Hello everyone, I've read through most of the post related to this card but I still can't make it work. I really need help.
I used to run Mythdora for years but the machine died so I built a new one.
Here are the specs,
MSI 760GM-P23 (FX) AMD Series Motherboard
AMD ADX640WFK42GM Athlon II X4 640 Quad Core
Corsair CMX4GX3M1A1333C9 XMS3 4GB DDR3 RAM
Hauppauge 1213 WinTV-HVR2250 PCIe Dual TV Tuner
I just ran the updates yesterday and I'm now at .25, I shouldn't have but I ran out of ideas.
I just need the two analog channels to work but I always get a blue screen on the second encoder.
I have the NXP7164-2010-03-10.1.fw copied in /lib/firmware and when I do
In many threads I read that some people use the IVTV Encoder but I don't have that choice, the only one that works for me is the MPG2 Encoder
dmesg | grep saa I get the following

Notice that it's missing dva but I realise I don't really need it for analaog but the Unknown Hauppauge model #0 really bugs me.
I also tried
sudo cp NXP7164-2010-03-10.1.fw /lib/firmware
hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/~stoth/saa7164-v4l
cd saa7164-v4l make CONFIG_DVB_FIREDTV:=n
sudo make install
But the make CONFIG_DVB_FIREDTV:=n ends in error like many in other threads.
Can someone explain what this does? If I have the firmware and the drivers are supposedly included in .24 and .25 why do we need to do this?
Lastly, any hope of having the remote working on this card or do we forget about it?
