Hello Everyone,
Is there any hardware documentation for Ubuntu?
I am trying to find out if one of these cards work with Breezy 32bit.
-Hauppauge WinTV USB Model 40011 or
-ADS Instant Video MPX USBAV-708

Bump I guess.
The Wiki is kinda outdated and it didnt list these.
Anyone know if the ADS or WinTV USB models will work?

Ubuntu 5.10 - driver usbvision for Hauppage WinTV USB

1- Go to http://usbvision.sourceforge.net/ and dowload the sources
(version can't be compiled under Ubuntu 5.10, you have to download v0.9.8.2)

Here's the direct link for lazy people

2- Save it in your home directory

3- In Synaptic, enable the Universe repository

4- You need to install make, gcc-3.4, linux-headers; you need also "zapping" to watch tv.
You have to complile and install the module, then you may add a script to load it during startup

Open a console window, then type:
(please note that the character ` is not ' and it can be obtained with AltGr+' - anyway, you may just copy and paste the following lines)

sudo apt-get install make gcc-3.4 linux-headers-`uname -r` zapping
tar -xf usbvision-
cd usbvision-
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe usbvision
echo -e "modprobe usbvision\n" >usbvision
sudo cp usbvision /etc/init.d
cd /etc/init.d
sudo chmod 755 usbvision
sudo update-rc.d usbvision start 51 S .

( . at the end of the line is needed!)

4- Connect the WinTV USB card, and run zapping (it should be in the Audio&Video menu)
