I have finally been able to successfully get a picture on my hd3k
card! But, I am far from sitting back on the couch flipping the
I am having some success using the cx88-atsc module. But, not really.
I can use:
getatsc /dev/dvb 13.1 > file.mpg
And play it with mplayer. I can also:
And watch something. However, the first channel I tune to using any
tool, that is the only channel I get until I rmmod cx88-atsc, and them
modprobe cx88-atsc. Then I can tune another channel.
I get a great signal, above 90% on nearly everything, according to
dtvsignal. Here's a snippet:
masterc root # dtvsignal /dev/dtv 13.1
main: argc 3 argv /dev/dtv
freq*16 = 3380
main: ioctl 1 rtn 0
main: ioctl 2 rtn 0
dtvsignal ver 0.2 - by Jack Kelliher (c) 2002
channel = 13 freq*16 = 3380
Signal: | . : . | .____:____.____|
Signal: 096 $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
I have yet to get anything working regarding dvb really. I have
followed a few how-to's that seem to get me going, but I never
actually get any picture.
I've got dvb-apps from CVS yesterday, and am running a 2.6.12-mm1
kernel with the necessary modules available. Here's a snippet of my
masterc root # lsmod | grep cx
cx88_atsc 14788 0
cx22702 6148 0
dvb_pll 6020 2 or51132,cx22702
cx8802 9412 1 cx88_atsc
cx8800 27916 0

video_buf 18180 6
ir_common 7364 1 cx88xx
tveeprom 11216 2 bttv,cx88xx
i2c_core 17920 11
v4l1_compat 14084 2 cx88_atsc,cx8800
v4l2_common 5184 3 cx88_atsc,bttv,cx8800
btcx_risc 4360 4 bttv,cx8802,cx8800,cx88xx
videodev 7680 4 cx88_atsc,bttv,cx8800,cx88xx
The only package I installed from the pchdtv site was the 'extras'
package for the 2.6.12 kernels.
So, to recap:
with the atsc module I get a video, but no audio and I can't switch
channels. With the dvb module, I appear to get everything configured
correctly, but get nothing.
Any suggestions are very welcome, and I'm sure you need some more info
that I didn't include, so please ask so I can include it.
