    Hauppauge 2250 / Not detected by 18.04 [was working in 12.04]

    OK, I'm upgrading my (admittedly very) old HTPC from Ubuntu 12.04 to Ubuntu 18.04, mostly because Plex Server could not update itself and my iOS apps needed the newer Plex Server. Years ago (2012) I installed a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250, added some firmware files to Ubuntu and it worked pretty much effortlessly.

    With a completely fresh install 18.04, I have not been able to get the OS to recognize the card. I have:
    1. Installed packages from the Hauppauge PPA (http://www.hauppauge.com/pages/suppo...t_hvr2250.html)
    2. Manually installed firmware according to https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.p...WinTV-HVR-2250 (NOTE: this is exactly what I did for 12.04), also slightly more involved instructions at https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.p...WinTV-HVR-2200

    First, there's some conflicting/confusing information out there. This page: https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.p...WinTV-HVR-2255, indicates that the drivers are in kernels no later than version 4.2, so my kernel should be fine, right?

    Second, my best guess is that the firmware modules are not being loaded. I put the five .fw files available from http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/ in /lib/firmware, rebooted, and nothing. When I check dmesg or modprobe following reboots, there is no indication that any attempt was made to load the firmware, not even an error. I created a /lib/firmware/`uname -a` directory, moved the .fw files there, still nothing. lspci does not list the Hauppauge card.

    Unless my approach is entirely wrong, it seems to me that the firmware is not being loaded by the kernel. How can I attempt to force the kernel to load the firmware or try to debug why it is not loading?

    Current Situation:
    Very vanilla installation of Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop, "Normal Installation"
    Current kernel: 4.15.0-33
    Motherboard: BIOSTAR TH61 ITX
    CPU: Dual core Intel G620
    Capture Card: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250
    (I know my hardware is old, but this is just a DVR box, it doesn't need to be anything special. Plus, it was working fine in 12.04)

    I've got the same problem. Upgraded from 17.04 to 18.04 and no longer can get Tvheadend to find my Hauppauge 2255 card. I also have a USB ATSC Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD. Using the Hauppauge PPA. The WinTV-DualHD works fine. The 2255 not recognized. LSPCI -vnn shows the 2255 exactly like dwsideri post.

    I ultimately found a solution that was hidden deep in the details of other instructions.

    First, copy the firmware from steventoth.net to /lib/firmware

    Second, create a file /etc/modprobe.d/options with this in the first line:

    options saa7164 card=8

    Reboot, then it worked for me. I didn't need the Hauppage PPA at all. Use "ls /dev/dvb" and you should see "adapter0", "adapter1", etc., if the firmware loaded correctly. You can test it with Kaffeine before getting into the MythTV settings.

    I installed the FW under the link "Installing this firmware is all that is needed." and the card showed up in my Myth.

    Now I need to figure out the rest!
