[SOLVED] Hauppage 2250 firmware fail to upload in Mythtv

Moving a Mythtv from Ubuntu to Manjaro, backend requires drivers.https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-HVR-2200

These are the same that worked in Ubuntu (for over 5 years), but when loaded into /lib/firmware they fail to load, from journalctl -b 0

Trying the alternative directory /lib/firmware/4.19.36-1-MANJARO/ also failed.

From the wiki you posted, for that error, you have to:

You might have to:
sudo cp v4l-saa7164-1.0.2.fw /lib/firmware/4.19.36-1-MANJARO
sudo cp v4l-saa7164-1.0.3.fw /lib/firmware/4.19.36-1-MANJARO
sudo cp dvb-fe-tda10048-1.0.fw /lib/firmware/4.19.36-1-MANJARO

but/and also
sudo cp NXP7164-2010-03-10.1.fw /lib/firmware

Worked right off the bat..!

It was NXP7164-2010-03-10.1.fw that was missing.

Thanks..!
