    MSI TV @nywhere

    Hi Forum,

    i am pretty new to TV on linux and i'm kinda stuck. I have a MSI TV @nywhere Pro PCI and I am trying to get television working.
    I tested xawtv and tvtime and neither is able to find any channels, i guess it's because they can't open the card's tuner. Does anyone know which tuner this card is using? Or am i just doing anything totally wrong?

    I hope anyone can give me some directions.

    Regards, Azr@el

    Re: MSI TV @nywhere

    Ive got one of those cards, mine uses a Microtuner MT2032, but yours may be different. I also had to unsolder the metal shield above the tuner chip to visually see what number it was, the tuner chip is the one closest to the coax cable connector and it has (usually) a metal shield covering it up.

    Other common tuner types for MSI cards are some kind of Phillips tuner.
    I guess you just have to look. I can't find any command that lists the type of tuner, only the chipset id'd by lspci

    Hi

    Thanks for your response, though i'm not likely to fumble that shield off, for it's my girlfriend's card and she furiously protects her hardware from me
    Any non-electronical hints?

    Regards, Azr@el

    PS: Are we sure that the missing tuner info is causing this issue?

    Re: MSI TV @nywhere

    Hi

    So, i managed to get my hands on that metal shield. Turns out that i have number 61 from the CARDLIST.tuner: TNF 9533

    I am wondering how to proceed, still i don't get any channels in kdetv, tvtime does not "find any tuner on input 61". Any hints or papers to point me into the right direction?

    Regards, Azr@el
