Hi Paul,

My HD-PVR2 is a model 157320.  I am guessing yours does not have the S/PDIF
input?  Can you send me the output from `hauppauge2 --list`?

Make sure you have it configured for the correct inputs; both audio and
video.  At least with the HD-PVR1, it would fail to capture even video, if
it did not detect audio.

If you can send me the log, I might spot something, but no guaranty, since
I don't know what most of the Hauppauge stuff means.  If using the config
file, you may have to set override-loglevel to info or debug to get
information from the Hauppauge 'driver'.


PS. For use with MythTV, I am coming to the conclusion that the Colossus2
is superior to the HD-PVR2.  For example, it has better support for 5.1
