Hauppauge wintv nova-t [Solved]


Recommended Posts



I carry-on my investigations into getting a dvb-t to work under Mandriva 2007. The card is a wintv nova-t from Hauppauge with an IR remote control. The chip on the card is from connexant and its id is cx2388x.


[root@linux-box dev]# lsmod | grep cx
cx8800				 28460  0
cx88xx				 55620  1 cx8800
ir_common			  24484  2 bttv,cx88xx
i2c_algo_bit			9352  2 bttv,cx88xx
video_buf			  21220  3 bttv,cx8800,cx88xx
tveeprom			   14192  2 bttv,cx88xx
i2c_core			   17536  5 bttv,nvidia,cx88xx,i2c_algo_bit,tveeprom

compat_ioctl32		  1952  2 bttv,cx8800
v4l1_compat			14212  1 cx8800
btcx_risc			   4840  3 bttv,cx8800,cx88xx
videodev				8064  3 bttv,cx8800,cx88xx
and lspci :
04:09.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder (rev 05)
04:09.2 Multimedia controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [MPEG Port] (rev 05)
04:09.4 Multimedia controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [IR Port] (rev 05)
root@linux-box dev]#


So it seems that the device is correctly detected. When I start kdetv, the program detects the card and tries to find some channel with no success.


Drakconf detects the card with brand and chip correctly recognised, but the IR remote appears in the keyboards (still with correct name).


The card works under windows (Boooh!) and detects all the local channels from my local aerial (uk-Mendip).


What I don t get is that I should have a device in /dev/dvb/ and I don t have this directory!


So my questions are :


-even though Drakconf has detected the card and the remote, does it mean that they are correctly installed?

-Where can I find out if they are actually installed.

-where can I see them in my modprobe.conf?


alias eth0 forcedeth
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
install scsi_hostadapter /sbin/modprobe sata_nv; /bin/true
install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe ohci-hcd; /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /bin/true
alias eth1 eth1394
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
remove snd-hda-intel /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-hda-intel
install snd-hda-intel /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-hda-intel && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }

options visor vendor=0x0830 product=0x061
blacklist audio
blacklist snd-usb-audio


All probably very basic stuff but it's just getting on my nads a little bit!


Thanks for your help!

I am using same card with kaffeine and I added a line cx88_dvb to /etc/modprobe.preload and

lsmod | grep cx shows.
