TV tuner information please.
« on: February 28, 2012, 08:49:13 am »
Can anybody out there tell me what TV tuner card(s) actually work with Vector Linux 7.0, the one I have is a model SAA7130 and I can't seem to get it to work with Vector Linux 7.0, even  though I COULD get it to work under Windows. Although I DID recently purchase a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1950 usb tuner, which I have been trying to get to work with my system (it needs a package called "LinuxTV" which, unfortunately, isn't in the repositories as of yet :( ).

If this is not too late, or for future references.
bt878 works:
Code: [Select]
lspci
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) A
C'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
01:04.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (
rev 11)
01:04.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11
)
I can watch tv with mplayer no problem, sound needs a bit tweaking, let me know if you actually need the info.
