Motion software / em28xx issue, fails with Watchdog timeout

Arch (3.8) detects Easycap (em28xx) device just fine, here’s dmesg log.

I confirm this issue is not only related to Arch, but also Debian Wheezy.
They detect Easycap dongle fine, but motion doen’t want to capture video from it.

Can you retest with v3.13-rc6?

Regards,

Hi and thanks for your reply.

I compiled the kernel and think everything went well - though the compiling was the first time for me.
Running Debian Wheezy and just replaced old kernel files and modules, result: no errors, so maybe the kernel configuration is ok?

Hi Robert,

Unfortunately 3.13-rc6 hasn’t resolved my similar issues with the stk1160 driver and an easycap dongle either…

Was worth a try though!
