View Full Version : [all variants] TV Card Questions

June 13th, 2009, 08:25 PM
I've got a Hauppauge WinTV-PCI-FM (34705) which works wonderfully under Windows XP (got no Vista Drivers though), and I want to install Linux on the machine.

I've used Linux a lot before, but I have absolutely no clue about TV cards, or the best program to use when/if the TV Card Driver actually DOES work. So can anyone give me any advice on how to find the driver, install it, and then a program to use once it's installed?

Most of the drivers come with the kernel so you shouldn't have to go looking for them. Have a look at the V4L Wiki (http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Main_Page) to see if you tv tuner card is supported, and if it is, how to make it work.
