Hi, As I was expecting, my post to freebsd-multimedia will not get me anywhere.. However, I'm not in the mood to give up this time.. Anyone here who has experienced making Leadtek Winfast 2000 XP RM work under FreeBSD? Just one quick answer, please.... Is this supported or not? :-(
I've been digging the list archive for quite some time now but still no luck. Someone got the same tv tuner and asked for help about a year ago.. http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/htdig/freebsd-multimedia/2005-May/002151.html http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/htdig/freebsd-multimedia/2005-August/002517.html I wonder what he/she has done with his tuner.. or did he just bought another one which costs more. You might want to check on the thread I started at freebsd-multimedia: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-multimedia/2006-November/005242.html Thanks for the time.. I hope this is not cross posting.. i'm just trying to get some more help.. :-( ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Mark Jayson Alvarez <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date: Nov 7, 2006 10:13 PM Subject: Please don't tell me this is a "WIntuner" (my winmodem memories keep hunting me...:-) To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Hi, just purchased an ultra-cheap PCI TV Tuner, Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP RM and couldn't make it to work. There were only 17 matches when you search the freebsd-multimedia archive for "winfast"... been reading it over and over again and I couldn't get any closer to my goal. The box: FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE Sysctl: hw.bt848.slow_msp_audio: -1 hw.bt848.format: 0 hw.bt848.reverse_mute: -1 hw.bt848.tuner: 15 hw.bt848.card: 14 I tried using kbtv: Hardware Info: Bktr module: Loaded Capture chip: BrookTree 878 Card name: Leadtek Winfast TV 2000 <sysctl:14> -huh!? I thought it was 15 says bktr (4) Tuner type: LG TP18PSB12P PAL <sysctl:15> - as according to this: http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/htdig/freebsd-multimedia/2005-August/002521.html I'm leaving here in the Philippines The tv tuner's surface doesn't really say anything about it's tuner type. It just have a sticker with "Winfast TV2000 XP RM" and "NTSC" selected on the checkbox.. The chipset is definitely a Conexant Fusion 878. I tried xawtv... played with different values to no avail. $xawtv -hwscan This is xawtv-3.95, running on FreeBSD/i386 (6.2-PRERELEASE) looking for available devices port 57-88 type : Xvideo, image scaler name : NV Video Blitter /dev/bktr0: OK [ -device /dev/bktr0 ] type : bktr flags: overlay capture tuner However, upon launching xawtv, I got these: $xawtv This is xawtv-3.95, running on FreeBSD/i386 (6.2-PRERELEASE) Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-ledfixed-medium-r-*--39-*-*-*-c-*-*-*" to type FontStruct Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". I removed bktr_load="YES" from /boot/loader.conf, rebooted the machine sysctl were also gone it was detected as: Leadtek Winfast TV 2000, Philips FR1236 NTSC FM tuner. Perhaps you can get something from the verbose dmesg: bktr_mem: memory holder loaded pci0: driver added found-> vendor=0x8086, dev=0x27da, revid=0x01 bus=0, slot=31, func=3 class=0c-05-00, hdrtype=0x00, mfdev=0 cmdreg=0x0001, statreg=0x0280, cachelnsz=0 (dwords) lattimer=0x00 (0 ns), mingnt=0x00 (0 ns), maxlat=0x00 (0 ns) intpin=b, irq=23 pci0:31:3: reprobing on driver added pci1: driver added found-> vendor=0x109e, dev=0x036e, revid=0x11 bus=1, slot=1, func=0 class=04-00-00, hdrtype=0x00, mfdev=1 cmdreg=0x0006, statreg=0x0290, cachelnsz=0 (dwords) lattimer=0x40 (1920 ns), mingnt=0x10 (4000 ns), maxlat=0x28 (10000 ns) intpin=a, irq=21 powerspec 2 supports D0 D3 current D0 pci1:1:0: reprobing on driver added bktr0: <BrookTree 878> mem 0xbfffe000-0xbfffefff irq 21 at device 1.0 on pci1 bktr0: Reserved 0x1000 bytes for rid 0x10 type 3 at 0xbfffe000 ioapic0: routing intpin 21 (PCI IRQ 21) to vector 59 bktr0: [GIANT-LOCKED] brooktree0: PCI bus latency is 64. bktr0: buffer size 3555328, addr 0x1a000000 bktr0: GPIO is 0x003ff502 bktr0: subsystem 0x107d 0x6609 bktr0: Leadtek Winfast TV 2000, Philips FR1236 NTSC FM tuner. found-> vendor=0x109e, dev=0x0878, revid=0x11 bus=1, slot=1, func=1 class=04-80-00, hdrtype=0x00, mfdev=1 cmdreg=0x0006, statreg=0x0290, cachelnsz=0 (dwords) lattimer=0x40 (1920 ns), mingnt=0x04 (1000 ns), maxlat=0xff (63750 ns) intpin=a, irq=21 powerspec 2 supports D0 D3 current D0 pci1:1:1: reprobing on driver added pci2: driver added pci3: driver added pci4: driver added found-> vendor=0x10de, dev=0x0160, revid=0xa1 bus=4, slot=0, func=0 class=03-00-00, hdrtype=0x00, mfdev=0 cmdreg=0x0007, statreg=0x0010, cachelnsz=4 (dwords) lattimer=0x00 (0 ns), mingnt=0x00 (0 ns), maxlat=0x00 (0 ns) intpin=a, irq=16 powerspec 2 supports D0 D3 current D0 MSI supports 1 message, 64 bit pci4:0:0: reprobing on driver added tun0: bpf attached Is this some sort of like winmodem issue?? I noticed that a lot people are complaining about not making their tv tuner to work. Any idea why?
