HD-PVR/HVR-1600 32-bit Compatibility fixed!

User trueno on the SageTV forums posted this patch which adds full ioctl support for a 32-bit software package running with these 64-bit drivers in Linux. If you have both devices like I do, I would suggest the following implementation:

  1. ~#>hg clone http://hg.jannau.net/hdpvr/
  2. ~#>cd hdpvr
  3. ~#>hg pull http://linuxtv.org/hg/~awalls/v4l-dvb/
  4. ~#>hg merge
  5. ~#>hg commit
  6. ~#>wget -O sage64.patch.zip http://forums.sagetv.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=7049&d=1218594284
  7. ~#>unzip sage64.patch.zip sage64.patch
  8. ~#>cat sage64.patch | patch -p1
  9. ~#>hg merge
  10. ~#>hg commit
  11. ~#>make menuconfig #select/deselect the options
  12. ~#>make
  13. ~#>sudo make install
  14. ~#>sudo reboot

Have fun. In testing HVR-1600s do not throw dmesg errors and I haven’t hooked the hd-pvr back up to Linux yet –b
