I've installed the 64-bit LinuxMint/Debian distro on my AMD64 system with GeForce 6150 graphics chip and WinTV HR1600 tv card. Things work great except for being able to watch TV with the VLC-PVR function for the WinTV setup.
VLC works fine when playing DVD's or MP3's, but when I try to use it to watch TV I get the following message:
"Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'pvr://'. Check the log for details."
I'm not sure what log - I did look at a systems log but nothing jumped out at me. I did notice that when installing the distro, it "burped" when trying to install the cx18 driver for the Conextant chip used for the WinTV card. I'm not sure it was installed. I did download and try to install a cx18 driver but it had no effect.
I can use Ubuntu 10.10 and LinuxMint-10 fine for this function, but I'd really like to use the Debian-based one. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for your help.
