    TV cards for Slackware


    Does anybody know of a TV card that is known to work with slackware? Right now I have a MSI tv anywhere and it does not work. This and a good web editor is the only reason why I am running windows at all. If I can find a web editer as good as Dream Weaver and a TV card I would throw windows out the window.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    PS I have tried Quanta and Bluefish; these are fine editors, but I thing Dreamweaver edged them out so I am looking for something a little more if possible

    The ATI TV Wonder works well in Linux. Also, many Hauppage cards work well. Just be sure you check to see what chipset is on them then google for it. Check the section reguarding Video for Linux in a make menuconfig. The docs for those options are very helpful with what TV cards will/won't work in Linux. Also google.com/linux will help immensely.

    i also got Terratec Cinergy 600 to work, but not 'out of the box'....

    anyway cards with BT878 chip should work fine, and those with SAA7134 need some manual tuning...

    I built a DVR using the Hauppauge 350 card on Slackware 9.1. Wasn't working out of the box, but it works great after setup....

    Have you tried running Dreamweaver through wine?
