I have installed mythbuntu 10.04 and installed my tv tuner (saa7130). I can play games on composite but cannot scan for tv cannels. how i can scan for channels because he cannot find a single channel (I think this is weird) ?
I can't get mythtv to play television with my Hauppauge HVR-850 tv card. I was able to view tv in mplayer, so I know that the card is working. The tv signal is broadcast only (no cable). I had to set the card type to DVB DTV capture card (v3.x) to get mythtv-setup to successfully scan. I was able to successfully scan both with a "full scan" and with a channels.conf file that I had generated earlier when tinkering tv in mplayer. Unfortunately, the mythtv frontend failed to play any live tv. It said "Error: MythTV is using all inputs, but there are no active recordings?"
I have a new install of Karmic on my system with a flyvideo 3000 tv card installed. My problem is that it doesn't find any radio channels and the input channel is completely wrong. I don't have any sound on gnomeradio and can't find the config files to change the input channel. The only input option available to me is dig1 - can anyone point me in the right direction?
I have already read the Howto for this tv card and changed the device to radio0 in the setup. I have setup tvtime perfectly with sound channel as well as with a 5.1 surround configuration. I am missing my favourite radio channel. and I want to get rid of my windows installations once and for all! Update: I did a system update and some things have changed: the radio tower graphic on gnomeradio is now green (I assume it is getting a signal) but no sound yet.
I am running the current Mythdora and using the latest drivers and firmware todate, or at least what is listed on the HVR1600 wiki page. I can't lock on to any channels no matter what with this installation. Shouldn't it work after confirmation of drivers loaded and firmware upadated? Below I have outputed basic information. I did try a previous version of mythdora and it was able to find and lock to channels provided by my cable service, but had a bad driver so I updated everything.
Another person posted that he swaped pci slots with this tuner card and it worked. [URL]I think I am missing something. I also would add I have two coaxial inputs. Analog and Digital. I am currently using the TV one. I also did a cat /dev/video0 > ./Desktop/test.mpg and it was static. Does anyone have some ideas? I am all ears!
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:
[url] [url] [url] [url]
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.
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'.
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...
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.
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:
I am setting up a MythTV environment to switch from Windows based MediaPortal (with a high number of disturbing bugs). Yet, I have three difficulties, which I want to discuss with you. They are:
- No audio via HDMI [URL] - Video resolution seems to change during video playback [URL] - Channels cannot be found via DVB-S
As you can see, I have created three posts to keep discussions focused.
Alltogether I have the following setup:
- AMD 5050e CPU - 8 GByte RAM - Biostar TA890GXE - Samsung LE40M86BD, connected via HDMI (and only HDMI) - Mythbuntu 10.10 with proprietary drivers installed - Technisat Skystar HD2 DVB-S card (two times)
Now, here is the problem:
when I try to scan for any available satellite channels to use in Myth, I cannot find any channels. I have invoked "scan -V -l UNIVERSAL -s 1 -a 0 /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E" with the following result:
Code: scanning /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0' initial transponder 12551500 V 22000000 5 >>> tune to: 12551:v:1:22000
i installed Ubuntu 9.10 and it seems i can't have 5.1 sound playing, i've searched a lot but i still haven't found a solution to my problem. tried to change the default channels from 2 to 6, as well as the default-channel-map and much more but still nothing works..
I am trying to configure my Kubuntu desktop since some time to have Mumble working perfectly... It was running in the past, i re-installed some days ago and now i have a huge problem. Basically, capturing the microphone works and it's sent to Mumble, however everybody also hears my desktop sound. I tried adjusting channels in KMix with no luck. Also i don't understand why the capture channels are enabled and must stay at minimum volume...
It doesn't matter if I set the audio to 5.1 or 7.1, the center and LFE are silent. I had the same problem in 9.10 but I could work around by using the alsamixer to set the center to 90%, quit, then set back to 100%. This doesn't work in 10.04 as the controls in the alsamixer can't be changed. Is there any way I can get the center channel working? All I can do at the moment is set the sound properties to 4.0 so that the center channel is automatically redistributed to the other channels, but that isn't a great solution.
I am using ubuntu 10.04.I am trying to get 6 channel audio output.When i open alsamixer it does not show controls for multiple channels. I have seen on articles i read that alsamixer shows controls for multiple channels.how to configure 6 channel audio output on ubuntu 10.04.
KMix 4.6.0 in OpenSUSE 11.4 (x86) doesn't show up channels. It only shows "Internal sound Analog stereo" So I can't set the input/output channels and the headphone channel for my soundcard. The right soundcard drivers are installed (for Creative Sound Blaster Platinum Live Drive). Earlier versions of KMix worked just fine.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and it got really nice interface and is pretty user friendly, but I got an issue directed to sound. I have used Ubuntu 9 last time and had the same problems. So here are my problems: I got Realtek AC'97 ALC655 on-board sound card with 5.1 support and hardware mixing. By reading posts on google and this forums I got an idea it should work OOB but it won't.
The issues: *when I set the sound output to 5.1 + 1 stereo input it makes all the speakers work but act in weirdo way and testing the each speaker confuses me even more, because it's like(test=real sound source):
*the sound quality is crappy, it feels like it is old radio player because it requires some seconds for sound to 'condensate' and play normally with some crackles and other distortions.. And I'd like to also ask what sound system is mainly used in Ubuntu? Is it alsa,pulse or OSS? Since I can't find a way to see it.
i am trying to list radio channels in Tunapie2 and it won't list anything. It will display TV stations, but not radio.
I removed the software and Re-installed it with the same problem. I even removed most files from my .tunapie folder under my home and just left prefs and favorites alone. I did this before re-installing the software.
I have noticed a few threads on getting sound to work properly. I had a problem getting my internal sound card to work on 5.1 channels and investigated the links and information given in the various threads and found that there are slight differences from the references to what I had to do. Firstly, it's a good idea to read through these links first.
I have a tv tuner card thats a couple years old, well since they are phasing out the old analog cable channels with digital ones, my card is not picking them up anymore. Is there any way to get the digital ones without buying a new card?
Get_iplayer worked very well for me under opensuse 11.2. After installing opensuse 11.3 it continued to work very well with the exception of STREAMING live BBC channels. These do not work at all. It seems the "modes" I am and have been using are not recognised. I use gnome and installed codecs using codecs_gnome.ymp for suse 11.3. I have no problem with any of the multimedia applications I use.
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.

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.
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.
