AverTV DVB-T 777 and the remote

Posted 08-24-2007 at 05:39 AM by Caysho

I started to look at what is needed to get the remote working.

This indicates patching is possible, but there's a note about support being in more recent kernels.

The board is referenced as SAA7134_BOARD_AVERMEDIA_777 in the saa7134 source; SAA7134_BOARD_AVERMEDIA_A16AR is also mentioned, and seems to be the chipset reference - I've seen it in the win32 inf, so the 777...

KnoppMyth R5F1

KnoppMyth R5E50 and AverTV DVB-T 777 and Digital Out

I upgrade MythTV and had problems with my tuners being detected as "V-Stream Studio TV Terminator".
This blog entry details what's happening and I was able to fix it.

The changes are good for the most part - DVD playback is ok, though a bit squashed. decss is needed, linkage is here.
I lost SPDIF Optical out, but got it back with these details.

OpenSlug NAS

Posted 04-04-2007 at 07:54 AM by Caysho

I recently got myself one of these.
I flashed it with OpenSlug 3.10, and I'm doing the following with it:
  • Sharing a 250 GB drive with samba.
  • Sharing a printer (Samsung ML-1740) with cups
  • Torrent box with transmission and dtach
  • NTP server with the listen option in the OpenNTPD configuration file.

I want to change the torrent software to rtorrent, but there's a few problems with it on the Slug. The solution to the first problem doesn't work for me, and I'm using ext3.
