set up wintv hvr 1250 - tvheadend not seeing tuner

  • I searched the forum and saw one thread that indicated the tuner itself was supported, but not the IR function. that's fine, but I'm not sure how to get the OS to even see the tuner. I didn't find anything in dmesg indicating the drivers were loaded or that the device was recognized, and a modprobe shows the module I saw mentioned in the other thread isn't being used:


    media:~ # lsmod

    Module Size Used by

    ir_kbd_i2c 24576 0

    rc_hauppauge 16384 0

    cx23885 176128 0

    ...


    I'm using tvheadend, and in configuration > dvb inputs, the 'tv adapters' folder is empty. how do I get it to recognize my tuner?


    media:~ # dmesg | paste

    http://ix.io/2fD1

    media:~ # ls /dev/dvb | paste

    ls: /dev/dvb: No such file or directory

    media:~ # ls /dev/ | paste

    http://ix.io/2fD2


    I tried every driver option available in libreelec module drivers > choose dvb driver module, no change.


    if it turns out that the tuner I got isn't supported, what's the community recommendation for a well-supported PCIE tuner that won't require messing around with drivers and stuff to get it to show up in tvheadend? one important restriction is that the machine I'm using is a desktop PC set up inside a 2u server case, so whatever card I pick needs to have a low profile bracket.

  • There is no PCI Mutimedia Controller device class 0x0400 or 0x0480 visible in dmesg. Please verify with lspci.


    Is the card correctly inserted in the slot?

  • I moved it to a different slot and made sure it was firmly emplaced, no change in dmesg and I dont see anything in lspci either:

    bad card maybe? any recs for alternatives that don't make you go on a driver odyssey to get them set up?
