I am installing mythtv using the wilsonet.com documentation and
everything seemed to be going fine until I got to the point of testing
the video capture.
Next I will show some of the configuration.
When I enter /sbin/lspci -v I get the following for the wintv PVR 250
02:0a.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC16
(CX23416) MPEG-2 Encoder (rev 01)
Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. WinTV PVR 250
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
Memory at f0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=64M]
Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
[mythtv at localhost ~]$ ll /dev/video?
crw------- 1 mythtv root 81, 0 Sep 5 20:11 /dev/video0
[root at localhost mythtv]# /bin/dmesg |grep Initialized
[drm] Initialized drm 1.0.0 20040925
[drm] Initialized radeon 1.16.0 20050311 on minor 0:
ivtv: Initialized WinTV PVR 250, card #0
When I try to capture video nothing happens so I enter the following
# /usr/lib/ivtv/ptune-ui.pl &
# mplayer -vo xv /dev/video0
I now see the tuner and the mplayer window but the only way I can get a
picture in mplayer is to use the yellow video in on place the tuner on
composite 4. Whenever I try to get any video from the coax input I get
nothing. I have tried changing channels and still nothing. I even
tried a VCR set for channel 3 or 4 and got nothing to display. Any
ideas would be greatly appreciated.
