I've been running mythtv 0.15 with pvr-350 for a awhile, but decided to
upgrade to 0.20 and an HD tuner at the same time.
My system is now setup as follows:
mythtv 0.20, FC-6 (following Jarods Howto), its work great with the pvr-350.
but so far I have been unable to get the 5500 card to work.
I'm trying to use my 5500 to tune to OTA -ATSC channels
Using dvbscan, I see it is finding some HD channels, as I am getting a
channels file with the following:
(Anyone know how to read that??? I know have ATSC channels:
4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2, 7.1, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.5, 13.1, 16.1, 22.1, 22.2 via
my ATSC tuner on my TV)
The MythTV scan does not appear to find anything, during the setup I
installed the card as DVB DTV capture card (v3.x)
Xine Testing: (I have a channels.atsc file in my .xine directory
generated from: dtvscan -fx)
Typing: xine dvb://
It complains about the dvb:// mrl saying there is no plugin support for it.
Under message it shows: found input plugin for dvb
Typing: xine -C 4.1 dvb://
just spits out the help info (as if it doesnt like the -C arg)
(I did a yum install of both xine and xine-hd)
note: I do not see an option for HD skin..
I have since grabbed the source on the CD included with the card, and
xine -version shows:
a free video player v0.99.4.
lsmod |grep dvb ..shows..

Any tips on what I have messed up?
