Hyperion.ng external grabber no /dev/video0

What is proper internal graber for hyperion on coreelec? Amlgraber does not work for me. Efects are ok.

As @adamg said, I’ve been testing the kernel module and the grabber it’s detected but does not show any input while trying to capture an screenshot. I expect to test it thoroughly during the weekend.

I’m testing it on a S905 device with a Fushicai grabber, so I cannot test STK1160, but If you want to check if it works on yours, here’s a link to an update file with the kernel module based in latest master. S905 only, do not install it in other devices!

Remember this is a development build, although I’m running it without any problem, things may broke :wink:

I just tried the update I could load the usbtv module but still no device video0.

Try adding an udev rule to assing your device to /dev/video0

Run:

CoreELEC:~ # lsusb 
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 2341:8036 Arduino SA Leonardo (CDC ACM, HID)
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1997:2433

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Note down your device ID, in this case 1b71:3002

Create a udev rule file, ie:/storage/.config/udev.rules.d/25-video-device.rules and add the following content changing your particular device IDs

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1b71", ATTRS{idProduct}=="3002", NAME:="video0", OPTIONS:="link_priority=100"

just tried that but still no video0 device.
here my lsusb output:
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

i think the stk1160 module is missing which was in earlier version included in the hauppage driver add-on.
a modinfo usbtv just give me Fushicai USBTV007:

hope that helps…

It helps indeed, I’ll take a look into it. Unfortunately the kernel driver and the one in dvb-latest are different versions, hence the lack of support for your hardware on 3.19. The newer one crashed on my hardware.

Would you mind to test this other build with module from dvb-latest and PM me with dmesg and hyperion logs?

Hi,

I 'm on the CoreELEC (official): nightly_20181231 (S912.arm).
I had created a udev rule but still nothing whith the USB grabber.

I try to use my Fushicai USBTV007. Whith lsusb i saw it (ID 1b71:3002).
Now i need the hauppauge drivers. Where i could get them ?

Thank you.

Drivers are not enabled on nightly builds, as they don’t fully work. However I could share one of my personal builds if you’re interested on testing it. Driver loads and capture device is recognized by Hyperion but I couldn’t get it capturing anything :frowning:

Hi,

I’m interrested by your proposal.

With the last official version and nightly it’s still not works.
:frowning:

Are there any news?
I have an Fushicai UTV007 and an STK1150 USB Video Grabber. I tried them both with Coreelec 9.0.2 stable, and nightly 20190519, with all three DVB drivers on my Odroid C2, but no combination showed a /dev/video0 output…
Anything else, I could try?
It would be nice, to have a grabber working with ambilight^^

Hi @all,

i have to update my C2. For now Libreelec 8 is installed, because for me it is nessessary to have a working “Fushicai USBTV007 Video Grabber [EasyCAP]” or “STK1150 USB Video Grabber”.

Have anyone succses to get the “Video Grabber” working?

Many Thanks!

I still got the same problem and had also to go to back to Libreelec 8.

Same here. I just moved from libreElec (Raspberry pi3) To odroid n2.
Ambilight works fine with internal grabber and apa102 leds connected to an arduino.

I want to have ambilight on external sources. Are there any news about this problem ?

ping @Portisch

I have no such a hardware. I guess the driver is missing.
Connect the USB grabber and post the output of lsusb on a SSH connection.

i think the problem is hyperion.ng !
i tried with normal hyperion and there the external grabber worked, but internal grabber made problems.

You all know that the hyperion.ng + Amlogic issue got solved a while ago?
I am not the developer of hyperion.ng so you may have to take a look to the hyperion forum.

I guess the external grabber is just not ported to hyperion.ng.

hmm ok maybe i need the newest hyperion.ng version.
How can i check what hyperion.ng version i have ?

i installed hyperion.ng from the coreELEC Repository. how is it workling ? when the hyperion.ng team releases a new version…do you have to update the addon in coreELEC? Or does the addon get automatically the newest version?

This is the last version used in CE repo:

I don’t know if a newer version include a external grabber. Newer versions are not compiling as a package is missing.
