Vdr don’t allocate a device if its device is locked or busy

Oggetto: [linux-dvb] Multi Frontend Drivers for HVR4000 (And others)

 

I've been playing with the latest http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/ drivers
(Multi frontend Support) for the HVR4000
(http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/v4l-dvb-hg-mfe-latest.diff)
<http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/v4l-dvb-hg-mfe-latest.diff)%20and>  and they
seem to work well.  I can use either DVB-S or DVB-T (via mythtv and swap
easily between them) (butt not use them at the same time which is just a
limitation of the device)

 

But a couple of problems.

Not many programs support the multifrontend as of yet. Like the biggest one
Mythtv :-)

You have to do the below so it sees two cards

 

mkdir /dev/dvb/adapter1

ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0

ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter1/net1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/net0

ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr0

ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter1/demux1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/demux0

 

Analog TV Tuning Stops working after you 1st use the DVB-T or DVB-S device

 

a few i2c errors when it first boots up.

 

tda9887 2-0043: i2c i/o error: rc == -121 (should be 4)
DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[0])
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Conexant CX24116/CX24118)...
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Conexant CX22702 DVB-T)...

it says registering frontend 0 both times, but thats just cosmetic and
should easily be fixed
