Re: Convert VHS to DVD

Thanks v much for your response. There is some useful info there but the hardware side of it is not so useful. He uses his camera to translate from RCA to firewire but I don't have a camera that would do that for me. I suspect that I'll have to splash out for a USB gadget that translates the RCA+aud...

Convert VHS to DVD

I have an old VHS tape that I want to convert to a digital format. My VHS player has Scart output and the "audio" style (is that RCA?) of leads. I think I need some sort of device to plug this into to digitize the stream, which I hopefully can then capture with VLC. Can anyone recommend an inexpensi...

Canon MG7700 series and Mint 18 Cinnamon

I have acquired a Canon MG7752, which is a part of the MG7700 series. Took a bit of a punt with this, being a Canon, but thought I'd try on two accounts. Firstly Canon say it does have limited support (in other parts of the world, not Europe) and secondly Gutenprint says its supported, albeit experi...

Re: PCTV 292e Tuner not working after upgrading Mint 17 to 18

Success! I have now got this tuner to work. The problem was the initial scan file. I think the supplied one may be a little out of date. When I substituted my working one from Mint17, tvheadend started working and finding services. I still need to install the tvheadend PVR client for Kodi but we're ...

Re: PCTV 292e Tuner not working after upgrading Mint 17 to 18

I have made some progress in my diagnostics for this problem. It turns out that the error message "main:2745: FATAL: failed to open '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0': 16 Device or resource busy" means unsurprisingly exactly what it says. Tvheadend had grabbed the tuner, and so w_scan couldn't scan it. T...

[SOLVED] PCTV 292e Tuner not working after upgrading Mint 17 to 18

I have a computer which is dual boot, linuxmint 17 and a fresh install of linuxmint 18 Cinnamon. My tv tuner is the PCTV 292e tuner, which on Mint 17 I used with tvheadend and Kodi. I am using this with a terrestrial aerial. This install was just about as "out the box" as it gets. I did a fresh inst...

MSI DigiVox-mini-II v3.0 suddenly not working

'Scuse my lack of technical prowess here, I'm pretty much a noob at this kind of thing.... Since the last install of upgrades, my dvb tuner has suddenly ceased to work. Its a MSI DigiVox-mini-II v3.0 based on the af9015 chip. For the last few versions of Mint its always worked out the box with no pr...

Re: Mint 14 + 17 on the same disk

Thank you so much for your advice. I have followed it and installed Mint17 exactly as you suggested - on /dev/sda4 with the bootloader on the efi partition - and it all came good first time. Just as you suggested, on boot it defaults to Mint17, which is exactly what I wanted. In my /boot/efi/EFI/ di...

Mint 14 + 17 on the same disk

I have currently a dual-boot UEFI system. One system is Mint 14, the other is Kubuntu, on the same physical disk. I need to update Mint 14 to Mint 17. As I use Kubuntu rarely, I thought the best thing would be to overwrite the Kubuntu partition with the new Mint 17, then when I'm happy with 17 (I al...
