  1. Did the above and now I can't find any channels in MythTV when I scan for them. Also, what was once a static-y buy quasi-visible image during mplayer /dev/video is nothing but static now. I've done all the research on the channel frequencies and even tried manually adding the channels, again to very little effect. I've also tried us-cable and us-cable-hrc with varying options but still can't seem to get the right picture on the screen. I'm now using ivtv-0.4.0 and am following this

    guide. Not sure what else to provide you with.


  2. It shouldn't matter. What do you get from mplayer /dev/video0 ?

     

    Nothing but static. I've tried scanning for channels in MythTV to no luck. I can't even get it to find channels 3 and 4. I had everything up and running about a week ago, but then I lost it. I've started over twice now (complete format). At my wit's end with this thing and contemplating Windows.


  3. I say another because I must have read a hundred others, all offering no help for my setup.

     

    Asus A7N8X-X MB

    Athlon XP

    512 DDR Ram

    160GB HD

    80GB HD

    DVD/CD-RW

    Mandrake 2005 LE (10.2)

    Kerenl 2.6.11-6mdk

    Honestly can't tell which IVTV driver is loaded and functioning. i've gone from the 0.2 series to URPMI ivtv and URPMI dkms-ivtv and finally to the 0.3 series. Somewhere along the way, it found a way to work.

     

    MythTV is up and running, allowing me to watch, record and play back TV, but when I try to fix my xorg.conf to allow TV-Out, I get no dice. Below is my working xorg.con and two versions that don't work. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks again.


  4. Weirdest thing, I posted the above reply and figured I'd give it one more chance. Put the files into k3b and it started burning like it was never a problem. Go figure. I just wish I knew what had caused it and how to prevent it from happening in the future. Oh well, thanks for everyone's help.


  5. Had tried burning as both user and root to no effect. I just turned off DMA, but am getting the exact same results. Something I neglected to mention is that when I do force the media, I get the following:

     

    Error while decoding audio tracks.

    Removing buffer files.

    Unlocking drive...

    Could not unlock CD drive.

     

    Not sure if that's helpful, but I'm just getting frustrated with the whole thing.


  6. Mandrake 10.1

    KDE 3.2.3

    TDK VeloCD 40/12/48B

     

    Been running Mandrake 10.1 for about 6 months now and had no problems burning CDs. I was burning a few today, and, as usual, no problems. The last CD I was burning was going as normal and had reached 100%, but the buffer hadn't emptied (sitting at 18%), so I let it run. It ran for 17 minutes with no change. Killed K3b and tried again, same exact thing (buffer at 18%). Rebooted and tried again. Same thing. Rebooted and tried a different set of audio and K3b won't recognize that there's a blank CD in the drive. If I try and force the media, I get the following:

    I have perused the internet (including this forum), but was unable to find anyone experiencing a siminal problem. I'm going to try and anticipate a few problems first, so as to expedite things.

     

    The drive mounts properly and I can read both data and audio from previously-burned and factory CDs.

    I have tried a plethora of media, all to no avail.

    I used a piece of media I attempted to force (only to receive the above message) and was able to successfully burn data onto it on another computer.

    I just can't seem to figure it out. I have tried uninstalling cdrecord and k3b, both to no avail. What's curious to me is that it worked one minute, but not the next. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  7. I'm up and running in KDE 3.4! Ok, this is how I fixed it. First, I had to change my sound driver (from emu10k1 to Audigy), which was causing a hang on boot. After I could finally boot cleanly, I urpme'd mdkkdm and kdebase-kdm. I then urpmi'd just mdkkdm. Booted and everything was fine. I hope this helps everyone out, as I was getting just a frustrated with it as everyone else.


  8. I've also given up. Now, I can't even boot non-interactively due to the system hanging after start Alsa. If I get past it, I get to kdm. Password works, but it throws me into xterm. Login again and startx to get up and running. Going to reinstall Mandrake 10.1 again tomorrow (time number 2342341231209) and, like Joe, forgot about 3.3 or 3.4 until they're officially supported by Mandrake. Oh well.


  9. I've got the same problem, Joe. I've spent the last 3 days attempting to get it working. Right now, I'm 'urpmi --auto-select' with just the sources from easy urpmi. After that I plan on 'urpmi kdebase' in an effort to upgrade from KDE 3.2 to 3.3. Then, I will add Thac's rpms to my source list and again 'urpmi kdebase', hoping to upgrade from 3.3 to 3.4, but who knows if this will work. If it doesn't, I'll just stick with 3.2, as it works just fine. I'll let you know if this works.


  10. It is most certainly Amarok/XMMS related. After allowing another playlist to run until completion I was again logged out and /var/log/messages again showed the same errors. I'm going to install XMMS and give it a try again tomorrow.


  11. No, I'm certainly running KDE (3.2). I did find this other post (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=188246) where a guy had similar error messages in his messages log, but his was related to an ethernet card (mine's working fine). Someone suggested that there's a conflict between KDE and XMMS, which would support my theory with Amarok. However, I don't really see uninstalling XMMS (and, by extension, Amarok) as a viable option. (Not to mention I'm uncertain if it's even the cause of the problem as it was running just fine until recently).


  12. Just got logged out again and the same sequence of messages appears in my /var/log/messages. I did notice that my playlist in Amarok had just finished, but still not sure if this is coincidental or a conflict of some kind.


  13. No XFree86.0.log in /var/log (or anywhere else that I can see), but /var/log/messages has the following:

    This is repeated about two or three times in the log, which I believe coincides with the logouts, but I won't know until it happens again.
