Haupauge WinTV PVR250

I've got some further information that may help solving the problem.

To test my installation I downloaded the Linux-distribution KnoppMyth
(http://mysettopbox.tv/knoppmyth.html) and installed it. After some
tweaking of the configfiles I got the card to work.

When loading the ivtv-drivers (http://ivtv.sourceforge.net) I get the
following information about the card:

tvee: Hauppauge: model=32034, rev=B148, serial#=6960535
tvee: tuner=LG TP18PSB11D (idx=48, type=29)
tvee: tuner fmt=PAL(B/G) (eeprom=0x04, v4l2=0x00000007)
tvee: audio_processor=MSP3415 (type=6)

The cxm-driver in FreeBSD reports the card as type=0x30. The ivtv-driver
reports the card as type=29. I guesss that these values should be the
same?  Could it be the extraction of the firmware that differs?

When looking through the code for the cxm-driver LG-tuners isn't
mentioned anywhere. I guess that they should be added, but I don't know
enough of the drivers/tuner to do the modification.  Can anyone give me
som information on what I need to change?

I’ve just bought a Haupauge WinTV PVR250 and installed it in my machin e
running FreeBSD 4.9


I followed the instructions from John in
ext/2004/freebsd-multimedia/20040208.freebsd-multimedia and also found
the problem that Christoph
840.html) had.


When I run the following commands;


kldload cxm_iic



I get the following


cxm0: <Conexant iTVC16 MPEG Coder> mem 0xdc000000-0xdfffffff irq 10 at
device 11.0 on pci0

cxm_iic0: <Conexant iTVC15 / iTVC16 I2C controller> on cxm0

iicbb0: <I2C bit-banging driver> on cxm_iic0

iicbus0: <Philips I2C bus> on iicbb0 master-only

cxm0: unknown tuner code 0x30

cxm0: could not initialize tuner

iicbus0: detached

iicbb0: detached

cxm_iic0: detached

device_probe_and_attach: cxm0 attach returned 6

        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 10

        Memory at dc000000 (32-bit, prefetchable)

        Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2



pciconf -lv

rev=0x01 hdr=0x00

    vendor   = 'Conexant Inc (Was: Globespan, ICompression Inc)'

    class    = multimedia

    subclass = video



I’ve looked at the components of the card and found the following;

Card:                Hauppauge PVR250 model 986 (according to package)

Model 32034, PAL B/G, rev. B148 (according to card)

Tuner:               LG TP18PSB11D

MPEG 2 enc:    Conexant CD23416-12

Sound encoder: MSP 3215G

Assembeled:     Week 47, 2003


I guess that the drivers aren’t updated to handle this new card. Does
anyone (John?) have some hints what I should do modify the drivers to
