Hello all. I am a newbie to Mythbuntu, but I have had MythTV running under Fedora for over a year. I am changing machines and decided to try Mythbuntu. So far, everything has been great. I got everything installed and even set up the LVM for my recordings. The last piece I need is to channel my X out through my Hauppauge PVR-350. I have been working on this problem for more than 6 hours and I have been following many posts and how-to sites without any luck, including a thread on this forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=568074

So far, I have ivtv and ivtv-fb working. I know my frame buffer and BusId:

Code:
# cat /proc/fb
0 cx23415 TV out
# lspci | grep "Internext"
01:00.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC16 (CX23416) MPEG-2 Encoder (rev 01)
01:01.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC15 MPEG-2 Encoder (rev 01)
I have successfully displayed the test image on the tv:

Code:
# rmmod saa7127
# modprobe saa7127 test_image=1
When I try to pipe /dev/video0 through /dev/video17 to see the video played on my tv:

Code:
# dd if=/dev/video0 of=/dev/video17 bs=64k
I get the video with a big black box in the middle of it. I Google'd that and found something that said I should add

Code:
options ivtv-fb osd_compat=1
to /etc/modprobe.d/aliases. But when I do, I get nothing at all when I use the dd command above (or maybe the black box just got bigger ).

I have also tried setting my xorg.conf to display X through my PVR-350. Here is my xorg.conf:

Code:
# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)

#

# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using

# values from the debconf database.

#

# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.

# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)

#

# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*

# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg

# package.

#

# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated

# again, run the following command:

#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

When I boot with this xorg.conf, it hangs for a minute, then dumps me into run-level 3 and prompts for the root login.

Could somebody please point me in the right direction? My wife is getting a little upset that the myth box has been down for a couple of days.

Michael.
