<br>here, I'm using the latest rc kernel and the patched firmware from the<br>wiki yet it still disconnects, a *lot* - typically after a couple of<br>hours and sometimes immediately on boot. I've removed it from my
<br>system for now and switched to a Nova-T. (Although only a single tuner<br>now.)<br><br>Someone on the IRC channel (forgot the alias, sorry!) suggested that<br>the developers are currently stumped. If this is the case would it
<br>helpful to any developers if they could have my card on a free loan<br>for a while to debug the issue?...<br><br>--<br>Paul Elliott (omahn)<br>Systems Engineer, Option-C Services<br><a onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)" href="mailto:email@example.com">
firstname.lastname@example.org</a><br></blockquote></div><br><br>I'm currently using a Nova-T 500 with no major issues. I'm running Gentoo 64 bits, kernel 2.6.23-r3 (lastest) and HG drivers (obtained last week, when I fully reinstalled the system). Previously I was using Sabayon 32 bits, same kernel, etc... and everything was also ok.
<br><br>I still suffer very ocasional disconnects, but they are really rare. I also sometimes get I2C errors in dmesg, but they don't seem to cause any issues.<br><br>I don't know what can be the reason of your problems. As far as I know, the disconnects are somehow related to bad receiving quality, which cause the firmware on the card to block. I'm not sure, though.
<br><br>The driver development for this card seems to be stopped, right now. Since last firmware update (1.10) ther has been no news.<br><br>Best regards, <br> Eduard<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
