I did more work on the tvtime audio today. It’s basically working, at least on the HVR-950q:
hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/~dheitmueller/tvtime/
At this point, I am recommending running the “src/tvtime” binary directly as opposed to doing a “make install”. The “autoreconf” step is required because this is not a tarball, and hence there is no “./configure” like you would normally expect. It also means though that you need autoconf and automake installed.
The current code is being developed on Ubuntu 9.10, so if you try it on another distro and there are build problems, feel free to let me know (and better yet, submit patches).
The option isn’t exposed in the GUI yet, so you have to run:
And if you’re using an em28xx based device, don’t even try to use this code – it exposes a bug in the em28xx-alsa driver which instantly hoses the kernel.
Anyway, I’m hoping to do some testing of the code with more devices this week. Just wanted to provide a status update so people don’t think there is nothing going on with this stuff.
As always, feedback (either good or bad) is always welcome in the comments section below. Comments definitely welcome in particular if you’re willing to try it out with other tuners.
