 If you can successfully tune and get a valid TS from the DVR device,
 you can rule out issues with the card and the driver.
 You can verify the functionality of the hardware and driver with the
 command line applications from the dvb-apps repository.

Thanks, this got me started. The card and the driver is working fine.

Best regards,

Mantis driver on TechniSat CableStar HD 2

2009-12-27 Thread Wolfgang Denk
I have problems getting a TechniSat CableStar HD 2 DVB-C card
running with the latest Mantis driver on a Fedora 12 system (using
their current standard 2.6.31.9-174.fc12.i686.PAE kernel in
combination with the drivers from the http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
repository). Tests have been done on two different mainboards.

I can run a channel scan (using kaffeine) perfectly fine, also tuning
to channels appears to work. I see a load of some 1,300 interrupts per
sec when I have kaffeine running and tuned, and it seems there is data
transferred between the card and the application.

The problem is: there is no video nor sound.

I have bought this card second-hand on, so I am not really sure if it
is a software issue, or if eventually the hardware is broken.


Can anybody recommend a way how to verify the driver or the hardware?
Or can you recommend a specific kernel version the Mantis driver has
been tested against?

Any help welcome. Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
