Puppy already contains most, but not all, DVB modules. This package provides the extra DVB modules, compatible with the kernel in Puppy vers 2.12 - 2.16.

They're at MU's site -
http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Multimedia/Mplayer-1.0rc1/IVTV+DVB-modules-k2.6.18.1.pet
Modules included -

ivtv
ivtv-fb
saa717x
video-buf-dvb
cx88-alsa
cx88-blackbird
cx88-dvb
cx88-vp3054-i2c
pvrusb2
saa7134-alsa
saa7134-dvb
isl6421

The package also provides the necessary firmware files for several different drivers, originally from http://dl.ivtvdriver.org/ivtv/firmware/
And the package also includes the MAKEDEV-DVB.sh script, to create the necessary device nodes for DVB devices.

Basic instructions are contained in the README file, which will automatically launch after the dotpet has installed.

EDIT: IVTV drivers for the Hauppauge "PVR" TV tuner cards, compatible with Puppy 2.17 are attached later in this thread.

The standard DVB kernel modules are now all included in Puppy 2.17 and 3.00.
So the only missing modules are the (third party) IVTV modules.
I now attach these.

Update October 7 2007
IVTV modules recompiled from patched source code from
http://linuxtv.org/hg/~hverkuil/v4l-dvb-xc/rev/7361b30f3e35
to support 3 additional cards:
Yuan PG600V2/GotView PCI DVD Lite
Club3D ZAP-TV1x01
AverTV MCE 116 Plus

Run "modinfo ivtv" to see supported cardtypes.

These packages include the necessary firmware for the IVTV modules, plus the IVTV utilities:
cx25840ctl
ivtv-mpegindex
ivtv-radio
ivtv-tune
ivtvctl
ivtvfbctl
ivtvplay
ps-analyzer
v4l2-ctl

Hi:
Thanks for the reply. After installing it, and modprobe ivtv, then
dmesg|grep ivtv, I get following messge.

ivtv: Unknown symbol i2c_bit_add_bus
ivtv: Unknown symbol cx2341x_ext_ctrls
ivtv: Unknown symbol v4l_compat_translate_ioctl

ivtv: Unknown symbol video_usercopy
ivtv: Unknown symbol tveeprom_hauppauge_analog
ivtv: Unknown symbol video_device_release
ivtv: Unknown symbol cx2341x_mpeg_ctrls

However, before I ask for more help, perhaps allow me to ask how to identify the card.

The card I have is in my HP computer model m260n. The only information on the card is:

Hauppauge
Wintv 48512 Rev I126

The message from Windows is:
Wintv PCI II, that's it.

HP web site does not provide further information.


I googled seached and found out some people said it's PVR 250, which use ivtv. So I can only assume this is what my card is.

Any help is appreciated.

Yes it appears to be a PVR250, but it may be an OEM version with the hardware ID disabled.
Try to specify the type (PVR250) when loading the module, like this -
Code:
modprobe ivtv cardtype 1

If no success, load all other modules the ivtv module depends on first -
Code:
modprobe v4l2-common
modprobe v4l1-compat
modprobe videodev
modprobe cx2341x
modprobe i2c-core
modprobe i2c-algo-bit
modprobe tveeprom
modprobe firmware_class
modprobe ivtv cardtype 1

Hi:
modprobe ivtv cardtype 1 doesn't work,
but load other modules first does work, however, there are still some error message, and I don't know what they mean, as shown on the last 5 lines above.
Thanks.

Just checking that you ran the "MAKEDEV-IVTV.sh" script. If not, your system will not have the necessary device nodes.

Otherwise, the initialisation looks good up to a certain point. But a Google search doesn't reveal an obvious solution. I suggest you submit your START INIT - END INIT information to the ivtv-users mailinglist -
http://ivtvdriver.org/mailman/listinfo/ivtv-users

Hi:

All the instructions you've mentioned have been followed, I still get the same error message. I will check that mailing list.

Thanks for your help.

Hi:
Thank you for the tips, I went to the mailing list and found out a clue, it's due to not enough memory. The test machine has only 128M RAM, I move it to another one which has 512MB RAM, then the error message goes away.

Would you mind tell me what is next step, I believe it's application layer. I try to get this video capture(from VCR) feature work in Linux.

