depmod -ae runs through without any output, so I'm assuming it finishes without an error.

I tried something new. I added these source to my sources.list:
Code:
#Stable drivers for PVR250/350
deb http://www.hellion.org.uk/debian sid ivtv
deb-src http://www.hellion.org.uk/debian sid ivtv
Then I installed the ivtv-source pckage. I put a copy of the driver/firmware file in /usr/local/lib/firmware, and then in another test I put it in /lib/modules, like this guide said. Then I ran module-assistant auto-install ivtv. It seemed to install correctly, but I still get the same error when running modprobe ivtv. MythTV and Tvtime still don't see /dev/video0 as being there.

The same error as being that it doesn't exist? Also I assume /dev/video0 doesn't exist if modprobe ivtv fails.

Let's find out where ivtv is being installed
# updatedb
# locate ivtv.ko

Code:
julie:/lib/modules# locate ivtv.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.11/extra/ivtv.ko
Yet modprove ivtv still fails...

Show output of:
# ls /lib/modules

If /lib/modules/2.6.11-1-k7 exists try this:
# mv /lib/modules/2.6.11/extra/ /lib/modules/2.6.11-1-k7/
# depmod -ae
# modprobe ivtv

Code:
julie:/lib/modules# ls
2.6.11       2.6.8-2-386      ivtv-fw-enc.bin
2.6.11-1-k7  ivtv-fw-dec.bin  pvr48wdm_1.8.22037.exe
Moving the extra folder to 2.6.11-1-k7 worked. Now I can successfully load the ivtv module. That's only step one. After running:
Code:
# mknod /dev/video0 c 81 0
# mknod /dev/video16 c 81 16
# mknod /dev/video32 c 81 32
# mknod /dev/video224 c 81 224
I record some video by running:
Code:
dd if=/dev/video0 of=test.mpg bs=64k
But when I play it, I see only black for however long I recorded for. I can't test it in Tvtime, since that can't play live tv off the ivtv driver, and I haven't yet been able to install the mythtv backend. I'll come back later after trying to install the backend. If anyone has a particular guide they'd like to point me to, I'd appreciate it. Until then, I'll be on Google.

Try installing udev. Also did you delete the non-ivtv msp3400.ko?
# locate msp3400.ko

Delete the msp3400.ko in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ that isn't in the extra directory.

edit: also check out http://ivtv.writeme.ch/tiki-view_faq.php?faqId=1

I already have udev, but I'm not sure what I'd do with it. I already deleted the other msp3400.ko.

Here's something interesting:

Mine does the same thing (note: I have two pvr250's)..

mythtv:/home/mythtv# ivtvctl -m | grep iTVC
Card type : Vanilla iTVC15 card

That's reassuring.

That FAQ you sent me says that if the mpeg I pull from the card shows just a black screen I should set it to pull from a different input. After running ivtvctl -n to see my options, I set it to record from input 4, which is the tuner.

Now it's time to get mythtv working.

I can't seem to start the backend server:

Code:
julie:/# mythbackend
Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed

So without the backend up, mythfilldatabase soon fails:

I had this same problem. You need to make sure you load mc.sql into mysql. See my guide (the guide you originally posted was written by me) for some tips. HOPEFULLY it will help. Remember, if you change the root password in mysql to run
# dpkg-reconfigure mythtv-backend
If my guide doesn't help your going to have to do more googling. Let me know what you do so I can edit my guide.

So far, it's not working. After successfully running mythtv-setup, I try to run mythfilldatabase. That fails:
Code:
julie:~# mythfilldatabase
Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed
2005-06-27 22:01:43.826 New DB connection, total: 1

Unmarking repeats from grabber that fall within our new episode window...found 02005-06-27 22:01:43.939 Connecting to backend server: localhost:6543 (try 1 of 1)
So I try to start the backend first:
Code:
julie:~# /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend start
Starting MythTV server: mythbackendSession management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed
.
Your guide doesn't say to run the backend frist, but some other ones do, and that's what the mythfilldatabase error leads me to believe.

So basically I just can't start the backend. But myth-setup runs fine. I've successfully installed the mc.sql sql file, and matched the mythv user's password to the one I set in mythtv-setup. I don't see what I'm missing.

It's working now. I've changed so many things, I couldn't tell you exactly what it was that made this work. But I'll be installing this card again soon on a clean system, so I'll let you know then so you can add to the guide.
All that I have to do now is install the remote. That's a job for tomorrow.

Thanks for all the help.
