    Hi, I just diffed avermedia's 0.21 drivers and 0.19 drivers with my patch, it looks pretty similar, so I think it doesn't matter which one you will use, u can use 0.21 without any patching or 0.19 with my patch.

    Referring to Changelog:

    0.20-beta => 0.21-beta
    1. Support kernel 2.6.27
    2. Add more verbose description to TV player in user documents.

    I'm not sure why nothing happened after running script, no error msgs? nothing? I think you need dialog pkg in your system for that installation, however it should be installed by default, try post more debug info.

    Regards,

    Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex

    it work on dell mini9 & u8.10

    Solved problem with a828 & dell mini 9 & ubuntu 8.10

    1) when i first try to watch TV with tvtime i can't select source
    Reason : dell mini 9 have a usb web camera registered as /dev/video0 so tvtime can't use this
    Solution : edit /etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml , find /dev/video0 & change it to /dev/video1

    2) no audio
    Reason : audio channel don't fit with default audio settings
    Solution : You must install a828 tools founded in driver archive
    for sound you must type in a terminal window
    sudo /tools folder/audio -s /dev/video2
    where tools folder is replaced with actual tools folder Ex: /opt/A828-tools
    /dev/video2 is analog part audio channel

    radio work too
    in a terminal window "CD"-it to tools folder
    edit radio-player.c and type over 87750 frequency your favorite radio ( for me 94800 ). "make" it and run " sudo radio-player "

    Bonus:
    if you don't have sound after u8.10 fresh install on dell mini9 you must add this line
    options snd-hda-intel model=dell
    at the end of file
    etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

    P.S. Excuse my english , i drink the ink at english class

    Hi I followed the explanation step by step but when I open the tvtime a fews minutes while I was freezing ubuntu, I have ubuntu 8.10 with the 0.21 drivers for the a828 in a laptop dell inspiron 1520. not happening to you?


    I could not see it for the world peace tv ubuntu even install VirtualBox with support for usb installing winxp to see if there could do nothing but run the capture.

    I don't get fm-radio working with gnomeradio but with mplayer, it's so far better than A828-tools

    channel.conf could be used (not tested yet)

    Need libsox-fmt-all & sox packages
    Code:
    mplayer radio://104.3
    
    sox -V -s -w -c 2 -r 48000 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp2 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp
    (/dev/dsp2 or /dev/dsp1, check "arecord -l")

    You don't use the last drivers, take the 0.24, they are officially supported on ubuntu 8.10!
    I had some freeze problems with old drivers but now it's really perfect!

    Hi!

    I have not a828 driver installed on system yet.

    I recently upgraded to jaunty. I've downloaded 0.25beta driver for linux x86 from Aver site. Kernel: 2.6.28-11-generic. While installing in normal mode I got:

    Code:
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/oss-compat, it will be ignored in future release.
    FATAL: Error inserting a828 (/lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/a828.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    and dmesg:

    Just letting you know I'm having the exact same problems on Jaunty with 0.25beta. Will keep looking around for a solution.

    Actually, bikrus, your post is a couple weeks old now. have you managed to install 0.25 on jaunty? Was wondering if I should contact Avermedia for advice.

    Have submitted a support request to avermedia. i'll post when i get a response. in the mean-time i think the "mcount" symbol is unresolved during the insertion of the module into the kernel. it may boil down to having the wrong environment setup when compiling packages. I though having "build-essentials" was enough but maybe the kernel source is needed as well.
