Hauppauge Wintv NOVA-T-USB2 working in LE9.2?

  • I've got a Hauppauge Wintv NOVA-T-USB2 and wanted to try and get it up and running in TvHeadend (4.3)


    I've enabled both the "DVB drivers for TBS" and "DVB drivers from the latest kernel" that are preinstalled in LE9.2, both enabled simultaneously now, but initially just the latest-kernal enabled.


    Dmesg:


    Lsusb:

    Anyone see what I'm failing to see?

    • Official Post

    pls use the "driver addon" and not activate the addons itself - currently you have 2 addons activated and this will not work properly

    the dvb-latest addon should do it for that stick, if not just post an dmesg again (dmesg | paste)

  • That was very helpful and much appreciated. Was foolish of me to not recall that program-addon. Thank you.


    I disabled both "DVB drivers for TBS" and "DVB drivers from the latest kernel" to create an initial-state.


    I ran the LibreELEC-Module-Drivers program-addon, selected "DVB drivers from the latest kernel" and rebooted.


    I'm presuming it would appear in my tvheadend tv-adaptors tab within dvb-input's configuration, or in the start-up wizard tune-and-network page but i only see greyed-out IPTV in there.


    dmesg: http://ix.io/2aJV

    lsusb: http://ix.io/2aJW


    there is no /dev/dvb .


    (I have tried the other 2x options of driver modules subsequently (LE-default and TBS) with no apparent tv-tuner recognised in tv-headend. my method of verifying correctness like this might be incorrect.


    You help is very much appreciated

    it looks half fine at dmesg, not sure whats wrong



    try to remove the stick and reboot

    wait some seconds after reboot (10-20) and then plug the stick again to the system

    wait ~10sec and post an dmesg | paste again


    So we get it more clear what happens here, DVB-Latest or Standard should do it, likely.

  • Doing the above with the previously described set up (using dvb-latest)

    Dmesg http://ix.io/2aMb

    Lsusb: Bus 001 Device 003: ID 2040:9300 Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T USB2 (cold)

    Lsmod: http://ix.io/2aMc

    No /dev/dvb

    Nothing in TvHeadend (4.2 this time, LE version) Config -> Dvb Inputs -> Tv Adaptors

    looks very strange

    usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_nova_t_usb2

    afterwards it just stop


    there should be some line

    dvb-usb: Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2 successfully initialized and connected



    so I guess its not directly related to the dvb drivers (standard should be good enough)


    Pls try disconnect, reboot, attach to different usb port (USB2/USB3) and have a look at the demesg if more output is generated

    If you use some USB hub etc pls remove and directly attach it.

  • Detached device, that was connected directly via usb, rebooted, waited for kodi to launch, then directly connected to different untouched usb port and here is the dmesg after that: http://ix.io/2aP8


    Set up remains the same as above; TvHeadend 4.2, dvb-latest chosen via LibreELEC-Module-Dirvers program-addon on LE9.2.0


    Lsusb: Bus 001 Device 003: ID 2040:9300 Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T USB2 (cold)

    Lsmod: http://ix.io/2aP9

  • I really appreciate your help. I might try another stick, maybe dual tuner with dvbt2, but that won't be for a while.


    Incidentally, for anyone using this thread, I followed the thread in the previous post and changed cmdline.txt from

    Code
    boot=UUID=0309-2816 disk=UUID=cde62edc-4372-409a-a45e-3ce8ca97d0d8 quiet 

    to

    Code
    boot=UUID=0309-2816 disk=UUID=cde62edc-4372-409a-a45e-3ce8ca97d0d8 quiet dwc_otg.fiq_enable=0 dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=0 dwc_otg.nak_holdoff=0

    Still no tv-adapter shown in tvheadend, neither does /dev/dvb exist on this Pi4.

    Dmesg: http://ix.io/2aUQ

    Lsmod: http://ix.io/2aUR

  • It's a crappy old usb thing i had lying around so no big deal.


    I really like the idea of ditching the dvb-s box and using the pi4 and some magnetic storage. Maybe recommend a decent dual-tunar dvd-t2 card. :D


    I would use the official tv-hat but I have the ice-cooler which means the io is out of use.


    You've been more helpful than you know.

  • In case you are still interested, I got mine working right. The issue is the default firmware. You have to override it and put a correct version (I am ready to send you mine) into /storage/.config/firmware/ as explained here [Add a firmware to LibreELEC [LibreELEC.wiki]](Add a firmware to LibreELEC [LibreELEC.wiki]) . Then lsusb gives after restart


    Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T USB2 (warm)


    and I confirm it does work properly with TvHeadend.

  • niels a question did you build your Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T USB2 firmware to the latest, using linux?

    Then you replaced the same one in LibreELEC?

    Thank you.

    CvH If this is what it did and what path do I have to follow with the TBS5520SE?

    In constructions: Index of / It does not have crazycat drivers.

    It is useless knowledge if not shared the world.

  • erbas I am using a firmware that I know was working some years ago (at least five years, maybe ten years back). I forgot its origin. I can of course send it to you. Do you think it is better to use the latest version ?

    thank you friend, for your generosity.

    you gave a direction!

    use TBS5520SE.

    Thank you
