Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 330781
DVB-T USB Stick does not work anymore
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
My DVB-T USB Stick by Freecom does not work anymore, but I remember it working
with an earlier release of the 2.6.22 kernel. Newer versions of version 2.6.22
and the 2.6.23 kernel do not work anymore. When I scan for channels, scandvb
does not find any. Using my laptop with a VIA chipset and the same kernel, it
works flawlessly. That's why I think it may be USB related. I have an other PC
running Ubuntu Gutsy with 2.6.22 kernel and the same chipset (Nforce), and the
same issue appears there.
Dmesg output follows:
usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 5
usb 1-1: not running at top speed; connect to a high speed hub
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
dvb-usb: found a 'WideView WT-220U PenType Receiver (Typhoon/Freecom)' in warm
dvb-usb: will use the device's hardware PID filter (table count: 15).
DVB: registering new adapter (WideView WT-220U PenType Receiver (Typhoon/Freecom))
DVB: registering frontend 0 (WideView USB DVB-T)...
input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as /class/input/input5
dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 300 msecs.
dvb-usb: WideView WT-220U PenType Receiver (Typhoon/Freecom) successfully
initialized and connected.
dvb-usb: recv bulk message failed: -110
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug it in
2. Run scandvb de-Ruhrgebiet
It does not find any channels.
It should show the channels like my VIA chipset based machine does.
As I think it may be important which chipset my computer has, the smolt profile
is available here:
ehci_hcd is loaded:
lsmod | grep ehci_hcd
ehci_hcd 31565 0
i switched the usb port.. and now it works..
