem to recognize no matter what I do. Knowing that its an older card and that ATI stopped support for it a while ago, I was wondering if anyone knows if I would have better luck on Ubuntu 8.04. I can't get 3d or opengl to work, or install the correct ATI Driver.
I just installed Kubuntu 10.10 , been using gnome Ubuntu for a few years. At the same time I bought a new video card , the VisionTech 5550HD. My Nvidia card seemed to conflict with my HVR1600 tuner , so I thought I would switch to ATI. With the FGRLX driver , there was an error in the xorg.log , so I thought I would just use the Radion Driver. It works , but glxinfo shows "OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer". I assume this means no hardware acceleration. Is this normal. Graphics seem a bit choppy, I would like to get one driver or the other to perform well. By the way, I have a few problems with Kubuntu, but over all I am really liking it
I have Debian WHeezy 7.7 KDE, card Radeon 5000 series. Card has HDMI, video on HDMI working, but sound not working. System see sound device, but if I select this and try to play music then no sound. I tried many things. Below is some lists.
I bought this Radeon 4670 [URL] to improve my video. Although the description on ATI-AMD webpage [URL] specifies that this card can output up to 7.1 audio through HDMI, Sound Controls only shows the stereo and off option. ATI Catalyst does not have any controls for audio. Is there a way to get 5.1 audio enabled? Using 10.04.
I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on HTPC, after having a few RAM and SATA issues everything seems to be working fine, The audio (using HDMI) does not work. Have PC connected using HDMI for video (and I am hoping for audio too, this card is made for this and it has been tested with other OS) however the audio does not work, although in the audio preferences it shows to be using the correct hardware. Testing for sound under sound preferences does not play anything, acts as it it was, but no sound, no error messages either. I went ahead and installed ATIs proprietary drivers in hopes that it would make the audio work, but not luck so far.
If this sounds like a repost, that's because it is. I'm reposting because the problem is still here, nothing has changed. It's been well over a year now since I bought this damn webcam (thinking it would work because I got indications that it was known to be Linux compatible) and I'm still no closer to any sort of solution.
I can start Cheese, press record, and get a perfectly functional video. But despite my webcam having a microphone and despite ALSA detecting it (refer to old topic) I get no sound. Just complete silence. I can't even confirm whether this is a hardware or software problem because I don't know any way to test it because no one even seems to want to look at the problem! I actually want to make some videos now, but I can't because of this problem. Edit: I just tried this with our second, less powerful PC running Ubuntu Karmic. It worked. I got sound out of the webcam. That's confirmation to me that this is a problem with Debian and not with the webcam. So why does it produce sound on another PC using Ubuntu Karmic and GNOME, but not on this PC using Debian testing/unstable with KDE?

I'm driven quite insane on why nothing is either working or teasing me. I DO NOT want to record on Windows. I have a lag problem with fps there, anway. Seems like guvcview is my best option, but I can't get it to detect anything.
A while ago I reinstalled Ubuntu on my PC when I felt that Windows was about to give up. I'm glad I did. A lot of the applications I had on my Mac had equivalents on Linux, I was delighted and I haven't been needing Windows at all.
Up until recently everything was working fine, but now I think Linux is mixing up my Sound Card with my TV Tuner. When I call someone using Skype, it ends up airing white noise, however, if I've watched TV prior to that, it ends up airing the sound from whatever channel I was watching last. If I turn on the video calling function (despite the fact that I haven't got any webcam plugged in) it ends up airing video from that same channel.
It just started doing this randomly, and as I did some experiments, I discovered that it does this with all audio-input applications. (Sound Recorder etc,)
So I installed Pulseaudio device manager, and I discovered that my soundcard isn't listed under output devices.
Can I run this camera: Quote: Bus 001 Device 007: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc as something other than a UVC driven camera? It appears that UVC in 640x480 format is only available at 15 fps. I need to record at fps=30. So I can splice into existing video.
echo "Recording. Ctrl-C or close window to stop" Is there a driver other than 'v4l2' I can use that will give me 30 frames per second?
i have a pinnacle hybrid pro 302e usb tuner. the sound is played with arecord accessing the device and aplay playing it. the video by tvtime.the channel National Geographic comes at 719.25Mhz in my analog cable tv input.I AM GETTING HUGE amount of crackling and squealing noise from this channel. There are a few other channels like star movies at 83.50Mhz which has similar bad sound.i know it might have to do with reception but can you suggest something i can do to pre process the sound before its played so as to reduce the artifacts (video is okay).
