Hi Everyone, 

 

                Ok I've recently decided to start seeing if I can figure out
the issue with the Analouge, on this card, first my normal dmesg.

As you can see I have two cards. First thing I have done is unload all the
tuner drivers, using make unload. Then reloaded the 1800 drivers via. 

 

modprobe cx25840 debug=1

modprobe cx23885 debug=1

 

Then tried a cat /dev/video1 > test.mpg. This resulted in nothing but a
black empty video. Weird thing is the dmesg output started outputting crazy
erros. Below:

There were enough of these errors to fill up the scroll back buffer on
putty. 

 

I was wondering where I would go from here to try to help the developer's
figure out the issues with this card. I've been diving through the code, but
my C/C++ is 10 years rusty so it's slow going. 

 

Oh, and the drivers were pulled down as most recent an hour ago. 

 

Anyone that can point me in the right direction, I would appreciated it, I
have no problem getting my hands "dirty". 

 

Thanks.

Ok to reply to my post. 

 

I reloaded the dirvers with debug=1 again. And I am getting this in dmesg. 

..

defaulting to 60

 

Don't know if the above is relivent

I really hope to get analogue resovled for this card..there are a lot of
owners of this card, that can't use them for the purpose they bought them..

 

I.E. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=785476 ten page topic begging
for support of this card. 

 

Recently I've had to tell people asking for opinion's of the HVR-1800 to go
with a different option since they need it for analogue support. Sorry for
being presistiant but I read in another email on the mailing list, that
presitiance helps. I've already offered several times that I'll help if
someone can point me in the right direction..

 

Keep up the good work.

 

Thanks

Dustin
