DCR-2650 setup

I'm having some problems getting the DCR-2650 setup on MythDora
(Fedora 12). It does not show up in mythtvsetup or have an ip
address.

In theory I've updated to .25 on MythDora ok. I tried the .24 method
with the file:/ and extra lineup, but it still does not show up.

dmesg|grep 1-6
usb 1-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
usb 1-6: New USB device found, idVendor=2040, idProduct=e300
usb 1-6: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 1-6: Product: Hauppauge OpenCable Receiver
usb 1-6: Manufacturer: Hauppauge
usb 1-6: SerialNumber: 20126686
usb 1-6: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

Sep 12 19:07:28 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: new high speed USB device

Sep 12 19:07:28 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: New USB device found,

Sep 12 19:07:28 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: New USB device strings:

Sep 12 19:07:28 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: Product: Hauppauge OpenCable Receiver
Sep 12 19:07:28 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: Manufacturer: Hauppauge
Sep 12 19:07:28 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: SerialNumber: 20126686
Sep 12 19:07:28 localhost kernel: usb 1-6: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

ifconfig -a

eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0D:FE:7E:4C:D1
BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

So, I created an ifcfg-eth1 file:

cat ifcfg-eth1
DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=192.168.2.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
TYPE=Ethernet
HWADDR=00:0D:FE:7E:4C:D1
IPV6INIT=no
USERCTL=no

I can ping the ip ok.

In mythtvsetup, I selected the HD Home Home Run and manually entered
the above ip and set tuner 1. Is that correct? Is there anything
else I am missing or can test with before I attempt to call
Cablevision?

If you put that IP in a browser on your computer you should get the Diag
menu which has activation stats and other stuff.
My config for eth1 is dhcp and i get a different vlan than yours but that
might not matter.

netstat -an|grep 192.168.2
udp 0 0 192.168.2.2:123 0.0.0.0:*
udp 0 0 192.168.2.2:137 0.0.0.0:*
udp 0 0 192.168.2.2:138 0.0.0.0:*

none of these work in a browser.

Re: DCR-2650 setup [In reply to]

I switched my ifcfg-eth1 to dhcp:

DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
HWADDR=00:0D:FE:7E:4C:D1
IPV6INIT=no
USERCTL=no

I have rebooted and then was able to see and configure them in
mythtvsetup. I am actually able to watch some lower channels now
(still have to call cable company).
