Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and HVR1250

Thanks to all that replied and tried to help. I am finally watching TV! 2nd answer is what I followed htt...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and HVR1250

It's seeming as though I need to install the firmware. I tried following one set of instructions but it did not install. I am not sure if that is because I am on 14.04 or some other reason. Here is the output from this command. micah@micah-HTPC:~$ dmesg | grep saa7164 [ 8.388486] saa7164 driver load...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and HVR1250

I bought and installed the hvr-2250. I obviously have no clue what I am doing. I select dvb or any of the other cards and they all say failed to open. I am assuming I need to enter something where is says dvb source/video source. The problem is I have no idea what to enter. Could someone please walk...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and HVR1250

Yes, as far as I know we only have digital broadcasts. So I really don't know what card would be good to go with. The 1200 seems ok. Does Hauppauge sell a dual digital tuner that works with Linux?

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to get mythtv working on Mint 16 &17

I had a similar issue with Ubuntu. It would ask for the country then on the next page it said it could not connect to the database. I ended up reinstalling mysql and using "mythtv" for the password on that and it worked. Here is a link to the post I made, there is also a link posted in the answer th...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and HVR1250

Looks like you are correct blm-ubunet. It is in fact a 1265. I guess I need to try to return this one. Which card would you recommend instead so I do not have these issues?

Re: MythTV and HVR-1600 card

Thanks for the info buschbarber. Rwagner: I bought this card because it supposedly works well with Linux but once again I am having trouble. I am only using it on OTA channels which I believe are all digital correct?

Re: MythTV and HVR-1600 card

Also a question about your setup. I am tring to configure mythtv with a HVR1250 but I am having similar problems as you. I do not see a video0 file under dev and when I enter that as a source it fails to open the card. I am assuming that is where the driver is located for the card? If so where shoul...

I read the same info that the hvr1250 should be supported but I can't get it to work. Can you give me any help on setting up MythTV with this tuner card?

Ubuntu 14.04 and HVR1250 and HVR2250

I am trying to get MythTV setup with this card but I am not having any luck. I selected DVB on the capture card screen but nothing shows up under video source. I noticed other setups showed it under /dev/dvb but I checked "ls" in terminal and there is no dvb under dev so I thought maybe the driver i...
