    Video Capture Device. How to set up and use?

    Please help.
    There is one video capture device in my computer: KWORLD PCI Analog TV Card II Lite.
    Aim: capture video stream from VHS.

    And now I have no idea how to set it up.
    I've found some information in Internet, but either it too complicated or not helping for my case.
    Some information:

    $ lspci -vnn

    I've tried to play video via VLC: Media -> Open Capture Device... -> TV-Analog
    MRL: v4l2:///dev/video0

    But there was nothing to output: no picture, no sound, no errors. Just seconds count.

    TV-Digital option I did not understand at all. Too much options and no clues on what to check. But in any case I've got an errors like this one:

    Your input can't be opened:
    VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvb-c://frequency=0000:modulation=QAM:srate=0'. Check the log for details.

    Please help and thanks in advance!

    Re: Video Capture Device. How to set up and use?

    It seems your card isn't recognized.
    Not unusual really, quite a few tv capture cards aren't supported on linux.
    I have a kworld pci 150-u and support for it came initially with a patch around the 3.0 kernel ( I think) and it was integrated into the kernel around 3.4.
    It had been on the market for a few years at that point.

    I found this
    http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.ph...g_TV_Card_Lite
    but it seems to be a different card than yours.

    The sad reality is that those able to write drivers/modules for these cards need to have access to them.

    Re: Video Capture Device. How to set up and use?

    Well... sad information is also an information...
    I've already saw that article and tried to type this in termianl:
    $sudo modprobe saa7134 card=63 tuner=43
    (the only thing I understood) before posting, and reboot system... but didn't understand whether it gave me something.
    Device in that article looks like very similar, but with differences of course.
    I wish there was another solution but dual boot...

    Thank you for your reply.

    Hi madbrozzer.

    I'm installing this device right now (a "Philips Semiconductors SAA7134/SAA7135HL Video Broadcast Decoder", but from Encore, not KWORLD), and IT WORKS FINE (ubuntu 14.04).

    Just plug in thew card, install "tvtime" for tv and "gnomeradio" for radio.

    There are some configs you gotta set up before everything works ok, but that should be all you need to install.

    Things you need to know:

    1) My encore card said, even in its manuals, that in order for audio to work, you need to plu a cable from the card's audio output to the pc sound card line input. That is, a cable bridge. I'm working right now on some way of configure a loopback setup instead of this, but that should be enough for starters. Also, beware of enabling the line input, from alsamixer or ubuntu's sound controls. In alsamixer, the "m" keyboard key enables and disables a channel

    2) As it had no default setup files for my country (Argentina), tvtime told me to run tvtime-scanner once, in order to detect the channels frequency. Also, i had to guess (by trial and error) the country's signal format (some special form of PAL). You got to configure that according to your country's setup.

    3) In this pc i had a few silly problems: speakers were not working... and i though it was a problem of the capture card :/.
    Trying to solve this non-problem, i also changed modprobe configurations, that i don't know if were ultimately required or not.
    What i did was this:

    a) Created a "/etc/modprobe.d/saa7134.conf" file with this sole content: "options saa7134 i2c_scan=1"
    b) I ran this other commands, and restarted my system:
    sudo modprobe -vr saa7134_dvb
    sudo modprobe -vr saa7134_alsa
    sudo modprobe -vr saa7134
    sudo modprobe -v saa7134 card=40


    Hope it helps.
    The client with the knife is always right.
