View Full Version : [ubuntu] TV viewing frustration

June 1st, 2010, 05:17 AM
I have never been able to view live TV with Ubuntu. I have tried this with every new version for the last several releases with no success. I am using 10.4 now. My capture card is the Hauppauge PVR 150 which I believe has had built in kernel support for some time now. I have tried TV Time, XawTV, and Myth. None of those programs seems to even know I have a video capture card installed which by the way is perfectly functional in Windows. Today I disconnected all my other imaging devices such as scanner and web cam and reinstalled Lucid on the premise that the TV viewing programs in Ubuntu mentioned above were initialing to another device other than my capture card. Didn't make any difference.

Can you help me? I would rate myself somewhere between beginner and intermediate in my facility with linux. I know how to use terminal if someone gives clear directions and syntax but I have more trouble with the linux file structure. Thanks.
