Thread: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950 USB TV Tuner Problems

  1. #1

    Angry Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950 USB TV Tuner Problems

    According to LinuxTV, this TV Tuner is supported by Linux.

    I followed the directions on this webpage, but I was unable to use the TV Tuner.

    Code:
    dmesg | grep dvb
    outputs
    "em28xx #0/2: dvb frontend not attached. Can't attach xc3028"

    What does this mean?

    I used Google to search for remedies, but I was unable to find one.

    Others posted on this forum that they were able to use the tuner, but there are no solutions to their issues. Does anyone have any solutions to my problem?

    I have updated the HCL/TV Cards page to include a compatibility with the device.
    Whenever you plug in the device for the first time, note what is stated in the kernel log. KSystemLog should make it easy to track the changes in the kernel log. As stated on the HCL/TV Cards page, the only problem experienced is audio capture.

    I get this message:

    Em28xx: Initialized (Em28xx dvb Extension) extension

    I take it this is a good thing, but I do not know what to do from here. The Yast TV module does not seem to automatically recognize it, I can't find the HVR 950 in the list of devices I can select manually, tvtime does not seem to pick up the device, and xawtv and motv don't work at all (they need dga which nvidia no longer supports).

    TvTime would not work for me automatically, because it uses /dev/video0 by default, which was assigned to my webcam.
    I had to pass the arguments "-d /dev/video1" each time I started. However, I am sure one can make this change in the config file.
    Make sure you use the video device that corresponds to your TV Tuner. Yes, unfortunately, this device is not supported by YaST.

    TheBlackCat, what is "dga" by the way? I am using Intel's 965GM Integrated video card.

    I only have one video device. I am still getting "No signal" with tvtime. Tvtime doesn't seem to have an option for DVB or ATSC. How do I set it up to use HD broadcasts?

    Hi
    Have you tried a scan? assuming you have the dvb tools installed;
    Code:
    scan /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB -o zap | tee
    ~/atsc_channel.conf

    The scan failed to find any channels.

    Hi
    So it's actually working as such, creating a /dev/dvb/adaptor0
    directory. You get the correct output from dmesg when you plug the
    device in? I'm also assuming you used the relevant scan file releated
    to your location?

    tvtime does not and never has worked with DVB tuners.

    Also, remember that TvTime, although a wonderful TV viewing application, is unable to record television. TheBlackCat, you may have more success with MythTV, but be prepared to invest at least 3 hours configuring it.
