New to Ubuntu, Purchased a HVR 1600 Hauppage Card, Was planning on using TVTime but i get an error CX18: cannot open capture device dev/video0 . So i tried VLC but, i can't change the channel i just get a pvr:// screen with static on it. Installed ivtv utils but i couldn't get that to work either. Basically i just want to stream from my card so i can play wii on my PC without having it record first, so there is no latency. Anyone have an easy solution?:confused:

Sure have a look at TV-Viewer (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=763698&page=14). This is an easy solution
