Hi. I have very little experience in Linux and LinHes and I'm having some difficulty finding relevant information in the ample documentation available.

I've got a WinTV HVR 1110 tuner and LinHes R6.03 and I need to know how to make these work together. It seems like only the analog tuner shows up in MythTv.

Any ideas?

Quick google search I found this
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Haupp ... V-HVR-1110
and this
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Haup ... V-HVR-1110

Looks like the analog tuner already has the drivers baked into V4L but to get the digital side you are going to need to get your geek on and climb into the terminal a little.

Thanks, Mattbatt!

I've tried the stuff in the first link, but "modprobr saa7134-dvb" doesn't return anything and doesn't seem to create a /dev/dvb folder either.

I¨ll give the linuxmce link a try and see how that goes...

Well, that didn't do much better either.

Quote:
Kernel Configuration
This only needs to be done once (but it doesn't hurt to do more times):

create a config file to tell the kernel driver which card it actually is
remove any existing instances of saa7134_dvb from the modules list
add saa7134_dvb (again) to the list of modules to start at boot-time
restart the system
In other words:

sudo echo 'options saa7134 card=104' >/etc/modprobe.d/saa7134
sudo sed -e '/^[^#]*saa7134_dvb/d' -i /etc/modules
sudo echo 'saa7134_dvb' >>/etc/modules
sudo reboot


It fails on the second row (sudo sed), since /etc/modules doesn't exist at all. It feels like I need to do something *before* all the similar instructions and 'how-tos' I've found so far.

Basically, all I've done is make a bootable USB-stick with the Linhes R6.03 cd image using 'unetbootin'. This boots up nicely and teh Linhes installation goes of without any hiccups. Then in mythtv I do the General setup, and then the Tuner setup, where only the analog Tuner is listed under v4l.

Nothing strange there....or? Does it matter if I don't have te antenna connected to the tuner during installation?

Does this matter: "The WinTV-HVR-1120 needs kernel 2.6.31 as a minimum." The current kernel seems to be 2.6.28.

I'm not sure on how to discern a 1110 card from the 1120, any ideas on that?
