View Full Version : [ubuntu] Pinnacle and tvtime

November 28th, 2009, 02:16 PM

I had Ubuntu 8.5 earlier and had used the following link to configure my Pinnacle tv tuner with tvtime


Right now I have formatted my system and come down to Karmic 9.10. Now I am having the problem of configuration. My tvtime does not seem to work. This is my lspci command output.

When I run tvtime it says

Reading configuration from /etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml
Reading configuration from /home/kumar/.tvtime/tvtime.xml
xvoutput: No XVIDEO port found which supports YUY2 images.

*** tvtime requires hardware YUY2 overlay support from your video card
*** driver. If you are using an older NVIDIA card (TNT2), then
*** this capability is only available with their binary drivers.
*** For some ATI cards, this feature may be found in the experimental
*** GATOS drivers: http://gatos.souceforge.net/
*** If unsure, please check with your distribution to see if your
*** X driver supports hardware overlay surfaces.

On googling I find many recommendations that the problem will be fixed on changing xorg.conf in /etc/X11 but in 9.10 I do not find any such file also. It is neither possible to guess a few files and create it as it might affect my display on reboot completely.

Kindly help.
