i have an old athlon xp 2000+ 512 ram agp ati card I scored from work
i am trying to turn into a media center
so far it can play web video, dvds, and some othe media formats nicely.
i have ibex 8.10 32bit running smooth with compiz fusion 3d cube and a few other things.
its been great to have the net in the lounge all those vids on google.
the machine came with an old leadtek wintv xp 2000 RM with no remote
that just doesnt work for me on this box with ubuntu and tvtime
i tried doing a few modprobe changes to the tuner and card numbers using CARDLIST but it just didnt give me any signal i also set up tv time broadcast to my country with no luck
so i just removed it
a friend of mine another linux enthusiast gave me an old tv card he had lying around but no manual or packaging so i looked up the serial on the card ie tun900 XXXXXXXXXX-X
this card also didnt just work out the box and i have modprobed this card as well no signal however i have no way to determine if this card is saa7133 or yuan yuan whatever either
i found an old picture of the card reviewed a couple years ago on some ancient looking site and the manufacturer has discontinued the card
palit funtime smartvdo yadda yadda
my point is
i have now tried 2 cards with no luck and no way to test them in windows no driver exist for the tun card
and neither work in ubuntu
what cheap tv card can i get to work on this hardware with ubuntu??
my wirless keyboard and mouse make it sorta cool too but i wanna get a logitech MX air so I don't need a remote!
