    Question Why dvb card works smoothly in Windows and not in Ubuntu 12.04?

    Hi!

    I have an Asus My Cinema-U3000Hybrid card.

    It works flawlessly in windows...

    In Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64 I get pixelizations, sound lags and other distortions.

    Can anyone lend a hand?

    Regards.

    Re: Why dvb card works smoothly in Windows and not in Ubuntu 12.04?

    Could either be that the card is not fully supported. Two you are missing a driver. Possibly the third could be a error on boot up. Try this out
    Code:
    dmesg | less
    Or look for the error log files to see if it booted correctly.(imo those could be it I maybe be wrong though)

    Hi,

    I've followed both links but the issue still remains.


    @Whovian: I also have tried those commands.

    After the device is connected, I get this:

    Code:

    Any ideas if this has anything to do with my issues and if that's true, on how to solve them?



    Finally, thank you all for the interest shown so far!

    Re: Why dvb card works smoothly in Windows and not in Ubuntu 12.04?

    Long shot..

    The errors you have could be IR polling or just unimportant..
    If you can live without IR remote (or use another) .. make a file called /etc/modprobe.d/dvb.conf.
    stick this in the file:
    options dvb_usb disable_rc_polling=1

    Ubuntu requires this to get the new modules options into boot image:
    sudo update-initramfs -u

    But are you sure there is any problem with the tuner card/stick ?

    You can use "cat" to copy a stream (e.g. /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0) to a file (after tuning)..then try play the file with ffplay or VLC or mplayer.

    Hello, and thanks.

    I guess there's no problem with the tuner. It works with windows ( ).

    I am going to try your recommendations on a fresh install of ubuntu 12.04 x86_64 then I'll come back to report.

    Thanks again.

    Question Re: Why dvb card works smoothly in Windows and not in Ubuntu 12.04?

    Hello, so I did a fresh install and followed ByciclerBoy hint.

    a while after logging into the system I plug the device in, and issue dmesg on the command line,

    here's what I get:

    Code:

    If I do dmesg then I get the same

    Code:
    "dib0700: stk7700ph_xc3028_callback: unknown command 2, arg 0"
    errors again.



    How can I be sure the rc options were indeed loaded?


    Thanks.

    Re: Why dvb card works smoothly in Windows and not in Ubuntu 12.04?

    Rem: it was a long shot..
    The actual module options will be viewable in the /proc filesystem (somewhere)..

    To see the possible options (not actual in use):
    modinfo dvb-usb

    With the card tuned in one terminal with tzap..open another terminal & run
    ffplay -f v4l2 -i /dev/video0
    or
    cat /dev/video0 > sample.mpg
    and then play file with VLC or mplayer.

    Question Re: Why dvb card works smoothly in Windows and not in Ubuntu 12.04?

    Hello BicyclerBoy,

    Thanks again for all the help you have been giving up until now.

    I really appreciate it.


    When you suggested to use tzap to tune in i did the following:

    first:

    Code:
    tzap -r  "TVI"
    and on another terminal I tried several things:

    Code:
    cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > testvideo.mpg
    and also

    Code:
    mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0

    I could see image (but no sound...

    Besides, the image continues with issues...


    I used the above devices because there does not seem to be any /dev/video0 on the system...

    Regards
