WinTV Nova S - won't tune

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is any special configuration required to get the
Hauppauge WInTv Nova S plus to work? On my machine the card is found and all the
right modules seem to be loaded but it won't tune, using mythtv or Stephen W's
dvbtune script. There shouldn't be anything wrong with the dish or cable because
a freeview receiver and the other card I have in the machine both work OK[1].

The machine is running Mythbuntu 12.04 with kernel 3.2.0-26.

Ideas?

Glenn

[1] actually the other card (TeVii s480) doesn't quite work OK, which is why I
bought the second card, but it does tune. Only one of the tuners works reliably,
the other often fails to start or tune or record. I found some references to
others having the same problem.

A few things that could cause the problem, you don't give much details so
will give you a quick run-down with the risk of suggesting things you have
already tried or done.

I assume you have downloaded the Nova-S firmware from the net somewhere and
put it in the firmware folder (from memoy /lib/firmware)? These generally
don't come with the distros as it's Haupauge propriatry. Maybe different
with Mythbuntu though.

Do you split the coax? Remember that this will affect the signal strenght.
If in doubt unplug from your old card and just plug it in to the Nova-S.

I've spent hours with this card before until I realised I simply did not
have the right amount of 0's at the end of one of the frequencies. Easy to
miss as there are so many.

What is not working with the other card? If it's reception issues, it might
still be the dish being misaligned or something in front of it. The TeVII
card might just pick up the signal, and the Nova-S might just not although
I would not expect this. Settop boxes seem to be able to work with less
signal strenght somehow...

Does dmesg list the card als installed? anything in /var/log/messages or
myth's logs?

NO NO NO NO NO!!!!

Turn off the computer before plugging aerials/dishes!

I've fried a loop port on a tevii by hot plugging it while the 18V was
live to power the LNB.


Its not current limited, so its not like ethernet or RF or composite where
you can freely hotplug.

I didn't find any reference to firmware needed for this card. Does it require that?

Yes, it is split, and also looped from the setop box. I figured that since the
TeVii card can tune then the signal would be strong enough, but I suppose I
should try without anything else on the cable.

I'm assuming that the tuning parameters are the same for both cards.

The issue with the TeVii S480 is that the second tuner "crashes" when you try to
use it simultaneously with the first one. Someone described a similar issue
somewhere in this thread (forum is in German):
<http://www.vdr-portal.de/board16-video-disk-recorder/board85-hdtv-dvb-s2/102390-tevii-s480-dual-sat-pcie-installation-und-technische-infos>

Also using the remote causes the driver to stop working after a few keypresses.

Yes, dmesg shows that all the appropriate modules are being loaded.

Thanks for your help, I'll try those things above and have closer look at the logs.

I tried the card on a Windows XP box using the Hauppauge software and it found
all the channels and I was able to watch TV, so that mostly rules out the
hardware as the issue. Not completely, since it was a different machine.

The output from dmesg is this:

I don't see any error messages in any of the logs: syslog, kern.log, dmesg, from

me fiddling about with different parameters.

Have you seen this kernel problem?

http://www.whizzy.org/category/tv/
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9476

It looks like a possible explanation.

I have that card, actually two of them, and they work perfectly with a
standard build. -- nothing special to configure at all these days.
However, I have found some cards to be broken right out of the box. I
went through four cards to find two that worked. -so, failing all else -
find your receipt and get a replacement.

Hi Vance,

Would that still be the case if the card works fine in Windows?

Hi Stephen,

It looks like that could be the problem. From bug 9476:

My card is the 92001 revision, bugger!

Who can say. I unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) never had a
windows machine to test on. I got those cards specifically for Linux
support, and it didn't function. Looking back now, it may well have
been some specific version difference.

I applied the patch supplied in that bug report but it still doesn't work. Have
contacted Hauppauge to see if they can give me the info required so that I can
fix the driver.

Also discovered that my splitter is dodgy, which is why the second tuner on my
TeVii s480 doesn't work properly.
