Ubuntu Multimedia :: WinTV Card Fails To Initialize Tuner

Sep 11, 2010

I'm running 10.04 64-bit with all stable and pre-release upgrades enabled in a Dell 4-core Inspiron with 8 GB of memory. I just bought a Hauppage WinTV-HVR 1600 and it's detected in the boot process and all firmware is loaded, but then it goes bonkers and spews

[ 24.421795] cx18 0000:02:01.0: firmware: requesting v4l-cx23418-dig.fw
[ 24.612289] cx18-0 843: loaded v4l-cx23418-dig.fw firmware (16382 bytes)
[ 24.632510] cx18-0 843: verified load of v4l-cx23418-dig.fw firmware (16382 bytes)


over and over again. All the info on the Hauppage site and LinuxTV is very obsolete. MythTV initializes, but can't find any channels on either the analog or digital streams.

I've downloaded the firmware from http://www.otit.fi/~crope/v4l-dvb/af..._files/4.95.0/ and placed it in /lib/firmware. I'm using Karmic. MythTV and Kaffeine both see the devices. They attempt to tune but I can't get any channels out because they can't tune.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Change Tv Card Tuner?

Feb 20, 2011

I have 2 tv cards that I have successfully configured to work in linux.But this 3rd one I bought recently seems to have a problem. The card is not autodetcted (that's really not the problem) but when I try to load saa7134 with:sudo modprobe saa7134 card=xx tuner=xx, it loads whatever card I indicate but the tuner never changes. This is part of the output of dmesg:

saa7130/34: v4l2 driver version 0.2.15 loaded
saa7134 0000:02:04.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Tv Tuner Card With Vlc?

Sep 1, 2011

I have a sabrent tv tuner card (tv-pcirc). I want to use it in vlc but don't know how to change from the composite source to the tuner source and from there don't know how to change channels (is there a program that generates channels.conf for analog channels?) It would also like to know how to record a certain channel for a certain period via the telnet interface. Another thing I would like to know is how to set up the remote with it, because the audio is very soft and I would like to raise the voume.

My card is using card=42 tuner=43.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Configure INTEX TV Tuner Card

Dec 24, 2010

I have INTEX TV tuner card. i'm trying to configure in ubuntu for tvtime. The card has the saa7130 or saa7134 philipse chipset.

lspci | grep -i saa713



00:0a.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev 01)

after the installation, the card was detected and /dev/video0 was created but dmesg indicated that the card is not among the ones listed as supported and since card did not have EEPROM, the card was not up and running right away.i have edited /etc/modprobe.d/tvcard.conf and added options saa7134 card=3 tuner=14


$sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/tvcard.conf



options saa7134 card=3 tuner=14

Then CTRL+X to exit

still it did not work. tvtime would always say no signal and tvtime-scanner never picked up any channels. then i followed instruction given by rsramkee [URL]. edited saa7134-cards.c and deployed new kernel linux- with changes.i rebooted machine to windows selected one channel in tv tuner software of windows, again rebooted machine to ubuntu (i have dual boot windows XP and ubuntu tvtime able display video of channel that is selected in windows OS (No sound), but not be able to tune any other stations.In mplayer able display video of channel that is selected in windows OS with sound.



mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:chanlist=us-cable:alsa:adevice=hw.0,1:amode=1:audiorate=48000:forceaudio:volume=100:immediatemode=0:norm=PAL

i followed instruction given by http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Saa7134-alsa to set up sound. loading the loopback module with the command:

$ pactl load-module module-loopback

Now tvtime able display video of channel that is selected in windows OS with sound, but not be able to tune any other stations. Not be able to tune any stations.dmesg output:


[ 1320.568603] saa7130/34: v4l2 driver version 0.2.16 loaded

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Configure Generic Remote That Came With A TV Tuner Card

Jan 18, 2010

I've been trying to configure this generic remote that came with a TV tuner card (saa7134) a while ago but I haven't been able to do so. The thing is that the remote works, in fact some buttons are recognized properly... but some are not. I'm not using lirc!, from I have been reading there is support for generic remotes in the 2.6.31 kernel, besides, i can't configure lirc, it doesn't let me load the kernel modules to start up the daemon for the ir. is there a config file for the button mapping of the native remote support in kernel 2.6.31?. Been searching it but couldn't find it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Tv Tuner Card: (Vivanco PCI EASY BG / DK) Not Working

Jul 27, 2010

I have an almost noname tv tuner card: Vivanco PCI EASY BG/DK. Lspci says it is Philips Semiconductors SAA7134/SAA7135HL Video Broadcast Decoder (rev 01). Dmesg detected it as a LifeView FlyVIDEO3000. I tried to configure it making the file at /etc/modprobe.d with the options card=2 tuner=5 (I found that also in dmesg). Still TvTime can't find any channels. I also tried using xawtv and scantv, but only managed to find two channels using ntsc somehow, but I have PAL BG/DK. (the card itself works on Windows, but it took me a while to configure the channels properly)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Tuner Card Not Feeding Sound Through Onboard Sound?

Aug 9, 2011

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.

Hardware :: Video Card Error Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 1850 Kernel 2.6.27-17-generic

Sep 4, 2010

I am trying to install a Hauppauge 1850 video card into Linux Home automation system (LinuxMCE) which is based on Ubuntu Intrepid (I can't upgrade the kernel since this is what the LinuxMCE distribution supports)I am feeding analog signal to the video card, either through a coax analog connection or an RCA analog connection. I cannot see any picture from the card (I verified that the video card is working properly under a Windows Vista OS)I am trying to use the video card using a lightweight application such as tvtime, xawtv. In all applications I am failing to see an image. (For example, tvtime shows the message "No inputs avialble Cannot open capture device /dev/video0". Right clicking on Input configuration / Change video source doesn't give any options)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: WinTV HVR 950 Q Causes Overheating?

Jan 1, 2011

I have configured Kaffeine to work with my Hauppauge WinTV HVR 950Q USB device, and am able to get channels scanned, and can get sound, video from channels, etc. However, its use overheats my laptop to the degree it literally shuts down- turns off! Any suggestions? It took some effort to get this to work in Ubuntu 10.10; however, if it heats up the laptop to this degree what good is it?!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: TV Card Fails To Work After Upgrade From Jaunty

Oct 30, 2010

I upgraded fro Jaunty to Karmic and then to Lucid and my TV card has stopped working. I had been informed that this was a result of the splitting of the linux-firmware into two separate packages, but having installed the linux-firmware-nonfree package the problem persists. The card is a Hauppauge WinTV PCI and although it is properly recognised by commands like lsmod, lspci and in the sound card settings, I can't tune in a single channel. It worked out of the box in Jaunty. Is there anything else that needs to be done to get the nonfree firmware working properly?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: TV Card Setup - Get "No Tuner Is Available For The Selected Card"?

Ubuntu :: Mixing Up TV-Tuner And Sound Card?

Nov 17, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Set Up A Tv Tuner Card And Ruined OS?

Nov 19, 2010

A few nights ago, I was trying to set up a tv tuner card and I somehow ruined my OS. When I log into Ubuntu, all I get is errors and a blank screen. Since it was an older version, I decided to upgrade to the latest version, 10.10. So I figure that I get a live cd, transfer all my wanted files to an external drive, then install the new OS. I got the live cd and when I boot it, I get some picture at the bottom of my screen with some stick figure and what looks like a piece of film, then my monitor resets and says "Out of range" What can I do to fix this problem? I am currently on a Knoppix 2.6 live cd.
