Firmware download stuck.. and never completes

Firmware download stuck.. and never completes

Postby diyhouse » Thu Feb 18, 2021 4:01 pm

I have a Ubuntu 20.04 system,.. with all the latest updates,.. as a base for a mythtv 0.31 system.
with a recent upgrade,.. to a quad TBS6904,.. and an old TBS6285,.. (previously I had a 2 channel SAT card 6982)

so two cards installed on PCI bus , 6904 and 6285. The cards appear to be working,.. well I can receive selected streams and successfully record them

On review of the dmesg and syslog files,.. my system seems to be stuck trying to complete its firmware downloads.
Code: Select All Code

Feb 18 07:46:17 mythtv0 kernel: [  801.930189] si2157 17-0062: firmware version: 2.1.9

These messages will repeat for hours, I have downloaded and run the latest drivers from github...
Any ideas folks as to what is wrong, what I may have messed up...

Many tx

Hi sir,
Do not worry about it.it just the drivers print info. it help us know the current fireware version of the chip. if you do not like it, you can try disable it on the drivers. then you just re-make and install the drivers.

Best Regards

Many tx for letting me know,.. I appreciate this is important info in the quest for debugging info,.. But two questions pls, If you don't mind,...
1. Where/which file do I edit to remove the messages,..
2. Can they be reduced,.. producing 4 per second in bursts seems a little OTT,.. or can they be reduced in frequency.

Many tx again
