    Search archived forum entries?

    Looking for an old post for user anewguy where he had a thread about the easycap video device and someone provided a solution. There is a user with a new thread on this and I can't find a post that old. Is there a way to search beyond the 250 thread count?

    Click on the "search" button at the top of the page here. You can enter keywords, and search for posts by a particular user. By doing that I got this

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...66&postcount=7

    Is that what you were after?

    Thanks! That was it! Not to sound stupid (but I am ), but how did you find that? I looked for user anewguy but I didn't see it - did I just miss it in the 10 pages that were returned?

    Thanks again!

    I think he also had his own thread asking about this and someone walked him through using a command line to capture video from the device. I think in his case he was copying from VHS to disk so he could back up his old movies.

    I use a couple of search engines - one of which is googlubuntu - there is a f/fox plugin for that

    a search for easycap and anewguy gets this result

    but how did you find that?
    Click on search, "easycap" as keyword and "anewguy" as "posts from user".

    I got 2 results, and the thread that the post in question was in was fortunately only about 7 posts long.

    Thanks very much! I also hope this helped the new user who was looking for help on the easycap device.
