Archive for the ‘hvr-1600’ Tag

Ok.. Who gave me the stupid pill?

Why o why would I do this to myself? The other day I decided it would be a good idea to update to the latest testing drivers for my HVR-1600 cards. Not the brightest move, for sure. Fortunately for me, Project Runway runs all the time. The wife was not to terribly pleased..

PS – Don’t do this during season premiere kickoff week either.


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
  2. ~#>cd hdpvr
  3. ~#>hg pull
  4. ~#>hg merge
  5. ~#>hg commit
  6. ~#>wget -O
  7. ~#>unzip 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
