HVR-2250 - tuner unavailable
Having trouble with the analog part of a new HVR-2250 card. Using Gentoo
and kernel 3.2.1 and it looks like the card is loading ok (below). I
downloaded the firmware and put it in /lib/firmware, not sure if that is
still needed. There are /dev/video0 and /dev/video1 entries and I added it
using the MPEG-2 in mythtv-setup, but the card shows up on myth as
"unavailable" Not sure what I need to look for at this point. I have read
what I can find, does anyone have any tips on getting this to work?

You need to setup it as dvb. Can you post output of "ls /dev/dvb/*" Did
you setup source ?

Not when you are setting up the analog part of the card you don't...

Guess I should have specified that I am trying to get the analog section of
the card to work, trying to use the s-video input. I have setup a source
in mythtv-setup.

Methinks this can happen if something (MythTV?) is using DVB part of
the card same time.

minor progress on this. If I use /dev/video1 and s-video I get a
picture,but no sound. Am using the 3.5 jack and verified it works with
other devices, but it does not work when recording with myth. If I cat
/dev/video1 > /tmp/test.mpg the recording is created, but does not have any
sound. I have looked high and low for a solution and post #99 does not
help any on this. Anyone have experience with this problem or a hint on
what I should be looking into?

Well, I finally figured it out. I was trying to use the adapter card
s-video with the 3.5 jack. I could never get it to work. I finally found
a pig tail s-video / audio adapter in the HVR-2250 box and found that if I
used that I could get video and audio. So basically, don't use the adapter
card. Still having a problem with having to restart myth several time to
get the card to be usable. I will post back if I figure that out.

I had a very hard time getting that card to work,but since I finally
figured it out (with help) It runs great... Just a thought,are you sure
the card isn't switching nodes? Mine does on occasion...I tried to write
an udev rule to put the card on a static node,but everything I tried
doesn't seem to create the sym-link....

when you say your card is switching nodes how are you determining which
node udev is using? What does your udev rule look like?

sorry, I wasn't clear.. I wasn't able to get an successful udev
rule..Every thing I tried didn't create a rule... Here is though my rule....

KERNEL=="video*", ATTR{name}=="saa7164[0] mpeg (Hauppauge WinT",
ATTRS{vendor}=="0x1131", KERNELS=="0000:03:00.*", SYMLINK+="anolog1"


KERNEL=="video*", ATTR{name}=="saa7164[0] mpeg (Hauppauge WinT",
ATTRS{vendor}=="0x1131", KERNELS=="0000:03:00.*", SYMLINK+="anolog2"


KERNEL=="video*", ATTR{name}=="Hauppauge HD PVR",
ATTRS{vendor}=="0x8086", SYMLINK+="hdpvr"


I am aware I have this problem,so I check to see if the are on the
proper node after a re-boot..


If you do get a working udev rule,please let me know...
