I have been using mythdora 5 with an analog tuner card with no problem until the cable company went digital. Now I am having tuner card and channel listing issues.
Mythdora 5 will not populate the channel listings. I am using schedules direct. Since the cable went digital, I am unable to get a channel lineup. I just installed the hauppauge wintv-hvr-1600. Mythdora 5 will not detect it. I need to know if mythdora 12 will work with the 1600. It has dual analog and digital tuners so it should work with digital cable. I am stuck and need to know if I should dump mythdora 5 and use mythdora 12.
What does "gone digital" mean? Are they delivering an over-the-air HD signal? Encrypted HD? You should have no problem finding a box that will convert an over-the-air HD signal to analog. That way you don't have to mess with your current setup.
As soon as you start down the HD broadcast road, you'll need sufficiently faster hardware, and lots more storage to handle all aspects of HD content.
Thanks for the leads. I first tried opensuse and installed the mythtv packages years ago, but never got it to work. The all in one mythdora was much easier. I liked the interface and am sad to see it go. I would like to use another distro similar to mythdora that is also compatable with the Hauppauge wintv-hvr-1600. I am unable to get mythdora 5 to detect the card and want to make sure the card is good. I recently purchased it on-line as used. I could not find any info to cross reference the card with a compatible linux distro.
I opened a terminal, typed gcc and make with no jobs for them to do and found that gcc and make are installed. A few times, I had to compile nvidia drivers for opensuse which also needed the kernel headers, so not sure if the cx18 driver will require them and not sure if the kernel headers are installed. I ran the yum groupinstall. You were correct. I did receive an error.
I compiled the driver, no error, unloaded, then got the error when I issued the modprob cx18:
error inserting cx18
unknown symbol in module or unknown parameter
error inserting dvb_core
also could not make menuconfig. I followed the directions in the link. The make install, make unload and modprobe cx18 was done in a root terminal. The fact that make unload and modprobe needs to be run suggests to me that the driver is temporary until the next reboot.
