PVR-500 & PVR-150 not working properly


Iíve searched ad nauseam for a solution, but nothing seems to work.

I built a myth box (see below) with a PVR-500 tuner card. As seems to be typical, the first tuner works ok (a little fuzzy), but the picture on the second is indistinguishable. I have PVR-150 in an almost identical machine that runs perfectly off the same input source (with no splitter). At this point I was ready to RMA the 500 and replace it with 2 150ís.

I pulled the 150 and put into the new box along with the 500. The 150 is set up at /dev/video0 and the 500 as /dev/video1 and /dev/video2. The picture from the 150 is still perfect, however neither picture on the 500 is usable. I am using the same video source (cable) as before still without a splitter. I just switch the cable from one card to the other. I was hoping that using the exact same input source would eliminate signal strength as a variable. I get the same results with a both inputs connected at the same time using a splitter.

Is there a hardware conflict I am not aware of? Software conflict? All tuners are configured identically as per Jarodís MythTV HOWTO.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Mike

Any luck with this. I just completed my MythTV build and I cannot get a good signal from Coax, SVideo or Component with my PVR500.

No luck. I RMAed the card an replaced it with 2 PVR-150s. They have been running perfectly for almost 4 months. Good luck, if you do find a solution, please let me know.

So, your 150s come though live and recorded as clean as a direct signal to your TV? On my 500, both my coax and s-video are just fuzzy. DVD and video playback are clean though... that proves it's not the output video card's fault. I will look for some 150s to try. Thanks!
