I have been tinkering around with a new PVR 350 and the ivtv drivers.
Installation was fairly straight forward, cat /dev/video0 > bla.mpg
yields a perfect picture.
However for whatever reason i cannot get mythtv to work together with
the ivtv driver. I tryed every input in the list ( and always bound my
provider to it before trying ).
I have tryed it with mythtv 1.3 (release +patch) and cvs latest, i also
switched back and forth between ivtv 0.17 and cvs latest.
I'm sure i'm missing something obvious, ivtv is clearly doing its job as
cat on /dev/video0 shows.
I tryed xamtv for the hell of it and it doesn't work either ( in the
same manner as mythtv, it will yield a black screen no matter which
input i take ) but i read that this tool doesn't work together with ivtv
in general so no suprise here.
My system is gentoo linux with 2.6.1 kernel using jclark's patches
( might that be it ? )
