View Full Version : Problem setting up tv card on 9.10

November 15th, 2009, 10:21 PM
Hi, I just did a fresh install of Mythbuntu 9.10. I configured my tvcard (saa7134) with the right tuner and model in /etc/modprobe.d and it work. I can use it in tvtime or mplayer. Now, I want to use it in mythtv, but I failed until now.

I opened mythbackend setup, added a tvcard, selectionned /dev/video0 and the "television" input. When I change thing in the backend config, I ear the sound in my speaker form the TV during 1/5 second, so it do something, but when I want to watch TV in frontend, I get:

"mythtv is using all inputs but there are no active recordings"

I am kind of new to mythtv, I played with it in the past, but never that much, I never really used it so I am a little lost. What's wrong? I am on 32bit by the way if it can help and I did not edit any settings other than that one.

EDIT: Look like I am affected by this bug https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mythtv/+bug/478048 . It explain why MythTV is not able to scan/see channal without scheduledirect

did you go through ALL the steps in mythtv-setup?


capture card
video source
input connection
channel editor

Sounds from your description that you might not have got all the way through the list.
