[mythtv-users] More PVR350 and X problems

Forgive me if this is way too obvious (it bit me but then I'm no genius when
it comes to Linux).

I got the exact same message as you prior to adding these.

Are you loading your ivtv drivers at startup? I put the following two
statements into my /etc/rc.d/rc.local :

/sbin/modprobe ivtv
/sbin/modprobe ivtv-fb


And it works a treat.

If that doesn't do the trick can you post your config files somewhere that
we can take a look?

I'll refresh mine if you'd like to check them out. The URL is :

Subject: [mythtv-users] More PVR350 and X problems

  Ive been following some of the recent threads regarding PVR350s and
  X, but alas my situation didnt appear to be covered!!

  Im running Linux 2.4.22-1.2199.nptl_52.rhfc1.at using Axels RPMs and
  ivtv 0.1.10pre2-ck104f (although I role back to thr 1.9 release and
  get the same result!).

  I can capture video fine with the 350. The test pattern displays fine,
  and if I fire up Myth it can use the 350s encoder to display a channel
  signal and change channels fine, sothere are no probems with the 350
  capturing or displaying.

 The problem starts when I try and boot with fb0 as the X display. All
 that happens is that I get a screen with a white cursor (it moves
 around the screen but nothing happens) and the following output occurs
 in the XFree86.log file:

(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such device
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

  As I say fb0 is available and appears to work for Myth/test pattern
  but I cant get things sorted with this card (Ive had X working with
  another 350 a while ago using exactly the same XF86Config file). Ive
  set the TV to auto standard so it accepts any signal (NTSC, PAL and
  SECAM) so this isnt a standards issue!

  Ive posted my XFree86.log, modules.conf, dmesg.txt (when I fire up
  normally without using fb0 as a display device .. not sure how to
  capture it for when I do try to use fb0 as an X display!) and
  XF86Config at the following URL:

  Appreciate if anybody could help with this, as it appears to be the
  last piece in the puzzle (well apart from integrating the PVR250 in
  :-)

  Thx .. if youve any queries please give me a yell!!
