I've been trying to make the OnAir creator work. So far it hasn't been
easy but I'm making some progress. Pvrusb2 told me in the log file that
a firmware file was missing, so I went looking for it by name. After
a convoluted procedure extracting windows-centric files and renaming the
proper one to v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw I put it in /lib/modules and did away with
the missing firware message. Dvbusb2 seems to recognize the device ok.
In fact it seems to create
And I also see /dev/video0
But what do those devices represent? Is /dev/video0 the analog tuner?
is /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 the digital tuner? What are the others?
I have been trying to configure mythtv but have no idea what to tell it
about this device. The mythtv docs say that if you have a card with 2
tuners, define it as a DVB. But, mythtv-setup identifies it correcly
(by name) as an analog card /dev/video0, if I set it up as a DVB it claims
it is a DVICO or Air2PC or... It does not seem to know about the /dev/dvb
devices. Do I need to configure the OnAir Creator as 1 or 2 devices?
Can someone tell me a quick and easy way to test the device? maybe with
mplayer? I have an analog camera connected to the composite input, so
even if I don't get any channels with the rabbit ears and loop antenna,
that should work as a test.
I have posted the higher level questions to the mythtv mailing list, but
no answers yet. Any hints would be welcome.
