View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setup tv tuner card with vlc.

August 28th, 2011, 04:59 AM
I have a sabrent tv tuner card (tv-pcirc). I want to use it in vlc but don't know how to change from the composite source to the tuner source and from there don't know how to change channels (is there a program that generates channels.conf for analog channels?) It would also like to know how to record a certain channel for a certain period via the telnet interface. Another thing I would like to know is how to set up the remote with it, because the audio is very soft and I would like to raise the voume.

My card is using card=42 tuner=43 if that helps.

Thanks in advanced

I can't get it working and I am running out of time. I would like to use it, but I get a cannot connect to master backend error if you know what to do, please reply to this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1833350). Otherwise help with vlc would be greatly appreciated.

You should use kaffeine or me-tv for TV viewing!!, they work the best for me!!.
