#1703 closed defect (fixed)

M179 on ivtv-0.6+

Reported by: dlou99@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: 0.19
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The Aver M179 has a broken volume control.

In earlier versions of ivtv, you could set the volume but it wouldn't do anything. It would always remain at 65535. In ivtv 0.6.1 volume control for the M179 has been disabled. However, Myth will abort opening mpeg recorder if it can't set the volume. This proposed patch allows it to continue in this case.

patch for changed ivtv API with respect to AverMedia? M179

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [9913]) The AVerMedia M179 card does not support setting the recording volume and recent ivtv releases >= 0.6 will return an error if you try to set the volume on of these cards. This commit turns the error message stating we are unable to set the recording volume into a warning for the MpegRecorder? class with a note explaining this is normal for the M179 capture card. Reported by dlou99.

Closes #1703 by applying a different patch.

(In [9914]) Slightly modified version of [9913] to allow people with AVerMedia M179 cards to use the 0.19-fixes branch of MythTV with 0.6+ versions of the ivtv driver.

References #1703.
