Thread: Leap 42.3 and pcHDTV HD-5500

    Default Leap 42.3 and pcHDTV HD-5500

    Hi:
    I have been using a pcHDTV HD-5500 TV card for several years under many
    versions of openSUSE up to 12.3 Now I have moved to the latest LEAP
    system (fully upgraded 42.3), and I can no longer gain access to the S-Video input, which I
    need. Has anyone succeeded with this combination, and if so what did you
    have to do to get it to work.

    Thanks

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    So what driver is it using from the output for the card from;

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk
    I see the cx23885 kernel module needs firmware (v4l-cx23885-enc.fw), so is the kernel-firmware package installed?

    Hi:

    Many thanks.


    I performed 'lspci -nnk' on both the Leap 42.3 and the 12.3 systems,
    along with the command 'lsmod' for the same two conditions. The relevant fragments are below.

    The actual command line that I use is:

    mplayer \
    tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:norm=NTSC-M:input=2:amode=0:width=720:height=480utfmt=yv12:device=/dev/video0

    I am unaware of any firmware requirement for this card.

    I have the complete listings should that be required - quite large so possibly better if I were to email them direct, should you want them.

    Thanks
