I've been following Jarod's guide to install MythTV on a Pundit Box w/ a PVR-350
running FC2. I'd prefer to use the PVR's TV-Out vs. the Pundit TV-Out. I've
run into two problems. First, when I run:
# /bin/dmesg |grep ivtv
I get the following output [snipped]:
ivtv: Autodetected WinTV PVR 350 card
ivtv: Found an iTVC15 based chip
saa7115: starting probe for adapter ivtv i2c driver #0 (0x10005)
tuner: chip found at addr 0xc2 i2c-bus ivtv i2c driver #0
ivtv: Encoder revision: 0x02040011
ivtv: Decoder revision: 0x02020023
The output is incomplete. I don't get the expected output from "tuner:" or from
"ivtv:" as illustrated in Jarod's guide.
I continued with the install anyway to try to determine where the problem is.
In testing the TV-Out connection I did the following:
# /sbin/rmmod saa7127
# /sbin/insmod saa7127 enable_output=1 output_select=1 test_image=1
Which resulted in:
insmod: can't read 'saa7127': No such file or directory
I continued the install a few steps further to see if the problem would manifest
again. So, after running:
# /usr/bin/ivtvctl -u 0x3000
# /usr/bin/ivtvctl -p 4
# /usr/bin/ivtvctl -f width=720,height=480
# /usr/bin/ivtvctl -v input=3,output=1
I captured video, and tried to play it with mplayer. Mplayer produced:
No vidix driver name provided, probing available ones
(-v option for details)! vo: X11 running at 1024x768
with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0" => local display) Disabling DPMS
MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: preinit_libvo
I don't know enough about the inner-workings of Myth to know if these are all
related to one another, but I would assume the problem begins with v4l2 not
