    Default Do I need to do anymore openSUSE install tasks to finish the install of the WinTV HVR-2200 ( PCIe)?

    Hi,

    My goal with this, my first Linux project, is to reuse old hardware to make a PVR. I have a Fujitsu Espremo P400, which I have installed openSUSE 15.2 Leap and Plex. That's two of my goals completed - with your help - thanks.

    My next task in this project is to see if I can use two OLD TV cards that were sitting unused in a draw.

    PCIe - TV Card - WinTV-HVR-2200 DVB-T, Multi-Pal 89619 LF Rev D3F2
    D
    ell AVerMedia TVT5 M779 Internal PAL-SECAM-DVBt Hybrid TV Tuner

    I installed the cards before openSUSE to see what it picks up. When I look at hardware information through YaST2, I can see the two tuners listed. But only the HVR-2200 has the setting Drivers>Active=Yes. I don't expect the Dell tuner to work, but the HVR-2200 is still supported by Hauppauge & Plex under Linux.

    Before I head over to the Plex forum, could I ask you please, do I need to do anymore openSUSE install tasks to finish the install of the WinTV HVR-2200 PCIe card? I ask this because Plex does not see any tuners when searching.

    Also, can you recommend other openSUSE TV recording software that could also utilise my cards?

    Thanks

    Hi leejenson,

    According to the (German) Hauppauge page the HVR-22xx should be supported since Kernel 2.6.37. Following the link you have provided you'll find

    https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.p...WinTV-HVR-2250

    Installing this firmware is all that is needed.
    Not sure if the link works inside the quote:
    http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr2...010-03-10.1.fw

    Just copy it into /lib/firmware and reboot. Kaffeine is quite a nice application for watching and recording TV. It should find the card after copying the firmware file.
