Smile Hauppage WinTV PVR 350


Ok, I need serious help here (I'm totally stressing on this right now)....

I just bought a Hauppage PVR 350 and I wish to get it to run in Suse Linux 9.3. It saw the card at least, but the tv programs that come with Suse arent working. I'm trying to setup MythTv but keep hitting a road block every time. Right now I try to install libmyth through YAST but it prompts I need to install DVB, I also tried a newer version of libmyth & that one wants freetype 2.


Help please.

Robert

Ok I got mine working, finally....here is a quick breakdown of what I did & installed. Hopefully it'll help you. I'll also post the links I used for the files I needed.

1) Made sure I had qt3, qt3-devl, kernerl source, mysql, mysql-client installed.
2) Downloaded ivtv-0.2.0-rc3c (the newer versions didn't work for me) and copy from the utils folder videodev2.h to the driver folder: run make & make install on utils f& driver folder, may error out with and Error 2 at the end
3) Downloaded Video-frequencies, Video-ivtv & Config-init files from sourceforge.net (may want to google that to verify) (install these as well, "perl Makefile.PL" then make & make install
4) Downloaded pvr48wdm_2.8.22037.exe from the link below:
ftp://ftp.shspvr.com/download/wintv-..._1.8.22037.exe
5) Go into the ivtv-0.2.0-rc3c/utils and run ./ivtvfwextract.pl /path/to/pvr48wdm_1.8.22037.exe
6) Move the ivtv-fw*.bin files (there are 2) from the /lib/module to /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware instead
7) Reboot the system
8) Go back into the /ivtv-0.2.0-rc3c/utils folder & run ./ptune-ui.pl, in that window select a channel you know should come in.
9) Leave that terminal open & open a new one. Run cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test.mpg (requires mplayer to verify)
10) After a while press ctrl-c to close that window & the other as well. Navigate to the /tmp folder & see if the file works.

If it does, download Mythtv & install.

Link #1 (Myth install guide; which is more in depth than mine) http://www.homerengineeringcorp.net/mythtv/myth.html

Link #2 (A link to install mplayer + other things alot easier, including mythtv) http://www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/178/42/

If you get everything installed, only issue I had is with the mythbackend, I needed to modify the file for my users (its default is mythtv as the username)

Hope this helps.

Robert
