  1. [ubuntu] Nvidia GTS 250 not working correctly in 10.04

    Have searched through numerous posts and forums but haven't yet come up with a fix for this one!

    Hi Arron,

    You can use Video4Linux and VideoLan for the purpose until saedelaere manages to update TV-Viewer (keep up the good work saedelaere). The details below are what I use:

    You may be better off posting this in a PHP forum rather than here, as you are more likely to get responses from people who know PHP (as it's a PHP question, not a Ubuntu question).

    Re: Updating to 8.04.1

    Well, having tried, several times now, to upgrade my Acer Travelmate 630 to 8.04 (from 7.10), I've finally come to the conclusion that 8.04 doesn't work on this laptop.

    7.10 was working great but...

    I'm glad someone else has found it useful. I've also used Gnome Schedule 2.0.2 to set up cron templates for PVR scheduled recording and channel changing. If anyone is interested in that, let me know...

    [ubuntu] Re: How to make ubuntu look just like mac

    Why do people get so bogged down into trying to make something look like something else? I think it's great that it doesn't look like either (MS or APPLE). Why not spend time and effort making it...

    My understanding is that it makes certain modifications to Firefox to integrate more with Ubuntu/Apt for easier handling of Addons/Extensions installation

    VLC has deinterlace, I don't think Mplayer has

    [ubuntu] Re: Linux box using as a vcr

    Alternatively, you can use v4l2 to control the card (I use these methods personally):

    The device setting (usually) for Hauppauge PVR-150: /dev/video0:


    v4l2-ctl --device=/dev/video0

    Phew! Finally figured out how to get VLC to display the stream whilst recording:

    As an alternative/addition to above, I've also now figured out the command to enable VLC to display the stream whilst recording:

  14. [all variants] Re: Command to change PVR-150 from tuner to composite in myplayer or cat

    Sorry, that's my fault - confusing you with my thought processes.

    The command is:
    v4l2-ctl
    the parameter is
    -input

    So, the complete command with parameter is:
    v4l2-ctl --set-input=0 (for...

    v4l2 (vee four el two)
    Video 4 Linux. (v2) - it's a driver not a command.

    v4l2-ctl is used to get/set the driver parameters/settings

    To list the parameters:

    Hi,

    This is the very issue I've been working on. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=763698&page=3 Post #23

    You can change between inputs using "v4l2-input" - as per the above post. There...

    After a bit more detective work and trial&error, I've managed to get the command-line channel changing sorted (using VLC and v4l2 instead of ivtv-tune) - also worked out how to use the composite...
  18. [all variants] Re: [TIP] TV-Viewer, GUI for Hauppauge PVR and other ivtv based TV cards.

    I've just tried this method and all I get is static on all channels - when I use TV-Viewer, it changes channels correctly

    PS. It's ivtv-tune (with a hyphen).
