|Hello, I've sent email to pcHDTV support last week and I haven't heard anything yet. Here's the email that I sent to them. Hopefully I can get some answers.
============ EMAIL ==================
I'm having a hard time with the HD-5500 getting to
work. I initially ordered this around Jan/Feb of this
year. I've read many forums such as pcHDTV, mythtv,
and other ones I don't remember.
I originally had slackware installed on a completely
new system. And when I tried to get signal from the
HD-5500, I get none. So, to see it's not my setup,
I've basically installed many linux distros (SUSE,
Ubuntu, Fedora Core, etc).
Now, I've switched back to slackware and updated the
kernel at that time (188.8.131.52), but I still don't get
Originally, I have cable internet, and I split the
line (one going to my cable modem, and the other going
to the TV). Going to the TV works, but going to the
HD-5500 does not. So, I thought that maybe it's my
cable connection. I didn't think anything of it since
I was going to move to a new place soon, so hopefully
it will work there.
Since then, I have moved, and now back to getting this
to work. I again have cable internet (not the same
provider). First I tried to plug the coax cable
directly to the HD-5500 and no signal.
I am all out of ideas. Can you help?
Oh, and I know the modules are loaded correctly, so
it's not a driver problem.
