Local HD channels

Setting up a channel table can be a bit of a bear when you are using the HD-3000 in DVB mode. As such there have been a few folks that I work with and around here that are interested in a dump of my channels table. Obviously this is only useful for people in the Portland, OR area, but here it is: channel.sql

cx88_dvb fun

I use MythTV (atrpms) with the pcHDTV HD-3000 card. I downloaded the 2.0 driver and compiled, and, as per the instructions, attempted to modprobe the cx88_dvb driver. I kept getting kernal errors, module mis-match errors, and on and on. Finally, after a few re-boots, rearranging of modules, etc… I got it to work. The unfortunate thing is that I really have no idea what I did, so writing up a how-to would be impossible.

The along comes a friend of mine and he has the same exact problems. After futzing with his system for two hours, I suggested that we get my pcHDTV bits, and simply do a ‘make install’, then modprobe cx88_dvb. Guess what. It worked. So, I have no idea what magic exists inside my driver bits, but here they are for anybody else who wants to try. Simply extract the tar file to a directory and (as root) type make install then modprobe cx88_dvb.

On another note, You need to make sure that your dvb device files are configured properly, and the permissions are correct. So I’m attaching my files in /etc/udev/rules.d/10-pchdtv.rules and /etc/udev/permissions.d/10-pchdtv.permissions

Hope this helps somebody

Update to 0.18

I’m looking forward to getting some time to update from 0.17 to 0.18 of MythTV. Chris Pinkham updated some mythtranscode bits to help us pcHDTV folks.
