View Full Version : HVR-1600 driver loading problem

October 10th, 2008, 01:38 AM
When the machine first comes up, the card comes up as /dev/video0. The backend will not be able to open the device, though. (This is apparent in the mythbackend log also) If I go into the Hardware Drivers GUI and disable and re-enable the driver, the card will come up as /dev/video1 and the backend has no problems. I've scoured every forum I can find and apparently I'm the only person with this problem. Please help.

Try this thread. I followed that and got the analog to work.

Thanks, but that pretty much installed the driver and firmware that I already had.

UPDATE: I reinstalled driver/fw using first method I tried from mythtv wiki and it just works now.
