[linux-dvb] Hauppauge dec2540-t

Hello,

Has anyone been able to get this device working under linux ?

I am have some trouble with it.
When I switch the device on, the correct modules get loaded (ttusb_dec 
and ttusbdecfe), firmware gets loaded and I do not get any weird 
messages, so far so good. dmesg gives me:
[74969.803277] DVB: registering new adapter (DEC2540-t)
[74969.803409] DVB: registering frontend 0 (TechnoTrend/Hauppauge 
DEC2000-t Frontend)...

However when I run tzap, I get lines like this:
status 00 | signal 0001 | snr 0000 | ber b7f8a858 | unc b7f8ab38 |
status 1f | signal 0001 | snr 0000 | ber b7f8a858 | unc b7f8ab38 | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 0001 | snr 0000 | ber b7f8a858 | unc b7f8ab38 | 
FE_HAS_LOCK

The signal-field always reads 0001 and snr is always 0000. I would 
expect a much higher value for signal then 0001 isn't it ?
I can get a channel list, so part of the driver must be working, but 
mplayer does not work.

I use: mplayer dvb://"Nederland 1" -vo x11

The error message that mplayer gives me is:
....
Playing dvb://Nederland 1.
dvb_tune Freq: 618000000
ERROR IN SETTING DMX_FILTER 7011 for fd 4: ERRNO: 38ERROR, COULDN'T SET 
CHANNEL  0: Failed to open dvb://Nederland 1.

I am using MPlayer 2:1.0~rc1-0ubuntu9.1 on ubuntu feisty (kernel 
2.6.20), and with the latest v4l-dvb modules.

Any help is appreciated.

Kees Stoop.
