[Bug 1357632] Re: HVR-950Q Display Glitches


Its too late.  I've switched distros and all sorts of stuff since then.
Somewhere along the line, an update of some sort has fixed it. I don't
know if its was a video driver or kernel update or what, but its was
working last I used it.  I ended up giving it to my dad who runs it on
his laptop (also Linux) so he can watch his news while he works on his

Thanks anyway!

  HVR-950Q Display Glitches

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a USB TV Tuner - Hauppage HVR-950Q with USB ID 2040:7217

  It has an odd display glitch which is hard to describe.  I can post
  screen-grabs but its intermittant, yet constant.  What I mean is that
  it occurs every couple of seconds, but not every frame.  It's less
  noticeable with tvtime, but is noticeable in all video applications
  trying to display from this tuner.   I have tried different USB ports
  and changing kernels and changing other USB devices.  I can make the
  problem go away by transcoding a video with Handbrake - this eats up a
  lot of CPU time and this seems to resolve the problem (race

  This is VERY annoying.  My poor laptop is being thrashed by having to
  transcode a video everytime I want to watch TV.   If anyone can help,
  it would be greatly appreciated.
