    [ubuntu] Re: TV/VCR Capture Software

    By the way, I know that the card is wired correctly to the dvr because the sound (and video) works in Vista. Before you ask me why I just don't use Vista, the answer is the Hauppage WinTV software...

    Much better. Almost there. I now have color video, but still no sound. Any hint as to what the problem with the sound could be?

    The /dev/vibi0 is the setting for the Kernel device. Any idea what that should be set to? Doesn't seem right to create a file /dev/vibi0 for this purpose.

    [ubuntu] Re: TV/VCR Capture Software

    Okay, I think many of my problems were the result of using a 64-bit version of Ubuntu. I dual booted the box by adding a new partition and installed a 32-bit version of 8.10 onto that. Installed...

    I set the output for the VCR to Channel 3. Still no joy on the card. The test.mpg file was large enough, but none of the players (KPlayer, mplayer, etc.) could read the file. The error messages...
