Re: Hauppauge HVR-2250 With Mythbuntu
I have two capture cards: an older HVR-1600, on which the mechanical coax connector is broken; hence it is only an analog tuner now - that is on /dev/video0. Then my HVR-2250, on video1/adapter1 and video2/adapter2 (see first image)

Used to work great because TW used to group the different PBS stations on the same freqid.
I've been running this hardware fine for years now (one of the reasons I still have the HVR-1600 around is I bought the 2250 before the analog drivers were finalized). 12.04/0.25 seems to be giving me trouble.
And just to reiterate - I only seem to be having trouble recently with tuner 2.1 (encoder 19). I agree, I should be able to scan once and have all the tuners rely on that map. But when I started to get "B" filesize recordings using tuner 2.1, I started to investigate...
