Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pinnacle PCTV HD Usb Does Not Work?

Feb 6, 2010

I followed the instructions here:


And my system would not pick up a signal at all or show any channels after scanning. But, just as proof that the system detects the device, my Virtualbox shows this device (it's name and the fact that it is a tv tuner) as one of the available USB devices when it is plugged in. (I am not saying I want to use the usb stick with Virtualbox but only that the computer recognizes it and knows what it is and can even name it correctly).

I have found and never gotten even the slightest response from the usb stick. There is never any picture or channels scanned. This is true whether I am using tvtime or kaffeine or me tv.

Both tvtime and me tv say that only dvb is supported when I try to scan for channels.

So, anyway, using the link that I gave above, I got to the point where I downloaded the drivers from here:


and what I got was a tarball. So I extracted it to my desktop and then changed directories in a terminal to the folder that was on my desktop and then I ran make and then I ran make install. And then I rebooted.

Well... still nothing. Neither Kaffeine nor tvtime nor me tv will detect any channels nor will any picture appear and they all say that I am lacking some kind of dvb support/driver whatever.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get A Usb Pinnacle DVC 101 To Capture Video?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm using natty. is there any way to get a Pinnacle DVC 101 to capture video from composite source on Ubuntu Natty? it seems that when new releases break functionality they often are never fixed.

I'm also unaware of a simple GUI application to use in order to capture the video. It would need start and stop features.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pinnacle 800e Dtv Tuner, /dev/dvb/* Missing?

Oct 4, 2010

I am trying to get a Pinnacle 800e USB ATSC digital TV tuner working in 64-bit Lucid. I followed the 800e wiki for extracting the firmware file that needs to be in /lib/firmware, so dmesg output recognizes it without errors just like shown in the wiki. No idea what modules it should use, but seem to be loaded:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: SOUND From Analog Capture Out Of Sync In Pinnacle Studio 14

Dec 28, 2010

SOUND from analog Capture is out of sync in Pinnacle Studio 14.


This problem can occur during capture from an analog capture card if CPU utilization exceeds 95 percent. To avoid this problem, configure virtual memory to be "System managed" by following these steps:

1. Choose Start -> Control Panel.
2. Open the System control panel.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Click the Advanced tab.
5. In the Virtual memory box, click Change.
6. Select System managed size, and click Set.
7. Click OK.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Or DVI Mythbuntu 10.10

Dec 23, 2010

I have an ECS gf7100pvt-m3 that has the Nvidia MCP73 chipset that supports HDMI out. Unfortunately the MB only has a DVI connector which from what I have read is supposed to cross wire the audio to the correct pins on the HDMI (have a ticket in with ECS to see if like ATI there is a special adapter).

I have tried every thing but only Analog audio is working.

I've tried listed on these links to no avail:


The only error is the at the Aumix isn't touching....I can select HDMI or IEC958 1 etc etc and the audio mixer shows full blue as if it should be working but I can't get VLC or MythTV to output sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get Mythbuntu To Work With Nova-HD-S2

Sep 18, 2010

Installed Mythbuntu today. Spend hour over hour trying to get MythTVto work together with my Hauppauge WinTv-NOVA-HD-S2 card. I've followd so many wikis, reinstalled, tried again ... no success. The card itself works fine. I can use it with MeTV or on Mplayer - no problem. I managed to create a channels.conf. Also no problem. MythTV recognizes the correct card. I have set it to LNB. Now in the backend setup I cannot manage to get the card to scan. And if I try to point it to the channels.conf I am also getting an error message (Failed to open '%1'.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: MythTV Upgrade To 0.23+fixes On Mythbuntu 9.10?

Apr 27, 2010

is there any simple way how to upgrade 0.22+fixes (under Mythbuntu 9.10) to 0.23+fixes? For example any debian package (which I didn't found) to download and simply unpack and install? I'm afraid that if I modify this MythTV, Open Source DVR for 0.23 and use it on 9.10 with 0.22 I'll have problems with directories and so on...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Missing Library For Boxee Beta On Mythbuntu 9.04

Jan 13, 2010

I can install Boxee beta on my mythbuntu 9.04 installation, but when I try to run it, I get the following errors:

/opt/boxee$ ./run-boxee-desktop
/opt/boxee/Boxee: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by /opt/boxee/Boxee)
./run-boxee-desktop: 38: /opt/boxee/give_me_my_mouse_back: not found

I get the same error if I run as root. For now, I don't care so much about the second error, but if anybody has some advice about how to resolve the first error (GLIBCXX...), I've used Linux for years (usually gentoo. I would be surprised if the version of Boxee compiled for Ubuntu 9.04 depended on an installed library without the proper compiler version.

