Card Slow To Respond


Post by sparks » Wed Oct 23, 2013 3:42 pm

What firmware should be used with a Infinitv 4 pcie and Mythtv? I have a card using while the linux driver page says the latest is Usually more is better but I have a card that is, for the lack of a better term, laggy. It rarely responds to the LinHES v8 probe program,, and is almost never ready when the backend starts causing the tuners to fail during discovery. I defer backend start up with a sleep statement. Usually the first try at live TV results in the infamaous 'jump file error' message. I am wondering if the card is bad or just maybe the firmware is wrong for linux applications.
