11:41 <PovAddict> anyone here have experience with TV tuner cards and Linux?

11:58 <hawmps> long ago... it was a cable type adapter

12:03 <PovAddict> I have one that has TV tuner (coaxial cable), composite video (yellow RCA connector), and FM radio tuner

12:04 <PovAddict> months ago I got the TV tuner to "work" (noisy monochrome image and got few channels) on Linux after loading the kernel module with special parameters...

12:05 <hawmps> some of them work very nicely.. any of the recommended cards for 'myth tv' are the ones you want to look at.

12:06 <hawmps> all of the pieces-parts for video4linux are required.

12:06 <PovAddict> the kernel detects an UNKNOWN/UNKNOWN device with a SAA7130 chip

12:07 <PovAddict> vlc debug messages say only video capture is supported (no tuner or radio), but even that doesn't work

12:08 <hawmps> elgono is the real V4L expert

12:08 <PovAddict> oh, good call

12:09 <PovAddict> I have a large stack of 8mm tapes to convert to digital

12:09 <hawmps> you need to correct the modules.conf with the right device ingot for the SA7

12:09 <hawmps> er.. info, that is..

12:11 <hawmps> info >>

12:11 <Romulus> <> (at

12:11 <hawmps> modprobe saa7134 card=3

12:12 <hawmps> (SAA7130 TV tuner card under Linux. How To.)

12:12 <PovAddict> I need to re-find the proper card= value

12:13 <hawmps> rmmod saa7134_alsa saa7134_dvb saa7134

12:15 <PovAddict> with card=3 and loading input 2 in vlc, I see the composite video input, but it's pretty disorted

12:15 <PovAddict> PAL vs NTSC mismatch, looks good now

12:16 <PovAddict> damn, the interlacing is painful

13:08 <RomW> @Pov, have you given the latest in trunk a try? It should correctly state that a GPU task needs some more VRAM now

13:13 <PovAddict> fighting other hardware atm

13:13 <RomW> oh

13:13 <RomW> okay

13:14 <PovAddict> and myself

13:14 <PovAddict> I have a pile of 8mm tapes to convert to digital video

13:14 <RomW> ick

13:15 <yoyo[RKN]> moin

13:15 <PovAddict> hard to get capture card and recording working on Linux, and hard to test when I can't stand watching 2-year-old self being ridiculous in front of the camera :P

13:15 <RomW> lol

15:53 <yoyo[RKN]> yes, now I got the windows app running

15:54 <RomW> cool deal on both

15:54 <yoyo[RKN]> I installed the test app some hours ago and a lot of results are returned already from windows hosts
