Installing PEAK 138508AGPK DVB-T Digital TV Hybrid PCI Card

try:

sudo modprobe -r saa7134_alsa
sudo modprobe -r saa7134
sudo modprobe saa7134 card=78 tuner=54
sudo modprobe saa7134_alsa

(actually you can *probably skip the reloading of saa7134_alsa … ie. the last command … it seems to automatically get loaded when you load saa7134)

and do them the right way round … remove the saa7134_alsa driver first

if that doesn’t work … send the output from the attempts, and the output from:

lsmod

[EDIT]

Have you worked out how to scan for channels in tvtime yet ? … becuase this may be futile till you know how to do that.

Afraid I have NO IDEA, I cant see anywhere that has scan or search???

Tried ismod again and got;

Just checked it out and I miss-typed it lol ismod instead of lsmod

What is the output from:

sudo rmmod saa7134_alsa

peter@Petes-ubuntu-pc:~$ sudo rmmod saa7134_alsa
[sudo] password for peter:
ERROR: Module saa7134_alsa is in use
peter@Petes-ubuntu-pc:~$

have you got ANY applications open that might be using the driver … ie. is tvtime still open ?

Close ALL running applications and try this again:

sudo rmmod saa7134_alsa
sudo rmmod saa7134
sudo modprobe saa7134 card=78 tuner=54
sudo modprobe saa7134_alsa

Nope… theres NOTHING using it because as far as I know, IT’S NOT INSTALLED!
I don’t remember installing it

Something is definitely using the saa7134_alsa driver.

Reboot … and when your system restarts do nothing other than open a terminal and run:

sudo rmmod saa7134_alsa
sudo rmmod saa7134
sudo modprobe saa7134 card=78 tuner=54
sudo modprobe saa7134_alsa

Nope… Didn’t work

I tried something… Removed my GRAPHICS CARD and I get this…

http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/1323/screenshotat20111130004.th.png

I have never seen the bar at the bottom and the bar ar the top is different too, when I had the grapgics card installed it was not in colour and I didn’t have ‘Places’ there either.

How do I go about uninstalling my graphics drivers?

What are you doing ? … this has nothing to do with your GFX card

Put the GFX card back in … you are being presented with the gnome-session-fallback interface.

try this and tell me what happens:

sudo rmmod -f saa7134_alsa
sudo rmmod saa7134
sudo modprobe saa7134 card=78 tuner=54
sudo modprobe saa7134_alsa

or just try

sudo rmmod -f saa7134
sudo modprobe saa7134 card=78 tuner=54

then if either of those work without an error … what is the output from:

tvtime

Tried sudo rmmod -f saa7134_alsa and got;

peter@Petes-ubuntu-pc:~$ sudo rmmod -f saa7134_alsa
[sudo] password for peter:
ERROR: Removing ‘saa7134_alsa’: Resource temporarily unavailable

and

sudo rmmod -f saa7134
sudo modprobe saa7134 card=78 tuner=54

??

same on the first command.

also, in the previous screenshot, how can I get that desktop back, I preferred it as everything was organised, the activities and programs, it was easier to choose what I wanted.

Leave the TV card thing with me as i’m off to bed.

The other desktop … log off … now at the login screen, click the little cog symbol above where you enter your password, and select GNOME Classic … now login normally … that will give you the older style 2 panel desktop (as in your screenshot).

As I’m not 100% sure which desktop you’re after -

GNOME = single top panel
GNOME Classic = panel at top and bottom

Thats ok, it IS late. Nite nite :slight_smile:
Thanks for the help

And on the desktop thingy too .
:slight_smile:

If you can’t get the GNOME desktop to work … you’ll have to put your GFX card back in … it defaulted to GNOME Classic because whatever card you were using didn’t support the full GNOME desktop.

It doesnt work with the GFX card put back in either, same view

activate the driver in “Additional Drivers” … if necessary, de-activate it, then re-activate it.
