I have a pc running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with two PCI WinTV Nova T 500 tuner cards.
Every so often they will fail and require a reboot.
When they fail, you get tons of this in syslog:
mt2060 I2C write failed (len=2)
The problem is also described here:
Although that was nearly 4 years ago!
I haven't tried any of those workarounds yet, although I will shortly.
Does anybody know a prober fix?
v4l upgrade? Kernel? New firmware perhaps?
Give up and buy new cards?
