I use Ubuntu 11.10. I need my Tv Tuner card functioning. Using lspci -vnn I figured out that the chip is:

01:00.0 Multimedia controller [0480]: Philips Semiconductors SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder [1131:7130] (rev 01)

I tried tvtime. But, it's all blue screen says;

Frames too short from uvcvideo Cannot open capture device /dev/vidoe0.

Can somebody help me please ? I looked through so many threads but as a total newbie I can't figure anything.

Please Help me.
