I'm trying to record some vhs videos to my hard drive. In some previous linux distributions, I haven't had any problems. I can't access /dev/video0 or video1. I do notice that on VL7 Standard, Video for Linux is installed. Sorry at this point I can't give information about what video capture card I have - but is there a basic step I may be missing. Do i need IVTV? I'm not interested in recording off TV. Usually "cat /dev/video0 > file.mpg" does the trick.
