ATI Rage 128 and Rage Pro

Post by markosjal »

I have one of these older cards (was never clear on which beast exactly) . Arte these early ATI cards NOT compatible? I thought they were through the GATOS drivers but I can not find a how to anywhere that is complete.

I just installed Mint 9 with Hauppauge HVR-1255 card. The drivers are there, but according to dmesg I need to set the option "card=20" in the insmod.

I see there are instructions about creating or modifying files but I'm a bit confused which file it is on Mint 9 that needs to be edited. Do I need to edit /etc/modules file? What exactly do I put in there?

In case someone searches an application for Devices with a build-in hardware mpeg2 encoder like the devices supported by the ivtv, pvrusb2, cx18 or cx88-blackbird driver have a look at TV-Viewer. So far only analog TV is supported but this will change in a future Release.

Hy everyone,

I read every post, and tried solutions offered, but as more as I try more it seems that I do not know exactly what my problem is.
So I have Asus Tv-FM 7134 card and Linux Mint 9: Isadora. The thing is that when I run Tvtime, Kaffeine or even Me-TV TV card isn't recognized.
And to get things even more stupid, Skype recognizes it and with no problem plays static from it. So on with the relevant info:

This is my first day with Linux Mint and first (and only) problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also I will

I just installed Linux Mint 10 and I'm trying to get my Avermedia Aver Tv Go 007 FM (analog) to work. I've used this card in older versions of Ubuntu and openSuSE 11.3, but it doesn't seem to work in mint.
I tried:

Code: Select all

vali-desktop vali # modprobe saa7134_alsa
vali-desktop vali # modprobe saa7134 i2c_scan=1
and

Code: Select all

modprobe saa7134_alsa
modprobe saa7134 card=52 tuner=5
I even added these modules to /etc/modules and restarted my system.

Code: Select all

Well, thanks for all the help but it ain't working. I'm not new to linux, but I'm new to Mint. But I love it.

Anyway, I followed the steps above to install my tv @nywhere card and started up tvtime. Without success. And now I'm stuck. Having no knowledge about how the tv stuff works in linux, I'm asking you for advice plz ;-)

Well, I tried to follow this guide but it is a bit unclear to me. I own an MSI TV@nywhere Pro and uses Mint Julia 64-bit.

I tried to follow this guide but maybe I used the wrong number? Anyway, it ain't working :-(
82 -> MSI TV@Anywhere plus [1462:6231]

Any advice? Meanwhile, I'll try again, over and over...

For info - Hauppauge 1300 (notoriously difficult to get going with Linux) just works with LMDE, TVHeadend and XBMC - as does my no-name Winfast dongle.

For those who have loopback issues and experience the "no sound issue", try the following:

(loopback issues: no cables between your pci tv card and your sound card)

1. turn on tvtime
2. open a terminal and enter the following:

Code: Select all

pactl load-module module-loopback
It should work immediatly, at least it did for me.

This is really working, thank you for sharing this wonderful information.

Hi chenyixiu

please run lsusb ( within a terminal ) with the stick connected and see if your stick is a least found. :roll:
If it is, :) then you can use the very first post in this thread to get it working :D or at least know which name to google for :P ( mostly based on chip sets and not brand names ).

I do wonder why you using mint 7 :? Will limit your options on this kind of hardware! :mrgreen:

First post for meeeee! Love Mint!
I have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250, and when I had Mint 10.04, the functionality was "sketchy". I was using MythTV and when I would connect the antenna, it would receive a signal for a few seconds then the comp would log out completely out of my account! This is what I get for lsmod | grep dvb:

Thanks!

I think there is some issue with the compatibility, I too had a similar problem a little while back but getting the card changed did work out for me. Checking the list of the compatible cards is the key.

Could you add Creatix CTX948 (chipset Philips SAA7134) to your list, was build in a Medion PC MD8833 (among others).

Thx,

My dear Serbian friend,
Is there any chance ATI Theater 200 chip is supported (ATI All In Wonder 2006 PCI Express)

There seems to be a Linux driver
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/l ... ng=English

Advise which software to use

Re: List of support TV tuner card on Linux mint and How to

Post by jems »

I have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 which I bought from Newegg a few years ago:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6815116037
Over the years, I've not had much success making it work. I tried OpenSuse, and Ubuntu. However, yesterday, I got it to work in Linux Mint 13! It was actually very easy.
I used some of the info in this http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/H ... V-HVR-2200

Here's all I had to do:
1) physically install the card. The following showed up in dmesg:
[ 4.604840] saa7164 driver loaded
[ 4.604890] saa7164 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16

[ 4.947883] saa7164_downloadfirmware() Upload failed. (file not found?)

I then followed the comment from the Wiki:
"This necessitated the download of http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx ... 03-10.1.fw and copy to /lib/firmware/<current kernel>"

So, I downloaded, and installed the file:
# cp NXP7164-2010-03-10.1.fw /lib/firmware/`uname -r`

Then rebooted. Upon doing so, the following showed up in dmesg:

[ 6.222892] saa7164 driver loaded

Once that was done, I installed kaffeine, had it 'scan' for channels, and I was watching TV.
The only thing left is getting ALL the channels. For some reason, it only picked up about half of my digital TV channels.

Still working on that.
I hope this helps anyone else trying to get DTV cards to work!

I'm using Kaffeine, which seems pretty cool. It has nice recording, and scheduled recording options. Somehow, it picks up the schedules of what is on each channel for the upcoming day.

I tried installing configuring MythTV, but there were countless configuration questions/options. Questions/options like:

Phase Inversion Frequency
Photon Inertial Dampener Seed
Transcode Multiplier
Video Differential Offset
Digital Frequency Dampener Value
Reverse Allignment Tertiary Gain Setting
Primary Video Colorburst Angle

Ok, I made that up. But similar questions and I had no clue. :)

Kaffeine just worked.

Re: List of support TV tuner card on Linux mint and How to

All reported tv tuners that work on linux are on linuxtv.org . Also info on how and what is needed to get them to work if anything. For example the wintv 1600 model is supported without doing anything. Just fire up kaffeine and get going.
