[mythtv-users] HDPVR worked for 2 days, no more worky now.

So I connected the Motorolla DCT-6416 svideo to the HD-PVR along with rca
cables, but stll not working. The front svideo and rca jacks on the HD-PVR
work with Windows. I confirmed this using my Wii because the DCT-6200 is too
far away. I also know that the Svideo connection on the cable box works with
my pvr-150.

Here is the error in mythbackend.log:

2010-05-22 07:46:08.300 TVRec(3): Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
2010-05-22 07:46:08.306 TVRec(3): HW Tuner: 3->3

2010-05-22 07:46:08.540 TVRec(3) Error: Failed to set channel to 930.
Reverting to kState_Non

When I plug in the HD-PVR, I get this in dmesg:

[42994.600036] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address

[42995.091833] hdpvr 1-1:1.0: device now attached to /dev/video4

However there is no /dev/video4:

# ls -la /dev/video*

crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 1 2010-05-21 20:05 /dev/video32

cat /dev/video1 was working before but now I get:

stephen at mythbox:~$ cat /dev/video1 > test.ts
cat: write error: Bad address
