I’m trying to use a cam with a reader (attached) for to view Tivùsat on xubuntu 14.04.2 kernel 3.16.0-38-generic
When i try to scan the cams i correctly see the one plugged in.
ca0 demux0 dvr0 frontend0 net0
dmesg | grep -i dvb
[ 15.843520] DVB: registering new adapter (Satelco EasyWatch DVB-S)
[ 16.466335] budget_av 0000:03:06.0: DVB: registering adapter 0 frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)…
[ 23.420283] dvb_ca adapter 0: DVB CAM detected and initialised successfully
But when i try to find the reader both using gcriptor or scan scp i can’t find a reader.
PC/SC device scanner
V 1.4.22 (c) 2001-2011, Ludovic Rousseau
Compiled with PC/SC lite version: 1.8.10
Using reader plug’n play mechanism
Scanning present readers…
Waiting for the first reader…
Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry at /usr/bin/gscriptor line 439.
No smart card readers found.
Since i couldn’t find a clue about that in internet i thought to email you.
If you have experience about that can you give me a tip about how to face this problem?
thank you very much.
It does not look like a problem of the pcsc-tools or gscriptor, but more like a problem with the kernel driver, which says “initialised successfully” but apparently didn’t do so.
Could you please perform a hardware-scan (see http://www.linux-hardware-guide.com/add-hardware) to gather more information about your system. Currently it is hard to get an idea what to search for.
