    USB TV-tuner


    Hi all!
    Here is mu problem:
    I've got a tv-tuner, it works fine in win32 (dual boot), but I can't use it in linux.
    The manufacturer (avermedia) doesn't provide any software for linux. I tried to use mplayer and tvtime but without success. How to access this type of tvtuners without rebooting? Will it work in vmware or pearpc?
    I have the only one usb device in my /dev folder, ttyUSB0, my cell phone. Well, if I run MAKEDEV I get 15 more devices but all of them don't work and disappear after rebooting.
    Any ideas?
    2b|!2b, that is the question

    If substraction add to multiplication you will get a division.

    GDB has a 'break' feature. Why doesn't it have a 'fix' too?

    Have you tried Linux TV? Let us know how you get on - I have a USB DVB TV dongle, but I've yet to attempt to make it work from Linux.

    It works with vmware. Yes, I know the problem is not solved but it is for the first time...

    Ok, It's time for me to make it work. dmesg says it has found a v4l device and has assigned it to /dev/video0. However mplayer says this device does not exist. Fedora kernel already has a v4l driver, w9668cf. My tvtuner is "AverMedia Aver TV USB". Did I miss something? I don't have /dev/v4l . Should it be there?
