Hi All In december I posted a message regarding some issues with the dvico driver. http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-December/031137.html The kernel is reporting incorrect callback of the firmware. Also, if the tuner isn't being used for a few hours, I then get errors from mythtv about it not being able to contact the backend and only rebooting the system will fix the problem (restarting mythbackend and frontend does not help). I eventually reported this as fixed to do with bios settings but I was wrong. I have done alot more testing and have found that it seems to be only after mythtv has accessed the device where this problem beings begins... I will try the latest hg version and see what happens. I will also try another tv application and see if that makes a difference (but I really would like to continue using mythtv as I have 2 other frontends). More information.. (and questions). I know I definitely didn't have this problem with earlier versions of the driver (roughly pre September.. Chris Pascoe's original version actually seemed more stable although didn't report correct signal strength) The cpu is a an opteron 170 2GB of OCZ DDR500 RAM (clocked at standard 400 of course, not overclocking this thing actually unless watching HD it is usually sitting at 1000MHZ) Nvidia 7600 GS video card (as I read horrible things about my onboard ATI chipset) using nvidia drivers not using xvmc however. I have eliminated the motherboard as since I originally reported the issue I have changed mobo (from nvidia nforce4 chipset to ati chipset.... primarily to get a micro atx mobo for my HTPC case). Fairly standard kernel with pre-emption (should I be using an rt patched kernel??) Are there any other kernel options I should remove or add??? I am using the most recent unstable Gentoo release of mythtv (0.21_p19046) but saw the same problem on the most recent stable release too. Are there any compile time options (or USE flags) I need to set or unset?? The system also houses my third tuner/second card, a dvico fusion lite (older pci version rock solid stable).. Are there any modules.conf settings I need to look out for (although it worked before ...).... As I said, I will try out the latest hg version tonight.. but any advice would be appreciated greatly!!! cheers Allan _______________________________________________ linux-dvb users mailing list For V4L/DVB development, please use instead linux-media@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx linux-dvb@xxxxxxxxxxx http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/linux-dvb
