sorry, I know, that this is not directly related to MythTV but I hope
somebody can help out.
I have a Haupauge HVR4000 which worked well for a few weeks (after I
figured out, how to do a channel scan in Myth...)
However for no apparent reason the card can no longer gets a channel
lock (neither in MythTV nor Kaffeine). I don't see anything in the
syslog or myth logs. It seems the firmware is loaded as usual.
Additionally I had the same issues when I first tried to setup this
system (then, it was Mythbuntu 9.10 with Jean-Yves vdpau repo).
Unfortunately I didn't have time for my HTPC and so I set it away. I
thought maybe the card was broken.
When I restarted my efforts in setting up a HTPC I formatted the system
and installed Mythbuntu 10.10. and the card worked again. Up until last
I can only guess that it might be related to the firmware and that
reinstalling the system might have reinitialized the card. Does anyone
have any hints where I could start searching?
If it matters: The last thing I did, before it stopped working, was
setting up lirc (I have an Antec Remote Fusion Black with an iMON VFD +
IR Receiver). I did not install any updates. In the meantime a few
kernel updates came out and I thought they might help, so I installed
them. Well it didn't change anything.
