I am having trouble installing the cx18 drivers on mythbuntu 8.04. i have a Hauppauge HVR-1600 and want to record tv on my computer. I do not know any terminal commands and very little with mythbuntu. PLEASE HELP ME!

This does require terminal commands but is pretty much copy and paste. Ask any questions. I got it working without any problems.

I'm following this same instructions but Im getting some errors when I do the sudo make unload command.

These are the errors:

Any help will be appreciated since I'm new to all this.

I haven't seen that problem before but it looks like something is trying to use the tuner you already have installed. Do you have a PVR-150 already in use?

Just a guess but maybe if there are other things running in the background you might try shutting them down. Stop all mythbackend processes and give it a try again.

I'm getting the same exact errors. I'm a complete NEWBIE to the UBUNTU world. I'm following the directions posted here:

http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_HVR-1600

here's a screenshot of the errors I'm getting.

NEWBIE@MythtvBE:~/v4l-dvb$

How can I free up all those modules so they can be "unloaded?"

Please, is there anyone out there that has had this problem? and fixed it?

Thanks

I was having the same exact issue with the Hauppauge 1600 and an nvidia 6600GT.

My video card has 2 DVI outs, I switched which one I was using and it installed smooth as butter. Hope that helps you if you are still struggling with this.

I don't know if anyone is still following this thread, but I'm having a slightly different problem. I followed the instructions from the mythtv wiki mentioned above, and everything seemed to go well until the last step:

Anyone know where I can go from here?

When running Mythbuntu you need to disable the mythtv backend. Not disabling the backend will cause errors when installing.
