I purchased a WinTV PVR Usb2 model 941 from Circuit City last week but
to date I've had little success getting it to work under linux.
Couple of things I've noted :
1) The usb device code is 2040:2400 , not the 2040:2900 listed in the code.
The code in pvrusb2-mci-20060209 compiled cleanly (good work Mike !)
plugging in the pvr did nothing on Ubuntu, Debian or Mandrake systems.
I found the usb id difference, changed pvrusb2-main.c to reflect
could now hotplug the pvr.
Hotplug appears to work...but only if the pvr was previously setup in
otherwise I get 'device is hung....need to power cycle" message in
a power cycle only gives me the same message again.
2) A previous init in WinXp, followed by boot to Debian gives me what looks
clean initialize of the pvr, a /dev/video0 device and a
But a " cat /dev/video0 > test.mpg " only gives me an emply test.mpg
"Warning ... no decoder present " message in syslog.
I wonder if Hauppauge has gone through a revision change on these units,
reflected in the
usb id change ?
I'm running a fresh install of Debian 'etch' (although my results are the
same with Ubuntu Dapper),
with the pvrusb2-mci-20060209 code release.
I welcome any suggestions to get this pvr working, and wanted to send many
Mike Isely for his work on this driver.
