#215 new defect

Vidix won't work on SiS650 device 1039:6325

Reported by: mpbz.20.degerrit1@… Owned by: reimar
Priority: normal Component: vo
Version: 1.0pre6 Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:

Reproduced by developer: Analyzed by developer:


I am using TV output only, on an MSI Hermes 650-P, SIS650 chip.

Using the RH RPMs* I get:
[SiS] Can't find chip

Using's SuSE RPM MPlayer-1.0pre6a-pm.2.i686.rpm, oddly, I
get another error:
[SiS] Found chip: Unknown chip (0x6325)

Skimming over the source code of sis_vid.c I can't find out what is going wrong,
the device should work I believe.

lspci -v -v (-n) for the VGA card:

the standard framebuffer until now. No sisfb, no X11.

I will give it a whirl, mind you I've never compiled Mplayer before so it may
take me a while. Thanks for the patch in any case.

Any news on this?

I never got around to compiling Mplayer for testing (still using fbdev), but I
can reproduce this on SuSE 9.3, kernel I wonder what the
provided patch would do though, since DEVICE_SIS_650_VGA should be equal to 0x6325.

vidix was recently overhauled, please try with svn to see if it works ;)

I have a problem with cvidix and a radeon card. I wish, I could try the "snapshot", but it would not even compile on my FreeBSD/amd64 box (using gcc42). Besides an obscene amount of warnings generated, there are problems with the i386 assembler code here:

{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:57: Error: `ff_h264_lps_range(%eax,%esi,2)' is not a valid 64 bit base/index expression
{standard input}:70: Error: `ff_h264_norm_shift(%esi)' is not a valid 64 bit base/index expression
{standard input}:72: Error: `ff_h264_mlps_state+128(%eax)' is not a valid 64 bit base/index expression
{standard input}:84: Error: `-1(%ebx)' is not a valid 64 bit base/index expression
{standard input}:87: Error: `ff_h264_norm_shift(%ecx)' is not a valid 64 bit base/index expression

A compilable (pre-)release is needed, so the software can be built first. Then, more obscure bugs can be ironed out...
