    Kworld 115 setup and remote

    Setting up my mythubuntu box now. I am am pretty much a linux noob with only using suse the past few months off and on.

    What I need is to get my capture card installed (Kworld ATSC 115) and its remote.

    My question is can anyone explain how to install the capture card and how to install the remote. Mythbunutu comes with lirc installed but I am not sure if my remote is on the list, if it is can you tell me which one.

    Also I have the mythtv wiki up for the atsc 110 but I have no clue what it is saying.
    Could anyone simplify the instructions for how to do it just on mythbuntu.

    Thanks

    Re: Kworld 115 setup and remote

    The real problem is the first part.

    # cd /[kernel source directory]/Documentation/dvb/
    # perl get_dvb_firmware nxt2004

    Can anyone tell me how to find out or tell me the path of [kernel source directory]

    Thanks.

    For me (and this was in edgy) I downloaded this from the V4L site, and then cd' into the unzipped directory directory structure of the download and ran it from there. It didn't come on my Edgy system that I know of... IIRC. I don't know if it does or doesn't in Gutsy. It's been over a year... But basically all you need to do is download that firmware file and put it in /lib/firmware.

    You can see if the file or perl script exist on your system by doing:

    Code:
    slocate get_dvb_firmware
    slocate nxt2004
    This will give you the path to them if they are on your system in a place that it is indexed.
    If you can't find them then you probably need to download them.

    You can also download this script from here:

    I haven't got the remote and analog to work yet. See this thread for details:
