I have both a /dev/v4l/video0 and a /dev/dvb/adaptor0/, and read-write access to both.

dmesg seems to show that the card is recognized, though there is a bit of an error:

Code:
cx88[0]/2-mpeg: cx8802_timeout

Using the tools I cannot get a signal at all.

The issues carry over into MythTV, where it seems to recognize the card, but scanning for channels gives -nothing-. I know the antenna works, all connections seem ok, what am I doing wrong? Do I have a dead card?

FWIW, I just bought a 5500 and I'm getting the same error. I tried different driver versions, different operating systems, and different PC's - same exact error.

Unfortunately I haven't heard anything back from pchdtv.com's support.

Something is wrong with the manufacturing I think. This thing is a paperweight.

I have a 2000 that works perfectly in the same environment.

OK it seems that this message happens if there isn't a good enough signal from the antenna.

As it turns out, my dog had chewed up the cable going to the roof... once I replace it, the card stopped giving me this error, and MythTV is happy.

My HD2000 now works fine too so I guess I'll have to set up a dual-tuner system.