Note that I am using *mythbuntu*, not ubuntu itself, so this may be part of the problem, but it would also surprise me... I'm happy to just install the correct library, but where is it?? I assume I should get it from Ubuntu, or I will break something.

I've also posted to the boxee support forum, but not heard back yet (they are probably busy!)...

Also, I've got Boxee alpha running in a 32 bit chroot environment (on my 64 bit machine), so at least *some* version of Boxee runs, but I wonder if there is some conflict between the two versions.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Screen Resolution Set In Mythbuntu 9.10 - No Xorg.conf

Feb 13, 2010

I'm trying to get my screen resolution set in Mythbuntu 9.10, but there is no xorg.conf on my system! I'm trying to figure out what to do (the xfce tool on mythbuntu doesn't offer the correct resolution, and I'm not even sure what driver I'm using). I've seen other threads saying to run nvidia-setup or somesuch. I assume the appropriate tool in my case would be aticonfig (I saw that elsewhere too) as I'm using an ATI Radeon 9600XT, but that tool says:


aticonfig: No supported adapters detected

Ubuntu Installation :: Mythbuntu 9.04 Cant Login?

I posted this the other day. Just thought that made it would get more attention here. http://newyork.ubuntuforums.org/show....php?t=1672472Quote:I have been running a mythbuntu 8.1 for almost 2 years now. I finilly decided to do a distr.-upgrade. I used the distr.-upgrade tool in X to install the upgrade. On reboot everything was working fine. I then did an update and a reboot. Now I get nothing that I can read. no bios splash, no grub, no x login, just horizotil black lines that keep flashing on screen. I tryed to hit control-alt-f2 and nothing changes. I hit the numlock and the numlock light does not come on. It seems like the system is not even running.

Now the kicker. If I telnet into the machine it is running. I can access mythweb from another computer. It is still recoding and trascoding. It is running.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mythbuntu Install Stalls Out At 85-90%?

Feb 26, 2011

Total noob here. I am trying to install Mythbuntu 10.10 on a computer with and empty hard drive using a CD.The install start fine, I make a couple of selections to tell the installer I want to use the entire harddrive, select the timezone and the install starts without any problems. Unfortunatly after about 30min or so, the installation seem to be stalled out with the progress bar at the 85-90% range. There are no obvious errors in the log.

I have successing installed Ubuntu in the past (although not on this hardware). The PC includes an IDE based DVD-R, 120Gb sata based ssd, 939 dual core processor. 8600GT video card. 2Gb memory. One possibility is that I don't have a TV tuner card installed yet. Was going to do that after I got Ubuntu up and running but perhaps the installer is looking for a tuner card. I realize I am not giving anyone much to work but I am not sure what I could post.

Ubuntu :: Mythbuntu 10.10 - Lost Internet Connectivity?

May 2, 2011

The internet has been working happily on my Mythbuntu machine for many months but stopped working overnight.If I try to do "sudo start networking" I get a "Job failed to start" message.There's also a solid orange light on the ethernet socket.As it's been working for months, I don't think my interfaces config needs updating.Looking at what's been updated recently on the system:

1) I've configured the machine to wake from USB. It was working for a couple of days so I don't believe this is the issue.

2) I set up wake-on-lan with ethtool. Again, this was working (although it did seem to disable wake-on-usb and required a reboot to fix)

3) Update to 11.04 - I said no to this, as 10.10 was working very nicely indeed.

I've disabled wake on lan and rebooted. No joy.

ethtool detects the ethernet controller ok and it's listed in lshw.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mythbuntu 10.10, MythTv, Libvdpau And Nvidia?

Dec 1, 2010

Allrigt, I am a noob, so take it easy with me I installed mythbuntu 10.10 a couple of days ago. I had problem with my Nvidia card (as everyone else it seems). I have a Geforce3 Ti500 GPU card (and I am running on a 32-bit version). First I had to enable all the (almost all) flags in the installation gui by pressing F6 (other options) (using live CD).

Then when the installation was made, it all froze at the startup. I managed to get a prompt by holding ESC at startup (I never got it to work with CTRL+ALT+F1, it was perhaps me or perhaps that won't work before the system is restarted and the installation complete?). Allright, to be able to startup, I downloaded new drivers (well, old ones it seems), NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.19-pkg1.run

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting Error Creating Dual Boot Using Mythbuntu 9.10 Amd 64 CD / Fix It?

