I've been trying to setup any one of my 3 TV cards with Mythbuntu for the past two days and I really could do with some help.... I'm also a complete noob when it comes to Ubuntu/Linux.
What I have:
- Mythbuntu 12.04.3
- TBS 6984 DVB-S2
Note: I'm only trying one card at a time then giving up and re-installing.
I installed the firmware using:
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
MythTV won't scan for any channels with any of the cards.
However if I run the below I can see all the available channels in the terminal:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install dvb-apps mplayer scan -x0 /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E | tee channels.conf
I then try to import the channels with the channels.conf using the below but that doesn't work either:
sudo service mythtv-backend stop scan /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E > channels.conf
When looking at the terminal whilst I'm trying to import the .conf file I get:
mythtv FE_GET_INFO ioctl failed (/dev/dvb/adaptor0/frontend0) eno: No such device (19)
And when in MythTV Setup and I try to configure a capture card using 'DVB DTV capture card (v3.x)' my Front End reports:
Could not get card info for car /dev/dvb/adaptor0/frontend0 subtype: Unknown error
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm just going round in circles and I've exhausted all my Google search terms.