I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 which works with Skype, Cheese, Ekiga, and Flash on Ubuntu 9.10 with no problems. (With Ubuntu 8.04, the video worked with all of these but Skype (couldn't test Skype as it was not available) but not the audio, which was one of the reasons I upgraded). It does not work with Flash in Ubuntu 10.04. Flash does not detect the camera though it does detect the microphone (and says it works, haven't tested it yet). It works (video and audio) with Skype and Ekiga. The video works with cheese and I can record my own voice with Sound Recorder off the webcam's mic.
I have looked at the webcam community documentation [URL]..and have visited Adobe's site [URL].. to click on "always allow". But that does not work either. Flash simply does not see the camera. The version of flash on both computers is the same (10,1,53,64).
I have a TV tuner card with its output connected to the CD in of an integrated sound card. Video is OK, and the sound also gets thorough (to the line out) when running xawtv, for example. However, I found no ways yet for recording it.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with ALSA drivers. Pulseaudio was running in the beginning, now it doesn't, but it doesn't seem to make much difference.
capturing with VLC, using plughw:0,0 as the audio capture device. (Result: no sound track at all in the resulting video.)arecord, then aplay.alsamixer. The capture source is set to "CD" (and on the input side it's also "CD" where I can effectively modify the volume for audio going through...), but still no result.
I've got a Leadtek TV2000 Expert tuner and it was connected with my soundcard on motherboard succesfully. Before many years it worked percectly with my early Ubuntu version 7.04 and 8.04 - that used the AUX for soundlevels in the alsamixer. In TVTIME I've get all my TV-channels but without sound...
Always when I run tvtime it sends me:
"mixer: Can't open device /dev/mixer, mixer volume and mute unavailable. mixer: No such mixer channel 'aux', using channel 'line'."
I haven't had one for years, so i am not even really sure what options to look for. So i need to be able to stream media, record media, record cable box, play cable box, listen to local FM radio would be really nice.
Ubuntu version: Karmic Koala (ubuntu 9.10)I've been fiddling arround quite some time with this card. So far i established the following:
1. Card is supported by drivers already available in kernel (v4l, v4l(2)). 2. Card is recognised by Skype as well as by gstreamer. However gstreamer gives me mostly greeen screen when i test it. no propper picture. both found it on video1 (video0 is webcam). 3. I know it is supposed to work well in Linux URL...instructions are for fedora here. 4. there are quite a few tutorial for this card online (even ubuntu), however they are for older version and most of them consist of getting new drivers installed (which are already included with Karmic).
TV Time - blank screen - it is trying to get video from video0 device, which is webcam. i can not set it to use video1 instead as when i click in the menu to change input nothing happens.VLC player - i select use device and set it to V4l or PVR. in both cases the programme itself switches to video0 and turns on my webcam. Nothing else happens. I also installed iv-tv including all necessary libraries and dependancies - as suggested as solution to similar model of card. Didn't change anyhting. it's basically the only thing that is not working yet (most other things i already solved-sort of). I am also interested why the programmes keep switching automaticly to video0 for input when i clearly state to them to use video1?!If this can not be solved can anyone suggest another cheap TV tunner that "just works" in Ubuntu (including remote control)?! I have a big monitor and i think i could use it as TV instead of getting a new TV....
Does anyone know of any way to get this thing to work on Karmic? Just to be able to watch TV, not even to record? I can't seem to get it to recognize it. lsusb just shows:
Code: Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0438:b003 Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. but it doesn't show up in dev/video0 or anything like that, and I don't know of a program which will play it. I don't really have the money to go out and buy another tv tuner, so I really would like to get this one to work, or else I'm going to have to switch to windows
No progress viewing input yet in Linux. I installed MythTV, VLC, and no luck yet with vids or sound.I had video input with Windows Movie Maker, and Media Player Classic (3rd party), but no sound in either.
I never got that card to work In Ubuntu , this is how i`m plugged in from my setop box by coax cable to my tv tuner card . In windows i have no problem using the drivers provided by compro. It would be really cool if i got that card working in Ubuntu
I am trying to get a tv tuner type GT-P5100 to work in Kubuntu but I have no luck. The type of tv tunner is: [URL] I checked [URL] and there is no page for this kind of tuner. I've compiled [URL] and it worked, but in tvtime I get no image. Is there another way to test if my tv tuner is working? I have no entry in /dev/dvb A relevant part of dmesg is:
