Will your steps for the 150 work on R4V5 as well. I have tried everything to get R5A12 working. I get all the way through the install, but once it boots up the resolution is all messed up. I have tried a number of commands on install, but none will work. It says it is installing at the default of 640x480 etc.

when it boots from the cd or when it boots up after install?

if you are talking about booting from the cd then at the boot prompt type

knoppmyth vga=normal

This happens when it boots after install.
I have tried to use the knoppmyth vga-normal command in the boot options, but it will not acept the command.

Great! thanks for all the help! I couldn't figure out what adding 0x3000 to that one line did. Is that something I should think about?

Just noticed that I have the following lines at the bottom of my file, just want to make sure they are ok or if i should remove them.

options msp3400 once=1 simple=1
install ivtv /sbin/modprobe tuner; /sbin/modprobe msp3400; /sbin/modprobe saa7115;$
remove ivtv /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove ivtv && /sbin/modprobe -r saa7115 &&$

I had forgotten to chmod +R this file so I'll try this again when I get home.

That's to specify NTSC.

Also, made some edits to my original post to fix typos.

That's the ivtv file (a different file than what I was talking about, which is the set_ivtv_parms file). As far as I know, the lines you mention aren't needed in recent ivtv packages. My ivtv is as follows (for 1 350 and 1 500):

Code:
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias char-major-81-1 ivtv
alias char-major-81-2 ivtv
options ivtv ivtv_std=0,0,0 tuner=47,57,57 tda9887=0,0,0 ivtv_debug=1,1,1
#apparently the cx25840's i2c code only sees 150/500 cards, so we don't
#have to -1 for the 350.
options cx25840 no_black_magic=1 i2c_enable=1,1
#but the saa7127 has to be told to skip the 150/500 cards, so we -1,-1
#after the 1 for the 350.
#wow, this is not really optimal
options saa7127 i2c_enable=1,-1,-1
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1

well it seems its easy for me to confuse myself with this stuff, thank you for pointing that out!

Here are my files (just to make sure I got this all right):

/etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv:

alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias char-major-81-1 ivtv
options ivtv ivtv_std=0,0 tuner=57,57 tda9887=0,0 ivtv_debug=1,1
options cx25840 no_black_magic=1 i2c_enable=1,1
options saa7127 i2c_enable=-1,-1
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1

/etc/init.d/set_ivtv_params:

#!/bin/bash

#PVR-500 tuner 1
/usr/local/bin/ivtvctl -d /dev/video0 -u 1 -f width=720,height=480 -p 6
#PVR-500 tuner 2
/usr/local/bin/ivtvctl -d /dev/video1 -u 1 -f width=720,height=480 -p 6

Thanks for writing this guide as well as the more detailed one at:
http://www.bitbenderforums.com/vb22/showthread.php?postid=367509
Unfortunately after 1 weekend and serveral different approaches, I still can't get this to work.

My system:
Athlon 2100
512 RAM
Haupauge PVR 500 (cx23416 chipset)
Radeon 7000 video card
I tried both of Ralphs guides to the letter, twice over using current KnoppMyth R5A15.1 and once trying R5A12, just to be anal about it.
Hopefully someone does an even more dumbed down guide, with more up to date files.
Sorry if it sounds like I'm complaining, I'm just trying to give you an idea at what a complete Linux noob (me) sees in this guide. If you can help me, great!

Here's the problems I had with this guide:

ralpha6 wrote:
Install Knoppmyth R5A12 following directions here: http://www.mysettopbox.tv/doc.html


It's up to R5A15.1 now, so a the screen shots in the other guide don't look the same in the "Input connections" screen.

Quote:
Downlad latest drivers here: http://www.ivtv.tv/releases/ivtv-0.3/
(I used ivtv-0.3.2r.tgz but also had it working with 0.3.2q)


The latest version is here that is supposed to work with the PVR 500, it's the "Unstable (but suprisingly stable)" release:
http://www.ivtv.tv/releases/ivtv-0.3/ivtv-0.3.4f.tgz

Quote:
Code:
mkdir /lib/modules/old
mv /lib/modules/2.6.9-chw-4/extra/msp3400.ko /lib/modules/old

(not sure if this is needed or not, but I wanted to make sure the correct msp3400.ko was being used)


In R5A15.1 the directory is /lib/modules/2.6.11.7-chw-4 and both guides are confusing now because the directory structure has changed.

Quote:
Note: if you followed the Pamphlet of Knoppmyth howto then you'll already have unpacked the kernel source tarball in /usr/src, which is needed before the next step.


I read the pamplet at http://www.mysettopbox.tv/doc.html and didn't see where it stated anything about this.

