Function CPVRWrapper::GetDevTotal returns zero recording devices. So I assume that we don't have necessary hardware (or at least code to work with it) on Trident C550 models to use PVR/TimeShift. And comparing exeDSP of C650 with ours - we don't have necessary functions like formatting to XFS for PVR.
So I think that it is impossible to "turn PVR on" in Trident C550 devices via simple ways. It may be possible to make it working via adding code to exeDSP (for example via hooking tuner data decoded by the second MIPS CPU), but this would be really impossible as we don't have specifications for this hardware: http://www.tridentmicro.com/producttree ... dtv-pro-sx
I'm talking about Trident-based C550. MStar-based have different exeDSP and I never looked into it.
So, obviously, MStar C550 have the same limitations as trident has, and you can't enable PVR there too.gabbek wrote:I have an MStar-based LE40C550 and I've managed to turn on PVR in extended menu, but still nothing happens when I push the record button
Just for information: PVR requires XFS-formatted device. And C550 does not have XFS fiesystem support in kernel.Is there any special requirement for usb hdd? NTFS is ok? Or should I use fat32 or ext3?

No. exeDSP does not have necessary code. And nowhere to take it from. Maybe when Samsung would release D-series TVs on Trident we would be able to steal code from there.erdem_ua wrote:So we could recompile kernel with XFS support, or just using XFS modules might shows the magic...
After insmod xfs.ko and enabled PVR on service/hotel menu, will PVR work?Just for information: PVR requires XFS-formatted device. And C550 does not have XFS fiesystem support in kernel.
with xfs formated USB disk?
I read forum and know about HW limitation, I have another PVR device, but...
