Re: [vdr] analogtv plugin with HVR-1800

2010-02-21 Thread Timothy D. Lenz
I can't buy any more hardware for this and there isn't channels to 
justify it anyway. It's just that the card has the hardware and is 
listed as supported under linux. So, thought if it was just a plugin to 
get it going..

But according to this link, only the 1800 has linux support for analog:

With both cards in, I have 3 dvb adapters and all 3 have:

Hi Timothy,

I was in the same position as you and found an inexpensive pvr500 on
eBay.  It's a nice card, and more importantly, doesn't interfere with
the ATSC cards I have.

I also now have a cable HD box connected up to it.  PVRINPUT will change
the channels on the box to the correct one and either select SVIDEO on
the PVR500 or the HDPVR box and display it in HD.

At quick glance, it looks like there are quite a few Hauppauge PVR
devices listed on eBay at the moment.  Just make sure it's an NTSC one.
  The first two I got were PAL (even though sold from Detroit).  The guy
didn't realise, in the end I sent them to a friend in Hungary.

Rob

[vdr] analogtv plugin with HVR-1800

2010-02-18 Thread Timothy D. Lenz
As anyone tried using the analogtv plugin with an HVR-1800 on 
vdr-1.7.12? And does it interfere with the atsc plugin since both would 
be using the same tuner? I've been told that analog mode does work with 
this card with tvtime, so I was thinking of giving it a try. The card is 
supposed to be able to tune both atsc and ntsc, plus it has video/audio 
inputs.

 This is a hybrid tuner, right? Since the vdr and the analogtv doesn't coordinate their access on the device, I doubt 
it will work.
 Also it has build in a MPEG2 encoder, the right plugin would be pvrinput, but currently, the HVR-1800 is not 
supported. Recently I added support for the HD PVR, but I don't know how complicated it would be, to support the 
HVR-1800 as well. Especially because of the hybrid tuner. The two vdr devices dvbdevice and pvrdevice has to share 
the same hardware. There's no infrastructure for this at the moment...
