    There are work arounds and fixes. The "easiest" approach is to use 10.04 and upgrade it to 11.04 and things work fine. There is also instructions using a modified driver from one of the other posters here (sorry I forgot their name and I'm being lazy).
    Okay. So bypassing the STB yields results.

    Is there any way to make this work with the STB? Analog drivers through the STB?

    If you wanna use a STB get a HD PVR.

    Anyway, I just built my new backend and the digital tuner section of the HVR-2250 worked fine after I installed the firmware and added myself to the video group. I now have OTA HD going into the backend, over the LAN to the frontend and playing on the TV.

    Though I was interested to see that the Ion frontend can't play the HD video with VDPAU without dropping frames at the TV's 1366x768 native resolution and I had to switch it to 1280x720. I'm guessing Nvidia have some optimisations for HD resolutions that don't work in the general case.

    Re: Hauppauge HVR-2250 With Mythbuntu (11.04!)

    The post from eternicode in #388 worked great for me, I have essentially the exact same build. I did run the FiredTV command, it returned a few errors, however it still works.

    Thanks for the great posts Low Sky and eternicode!

    Hello Mythbuntu users.

    It pains me to tell you all but I have moved on to Arch Linux. I might be back if Arch doesn't annoy me. And oh it has! In the mean time it delights me to tell you that the 3.0 Kernel shipped with Arch seems to work pretty well with the HVR-2250. My only issue was learning my way around Modules.

    I want to give credit to Sketchy's post: #420 I'm pretty sure this works

    No one should need to upload any kernel drivers using 11.04+, only the firmware is needed.

    I created a link on my server to host all of the firmware versions made a while back and will host as long as possible. I may move them to a public dropbox location later. I will update if needed.


    Grab the firmware.
    Code:
    wget -c http://www.robotbeard.com/hvr-2250/HVR-2250_firmware.zip
    Unzip the files
    Code:
    unzip HVR-2250_firmware.zip
    copy the files to the /lib/firmware folder
    Code:
    sudo cp *fw /lib/firmware
    Now check if the card can be located and what value the system has given it
    Code:
    dmesg | grep saa7164
    on the 3rd or 4th line you should see what you are looking for it will look like this
    Code:
    [card=8,autodetected]
    What this says is my HVR-2250 was detected at card 8, you may (probably will) get a diferent number.

    Now we need to enter this card number into modprobe.d/options.conf file (I like to use gedit)
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf
    place this line of code in the file
    Code:
    options saa7164 card=x
    *x = your card's number*

    Reboot and check mythtv backend to see if it is listed correctly.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    Re: Hauppauge HVR-2250 With Mythbuntu

    It looks like you have a newer hardware revision which is not recognized by the current stable version. You will need to download and build the latest dev version of the driver.

    You can see here that Steve added the new revision in to the dev build awhile back.
    http://kernellabs.com/hg/~stoth/saa7164-dev/rev/a73b1f6615a9

    Follow lowsky's instructions but instead of downloading the stable build, you will need the dev build.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=212

    Just replace this line:
    with this line:
    AND

    this line:
    Code:
    cd saa7164-stable
    with this line:
    Code:
    cd saa7164-dev
    Good Luck.

    Thanks for the help, , I used the -dev firmware and then ran the "make" command

    What is vanilla kernel? This is a virgin install of 11.04 (32 bit)
    Being a newb to linux Im a little hesitant, do I proceed with sudo make install?

    EDIT: A little snooping leads me to think that I need to install

    • kernel-source or kernel-headers
    • (OpenSuSE and fedora only) kernel-devel
    • make
    • gcc
    • git
    • patch
    • patchutils
    • libproc-processtable-perl

    This is from - http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.ph...Device_Drivers

    Linux TV for the HVR-2200 suggests ------------(http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Ha...WinTV-HVR-2200)
    apt-get install get patchutils lsdiff libproc-processtable-perl build-essential
    Unfortunately this falls over, even when using sudo
    adrian@mediabox:~$ sudo apt-get install get patchutils lsdiff libproc-processtable-perl build-essential
    [sudo] password for adrian:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package get
    E: Unable to locate package lsdiff
    adrian@mediabox:~$

    *Rubs chin thoughtfully*

    What else?

    Try installing the kernel source

    Thanks again, I tried that and the suggestions from Linux TV, still nothing.

    Little bit lost now.
