Hi There,

I am having trouble getting my tv tuners to work in mythtv. Running 0.22 under mythbuntu 9.10

I have 2 tuners:
1: AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid+FM PCI (A16D)
Which is supported since kernel 2.6.27
for more info see (if the link comes up with "There is currently no text in this page." click "the search for this page title" link and the first result is it):

2: Leadtek Winfast DTV Dongle Gold:
Which is currently not supported in the kernel can be installed following these instructions:
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Leadtek_Winfast_DTV_Dongle_Gold

I dont think I installed the Leadtek Winfast DTV Dongle Gold correctly as I noticed after the install that the note mentioned that:
"* If you're using Ubuntu (or MythBuntu) Karmic Koala, you'll need the full kernel source tree, not just the headers."

My first question is how do I get the full kernel source tree to install following the procedure.

My second question is how do I do a scan in mythtv when I go into the backend setup I an add the tuners however I am unable to do a channel scan as the option is there in the channel editor but I can not select it.

If it helps I am in Brisbane Australia

Please help

Cheers

Phil