Quote:
Unpack ivtv tarball
Code:
cd ivtv-0.3.2r/driver
make
make install
cd ../utils
make
make install



Using his other guide I did get this far and when using the "make" command it said "no such directory"

Quote:
Download firmware:
Code:
cd ivtv-0.3.2r/utils
wget ftp://ftp.shspvr.com/download/wintv-pvr_250-350/win9x-2k-xp_mpeg_wdm_drv/pvr48wdm_1.8.22037.exe
./ivtvfwextract.pl pvr48wdm_1.8.22037.exe

This replaces ivtv-fw-dec.bin and ivtv-fw-enc.bin in /lib/modules


The newest one is:
wget ftp://ftp.shspvr.com/download/wintv-pvr ... .22280.exe

However, I don't understand why we use this directory instead of ftp://ftp.shspvr.com/download/wintv-pvr_150-500/ ????????

Quote:
mount the driver cd that came with the pvr 500 to /cdrom
mount /dev/hdx /cdrom (replace x with your current device)
Code:
cp /cdrom/WinTV-PVR-150500MCE_2.0.18.22316_WHQL_signed/HcwMakoA.ROM /lib/modules



The CD that came with my PVR 500 is Version 2.6 (printed on the CD) and the directory looks like this:

cp /cdrom/WinTV-PVR-150500MCE_2_0_30_23074_WHQL/HcwMakoA.ROM /lib/modules

Quote:
Reboot and enjoy!
Hope this helps!
Ralph


It all helps, but I'm just a dunce. I know how to follow directions and use VI editor when I have to... but I suck at Linux. :P

If I can help in any way let me know, I'd like to get this card working in not only my own system, but contribute in making an up-to-date Knoppmyth/PVR-500 "guide for dummies"
I think this combination will probably become very popular for those starting out with their first Mythbox.

Wow! Not only do I not know Linux all that well, but apparently I don't know how to get responses. Hmm... maybe too much info....

Well, since my last post I have been able to follow the guide without trouble, and have repeated the complete install about 4 times. (Using the guide, the latest release of Knopmyth, IVTV driver, hauppauge driver, and Hauppauge CD driver. It still doesn't work, however, I think I may know why.

So, here's a new simpler question (please someone can give me some insight):

The dmesg | grep tuner command's output show the tuners as type "0" (zero)
I know it should be saying somthing like type "57", but for some reason it's not comming up. Why?

Because it's not autodetecting the version of the PVR-500 that you have. Is it a newer revision? I've seen other people report this, so perhaps a search of the forum for "PVR" and "500" requiring both terms will turn up the relevant posts?

This is still REALLY bleeding edge hardware, and as a result, shocking as the concept may be, possibly not easiest thing for anyone to install, let alone a newbie... ;-) So, for your first skydiving experiance you chose a minumum altitude jump on a pitchblack moonless night into a mine field carpeted with razor sharp 3 foot long steel spikes. ;-) Yeehaa!

Hi,
I have a pvr500 and i live in PAL country (Italy)
I follow every step you advice, but i cannot get audio to work with tuner.
I tried ivtv drivers from 0.3.2 to 0.3.4o, but nothing changes.
I test it within e outhere mythtv, but i got same results.
Video is good, but no audio.
I tried to use composite-in and, strange thing, if i switch to input "-p 3", video and audio works good! (only for composite)
When i switch to tuner (-p 6), i get every channel with no audio.
Do I have to force to change the tuner by "modprobe ivtv tuner=XX", or the autoprobe is right choise? (i suppose i have not audio for this...)
I tried to pass audiofmt=1 (and 2) to cx25840, but it's the same thing...

Here is my ivtv related log:

Thank you for the guides Ralpha... They're really helpful.

I have some few questions, though:

I've followed the guide and all the answers, but I'm getting nothing but static with a coloured bar at the buttom. Theres definately something going on behind it - you can see the "noise" change and sometimes the picture goes black as between clips

I'm from DK, where we use the PAL system. I've changed to PAL in the ivtv-script, and 720 x 576 in ivtv_params.

I have a pvr-150MCE. I thought it was a type 39 tuner, but /var/log/messages shows type 4, type 57 and type 39. Is that because I've changed it???
When the system boots it shows the pvr as CX23416 and type 58 - I'm really confused.

Am I supposed to change to CX23416 instead of the other CX values?

I hope someone has some suggestions - and nows something about PAL systems...

I resolved!
I had to pass options to cx25840 (and put it before ivtv in /etc/modules)
cx25840 audiofmt=0x04

I've given up on knoppmyth for now, I'll see how the next version (22 soon as we can start using it again?) does. For now I'm plugging away with GB-PVR but I hate running windows on my PVR.
