    Hey everyone, I have been using this project on my raspberry pi for the last few years with little issues and have finally gone down the route of using a video grabber for my other devices. I have the Easycap USBTV007 chipset and Hyperion just seems to throw Error 2 every time I try to start Hyperion using it. But if I change my condo back to use the internal grabber, then my lights work fine. Is there a step I may have missed or something I should try? Thanks in advance!

    I have tried lsusb command and this is what I get, does this mean the seller sold me a fake USBTV007?

    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 534d:0021

    Devices 001, 002 and 003 seem to show microsystems corp and Linux foundation. However I’m not seeing USBTV007 pop up like others do. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have also tried the the command ‘ ls -lh /dev/ ‘ and cannot find video0 in the outputted list. Does all of this mean perhaps Iv been sold a fake USBTV007?

    Thanks TPmodding for the reply :) I am fairly certain my supply is a 2.5A and I have activated max usb current in my raspberry pi config.

    did you try plugging grabber on the PC ?
    if PC recognises it than you may have power issue try sending 5v directly from external PSU to USB port similar to this :
