I'm trying to upgrade my TV recording system with a New PVR500 but am not totally successful.
The ivtv package installed properly. "dmesg" shows the drivers finding the hardware but the perl scripts fail saying "Can't locate Tk.pm in @INC ......"
I assume that I need to install a few perl packages .... but which ones?
Does anyone know which?
The system is current as of 10/8/05 (pacman -Su.)
I also notice that ivtv's web site lists a "ivtv-tune" program but that file is missing from the ArchLinux Package. Is that file too new to be in the package or is there some other reason why it was omitted?
try reinstalling perl.
"pacman -F perl" gives the following error:
loading package data... could not open package: No such file or directory
"pacman -S perl" seems to complete properly but does not change the error when running ivtv's perl scripts.
Any other ideas (or did I reinstall wrong)?
So I download Tk-804.027.tar.gz from http://search.cpan.org/dist/Tk/ and do the ...
So now I avoid the error on Line 19 but fault on Line 24 of config-editor.pl with:
"Can't locate Video/Frequencies.pm in @INC ......"
This looks like something is missing from the ivtv package.
Any other suggestions?
After reading the perl scripts I found the names of the other modules needed...
So I downloaded:
After installing the modules the scripts will run but in trying "record-v4l2.pl" two dozen times I was able to record 3 short samples. The other times the machine rebooted (not a good thing.)
I must be overlooking something. Any suggestions?
What I'm trying to do is get a command line recording script written that I can start as a crontab job. I use streamer with the old card but would like to use the hardward encoder on the new card to do the same job.
