Post subject:  IvyTV not working with new releases

This tipically happens when you do an auto upgrade. When you backup, /etc/mythtv/modules is backed and restored and part of the upgrade process. Newer version of ivtv don't like certain options that we exceptable in the past. To correct this, you'll need to edit /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv and remove or comment any line than has
options ivtv debug
options tuner
in it. Here is a sample of a working /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
#options ivtv debug=1
#options tuner type=2
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1
install ivtv /sbin/modprobe tuner; /sbin/modprobe msp3400; /sbin/modprobe saa711
5;  /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install  ivtv
remove ivtv /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove ivtv && /sbin/modprobe -r saa7115
&& /sbin/modprobe -r msp3400 && /sbin/modprobe -r tuner

In addition to the above changes, I had a line

options saa7127 enable_output=1 output_select=0

which I removed as the last step to get my PVR350 output to work.

Hey Cecil:

Could you please comment on to which versions these rules apply, as far as you know.

If I remember correctly this showed up only in R5A15+ at least for publicly released versions.

Your best source for IvyTV info is the IvyTV mailing list. I don't know which version this behavior was changed. The simply fact of the matter is that is where I'd have to look if I wanted to find out. Sorry, I'm not tyring to put you off, but I cannot possible try and keep up w/ every little change for every program.

Yeah, this seems to be a big pita. What is it that keeps changing from one version of ivtv to the next that requires different frustrating.

fixing this such that if you search for an error, you find the solution instead of someone telling you that you need to learn how to search better:

tuner: Unknown parameter `type'
ivtv: Unknown parameter `debug'

It is probaly enough to know that these changes apply to the ivytv included with the latest knoppmyth (R5C7).

The known issues related to upgrading to a version (e.g. R5C7) with the most recent "good" ivtv driver (which is currently 0.4.4, since 0.4.5 has some serious issues, and 0.6.x requires a new kernel) and how to fix them are documented on the page on the wiki.

Well, I'm glad I stayed on the IVTV users mailing list. Usually only a couple of msgs per day, but a lot of info.

Current good version of the file:
root@black2:~# cat /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
options msp3400 once=1
install ivtv /sbin/modprobe tuner; /sbin/modprobe msp3400; /sbin/modprobe saa7115; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install ivtv
remove ivtv /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove ivtv && /sbin/modprobe -rsaa7115 && /sbin/modprobe -r msp3400 && /sbin/modprobe -r tuner

Note that the following options are now obsolete:
    options msp3400 simple=X
    options ivtv tda9887=X ivtv_std=X

In addition to the option changes above, going from 0.8.x to 0.10.x the various ivtv buffer options have become obsolete and will cause module loading errors.
    options ivtv yuv_buffers=X mpg_buffers=X vbi_buffers=X pcm_buffers=X

Another bogus option.
After installing R5F27, my /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv had a
option ivtv ivtv_
which caused my cards not to show up.
During bootup I was getting a Unknown Parameter 'ivtv_'
Commenting out the option made everthing happy.

Ugh. I've got to get a fix to Human for the script for the live patcher. It doesn't check for a leading space like it should. No idea what that was before the script chopped off the tail of it, since it doesn't look familiar, but it was probably either debug or buffer override option...

You should have a /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv~ file there you can compare it with to be sure.
