Hi there,

i bought a Cinergy T2 USB DVB-adapter last week - and it seems i am unable to get it running on my AMD64

I have the following options in my kernel:
Device Drivers -> I2C -> I2C support
Device Drivers -> I2C -> I2C device interface
Device Drivers -> I2C -> I2C Algorithms -> I2C bit-banging interfaces

Device Drivers -> Multimedia devices -> Video For Linux
Device Drivers -> Multimedia devices -> Digital Video Broadcasting Devices -> DVB For Linux
Device Drivers -> Multimedia devices -> Digital Video Broadcasting Devices -> DVB Core Support
Device Drivers -> Multimedia devices -> Digital Video Broadcasting Devices -> Terratec CinergyT2/quanu USB2 DVBT receiver

All these options are compiled into the kernel - none of them are modules - because i figured out it might be a problem with module loading which it seems it wasn't ...

Code:
cat /proc/devices

gives me (among others):
Code:
 81 video4linux


and the (in my opinion) relevant parts of my dmesg are:

Code:

hub 2-0:1.0: USB hub found
hub 2-0:1.0: 10 ports detected
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
DVB: registering new adapter (TerraTec/qanu USB2.0 Highspeed DVB-T Receiver).
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
usb 2-1: new low speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb-0000:00:02.0-1
usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.01:USB HID core driver
i2c /dev entries driver


As far as I can tell everything is loaded fine...
Anyway the only thing
Code:
xawtv -hwscan

gives me is:
Code:

This is xawtv-3.94, running on Linux/x86_64 (2.6.12-gentoo-r6)
looking for available devices
port 270-270
    type : Xvideo, image scaler
    name : NV17 Video Texture

port 271-302
    type : Xvideo, image scaler
    name : NV05 Video Blitter


And tvtime gives me a "cannot open capture device /dev/video0"

even though /dev/video0 up to /dev/video63 exist (and none seems to be working).
Also I have in /dev/dvb/adapter0/:
demux0, dvr0, frontend0, net0.

Using dvbscan it is possible to scan for channels and doesn t give me any errors.
So obviously the device seems to be working...

Still xawtv gives me an
Code:

This is xawtv-3.94, running on Linux/x86_64 (2.6.12-gentoo-r6)
WARNING: Your X-Server has no DGA support.
can't open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l: open /dev/video0: No such device
no video grabber device available


when I try to run it...

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG ;)
I am pretty sure this is just a silly configuration error but I just can t figure it out..

Please help!!! :D

Since this is my first post here - please be gentle if i have just made a complete fool of myself...

Is just that xawtv and tvtime aren't meant to watch DVB.
U can use xine /kaffeine, here is a guide (in Italian):

U can also check my little and BETA howto to set the remote:

But xine outputs the following:

Code:
xine engine failed to start.

No input plugin found.
Maybe the file does not exist, has wrong permissions or
URL syntax error.


I seem to be a bit stuck here and I can t really tell the point where I went wrong...
:cry:

Search the forum for this and you'll find a lot. For quick and easy tv watching you should emerge kaffeine.

@Matteo : I didn't notice your howto right now. Great stuff.

Thanks for the replys and the hints.

Since kaffeine is a KDE-application and I am running a Gnome-only system on my desktop it is not really appliccable for me - but I will still give the xine/gxine solution a go :) Hope it will work out - if it does i will post so here in a few hours (after I got home from work and gave it a try)...

Xytras, is there any specific reason you need these I2C kernel options? My CinergyT² works fine without them, even the remote control can switch channels (if nothing else). Do you have full remote control support?
