View Full Version : [ubuntu] Tuner card issues? TVTime?

May 5th, 2008, 09:44 PM
Tvtime doesn't work. When I run it I get: ivtv invalid argument, NO video source, No signal.

But I can tune into tv with Mplayer. What's going on?

I have a hauppauge wintv pvr pci II 26xx tuner card according to Windows XP. I'm running ubuntu 8.04 LTS

I've tried mythtv and that was a disaster. I spent alot of time messing with that and it never worked. So please don't suggest using that product unless you have an idea of why it may not have worked for me.

If your PVR card emits MPEG-2 video data then TVTime doesn't work according to this page:


(look in the ivtv section).
