Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2200: Firmware loads too late

Can someone help me!!

I've installed xbmc live with vdr-VNSI on ubuntu minimal 10.04.
I bought a HVR-2200 and installed the drivers for it but the problem is that when xbmc loads it says check backend of vdr.

I looked at the syslog and vdr says no dvb device but the tv tuner firmware loads properly, then i tried restarting vdr from the terminal and then turning the vdr addon off on xbmc then back on again and it works.

I'm pretty sure the problem is that the firmware for my tuner is being loaded too late and vdr doesn't see it.

Can someone help me out?

RE: Firmware loads too late

Is it this card?
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Ha…_WinTV-HVR-2200

Do you use one of our packages dvb-s2-liplianin-dkms or v4l-dvb-dkms? If so, which one?

Can you paste dmesg output in code blocks here?

Cheers

Although I don't know if there is a solution for your problem the good news is that I'm interested in learning about this problem because (like already said on XBMC forum: there are more users who have this problem [1], likely with different hardware).

Normally, because you don't use the yaVDR distro but only some of the packages, we would tell you not to post within the yaVDR sub-forum.

But in this case I think I am intested in this problem simply because it shows that the problem might not be yaVDR related but more "Ubuntu kernel" related.

There is no need to install dvb-s2-liplianin-dkms or v4l-dvb-dkms if your card is supported by the Lucid kernel. I would not recommend to install one of those packages unless you exactly know why you need them.

By the way: You mentioned above that you have installed drivers. Which drivers are you talking about?

In case we don't find the reason for your problem there is always the Ubuntu Bugtracker on Launchpad or the option to post on the dvb/v4l-mailinglist. Both options seem to be interesting from my point of view.

But first of all, we will wait for your dmesg output.

Cheers,
hepi

Well, the drivers mentioned there are no DVB drivers but WLAN drivers if I see it correctly?!? So that means you didn't need to install drivers for your DVB-card?
