I just got my hd-5500, but I can't seem to get this thing moving at all. dtvscan seems to do nothing, dtvsignal <channel whatever> does nothing. I've checed, double-checked, and tripple-checked the cable coming in, I just can't seem to get any channels whatsoever.

Where can I start on figuring this out?

What steps have you performed, what system are you running on, and what do you get when you do > dmesg | tail -n 50 looking for information on HD5500 or DVB, etc.? Please post those here and we'll try to help you out.

Basically "dtvscan", "dtvscan -q" and "dtvsignal <any channel I have tried>" does not work, even under root. They don't find anything, not HD channels and not regular channels. But I used the atscscan someone recommended somewhere in this forum and it seemed to find some channels higher up in the 72+ range. When I take the same coax and hook it into my TV, I can see channels from 2 to 97. Running the myth setup, it can't seem to find any channels, just like the dtvscan and dtvsignal utilities.

I have a Fedora Core 5 box, kernel 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5, fully yum updated, with an Athlon 1800+, nforce3, a RadeonX800, and a newly purchaced HD-5500. I have RCN basic cable in chicago.

I performed the steps on the CD under the HOWTO.FC5, but used the driver from the website. So I installed the kernel source, compiled the modules, edited the /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules to add the groups, and performed the modprobe opperations.

I would very much appreciate any sort of help that you can muster.

Here is the dmesg output:

In the output from dmesg |tail -n 50, I can see the cx8800 get loaded but I don't see any output generated by cx88-dvb. Do an /sbin/lsmod and see if cx88-dvb is loaded. If cx88-blackbird is loaded you will want to remove it. It could be getting in the way of the cx88-dvb module. This may not be your issue, but I want to make sure everything looks right as we move forward on this. Try:

Code:
(as root)
> /sbin/modprobe -vr cx88-blackbird cx88-dvb cx88-alsa cx8800 tuner dvb-pll
> /sbin/modprobe -v cx8800
> /sbin/modprobe -v cx88-alsa
> /sbin/modprobe -v cx88-dvb


Then look at the output from dmesg | tail -n 50 you should see some messages about registering DVB frontend 0 or some such message. If that is there, then try dtvscan or atscscan from Trent and see if it behaves differently. You can disable the cx88-blackbird module by commenting out the line starting with cx88-balckbird in /lib/modules/<kernel version>/modules.pcimap (use a # at the beginning of the line for a comment)

Let me know how far this gets you.

Rusty
