    Re: Getting TV Tunner card working

    Thanks, got it working.

    But no sound yet, i increase volume, but only hissing shound increases, TV tunner card is connected to Sound card line-in.

    Also video quality is bad (most channels have lost it colours, displayed near black and white). On same computer, if i boot to windows the TV tuner card works fine with every channel displayed in proper colour.

    Any idea how to fix the problem ?
