Kworld DVB-T 323UR problems

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi everyone,
I have a Kword DVB-T 323UR connected to a Linux Mint 7 Gloria (based
on Ubuntu Jaunty), kernel 2.6.28.
I successfully compiled em28xx, the firmware was obtained based on these steps:
1) Download the windows driver with something like:
wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/xc5000/HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip
2) Extract the file hcw85bda.sys from the zip into the current dir:
unzip -j HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip Driver85/hcw85bda.sys
3) run the script:
./extract_xc3028.pl
4) copy the generated file:
cp xc3028-v27.fw /lib/firmware

My windows driver is called embda.sys, so I'm not sure whether the
firmware is 100% good for my tuner or not.
I have a couple of problems:
1. no analog audio, but I found out this works with workarounds

I tried several tricks:
a. sox -c 2 -r 32000 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp
this works, but with a 4-5 second delay between audio and video

b. arecord -D hw:1,0 -r 32000 -c 2 -f S16_LE | play -q -c 2 -r 32000 -t wav - &
I get an error:
laco@laco-desktop ~ $ arecord -D hw:1,0 -r 32000 -c 2 -f S16_LE | play
-q -c 2 -r 32000 -t wav - &

laco@laco-desktop ~ $ Recording WAVE 'stdin' : Signed 16 bit Little

         please, try the plug plugin
arecord: pcm_read:1529: read error: Input/output error
play wav: Premature EOF on .wav input file

c. install modified tvtime from mcentral.de
I get an error in this case too:
Reading configuration from /usr/etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml
Reading configuration from /home/laco/.tvtime/tvtime.xml
HDA NVidia : AD198x Analog hw:0,0
Em28xx Audio : Empia 28xx Capture hw:1,0

Access type not available

My arecord -l output is:
laco@laco-desktop ~ $ arecord -l

2. my remote is not recognized. Here is the em28xx part from dmesg:

Nothing about input devices here and neither in /proc/bus/input/devices.

3. heat problems
I noticed that when it is connected, it gets quite hot, even if no dvb
software is running. In Windows it does not get so hot, even when
watching tv.

Sorry for this long mail.
The first point would be the most important to solve, if you need more
details to help me, no problem.
Thanks, Laszlo
