    Angry Help with pchdtv hd-5500

    I'm running Mythbuntu 8.04 (kernel 2.6.24-19 i think). When I have a clean image with clean modules, I get the following for cat /proc/asound/cards (from memory)

    0 M1010LT
    1 Conextant cx88
    2 Conextant cx88_1

    Under this configuration, the analog tuner of the card shows nothing but static on every channel but the sound works and is captured in the backend under /dev/dsp1 and /dev/dsp2.

    When I upgrade the v4l-dvb drivers using the following method

    sudo apt-get install gcc linux-headers-2.6.24-19-generic mercurial
    hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
    cd v4l-dvb
    make && sudo make install && sudo reboot

    the analog portion of the card works but cat /proc/asound/cards shows only

    0 M1010LT

    and the sound is not captured because /dev/dsp1 and /dev/dsp2 does not exist. This is because module cx88_alsa is not loading. When I try and sudo modprobe cx88_alsa I get a FATAL error complaining about version not agreeing. Apparently the update to v4l-dvd does not also update the cx88_alsa module.

    I am not a linux guru and really need some help with this. Does anyone have an idea of how to fix this?

    Thank you,
    JA

    I went back to the clean distribution modules and now my dmesg looks like this

    Re: Help with pchdtv hd-5500

    You need to add this to your /etc/modules/ file.

    Code:
    cx88-dvb


    Then reboot.
    Then, when setting up your card, choose "DVB TV", not the "pchdtv" cards.

    Detail here

    the only difference on that page is that you'll need to use a different text editor than kate.

    P.S. I used to have this card and I'm not sure how well it works in mythbuntu, but I can verify that it works well in an ubuntu+mythtv install

    Re: Help with pchdtv hd-5500

    Thank you for the response. I have that in my file already. I can't use the dvb option in mythtv-setup because I'm trying to watch analog cable so I'm using the v4l driver.

    Re: Help with pchdtv hd-5500

    The way it worked for me was to only add the dvb part. Then, it picks up that it is a hybrid card and adds the appropriate analog inputs. I never had to choose v4l as a card. So, after adding only a dvb card, I had the analog input listed in the input section. Does that make sense? Also, there a place when adding the dvb card to set the sample rate for analog audio. Did you check that link I sent? Also note that I used this procedure in a previous version of mythtv+ubuntu. Long story short is you need to tell it that your card is a dvb card and then it should pick up on the analog tuner automatically. At least, that's what it did for me.

    Re: Help with pchdtv hd-5500

    hmm, I'll try it again this afternoon. Last time I added the dvb driver I looked all over for the analog options and it didn't have any. I'll check the input screen this time. Are you running 8.04?

    Thanks!

    I set it up with the DVB driver but there are no anolog options for it in my version of mythtv. I used cable as my input but when it scans for channels the only option is dvb input. The analog side of the tuner doesn't kick in.

    Re: Help with pchdtv hd-5500

    When I had the card, I used both 7.10 and 8.04. I think where the diffence came in was in the latest version of mythtv. I remember noticing that once I upgraded mythtv, the analog part was gone. That's right around the time that I sold that card and went for a dual analog tuner. Sorry, I should have mentioned that earlier.

    Re: Help with pchdtv hd-5500

    I got the sound working. I had to reinstall mythbuntu completely. There is an update that ruins the sound drivers so I haven't installed any updates.

    The problem now is that the sound is tinny. I've set it to 48000 under the analog driver but not sure what to do next.
