Getting TV Tuner Compro Video Mate to work


Hello,

I am trying to get my compro videomate tv tuner card to work.
I am using slackware 10 with kernel 2.4.26 but I have patched it with
the latest patch for kernel 2.4.26 from the video4linux website.
I am using tvtime as my client and I got the video to work beautifully
but I do NOT get any sound.
I have installed all my sound drivers with alsaconf and I can play
simple .wav files

It may be probably something wrong I am doing with the modprobe
parameters or some additional sound drivers I have to load. If anyone
can help me that would be great.

My modules.conf file looks like this:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
===========================
# i2c
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options i2c-core i2c_debug=1
options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1

# bttv
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 saa7134
options saa7134 card=21 tuner=2
options tuner debug=1 tuner=2

# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
# --- ALSACONF verion 1.0.6 ---
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
===========================

and dmesg after modprobing saa7134 and tuner looks like this:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
===================================================

Slackware 10.0 2.4.26

Aps tried:

xawtv
mplayer
zapping

I'm having this exact same problem. I have great video, but no sound. I have tried the suggestions in this thread. Here is my dmesg output:


Linux video capture interface: v1.00
i2c-core.o: i2c core module version 2.6.1 (20010830)
saa7130/34: v4l2 driver version 0.2.12 loaded

saa7133[0]: i2c eeprom 30: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff
i2c-core.o: driver i2c TV tuner driver registered.
tuner: chip found @ 0xc0
tuner: type set to 17 (Philips NTSC_M (MK2))
i2c-core.o: client [Philips NTSC_M (MK2)] registered to adapter [saa7133[0]](pos. 0).
saa7133[0]: registered device video0 [v4l2]
saa7133[0]: registered device vbi0



Now I see "saa7133[0]: dsp access wait timeout [bit=WRR]" which I'm sure is causing the problem, but haven't been able to find a way to fix it. Sound works great everywhere else. Double-checked all volume controls and my soundcard seems to be working fine. It's just getting the audio on the tuner card to work seems to be the issue.

I finally got this working with 2.6.10 and having soundcore (Sound System Support) compiled built in, then setting the card to 49 with modprobe.
