Video 0 & video1 = the same thing...its only 1 card...im on 3.5.i
drivers and only get 1 now so I think the drivers are evolving more and
video0 doesn't exist until the ivtv driver is loaded.
I think what you mean is how can I load ivtv drive on boot...which is
add it to /etc/modules file
Static on the tuner means you havent set up the channels......im at a
similar point but im working on mine still so I cant advise yet

Subject: [mythtv-users] Static on PVR-150 running FC3
I've followed Jarod's guide pretty much word-for-word for setting up
Myth on FC3 and have run into a few issues. I'm using 2 PVR-150s and a
GeForce FX 5200.
First, all I get is static when I set up Myth and enter Watch TV mode.
I've set up my 150s in Myth's Capture Devices section as the 250/350
setting, which I'm presuming is correct. The system is recognizing at
least 2 cards (/dev/video0 and /video1), and all I get is static on the
screen, along with the on-screen programming information. I've even
tried the following settings, and now I get static for one second, and
then Myth locks up and gives me an error. Maybe this is because I'm
still using the monitor instead of the TV right now...
# /usr/bin/ivtvctl -u 0x3000
# /usr/bin/ivtvctl -p 4 (I've tried 0 and 1 also) # /usr/bin/ivtvctl -f
Any ideas from anyone that might know my problem or something good to
try would be greatly appreciated, especially since I'm sure someone else
out there is running 150s successfully =).
Finally, on the annoying side, the /dev/video0 and /dev/video1 devices
aren't showing up in the system until I run the "/sbin/modprobe ivtv"
command as root. Where can I put this command so it will run as root on
Again, any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
