I have two analog TV tuners. Both use the chip SAA7130: "kworld pci plus tv" and "ENCORE FMLTV-FM"
They worked ok in 10.04 "out of the box" and now i want to update to a new Ubuntu and I can't get them to work in 12.10.
they are correctly reconized in "dmesg" with their name and model, and registered as
TVTIME: I can find just 2/3 channels, but with poor quality.
I think the card is recognized but the
tuner=XX is not correct... I think this is due to Ubuntu changed
v4l2. Can i come back to
v4l1? Perhaps i can manually change the "tuner=XX" to a correct one?
Then there is another problem:
When i try to use
tvtime with a specific card
tvtime --device /dev/video0 (or
video1) i get
cannot open capture device /dev/video0.
Then I tried
mythtv and when i want to put a card it just said
failed to open.
So i don t know what to think, it seems that there is a privilege problem? (I tried running as root, adding my user to group
video, etc... no luck)
