Has anyone managed to get GNUTV working on the sheevaplug?

I've managed to get DVBSTREAM to work, but the VLC client doesn't appear to like the stream produced by DVBSTREAM.

I've tried GNUTV with a full blown Ubuntu desktop and no problems.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks for the feedback, I can't see the VCP option when the Composite Device is displayed. The VCP option does appear if I force an incorrect Serial Driver. I guess if you have it working, what Serial Driver are you using?

As you can see in the attached images, its the Vendor, Product and Serial Number ids that have changed.

Any ways to get around this?

I'm guessing there must be a way to manipulate the .inf file.

Also tried using FT Prog to change the details on the EEPROM, but this didn't work!

Any advice/guidance would be much appreciated.

I have two Sheeva Plugs (both Rev 1.3)  and ordered at the same time.

I am currently using a Windows client to access the JTAG port.

Problem is, the JTAG works on one of the plugs, but not the other!

I'm guessing this is the same issue as above, as Windows isn't able to detect the JTAG port, just the USB Composite Device.

Based on Ken's log messages, I think I'm expericing the same thing, where the working plug detects two SheevaPlug JTAGKey devices, however the other plug just shows another USB Composite Device.

Any ideas how to get this working in Windows?

Thanks
5  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Help using DVB - Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-TD USB2 on: September 21, 2009, 02:05:01 PM
I've been trying to get a Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-TD USB2 stick to work with the SheevaPlug with little success.

After trying to compile my own kernel, I've resorted to the http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/ kernels. Although these install sucessfully, I am still unable to use my DVB stick

If I enter lsusb, I get:

root@debian:/usr/include# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 2040:5200 Hauppauge
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
root@debian:/usr/include#

However lsmod or dmesg return nothing in relation to dvb or the device.

With this in mind, I then tried compiling v4l. Unfortunately I keep getting the following errors:

root@debian:/v4l-dvb# make
make -C /v4l-dvb/v4l
make[1]: Entering directory `/v4l-dvb/v4l'
Updating/Creating .config
Preparing to compile for kernel version 2.6.31
File not found: /lib/modules/2.6.31/build/.config at ./scripts/make_kconfig.pl line 32, <IN> line 4.
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `.myconfig', needed by `config-compat.h'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/v4l-dvb/v4l'
make: *** [all] Error 2
root@debian:/v4l-dvb#

I believe that this is due to missing headers.

I have tried to download and untar the linux headers from http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/ but I'm not sure where the directory structure should be untared to.

So, I guess this leaves with me with two questions:

1. Can anybody tell me how to get DVB working with the Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-TD USB2 on the Sheeva Plug?

2. How do I get the headers installed correctly to allow v4l to make correctly?

Thanks
