    I just want to watch tv in a window with my Hauppauge 1600

    Maybe this doesn't exist - but I'm looking for an app that will let me watch TV on my computer with my Hauppauge 1600 tv tuner card. I get digital tv from an antenna. I was using this in an XP box, but thought I'd try to upgrade. I've checked out MythTV, tvheadend, XBMC - tvheadend was close, but only work with analog signals. I don't want to dedicate my computer for this, I just want to watch TV when I'm not using it for NetFlix or movies in VLC.

    Any suggestions, posts I missed, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

    Or useful?

    Thanks for the suggestion of tvtime. I checked into it - the Hauppauge 1600 used the ivtv driver - which is mpeg2 based. Tvtime doesn't support mpeg2 - so couldn't watch live tv with that. At least that is how I read it.

    Don't know if something like me-tv would work.
    There's also Kaffeine.

    There are a couple of others, which I have forgotten about.

    Thread moved to Multimedia & Video.

    Me-TV. That's it. Has auto-scan so you don't need to set that up. It's in the repos. Install it and try.

    (deadflowr ninja-ed me!)

    PS: With the dongle plugged in, run this in a terminal:

    Me-TV or Kaffeine.

    Both very easy to setup.

    Should be: lspci

    The 1600 is a PCI card.
