I want to inform about my experience with the ivtv 0.6.2 release. I use
Fedora Core 5 (64 bit version) which I have setup according to Jarod Wilsons
howto. I use the rpm package from Axel Thim. My capture card is a one year
old PVR-350 (PAL version). I use this machine as an mythtbackend and I use
xbmcmythtv on my xbox as a mythfrontend.
For one month since I upgraded the ivtv driver from ivtv 0.6.1 to 0.6.2 on
my Mythtv backend pc using yum install ivtv. Everything was working ok for
me before I do this. After the upgrade the playing of schedule recordings
was working, but I could not change channels in Live TV in mythfrontend or
in xbmcmyth. Everything was freezing and I must shutdown the mythtbackend
pc. When this happens the mythfrontend logs "select timeout - ivtv driver
has stopped responding" . The ivtv dmesg don't have any errors in it. Every
module loads ok before this happens.
I know this is a problem with the ivtv 0.6.2 driver because other people
have this problem as I can read from ivtv mailinglists.
. I have tried the newest 0.6.2 cvs (010606), ivtv 0.7 rpm package, using
the correct firmware (http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/Firmware), tried to
upgrade to the mythtv 0.19.1 (bugfix release) without luck.
And I have changed the tuner input from tuner 0 to tuner 1 in mythtv-setup.
>From ivtv 0.6.2 readme.txt
"NOTE 3: The names of the inputs have changed to correspond with the names
as are used by the video4linux subsystem. This means that MythTV users
haveto setup their inputs again. In particular 'Tuner 0' is now 'Tuner 1'."
And I have tried reinstalling my mythbackend without any luck. And I get the
same problem again because yum install the ivtv 0.6.2 version because this
is the stable version on Axel Thimm rpm site
My suggestion for people who have this problem is to downgrade to ivtv 0.6.1.
This fixed all my problems with LiveTV channel change freeze. I am a newbee
with Linux so I don't know if you can downgrade ivtv package with yum or
smart to ivtv 0.6.1, but I compile the ivtv driver on my own.
I going to post this mail to ivtv-users at ivtvdriver.org and to mythtv-users
mailing list. I hope this ivtv issue could be resolved because it has been a
pain to find a solution for my Live TV channel channel problems
Hope this helps for someone...
