I have a shuttle sb61g2 with a Nova-T DVB-T PCI card
(the one with the grey remote) and an AVerMedia AverTV
DVB-T USB 2.0 (A800).
It looks like budget-ci.c module has problems similar
to the a800 with auto repeat. A colleague of mine made
some changes to the code to allow better handling
of the repeats and I've been manually applying his
changes each time I grab code from CVS.
I'm no driver coder so I don't fully understand what
his changes entail or whether they make sense for
all supported remotes, however it does make my
grey hauppauge remote work wonderfully well. His
method of selecting the keycodes was via a simple
hash define (might be better using a module parameter
IMHO). Anyway I just thought I'd send you the diffs
to let you see them. This is for my Hauppauage Nova-T
As I said, I also have a AVerMedia AverTV DVB-T
USB 2.0 (A800) so I'm looking forward to any fixes
for it's remote making their way into CVS.
The other thing I've noticed with my a800 is that
tzap works flawlessly with great quality, but
when I use it with MythTV 0.18.1 it often fails to
get FE_LOCK or the picture is very garbled. The
Nova-T using the same antenna and tzap has no
problems with either card.
Is there any reason tzap would work while MythTV
has issues ?
Any thoughts much appreciated.
