    TV Card and Mandrake 9.1

    Hi All,

    I am very very new to linux. I have recently finished installing Mandrake 9.1. Everything is working fine, except one thing. My TV card.

    I have a Chronos Video Shuttle 2 TV/FM card and I am not sure how to get it working with Mandrake 9.1. I'd appreciate it very much if someone could advise me on where to start.

    I have read many web pages on the internet, but they all talk about different things, and are too technical. I am confused!. :-[

    Thank you to anyone who can help.

    Well seems like its on the official mandrake compatibility list....

    Did ya try the Mandrake Control Center? Open up a console and type drakconf and it will ask for your root password. Under the Hardware section is a TV card wizard, try that

    Thanks for a quick reply.

    Yes I tried that. But it says that "No TV card has been detected on your machine" when I click on the DrakxTV setup wizard.

    When I read some web pages they mentioned about 'bttv' and the need to recompile kernel. But I am cautious.

    Dunno what is wrong.

    hmm thats odd... Its a PCI card right? Try doing a:
    cat /proc/pci
    See if ya see anything resembling a TV card there and post it back. I know alot of people here use TV cards, I personally dont have one but will continue to try and help ya cuz youre using a quality distro like Mandrake =)

    Hey, thanks. I appreciate all the help that I can get.

    Here is what I found, something that resembling the TV card.

    Bus 0, device 8, function 0:
    Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev 1).
    IRQ 5.
    Master Capable. Latency=32. Min Gnt=16.Max Lat=40.
    Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe1080000 [0xe10803ff]

    I know my card has a Philips chipset, hmm... something is obviously wrong here. but i don't know how to fix it! ... :-\
