I sent the message for help (see below) sometime last week, but I have
no replies. Since I sent this, I have tried a number of configurations,
but none have yet solved the problem. I have tried...
- changing kernels (2.6.9-r3, 2.6.9-ck3)
- changing ivtv (many 0.2 series, now using 0.3.1g)
- changing PVR-250 firmaware modules (now back to using the
- inserted xorg to replace xfree
- updated Nvidia drivers (to 6629)
yet, the issue still remains. If anyone can even hint at what I might
try next, I would really appreciate it.
I am using the CVS as of 11/07, and have noticed a problem. I can start
the myth back and front ends without problems, and I can navigate menus,
update settings, etc., practically without an issue. I can *watch TV*
successfully, but, after exit from that mode, I cannot return to again
*watch TV*. IF I attempt to do so, I get one of two results…a "frozen"
display, or an outright segfault of the frontend. I think I have seen
similar (if not identical) issues discussed here before, but I thought
that any detail I might be able to offer may help to solve the problem.
Anybody else still seeing this?
First, my system:
Kernel: 2.6.8 (gentoo)
IVTV: ckennedy 0.3 something …very recent
Nvidia on board (GEForce 4 MX 440 equivalent) graphics, 6111 drivers
Using XvMC, Bob
PVR-250 capturing S-video input from satellite receiver
I am fairly certain that the issue has arisen over the last 30 days, as
I did not experience it before. It COULD have been there before and
escaped my notice due to usage patterns, but I doubt it. I have tried a
variety of revisions of the ivtv software, and have used at least 4 sets
of myth CVS. I am willing to try other combinations, but I really don't
know where to continue…any advice or hints would be most appreciated.
