I recently bought a PVR150. I installed the IVTV Drivers and the card
seemed to be working. Without cable or antenna hooked up i would get
static and static noise. I could pause and rewind the static so i went
ahead with the myth install/setup.
After a couple of reboots, i wanted to try it once more before moving
it to where my TV is and i got 2 seconds of static then it locked up
and after a few seconds of staring at a locked up screen, I was
returned to a Myth error screen "There was a problem with the video
After the error and a reboot i no longer had a "video0" in /dev/ . I
reloaded the drivers and got video0 back but the same thing happened
when i tested it.
I took out the card and put it in a windows XP machine and NO new
hardware was detected and nothing in the bios or device manager.
my question is - Could i have physically damaged the card by using the
"testing" IVTV Drivers? I dont think i have ever seen drivers damage a
peice of hardware but is it possible?
