Do you have some particular application with which you think it "works?" If by works you mean a /dv/video0 and /dev/dvb/* ar created and the kernel log shows no errors, then it works. By works I mean there is some application (I listed several) which actually has audio and video, and the number of such I can identify is still zero. When analog cards were being made virtually every application worked fine,On Tue, Aug 11, 2009 at 1:37 PM, Bill Davidsen<davidsen@xxxxxxx> wrote:Since you quoted the HVR-950Q as working, I tried one of those. Someone else said the ATI HDTV-Wonder works. Neither do. I tried all of the programs people swore work with these cards: tvtime, xawtv, cheese, and vlc. Mythtv appears to need the whole system tuned to be a pvr, not the intent here, users want to monitor CNN, MSNBC, and similar news or financial channels in a window without needing to get a TV for each seat.Well since I did the support for the HVR-950Q, I'm pretty sure it works. :-) With regards to the "ATI HDTV-Wonder" card you referred to, there are many cards with that name, so you would need to be more specific (providing a model number and bus type). For example, I did the work for the "ATI TV Wonder HD 600 USB". For analog support, both of the above cards work fine with tvtime.
I went out and got the HVR-950Q because you said it worked, as noted above the kernel like it but nothing I can find will use it usefully, I posted the lspci -vvvv for the ATI HDTV-Wonder, what exactly more do you need to identify a specific card? This is the problem I've had for years, that cards with the same part number aren't the same part. :-(If you have a specific case that is causing you problems, please provide details as to exactly which card you are trying to use, which distro and application you are using, and what errors you are seeing and we will see if we can help you debug your problem. But saying vague things like "nothing works" isn't really a constructive way to improve your situation.
And after all that I am still at ground zero, not only nothing I would date try to give to an end user, but nothing I want to use myself, tuning by frequencies in MHz, good grief! The kernel loads drivers and makes entries in /dev/dvb and/or /dev/videoN, but none of the software people suggested does anything useful.You only need to tune to something specifying MHz if you are using the command line tools. The GUI applications have built in mechanisms to change channels. I agree that there is plenty of room for improvement in the application space. Feel free to roll up your sleeves and help out (that's how I got involved in the project, after all). Given the number of devices people are demanding support for, we are quite understaffed and could use all the help we could get. Devin
