I've installed Centos on my computer with kernell-version 2.6.9-42.ELsmp. Now I managed most things to work. But I can't configure my TV-card. I have a debian system to and there ...

I'm using Tvtime to watch but I get this error.

This is what I get when I type lspci

I just logged in, spent about half an hour typing up a relpy with some hopefully helpfull comments and a couple links, hit the preview button, and got a 'not logged in' message.
I sure won't bother doing that again.

I think the timeout is something like 15 minutes. If you have a really long post, it's best to put it in a text editor, then when you are ready to post you can copy/paste it into the forum for any needing formating and submission.
At least that works pretty well for me...oz

Ok, I managed to open the capture device I guess. When I open tvtime I don't have the error anymore. Now when I try to scan for channels he doesn't find them. My configuration is allright I think, because this is what I get when I verbose:

I've searched for about 5 hours now to make xawtv work and i'm about to give up. I don't get it. When I installed debian I didn't need to do anything. It just worked. If I can't get this working I think I have to go back to another debian-like distribution.

Debian does have an enormous package base. I use my Hauppauge card (although a DVB-T card, not an analogue one like yours) from FC6 with kaffeine, and it needed nothing else.

I discovered when I try to install VLC or Kaffeine. I get this error

I also tried to boot form a knoppix-live-cd and my tv-card works. So the problem lies defenitly by Centos. Maybe I should download Fedora core 6 and just format again.
Actually I have debian on my laptop and I use it for programming and other technical issues and that's great, but I wanted a nice desktop distribution to manage pictures, videos, (ntfs-support ) like windows because my girlfriend is not that familiar with the command line syntax , but i'm trying to step of windows because it drives me crazy sometimes.

Ahhh, CentOS is very much a server installation. It's a rebadge of RedHat Enterprise Linux. For desktop use you're much better off with one of the other distributions you mentioned. Fedora Core 6 I use myself and I like it a lot, but you may want to try Ubuntu or Debian, or Gentoo, or any of the others.
