I don't have the device in question, however try using guvcview to view it.foxcube wrote:Has anyone had any success with the above?
It is seen by the system and I can set and check configuration, but when I try to read data, the program locks up.
I'm accessing it with the V4L2 API and as I'm trying to learn that and Linux at the same time, it's extremely likely that it's something I'm not doing right. If anyone has got it to work with some standard software, that would be a good pointer.
So does that mean you can watch analog tv on your Pi with the HVR-1900? (I'm interested in doing this and am wondering how well that works before I buy one.)G4GUO wrote:Well I fixed my problem with my HVR-1900 , I didn't have
all the firmware files installed. Note to self always read the
dmesg output very carefully!
Can you please give us some insight of how well is the video capture working? Is it better than an EasyCap adapter?G4GUO wrote:I am afraid I don't know, I have only tried using it for video capture.
All the driver support is there in the Kernel so it should be possible
to use the tuner for broadcast reception.
Yes because the Hauppauge does hardware MPEG2 compression so there is considerably less activity on the USB interface.pmijoiu wrote:Can you please give us some insight of how well is the video capture working? Is it better than an EasyCap adapter?