Thanks.
Shenen

My IVTV package includes the "v4l2-ctl" utility. First you need to obtain information about your PVR250's inputs, using then "-I" parameter (that's uppercase i, not lowercase L) -
Code:
v4l2-ctl -I

I imagine the results should be something like "composite" and/or "S-video".
Then you need to set the input using the "-i" parameter:
Code:
v4l2-ctl -i composite

And you may also need to set the video standard: pal, ntsc, or secam with the "-s" parameter. Example -
Code:
v4l2-ctl -s pal

It should be possible (?) to see the video signal coming into your PVR250 with MPlayer. Get MPlayer here -
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Multimedia/Mplayer-1.0rc1/
Then run this command -
Code:
mplayer /dev/video0

Now to record the video signal -
Code:
cat /dev/video0 > test.mpg

This will produce an MPEG2 file that you can play with MPlayer ...
or you can use this MPEG2 file to author a DVD, using plinej's "pupdvdtool-0.8"

Thanks for the info, I tried it, and it works great. When Puppy 2.20 stable release is out, I will be waiting for your updated ivtv .pet file. I think 2.20 also upgraded the kernel.

Thanks.

Edited 9/19

I was having a major problem with a PVR150, but switched boxes and now I have it 90% working. My problem: I have no sound on my playback or files!

This seems a common complaint yet I have not seen a good FAQ to answer it. Any ideas anyone?

I am running pupply linux 2.14 and a Aver PVR150. I am using cardtype=16 and have no errors shown in dmesg. I am not sure if cardtype=16 is optimum, there seems to be no specific card type for the avermedia PVR150

I wonder if I need to load or initialize the sound drivers in the PVR150 or something like that. Surely there must be a setting for input volume etc.

I do have sound when using the TV tuner, just not for composite or S-video input. I have checked the sound inputs settings and they seem correct and they switch automtically when the input is switched.

I have used a video captrure card in the past without mpeg encoding so I am not completely new to all this.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks

Phil

Good idea, but I have tried that. I am spending a lot of compulsive time on this, still, so sorry for not telling you what I have done.

I have tried
setting inputs to all valid and invalid vlaues as you described
tried changing volume
tried muting and unmuting
changing to PAL etc
tried many options within ivtv-ctrl/v4l2-ctl etc
tried different card types in options, and different orders for modprobe

my dmesg shows:
ivtv: ==================== START INIT IVTV ====================
ivtv: version 0.10.1 (tagged release) loading
ivtv: Linux version: 2.6.18.1 mod_unload 486 gcc-3.4

ivtv0: Initialized GotView PCI DVD2 Deluxe, card #0
ivtv: ==================== END INIT IVTV ====================

I think the key is that this is a odd ball board and uses a wm8739.

I found this page which shows the same problem on the same card,
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/ivtv/devel/36205

the answer-er suggested a patched ivtv driver
http://linuxtv.org/hg/~hverkuil/v4l-dvb-xc/rev/7361b30f3e35

but I have never compiled on Puppy, and do not have that module installed, so I have been avoiding that.

I do have sound in tuner mode, so it could be worse, I just lose stereo and a bit of quality runing video through a modulator and then the tuner.

I think I read somewhere that v4l-dvb supports the wm8739 and that someone got the card to work video in (only), using ivtv-dvb (makes sense as the stream is very similar to dvb) any ideas how to do that though? I tried using dvb//:2@ch number, that does not work ( I have a DVB-S card intalled hence 2@)

Any ideas? Thanks for the reply.

PS

The release noted for the updates to ivtv (ithink he calls it a tree)I mentioned in the last post say :

- Split Club3D card from Yuan PG600-2, GotView PCI DVD Lite (different composite input)
- Add AVerTV MCE 116 Plus (M116) card
- Allow Xceive cards to be used without Xceive support
- Update Xceive support to latest userspace tuner (still not on by default,
pending inclusion of userspace tuner in the kernel).
- Use CONFIG_XC3028 rather than HAVE_XC3028: gentree.pl will remove them
automatically.

I think maybe the problem is that the cardtype=16 is very close to the card that I do have but does not quite behave exactly the same , and this could be the result. Goes to show trying ALL values of inoputs and outputs might get it towork. When I used cardtype=1 for example, Svideo and composite were swapped, so a wrong card might work with the wrong input values. I will try once more maybe.

Is there a simple way to change registers via I2C from the console? Although I would need to know what to change in the wm8739.

How simple is it to install the develoment/compile module and compile stuff like this?

Thanks again for the reply. It showed me I am not totally dumb.
