[Bug 1074763] Re: Hauppauge HVR-2200 saa7164_api_i2c_read() error, ret(1) = 0xc


Ubuntu 14.04 here with kernel 3.13.0-35-generic
with Hauppauge HVR-2200
used on MythTV 0.27.3

Still having similar issue....

This is what the problem starts out with in /var/log/kern.log

[157860.889756] Event timed out
[157860.889772] saa7164_api_i2c_read() error, ret(1) = 0x32
[157860.889781] tda10048_readreg: readreg error (ret == -5)

And then some instances of this:

[158001.548484] Event timed out
[158001.548501] saa7164_api_i2c_write() error, ret(1) = 0x32

[158001.548534] tda18271_set_params: [10-0060|M] error -5 on line 985

And then ends in repetition of the following until reboot:
[159111.601585] saa7164_api_i2c_write() error, ret(1) = 0x32
[159111.601593] tda10048_writereg: writereg error (ret == -5)

  Hauppauge HVR-2200 saa7164_api_i2c_read() error, ret(1) = 0xc

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Hauppauge HVR 2200 dual tuner TV card that uses the Steven
  Toth saa7164 driver.

  I use Mythbuntu and MythTV to record television. I just noticed that,
  since last Sunday, nothing has recorded. Live TV did not work. I
  checked dmesg/kern.log and it was full of these:

  [784356.796077] saa7164_api_i2c_read() error, ret(1) = 0xc
  [784356.796083] tda10048_readreg: readreg error (ret == -5)
  [784356.796091] saa7164_cmd_send() No free sequences

  Growing every second to the point that I have two ~4GB kern.log files
  and my machine filled nearly 80GB of free space with logs etc.

  I have restarted the machine and now it is working correctly.

  Looking around the internet, it seems that others have the same problem and it keeps recurring at random times after a reboot:

  I am using the latest Mythbuntu (which is 12.04).
