cx88 - Hauppauge Chip
 
I am trying to delete my windows partition from my computer, and all that keeps me from doing that is my TV-Card... Hauppauge PCI FM based on the connexant cx881 Chip.
There is a driver in alpha version at bytesex.org, but as I'm pretty new to linux I wanna ask first if anybody tried that driver, and which result and/or problems he got.
So?
Thanx in advance /Lars

Hey Lars

I am battling with the same issue - although my card is a pixelview. The only way forward realistically is to get the new 2.6.4 kernel and compile it. They guys have had various success with the drivers built in there.

I have a bttv pixel view card. Works fine under suse 9.0, both tv and fm.

Angotull 03-25-2004 07:28 AM

Sorry - I should have clarified

I have pixelview playtv pro with the conexant chip

What distro are you guys using? Did you try setting the cardnumber in your systems?

Lars2000 03-25-2004 08:22 AM

Which cardnumber u mean? And where u wanna set it in?

bruno buys 03-25-2004 02:17 PM

Setting depends on the distro. In my SuSE 9.0 it's inside yast2 tv config, very easy.

There's a cardlist with numbers identifying the boards from # vendors. When setting the boardnumber correctly for your card, you tell the system which card it is.

Also, when you set the correct fm tuner, you avoid lots of config problems.

But you have to see where are you going to set this, in your specific setup.
Take a look:

Hi !

I have the Hauppage WinTV Go2.
Yast recognizes the card as a Winfast TV2000 XP.

Television does not work at all (no signal) . With S-Video / Composite from my VCR, I get a picture, but it's black and white. The 'snow' noise that should appear when i stop the tape is somewhat colorful.

I suppose there is a problem with the tuner and the television standard (Neither tvtime nor xawtv offer PAL-B/G).
I tried to change the tuner, e.g. "modprobe cx8800 tuner=5" but I get error messages like
cx8800: Unknown parameter `tuner'

How can I configure cx8800 to use a different tuner ?


I added the /var/log/messages, chip name, xawtv output and lspci output...

The printing on the card and chip is :

Conexant CX23881-27
E256691
0234 Korea

PAL-B/G
34704
REV E148

My system is Suse 9.2 with Suse Kernel 2.6.8-24.3 (default) .

I load the modules
modprobe cx8800
modprobe cx88xx

/var/log/messages says

Hi !

I got it to work.
I used this cx88 howto
http://www-users.york.ac.uk/~jcs116/wintv_cx88.html
and the cx88 CVS-Snapshot from Nov.09, 2004.

Only works with tvtime, not xawtv (maybe my xawtv is not up to date).
However, sound is only enabled in debug mode, not in television. This is anoying since switching channels is only possible in television mode.
With s-composite, there is also no sound but this is a problem of my VCR and the cable i use.

greetings,
Haarg