Feb 23, 2010

I am trying to create a dual boot setup with Windows XP. Everything goes smoothly untill the final reboot. I get a text screen giving me the two options of booting into Windows XP or Mythbuntu. When I select Mythbuntu I get a second text screen with a rectangle only showing Windows XP as an option -nothing else. Hitting enter causes error message.
If I selext the Windows XP option on the first screen system boots into windows without a problem.
I suspect this should be fairly easy to fix - but being a complete noob to Linux I am lost as to what to do to correct this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Driver Lucid Mythbuntu Failure ?

Jun 30, 2010

Had mythbuntu/xbmc running for 4 months with vdpau and all the same hardware. I killed it with an update and thought it'd all be easier To build it the 2nd time -- wrong! Fresh install of mythbuntu lucid off cd, Asus p5g43t-m pro, nvidia gforce 9500 gt

What I tried so far...Different drivers with the hardware app thingee. Multiple times -- Purge nvidia, purge nouveau, blacklist list of other video stuff with extra line after, stop gnome, manual install various drivers - 195.xxxxx or Synaptic install various drivers. Tried updates, adding avenard and daily build repos. Everything in combinations. Outcome remains consistant. Lo res error start, can't load nvidia driver, selected but not in use, xorg.conf needs editing.

I'm getting the same error messages as the common nvidia help posts describe but the solutions aren't working for me.

4 days of this, 3 installs plus a shot at Mint, and no progress. I'm pretty frustrated. I'd consider returning to karmic if I didn't think the updates would pork the nvidia driver all over again.

Last install of 9.10 there was a required edit of vmalloc=256M and a shut off of cx18. That's been fixed in lucid? What else ccould it be?

Ubuntu Networking :: Set A Static IP Address On A Server (to Be Used With Mythtv) And Is Running Mythbuntu 10.04

Aug 12, 2010

Am attempting to set a static IP address on a server (to be used with Mythtv) and is running mythbuntu 10.04 (apologies if this is the wrong place to post this). I can set a static IP address that is in the range of 192.168.1.x on other machines on the network but when I try with the server it is not able to connect to the network. When using the DHCP rather than manually assigning the address it is assigned an address with the 10.0.0.x range. Why is it doing this I have never have this problem on other ubuntu boxes (and this one prior to a format of the OS).

The router/gateway is I did have a DHCP server on the mythbox before formatting it and I was able to assign a static 192.168 address and retain internet connectivity. But I have re-enabled the DHCP server on my router since formatting the box.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: CD ROM Works But Sometimes Does Not

May 10, 2011

Im running the upgrade to natty 64. My cd rom drive works when it wants to. when i put the disk in the system wont recognize it. so i just leave the disk in when i go to work. when i turn the comp back on 8-16 hrs later it will show up as ready to burn. i flashed back to windows and the drive wouldn't work at all, but on 10.04 it worked all the time. do you think that the drive is just being temperamental and is on its way out? or a kernel issue? If I shut the comp off and turn it right back on with the medium left in it, it will recognize the disk. this will not work on a restart.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Make A DVD That Works?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm trying to make a DVD that'll play on my stand alone DVD player. I import and edit the video using Kino and then export in an MPEG format. Fool that I am....I then waste hours and hours of time trying to create a DVD using Qdvdauthor. Then I click Create DVD and what does it do? It creates a bunch of useless files that when burned into a DVD produce a piece of junk.

Does anyone know exactly how to make a working video DVD on Ubuntu? unless you know exactly how to solve this problem don't send a bunch of links. I'm tired of reading the same regurgatated "how tos" that don't work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Works But Does Not Record?

Jan 31, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on an Asus F3JC laptop with an integrated webcam and microphone. The webcam is a

user@ubuntu:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05e1:0501 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd DC-1125 WebCam

and it works. If i tap on the microphone or if I blow on it, I hear noises but after I record something with gnome-sound-recorder I don't hear any sound! The same with Skype, for example.

On Xp (other hd partition) it works.

The audio device on the laptop is a

user@ubuntu:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC660 Analog [ALC660 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1


If I open the "sound preferences tool" the device for sound input is "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" and even if I tune the volume of the microphone I don't see any movement in the input level bar. I've also checked alsamixer and the digital volum in the capture interface is set at the maximum.
