So when I do:

modprobe em28xx device_mode=1 i2c_scan=1

I get:

Dec  3 22:29:59 cheren kernel: [17179957.448000] em28xx #0: found i2c device @ 0x1c [???]
Dec  3 22:29:59 cheren kernel: [17179957.472000] em28xx #0: found i2c device @ 0xa0 [eeprom]
Dec  3 22:29:59 cheren kernel: [17179957.476000] em28xx #0: found i2c device @ 0xc2 [tuner (analog)]

What is at 0x1c? Would this be the DVB demodulator? In analog mode I get:

Dec  3 22:37:30 cheren kernel: [17180407.836000] em28xx #0: found i2c device @ 0xa0 [eeprom]

yes it's the ATSC demod in your case. Only one chip can be visible at a time so first we focussed on NTSC, next step os ATSC.


Notes on audio

Audio has a clicking sound every 256ms(I measured it) with varying amplitude. I just did this to get a sample:

sox -r 48000 -w -c 2 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t wav /tmp/test.wav

Sample here: [[1]]

this is a known issue I already had it work properly a longer time ago but since then many things changed and I'm not able to test it till christmas.


Odd connector??

I recently got one of these "Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick"'s and I was wondering- is the connector on the side {that connects to s-video, stereo audio, and composite video} even a standard connector? If so, what's the pinout? [I know at least one of you peeps is a hardware hacker, surely...] My mom has a digital camera that uses an almost identical, if not exactly identical connector to connect to USB with one cable, but to connect to stereo audio and composite video with another cable, and I was wondering if these cables/devices would work together...?

Help installing

Can anybody help me out with my installation? I've tried both the latest ~mrec on mercurial version and the standard v4l-dvb newest mercurial version and I'm not really sure what's going on. I have V4L and DVB turned off in my kernel config and right now I have the mrec. I've been following but when I run modprobe em28xx, I get the following:

WARNING: Error inserting tveeprom (/lib/modules/2.6.24-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/media/video/tveeprom.ko): Invalid module format

Am I missing something for my kernel config?

PS I also just tried the v4l-dvb-experimental branch as suggested in various places and I get the same problems. Also tried reenabling v4l and dvb in my kernel as modules and then doing make install with the mercurial branch and that didn't change anything.

Any ideas?

Edit: Problem solved, I seem to have forgotten to install my new kernel after I compiled it. Sorry!

Firmware problems in Fedora 10

I have previously successfully installed the firmware under Acer Linpus following the directions. But in Fedora 10 there doesn't seem to be a "linux/Documentation/video4linux" folder or an "" script. So I'm rather stuck.

Any ideas?

Firmware Problems Ubuntu 9.10 2.6.31-17-generic i686-64 bit

Trying to install firmware for Pinnacle 800e 2304:0227. Works fine in the 32 bit version. No luck for this one though. I am by no means an expert but will provide any info i can. Here's a link to my DMESG [[2]]

djh - Try the following tree and see if it helps:

There is no 64-bit specific firmware. The same firmware is used in both cases.

Also, you really shouldn't be asking questions like this in the wiki. Please post such questions to the linux-media mailing list.
