SYNOPSIS

hdpvr

DESCRIPTION

The hdpvr driver supports the Hauppauge HD-PVR, a USB device that captures the component video outputs and analog/optical audio outputs of consumer devices such as cable/satellite set-top-boxes, HD disk players, and video game consoles. The HD-PVR captures video via component output, permitting the capture of HD video from most sources. Since component video cannot be encrypted, satellite and premium television can be fully accessible to applications such as MythTV.

Devices using the hdpvr driver become available to other applications once webcamd(8) is loaded.

HARDWARE

The hdpvr driver should work with the following USB devices. The usbconfig(8) command can be used to determine the VendorID:ProductID of a plugged in USB device.

VendorID:ProductID      Device
2040:4900      Hauppauge HD-PVR
2040:4901      Hauppauge HD-PVR
2040:4902      Hauppauge HD-PVR
2040:4903      Hauppauge HD-PVR
2040:4982      Hauppauge HD-PVR
 

Newer ProductIDs may also be supported by adding them to the hdpvr.h and hdpvr-core.c files found within the work/ subdirectory of the webcamd ports directory. If this directory does not exist, run "make extract" in /usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd, edit the files, then compile the port.

CAVEATS

Firmware upgrades must be run from a Windows system. If you have a "rev c1" unit you must install the HD-PVR at least once on a Windows machine to load the firmware into it. If you have a Revision 2 unit (including a sticker marked "rev c2" on the bottom of the unit) then it will come loaded with a firmware.
