[mythtv-users] Pvr-350 problem, coming to you as last resort, sort of.

1 - I have tried the card on a WinXP box and it works fine.
2 - From everyone's postings and general scuttle butt I would not expect
this to cause so many problems either. I think it's the tveeprom module too
and will continue to investigate.

Thank you,

Eric Bell

Do you have access to a Windows machine you can test the card in? I'd try
and make sure the card itself works OK. I wouldn't expect a PVR-350 card to
cause so many problems.

The two issues that could be causing you problems that I can think of are i)
incorrectly installed firmware (it seems to be loading OK from the log
output though) and using a bad/incorrect tveeprom module. This is detailed
on the ivtvdriver.org site http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/Howto.
