WinTV PVR USB2
My Hauppauge WinTV PVR USB 2 worked well with SUSE 11.1, but not with SUSE 11.2. However I need 11.2 to run my KVM machines.
I still get video and sound from /dev/video0, but xawtv cannot display the video any longer, so I cannot switch channel. xawtv complains
ioctl: VIDIOC_S_FREQUENCY(tuner=0;type=ANALOG_TV;frequency=772): Numerical result out of range v4l2: read: rc)262144/size=331776
So I try to build kernel 18.104.22.168, but that gives me the problem https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11166/ Having resolved that error as described, I cannot boot my system from 22.214.171.124, because ext4 is unknown to the kernel. So I
and try to analyze it with qgit, but to no avail. So I switch on ext4 support in 126.96.36.199 and compile again.
Trying to compile the kernel driver from source I get
/root/pvrusb2-mci-20081019/driver/pvrusb2-dvb.h:5:26: error: dvb_frontend.h: No such file or directory
v4l-dvb contains it, see
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
Even the kernel sources contain /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvb_frontend.h
xawtv-remote setstation 27
Get a decimal volume

My video looks much nicer when I play it using
as adviced at http://www.isely.net/pvrusb2/usage.html#Logging
Tried http://sourceforge.net/projects/tv-viewer/files/tv-viewer_stable_0.8.x/0.8.1.1/tv-viewer-0.8.1.1.tar.gz/download. This program helped me find out the frequences I needed.
Changed the channel via
tweedleburg:~/tv-viewer-0.8.1.1 # echo "224250000"> /sys/class/pvrusb2/sn-8567330/ctl_frequency/cur_val tweedleburg:~/tv-viewer-0.8.1.1 # cat /sys/class/pvrusb2/sn-8567330/ctl_frequency/cur_val 224250000
- vdr gives me
vdr.c:35:28: fatal error: sys/capability.h: No such file or directory
yast -i libcap-devel
Now I got an error, solution was to #include <types.h> into vdr.c. Then I got an error and had to copy two config files to /video Now when I start vdr, I only get
vdr: no primary device found - using first device!
