    video capture with pinnacle dc10 tuner card

    Hi i have been able to view using TVtime television viewer but there is no sound. I really want to capture so VLC is i guess whats needed to do that. VLC seems to have changed a bit and all the google searching has shown me old pages that do not reflect the VLC of today. There is nothing in VLC that reveals what brand of tv tuner i have. This is an analogue tuner but that doesn't matter as i run the cables from the tv not the antenna. The digital set top box is plugged into the tv so it controls what channels i get and not the tuner card. I have done this with my windoze machine and another old tv tuner card. That card does not work in Linux and my research led me that the Pinnacle one does. Here is one of my pages that suggest it http://www.linuxcompatible.org/compa...lus_linux.html

    The other thing is too that the sound cables i have directly going card to tv now with the other tuner card in the windows machine there is an audio cable going to the sound card. From the tv tuner. If you know what i mean? So i am not sure i have this set up right. I have used so many tv tuner cards in the windoze environment but have not got one working yet in Linux. Oh maybe a hauppauge a few years back. Not sure. Anyway some advice would be appreciated :0)
    The card looks like this http://images03.olx.gr/ui/4/38/76/72...DC10-PLUS-.jpg

    My machine is a AMD dual core 64 3.2ghz, 4gb ram, Asrock N68-S3 UCC, 500gb sata x 2 drives, DC10plus pinnacle tv tuner

    I found a good use for this tv card. I got an outdoor surveillance camera and i am using Kamoso which is a webcam app to capture video or pictures for security reasons. Works pretty well. Just would love to get zoneminder working instead as it does motion detection.
    Still would like to capture tv though but no one seems to know how. That is odd as there are so many pages on the net that say it can be done. They are just not giving enough information for me to get it done :0(

    Well Komoso is great for capturing stills but for some reason is only taking limited sized videos. Always has a bug and i report the bugs but no better.

    Sorry i have never seen a record button in any version of vlc ever. Anyway the thing has to be set up first to know what it is capturing from etc. I can't see how to do that in this version.
    I don't know what you mean about clicking all controls?
