    Re: Getting my video capture card recognized

    your card is recognized already. ubuntu sees it. read on to watch tv.

    I have a Hauppauge pvr150 card running on my hardy box, and I get tv by:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ivtv-utils
    open VLC player

    File -> Open Capture Device -> PVR -> OK

    then you can do (in terminal)

    Code:
    ivtv-tune -c25
    (25 is channel number)

    which changes the channel.

    Code:
    ivtv-tune -h
    to see the options which control the card.


    for a cool desktop tv remote,(so you dont have to use terminal to change channels) go to: http://tvremote.sourceforge.net/

    remember to have java installed first. then you can right click: open with java.

    to record tv:

    Code:
    cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/name_of_file.mpg
    it will record whatever channel you are on. then ctrl-c to stop.

    Thanks for your help.
    Now I've got it displaying but it won't change channels.
    Any suggestions would help.
    I've tried typing the changes in the terminal, but it still stays on ch4.

    I removed my webcam and reinstalled my card and it's working now.
