Postby Lifeview » Fri Jul 04, 2008 8:27 am

Hi, I'm new to LinuxThanks in advance. and i've recently installed Mint as my main OS. Everything work fine of my Analog TV + FM Tuner, a Lifeview PCI Card with a Philips SAA7133/SAA7135 Video Broadcast Decoder chip set.

I'm not sure if is useul...

Code: Select all

****@**** ~ $ lsmod | grep saa7134
saa7134_alsa 15424 0
snd_pcm 78596 4 snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,saa7134_alsa,snd_pcm_os s
saa7134 131920 1 saa7134_alsa
snd 56996 19 snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_seq _dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_rawmidi,saa7134_alsa,snd_pc m_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_ seq_device

videobuf_dma_sg 14980 2 saa7134_alsa,saa7134
videobuf_core 18820 2 saa7134,videobuf_dma_sg
ir_kbd_i2c 10768 1 saa7134
i2c_core 24832 3 saa7134,i2c_viapro,ir_kbd_i2c
ir_common 36100 2 saa7134,ir_kbd_i2c
videodev 29440 1 saa7134
v4l2_common 18304 2 saa7134,videodev
v4l1_compat 15492 2 saa7134,videodev

I'm a noob so explain to me the the easy way to get my tuner to work with VLC or any other program which allows tv & radio recording.

Thanks in advance.

PS. Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker.

PS2. Offtopic: Is there any Linux apps like DVD Decrypter and Vobrator?

You might be able to find an answer at this forum:

Go to the HTPC Linux Chat area.

Hope this helps.
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)
