The operating system recognizes my tv tuner card but needs something else. Someone on the Unbuntu forum sent me the information I need,for which I thank him. But I can not make it "stick",which is,of course,my fault.
((Deep breath)) Here goes:
Type into terminal:
sudo lshw -C multimedia
(enter password the card shows up)
Put into a text editor and copy:
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 saa7134
options saa7134 card=17
Then I saved it as saa7134,to my home folder. Is that the right place to save it?
((edit)) Or should I have gone into the file system,and if so,where should I have directed the file?((close edit))
sudo cp saa7134 /etc/modprobe.d/
******My question,what do I add after .d/ above to get it to work?
my root is /root
my name is /wbee
my home is /home
the folder is /saa7134
