Can you post on the thread you created WinTV-HVR-950Q ATSC Mythbuntu 9.10 - Mythtv 0.22 how you were able to get the 950q up and running? I think I am having he same issue.

Thanks.

Sure. In a nutshell, I got it working fine by avoiding the firmware reloading. If you check dmesg, you will see it reloads the firmware a lot.
I also increase the timeouts for the 950q in the mythvuntu setup. I do not have the screen in front of me now, but go to the page where you add the capture card. You will 2 settings. I changed both to 6000 (6 secs).

Also, under /etc/modprobe.d

create a file named
sudo vi xc5000.conf

and add this line

options xc5000 no_poweroff=1 #avoid reload

You can now reboot or unload the xc5000 driver:
sudo modprobe -r xc5000
load:
sudo modprobe xc5000


Now ensure the antenna is connected to the card and scan. It should work.

I have just reinstalled Ubuntu 11.04 and the hvr-950q with mythtv and tvtime. I have put my notes that may be of some help on a new (my first attempt) website.

"Brendan.

Sorry it took do long to get back to you (1 week). Yes I just got the hvr-950q working again yesterday after trying the new Ubuntu 11.10 beta and going back to 11.04 after too much aggravation. Your request prompted me to start a website (my first attempt ever !) www.ubuntubut.com Do me the favor of visiting it where I put my notes of how to install the hvr-950q using MythTV, and a lot more. I have google tracking and I would love to see more visitors.

I got it working YEAH!

Feel free to advise me of how to make it better or how it worked well for you. I hope it helps.
