From a bit of a bloated installation, reinstalled using the minime version and brought everything up-to-date.
Hauppauge PVR150 (also applies to a WinTV-PVR USB2 device)
I have not needed to use for a while but it is nice to know that my old Hauppauge PVR150 PCI card works.
No joy at all, I think it did work with PCLOS in the past, certainly still works with windoze and debian.
Some info: from lspci
01:06.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC16 (CX23416) Video Decoder (rev 01)
ivtv 130557 0
cx2341x 15512 1 ivtv
i2c_algo_bit 4560 1 ivtv
v4l2_common 4594 5 wm8775,tuner,cx25840,ivtv,cx2341x
videodev 68676 6 wm8775,tuner,cx25840,ivtv,cx2341x,v4l2_common
Looks like it should work but does not.
The card is not seen by either v4l2-ctl or QTV4L2 test utility.
[rich@localhost ~]$ v4l2-ctl -info
Failed to open /dev/video0: No such device or address
looking in dev I also have a video24 and a video32. What are they for? - they do not connect either.
If/when it does work, I capture via composite using VLC (now 2.0.5). VLC in PCLOS no longer has a PVR setting, it seems replaced by "JACK Audio Connection Kit". The PVR setting still exists in VLC 2.0.4 (debian). Is this change universal to VLC or peculiar to PCLOS? The PVR setting is the correct capture for the Hauppauge.
As a note I have an old usb (digitus) dongle that works with the VLC l4v2 option but that captures to (enormous) avi files (like going back 15 years to Premiere v5). I much prefer the mpeg2 that I get from the hardware hauppauge encoder.
Not working is not a problem, just an annoyance, I have other options... but...
It would be nice to see it working.
Any help gratefully received.
