Okay, I have done this walk through 3 times now. Started over from format
every time, just to make sure there wasn't something that I was forgetting.
However, all 3 times, the exact same things happens. I have four problems:
Problem 1: Mythtv frontend works (The first time I run it). Everytime I
reboot after that, when you go to watch tv, nothing happens. Reason being,
for some reason the modprobe is not picking up the ivtv or ivtv-fb. So I
can go in there and do a modprobe ivtv, and everything loads up just fine,
and I can watch TV just fine.
Problem 2: MythTV frontend (watching TV) works just fine, until I reboot
for the first time. Then after I do a modprobe for ivtv, I can watch one
channel. I can not change channels at all, unless I pull out the changer
script used in his walk through.
Problem 3: lircd works the first time, but after a reboot, it no longer
works. Error messages in /var/log/messages says that it can not find lirc
in /dev/. First I have to do a modprobe for ivtv or anything else in
modprob.conf, and then if I go in there, and do ln -s lirc lirc0, then I can
get irw to at least start, however, once started, I have NEVER gotten the
remote to work. I have changed batteries and done everything I can think of
to get it working, but nothing works. (I have the PVR-350 with the grey
remote, and I am using the correct config for that remote in /etc/lirc.conf)
Problem 4: I have yet to figure out the proper things to put in xorg.conf
to make X go out to the outport of my PVR-350. When I to an lspci -v, its
on 02:00.0 . But when I put that into the xorg.conf that is used in Jarods
walkthrough, it just crashes the computer, and nothing goes out to the tuner
Any ideas on any of this? I can post anything that you guys need. Thanks
