Thanks
Not quite easy to read though - could you edit it to be a bit clearer?

serbian_speed:

Thank you for this post.

I'm new at this,having just installed Mint a few days ago.

Thus,your examples are over my head.

Would you ,or someone else,please walk me through how to set up card number 82,listed under the saa713x heading?

((edit) The examples you gave above all contain the bttv chip set. Do the ones in the Philips saa 713x list have the tuner inferred,so that it does not have to go in the last command line?

Also,is the save a data (CTRL + X, then Y and Enter) shortcut the same as putting it in a text editor,saving it as the title,and then simply inserting the title?((end edit))

Thank you

I have a Kworld digital TV card. I installed Kaffeine using the package manager and restarted computer. Opened Kaffeine and was presented with a menu including watch television. It said the card supported auto tuning, but this did not do anything. I selected my region manualy (UK Granada) from list and away it went.

How easy can it get?

Re: List of support TV tuner card on Linux mint and How to

wbee,

try this:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options

then for my card which is a compro dvbt300 I add to the bottom:

# My TV Card
options saa7134 card=70 tuner=67

Change the card and tuner #;s to suit your card.
Then save the file and restart your pc.

Hope this helps.

I have the Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600, and am thinking about switching my media PC over to Mint 6. How do I find out which number to plug into the "tuner" variable?

Hi there,
What about USB tuners? I have a Kworld DVB-T 323UR hybrid tuner, I tried to install the em28xx drivers, but after reboot I see some errors in dmesg:
Code: Select all
[    8.612207] em28xx: Unknown symbol v4l_compat_translate_ioctl
[    8.612365] em28xx: Unknown symbol v4l2_video_std_construct
[    8.612732] em28xx: Unknown symbol v4l2_type_names
[    8.612881] em28xx: Unknown symbol v4l_printk_ioctl
[    8.613322] em28xx: Unknown symbol video_unregister_device
[    8.613472] em28xx: Unknown symbol video_device_alloc
[    8.613545] em28xx: Unknown symbol video_register_device
[    8.613950] em28xx: Unknown symbol video_usercopy
[    8.614023] em28xx: Unknown symbol video_device_release


Is there a better way to get the tuner working besides the em28xx drivers? I have Gloria on my PC.
Thanks, Laszlo

Hello,
I have a Hauppauge WinTV-4000 and Mint 7 fresh installed. I did some attempts in the past (Elyssa) but did not get it to work, then I read that the kernel.28 supports my card.
I followed your guide figuring out somehow (but I might be wrong) that card=34 and tuner=108 (where do you get these values, BTW?).
Then I launch Movie Player, click on Movie/Watch TV and get the message "Totem is missing a channel listing to be able to tune the receiver. Pleease follow the instructions provided in the link". WHICH link?!?
Please help me because I would like to get rid of the last Winzozz machine in my house...
Thank you.

Linux is still Linux. As I have said before, if your hardware does not work "out of the box" or with minimal configuration through a GUI, then it doesn't work. Easy, widespread TV card support is a couple of years away at least. Currently you will need good command line skills to iron out all the problems. To me this does not quallify as "working". This kind of universal hardware support is what you pay microsoft for when you buy XP or Vista. The message is that there will always be a place for Microsoft and the big brand name computer manufacturers. When TV cards become a must have in a new computer then we may see better, easier to use programs written by the talented folks who drive the Linux word. I wouldn't hold your breath though, 'cause I don't think they have much time to watch telly :wink: I have an Asustek Hybrid TV card that shows pictures under various flavours of Linux, but no sound. Plenty of discussion on forums for other distros yielded no solution to the problem. WIndows is fine for watching TV, as you can run it under a restricted user, and you do not have to have an active internet connection or have windows update or any other nasties running. My advice would be don't waste your time on TV cards in Linux unless it is a hobby for you that you enjoy spending time on.

That's a pretty long list of supported cards to make that statement, though maybe you're just trolling.

Just because Linux doesn't load every module from the start doesn't really mean a card isn't supported. If Linux loaded a boat load of random un-needed drivers at boot time we would have to start calling it Windows.

All anyone needs to do is spend 5 minutes researching cards that are well supported in Linux and they can then just skip all the bs and be perfectly happy watching TV in Linux.
Every current kernel supports this card and it, along with Myth TV is pretty awesome IMO.

Having said all of that though, Anyone who wants to make a PC a media center is obviously doing it because they enjoy tinkering whether or not they're running Linux. Otherwise they'd just buy a Tivo and get on with it.

Re: List of support TV tuner card on Linux mint and How to

Hi guys,i'm completely new to linux/mint and was wondering.
If i have the correct tuner (71) but don't have a card in the list,then would it still work?
I'm guessing not because i would need a card number right?
My card is not auto-detected.

The card is a compro u2800f it has the Xceive xc3028l tuner and a Trident tvmaster tm6010??? i guess that that's what the card number is for?
I have searched around for cards with the Tvmaster chip and cannot find any.
It shows up in lusb as 185b:2800 compro but thats about the extent of my knowledge in installing cards

Probably answered my own question but worth a try,thanks guys

Edit: okay, i have discovered that a Haupage 900h uses the same chipsets as my card but i cant find a start to finish guide on installing those drivers.
Can anybody help?

Universal does not mean only that which is supported by us, it means all (dictionary..)
--perhaps that is just loose terminology you are using, but it is also an inaccurate statement.

OK very interesting but what does it all mean?
I have a Leadteck card with a connexant cx8800 chipset that is found but not recognised. I get get a list of possible options with card=# but I don't have a /etc/modules.conf nor anything else that has a lot to do with dvb-t.
dmesg suggests insmod with card=# option. What is that? How do I get the module to load? How do I get to even have a modules.conf file? What little hair I have left is rapidly receding.
Help :x

Unfortunately I can only find one Conexant entry above (tuner=44 - Philips 4 in 1 (ATI TV Wonder Pro/Conexant)) and that is not your card
This is the closest to a solution I have found
