    Pinnacle Pctv Stereo Problem

    HI,

    I have Pinnacle PCTV Stereo Card for watching tv. It works fine in Windows. In Linux it is detected. But I want to know that how to watch tv?
    Skype detected a device Pinnacle pctv Stereo. Therefore I know it is detected.
    I tried. xine, tvtime, xawtv, mythtv. But failed. However one time mythtv showed some picture in poor quality without sound. mythtv is very hard to configure.

    I just want a simple software that can recieve signals from pctv stereo card. I have Dish Tv on my home therefore my card recieves only 1 channel. To watch more channel I use my dishtv remote.

    Could you please tell the specific model no of your tvtuner device.

    It seems that most of the Pinnacle products are well supported in Linux. You may have to give the correct tuner no while loading the modules.

    I own a Pinnacle PCTV USB2 works very well in tvtime.

    In the box of my tv tuner card only "Pinnacle PCTV Stereo" is given. It is an internal PCI card.
    How to find its exact model number?
