I am stuck right now. I thought it was my upgraded install of F8 but it
does it with a virgin install. In fact it does it when booting from the
Live CD. Here is the issue.
I recently got a HD STB and am trying to use it with my myth system.
When I plug in the cable and boot the system the system will hard lock
part way thru the boot process. If I allow the system to boot and
hotplug the cable the drive lite will flash for a minute or so and then
the system will hard lock. Its not the STB as I test loaded a copy of
ubuntu 7.10 and it works fine. Only thing is I cannot stand ubuntu and
it gives me much greif whenever I want to do some work as root. I also
have not been able to get Xorg to play nice with my HD tv under ubuntu.
I am sure the STB is working fine as I can run plugreport under ubuntu
and get the following output.
Host Adapter 0
Node 0 GUID 0x0040ca070105fc56
libiec61883 error: error reading oMPR
libiec61883 error: error reading iMPR
Node 1 GUID 0x001aadfffe35b2e4
oMPR n_plugs=1, data_rate=2, bcast_channel=63
oPCR online=1, bcast_connection=0, n_p2p_connections=0
channel=0, data_rate=2, overhead_id=0, payload=376
iMPR n_plugs=0, data_rate=2
I think this indicates that the STB is active and talking to the
computer. What can I do to make Fedora 8 play nice with my STB? Anyone
run into this one before? I have googled but there is too much info and
most of it seems old and very confusing.
