Happauge 250 PVR not working.


Hi.

I have a Hauppauge 250 tv tuner card. I bought it because I heard it works on Linux. But when I go to Mandrake control center and go hardware and then TV card it says there is no tv tuner. But when I go hardware it says that there is one. It is called iTVC16 (CX23416) MPEG-2 Encoder. I installed freevo through URPMI and it won't let me watch tv or program shows. It works on Windows what do I have to change. I am running mandrake 10.1 community.

I tried that but I sill can't get it to work. The problem is when I typ ein make it says
make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build SUBDIRS=/home/administrator/ivtv-0.3.2c/utils/ivtv-0.3.2c/driver modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2

What do I do?

First you should get the ivtv-0.2.0-rc3e.tgz from cKennedy's site.
The ivtv-0.3.2c is the unstable branch so YMMV.

The " /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build: No such file or directory." is because you haven't installed
the proper kernel source. If you had, the /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build would point to that.

Seeing that you run Community I'd recommend an upgrade to Official before you start (if possible).

Well I can't get official to work and I am too lazy to fiddle around with it so oh well. Anyways I can get up to
/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/
So I logged in as root and I made the folder went on my account now it says this
[administrator@localhost driver]$ make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build SUBDIRS=/home/administrator/ivtv-0.3.2c/utils/ivtv-0.3.2c/driver modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build'
make: *** [all] Error 2
[administrator@localhost driver]$

You can't just make a /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build directory and pretend everythings OK.
The build directory is a link to wherever the matching kerne source is.

As I said in my previous post : You need to install the kernel source for 2.6.8.1-10mdk. That will make
/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build be a symbolic link to /usr/src/linux-2.6.8.1-10mdk (I think).

So run 'rmdir /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-10mdk/build' and 'urpmi kernel-source-2.6.8.1' and try again.

I did the first thing and this is what happened when I did the second thing
[root@localhost administrator]# urpmi kernel-source-2.6.8.1
no package named kernel-source-2.6.8.1
[root@localhost administrator]# urpmq kernel-source
The following packages contain kernel-source:
kernel-source-2.4
kernel-source-2.6
kernel-source-stripped-2.6
[root@localhost administrator]# urpmi kernal-source-2.6
no package named kernal-source-2.6
[root@localhost administrator]# urpmi kernel-source-2.6
Everything already installed
[root@localhost administrator]#

Either you have some problem with your urpmi config or the CE didn't contain kernel sources.
(That's why I suggested upgrading to OE)

You can get the 10.1 kernel and source from your favorite MDK mirror
(like ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distrib.../main_updates/ )

Get kernel-2.6.8.1.24mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm and kernel-source-2.6-2.6.8.1-24mdk.i586.rpm and
'rpm -i' them both. Reboot and make sure to choose that kernel.

Then you should be able to compile ivtv. Note that the ivtv module will only work with that kernel.

And now I can log in in it but now on my load page I have these

Linux
Linux Somehting
Fail Safe
Windows
Gib numbers
Gib kernal numbers

How can I get it the Gib kernal numbers to become Linux?

Also when I log in I can type make and make file now can't type in these
7: type 'depmod -ae'

8: type 'modprobe ivtv'
Both of them say there is no action. When I go on as root it doesn't show anythign it just goes
[root@localhost driver]# depmod -ae
[root@localhost driver]#

Now what do I have to fix?

The entry at the bottom of you boot screen should read "2681-24mdk" or something similar

Use the down-arrow key on your keybord to navigate down to that entry and hit <Enter>
After login (as root) type 'uname -r' , the answer should be "2.6.8.1-24mdk".

Now you have to compile ivtv against this kernel.

To make sure you've installed the source to this kernel type 'ls /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-24mdk/build'
You should see a lot of files like "MAINTAINERS" and "REPORTING-BUGS".
If not you haven't installed the kernel-source

Get the ivtv-0.2.0-rc3f.tgz from http://205.209.168.201/~ckennedy/ivtv/ and untar it.
(You might have to get the 2.6.8.1 file from his "new_tuners" subdir but we'll worry about that later)
Enter the directory, do a 'make' and everything should be OK.

I get this.
[root@localhost administrator]# ls /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-24mdk/build
/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-24mdk/build@
[root@localhost administrator]#

Does that mean it is installed?
/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-24mdk/build@
IS what it accualy says.

Darn, I should've written /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-24mdk/build/ with a slash at the end.

But, since you have the link (the ending @ means it's a symbolic link) you're good to go.

But then why does it not work? Linux doesn't reconise it and it wont work in Freevo.

OK, so to recap. You have:

* Installed the 2.6.8.1-24mdk kernel and source
* Booted into that kernel ('uname -r' says "2.6.8.1-24mdk")
* Got ivtv-0.2.0-rc3f.tgz from http://205.209.168.201/~ckennedy/ivtv/ and untarred it somewhere
* Entered that directory and run 'make' , 'make install' and 'depmod -a' as root (with no errors)

If something above's not correct please post error messages.It's hard to debug using the "it doesn't work" info.

If everything's correct so far youre almost good to go.

* Get the "Current Recommended Firmware" from http://205.209.168.201/~ckennedy/ivtv/ and use
the ivtvfwextract.pl in the utils directory of the ivtv source to extract the ivtv firmware.
* Run 'modprobe ivtv'
* Run 'dmesg' . You should see a lot of ivtv info

If all that's OK the next thing is to set up Freevo (but I can't help you with that).

When I enter the modprobe ivtv and the depmod -a I get nothing its like this.
[thestuffinbarckets]# depmod -a
[thestuffinbrackets]#
And exactly which file do I get from there?
