[linux-dvb] Driver Help On DVICO FusionHDTV5 Lite

Thanks Michcael, that worked. Now I have the correct devices, and I can do 
channel scanning with mythtv-setup (also with atscscan), but the problem is 
when I use mythfilldatabas, it gave following message at the end:

2005-12-29 10:48:35.962 Connecting to backend server: 127.0.0.1:6543 (try 1 
of 5)
Connection timed out.
You probably should modify the Master Server settings
in the setup program and set the proper IP address.
error resceduling id -1 in ScheduledRecording::signalChange

But according to the instruction, I am supposed to run mythfilldatabase 
prior to mythbackend, right? I actually see some channel entries in mysql, 
but when I start  mythbackend, it says

2005-12-29 10:49:10.369 DVB#0 ERROR - Unable to find channel in database.
2005-12-29 10:49:10.369 DVB#0 ERROR - Failed to get channel options for 
channel 3.

And when I start mythfrontend, and start watching,  it says

2005-12-29 10:52:39.929 DVB#0 WARNING - No data from card in 1 second.
2005-12-29 10:52:39.995 Couldn't read data from the capture card in 15 
seconds. Stopping.

I tried using azap on the frequencies from the output of atscscan, but it 
says

video pid 0x0000, audio pid 0x0000
status 00 | signal 0000 | snr ffff | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 |

So I am not sure that if this is still a driver issue or something wrong the 
settings? Thanks

You should have:

/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0
/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0
/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
/dev/dvb/adapter0/net0

...if you don't, then please see:

I hope this helps,
