Dear Community,

I'm writing to You because I've got a card from Your list -> 34. card=34 - Leadtek WinFast 2000/ WinFast 2000 XP -> its almost perfect working. I've got all my channels and get pictures too - but there is no sound. My volume levels are ok - everything is on 100% and unmuted in alsamixer.

Please help me getting the sound in TVtime or XawTV!

Thank You!

Have you checked out the 'sound preferences' in the right click on the sound icon. I know i have options to use a few things from my pvr card, gpu and built in. picking proper analogue or digital in the hardware tab and 'output' tabs is important. I had gotten myself into a dither because i forgot to switch from the hdmi/digital to the speakers /analogue settings. simple for my issue
hope yours is so simple
John

Thanks for the reply - I've tried all of the options in the sound properties but the sound still muted. :S

Any other tips for getting unmute the sound with TVTIME or XAWTV? I think it need to be a small problem - because this tuner card worked completely with picture and sound before - for example Ubuntu 7.04 and 8.04 too.

And another problem with another computer and tuner card - please help someone -> I've got an AVerTV Hybrid Volar HD - H830 - and I need install this to my Linux Mint 18 x64. How to do this?

Many thanks!

Hi all,

for those who are still looking for a USB TV tuner that just works in Linux.

I went herehttp://www.hauppauge.co.uk/site/products/data_292e.html

PCTV tripleStick HD 292e TV Tuner

Click on the Linux tab. Linux support for the PCTV 292e is in kernel 3.16.

Click on the link “for more information see here”

Firmware. dvb-demod-si2168-b40-01.fw from the link "openelec soursetree"

Make sure you download the correct firmware. Copy the firmware into /lib/firmware.

Plug in the Triple Stick and boot your computer. Open Kaffeine and scan for channels. Job done.

Very pleased.

Best regards Keith

Not sure that this is the right topic to ask... if not just say it:)
The question is that if the PCI DVB S2 card will do for single core CPU and if the quality of the stream could be decreased for saving recourses.
Or am leaving to watch SD quality channels only. So which DVB S2 is best for my system?

Hi

I have a Medion Akoya "All-In-One" PC with Linux Mint on it. One of the features of this PC is the integrated TV Tuner Card and webcam.

I'm told by Medion that the TV card is the Creatix CTX1920 miniPCIe and the Webcam is an Azurwave AM-1C025. The TV card, apparently has a The card has a Philipps/NXP/Trident SAA7231 chip inside.

Has anyone seen drivers for these, or know of any generic Linux drivers which will bring these component parts of my PC into action please? Has anyone any experience with these? https://linuxtv.org/downloads/drivers/

Please bear in mind my Linux expertise is at the foot of the learning curve. Please be gentle with the tech-speak lol.

Thanks in advance

Martin

Hello all !

Don't miss TBS tuners, usb, PCI or PCIe. They have HDTV boxes too. They all dedicated to work under linux.

I've one PCIe installed. Work like a charm under my brand new Linux Mint !
