When I used Ubuntu 10.10, my tvtime worked perfectly. After upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10, it only shows "no signal". I've searched throughout the internet for a whole day and couldn't fix it. I also use Windows XP at the same time and it works.
Here is my specification.
- Ubuntu 11.10.
- Pinnacle PCTV Hybrid Pro PCI 310i (Philips saa7134)
- tvtime 1.0.2-6ubuntu1 (I downgraded from 1.0.2-7ubuntu1, default by Ubuntu 10.10)
I'm in Germany which means: PAL/PAL-BG and Frequency table=europe
Here is for the information:

So my card=101 and tuner=61, then tried to use rmmod and load it back with modprobe and it still shows "no signal".
$ modprobe saa7134 card=101 tuner=61
And if I run tvtime with verbose setting, it will show:

$ scantv -C/dev/vbi0, no signal could be detected.
Everything looks fine. alsamixer is also fine. I don't know where the problem is. I'll appreciate anyone who can show some hints. :)
