Hi,

I've just installed 8.10, and am trying to get my PVR-500 working. However when selecting watch tv, it has a blank screen, then returns to the main menu after a few seconds.

Hi,

Did you reboot or reload the ivtv drivers before testing again?

Rebooted, I cant check til I get home tonight if its worked this time however. Did your tuners come up as Tuner0 or Tuner1 for each card?

Hi,

Maybe try downloading the latest ivtv bleeding drivers and try again. The ivtv drivers have been abit broken for about a week or so.

Your dmesg looks OK to me.
