Hi, Welcome to LQ.

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a question that may have been answered before.

Did you run ./configure before make?

Maybe you did not need to, see the readme or install notes with the package.

try...

lsmod from a shell terminal (cli) and see if the module is loaded.

with modprobe and other linux commands, no news is good news.

You could try lspci to see what the card gives as info. or lspci -v for more.

make menueconfig should work if you have the dev packages installed, you could also try

make xconfig. use the search/find button to quickly locate the device module....

regards Glenn

Well, I wonder if grep'ing for this exit status in the source could help, may help understand what the exit status means

Looks like it's all there.

What program will you use to view the streams?

kmplayer and others should do it, but I'm not experienced with dvb.

You'll probably have to check the Mandriva errata and other docs to find out....

Or someone here may know.

btw, if the module does not load at system startup, you can add the module name to /etc/modprobe.preload (as root to save)

Code:
# /etc/modprobe.preload: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line.  Comments begin with
# a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
# this file is for module-init-tools (kernel 2.5 and above) ONLY
# for old kernel use /etc/modules
option #modem
psmouse
evdev #usb mouse
snd_seq_oss
cx18 # add this line
#leave and empty line at the end to signify eof.
for example...

you might also consider v4l2 (video for linux 2), it's newer and may suit your hardware better.

Cheers, Glenn

LOL I actually have this same card and according to alot of online sources it is supposed to work and it "kinda" does. NOTE: I have yet to be able to actually watch live tv on this card but it does scan channels correctly and it does setup correctly in mythtv. The distro that I used was ubuntu 9. I really think that there are several of these cards that are just configured differently and the ones people have been able to get working correctly is a specific kind. I have used diffrent programs to try and watch live tv but all i ever get is nothing or access denied errors from the /dev/video0 device.

I wish I could be more help to you and I am interested to see if you actually can get it working.

Best of luck

Hi, add yourself to the video group, should help with access denied.

or add the video group to your user group.

I generally use the wheel group for this (as a middle man).

<edit> I forgot to mention, setting up sudo to allow the wheel group admin priv. You need to be root, su or sudo

sudo vi /etc/sudoers (remove the hash#)
Code:
.....
%wheel  ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
.....
This may not be safe..... You are warned. ;-)
</edit>
Also the chipset revision number can make all the difference with pci cards.

I had similar problems with setting up a wireless-network (802.11g)

cheers, Glenn

Bummer!

That's all I got, sorry.

You could check the contrib and plf repos for a package that is meant for your device.

cheers, Glenn

Please post back with your solution, it may help others.
