What mods do I need to install for: Hauppauge Nexus DVB-S


Hi:

After using /sbin/lspci my card the multimedia controller identifies my Hauppauge card (or it did at one time).

I am following the linuxtv wiki How_to_install_DVB, but having a few difficulties.

I then ran /sbin/lsmod, and found that the dvb_ttpci, dvb_core files were there along with a whole bunch of other files.

I then ran /sbin/modprobe for dvb_ttpci, dvb_core, but I think I am missing something as the /dev/dvb/adapter0/ does not exist, in fact the entire /dvb/ folder does not exist.

Also, after running modprobe, I reran /sbin/lspci and the multimedia controller was there, BUT my Hauppauge card was not.

I am using FC5 with the x86_64 intall package.

Components:
Cards: Hauppauge Nexus 2.2
CPU: AMD Athlon 64
Motherboard: Asus A8N-VM/CSM
Graphics card: ASUS EN6200TC256
Harddrive: Seagate SATA Drive

I am Linux newbie working through Jarod Wilson's guide for MythTV and Fedora.

Thanks in advance for any help.

what does the output of cat /proc/pci or cat /proc/dev/pci (can't remember the exact part) but it should show you every componen in your system.

Thanks for the command, I will try it when I get back to my system. However, I think I may have solved the issue, or at least it seems to be working.

Here is what I did, (remember complete newb with Linux, and more advanced users may think this is overkill).

Re-installed the system (Don't think this was actually necessary, but easier to blow everything away and restart, I am going to become an expert in the installation procedure). Is there such a thing as "go back to" point?

First, I think the card was always there, but using /sbin/lspci only gave me the top level stuff, I needed to use /sbin/lspci -v to get a full listing of all pci devices.

Second, I downloaded the firmware upgrades dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622 from LinuxTV/download/dvb/firmware and then using the move command (mv) to move and rename them into /lib/firmware/dvb-ttpci-01.fw

Third, I ran the following commands (This may have been overkill, as some of the files may have been installed automatically by modprobe when the others were ran)
/sbin/modprobe dvb_core
/sbin/modprobe dvb_ttpci
/sbin/modprobe SAA7146

There was one other file, but I can't remember what it was (I am not at my linux system right now), but it was linked to the dvb_core and dvb_ttpci files when I used /sbin/lsmod

The following directory was created and populated with files, but only after I rebooted the system /dev/dvb/adapter0/

Well onto the next step, and probably next question.

No there is no go back to point. I wish there was because that would have helped me out several times when I first started out with linux.
