I have been trying in vain for weeks trying to get an HVR-1600 tuner card
to work in a new system I built (Intel mobo, Core i5, 8G RAM). It worked
fine in my old one but I'm not getting anything when I try to capture,
either with MythTV or directly cat'ing /dev/video > filename.mpg. I've
tried installing the same version of mythbuntu (10.04 w/2.6.32 kernel) that
I have on my working system but the motherboard is too new to get network
support in that kernel (so installing all the various dependencies for
ivtv-utils appears to be incredibly difficult).
Any suggestions? I am not seeing anything in kernel log right now
suggesting a direction to go.
