I have an Elgato Eye TV Hybrid that I bought used a while back. I was never able to get it to work on Linux. this time howver i found a repo for Haupagedevices and installed it. It is seen as a capture device now

The device identifiers itsel with lsusb as follows:

2040:6513 Hauppauge WinTV HVR-980


The problem I seem to be having is that this device should be ATSC and Kaffeine and Me-tv keep saying it is QAM and as I understand it it is both .

The user on this thread , confirms that it should do ATSC, as it has the same USB ID and description. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=102051

Truth be told I am less interested in the tuner than the composite input, but it looks like I need to scan inputs to be able to access the composite input?

I tried VLC and see no way to set to composite input

Any help appreciated.
