    Can't configure TVTime

    I'm trying to get TVTime working but I am not getting anywhere. I am using a PEAK 138508AGPK DVB-T Digital TV Hybrid PCI Card TV Card.
    I have connected it to my video recorder which has a Virgin TiVo box connected. It can't detect a signal, what do I need to do as I am completely stumped.
    To help, for any settings needed, I am in UK.

    Hey pooky2483,
    Maybe give some more details about your setup…
    I would first check for the obvious, i.e. settings. In Media, go to Open capture device and check that it appears there. Now go to Input Configuration > Change Video Source and make sure your source is set. In Channel management, go to Change Frequency table > Select new table and setup your frequencies table; next, go to Scan channels for signal.
    That should at least give you some indication where your error is (process of elimination ). Also, have you tries the tvtime site – the help and faq & common errors sections are pretty useful.
    Hope this helps (or you’ve already solved it…), Cintia

    tvtime doesn't work with dvb afaik, but perhaps if you have a hybrid card you are trying to grab an analog signal from somewhere, or perhaps a composite signal? What are your video devices in /dev/video? You will probably need to set the composite input from within tvtime to get a picture from your video recorder.

    It worked ok when I had Window$ but I don't use that any more.
    I am using an analog signal.
    How can I find out what's in /dev/video
