Hi all,
Firstly thanks for the replies from a week or so ago, I have now got my
kernel updated such that it now recognises my (Connexant-based) new
Nova-T PCI card. Just as some outline, it's FC3 up to the latest kernel
via apt, then souce rebuilt with the latest linuxtv snapshot from
bytesex.org. Recompiled with the appropriate module in the kernel. The
giveaway is in dmesg, ofcourse, which now pumps out :-
cx2388x v4l2 driver version 0.0.4 loaded
cx2388x: snapshot date 2004-10-05
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:0a.0[A] -> GSI 10 (level, low) -> IRQ 10
cx88[0]: subsystem: 0070:9002, board: Hauppauge Nova-T DVB-T
cx88[0]: hauppauge eeprom: model=90002, tuner=Thomson DTT 7592 (76)
cx88[0]/0: found at 0000:00:0a.0, rev: 5, irq: 10, latency: 32, mmio:
tuner: Ignoring new-style parameters in presence of obsolete ones
cx88[0]/0: registered device video0 [v4l2]
cx88[0]/0: registered device vbi0
cx88[0]/0: cx88: tvaudio thread started
cx88[0]/0: AUD_STATUS: 0x36 [mono/pilot c1] ctl=BTSC_FORCE_MONO
I'm guessing that's all "okay"? It never used to...
So we do the old modprobe for the cx88xx module, nothing whinges or
complains (I've also modprobed for all the other stuff people bleet on
about - cx8800, cx88-blackbird). There's also ivtv/bttv/saaxxxx in there
too, but that's for the PVR350 card I've got in there - no issues with
this, I've got this working 100%.
But there's NO /dev/dvb folder or subfolders/devices whatsoever. Now a
quick scoure of Google shows tonnes of people having this problem, so I
ran the MAKEDEV-DVB.sh script which duly creates them. But running the
dvb-util package's dvbscan, it can't open /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
(or any of the other 3 if I try the command-line param to force it to
other devices).
I must be missing something really obvious, right?
Cheers peeps,
Daniel Howell
