You're requesting to watch TV with VLC - well it is possible. See this answer. TV with VLC Else some illustrations of the other applications: TV with Me-TV TV with Kaffeine

Me TV is a pretty decent under-appreciated application for DVB-* devices. Has an EPG, even recording facilities. Much, much lighter than MythTV. sudo apt-get install me-tv

MythTV can also be configured to run in a window. In the MythTV Frontend, go to Setup > Appearance and the first screen should look similar to the screen below. You can set the size of the menu here, and also if you want the playback to use the same size area. Setting the window border option will add or remove the window border, and setting fixed window ...

You could always use mplayer : mplayer -fs dvb://[card_number@]channel The -fs flag enables full screen mode.

If the upstream Linux master your kernel was built from supports your TV tuner, the driver is already installed. If there is no support in your Linux kernel, but out-of-master support elsewhere, I'd advise you not to bother trying until it gets committed to master. There is a reason it is not in master yet. Digital TV If you are in Europe, you need to use ...

Firmware blobs (including the ones for tv tuner cards) typically live in the linux-firmware-nonfree package. I don't see anything for a CX8800 in the file, but it might be worth installing it and seeing one of the firmware files in there support your tuner. If not you can file a bug on the package.

There is also Gnome's own DVB Daemon. As its name suggests it sits behind the scenes allowing applications to leverage its power. There is a Totem plugin that allows you to use it (though I haven't tested a recent version so I don't quite know how good it is). sudo apt-get install totem-plugins-dvb-daemon That will get all the dependencies too.

1seg is better known as ISDB-T for cellphones, laptops, etc. Therefore, google for ISDB-T USB dongle Ubuntu in order to find available products. You need to load the smsusb and smusbtv kernel modules (if they do not load automatically) and then use a program to scan for the available channels. Look at http://www.dealextreme.com/ for available products.

This list is by no means exhaustive. I would adivse you to try 2 or 3 of the open source options to understand which suits best your needs. MythTV This is the most reputable option for Linux, has been around since 2002 - initially as an alternative to TiVo - and comes with plenty of features. It is released under a GPL licence and available from the ...

If found that the following devices are reported as working with VDR. This usually means that they will work with other software as well: Hauppauge DEC 3000-s Hauppauge Nova USB Technotrend PC-Line USB Kathrein UFP 500 Pinnacle PCTV 400e Pinnacle PCTV 450e Sundtek SkyTV Ultimate DVB-S/S2 I don't know, unfortunately, if you can still buy any of them.

http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Saa713x_devices I used to have a Kworld Xpert TV PVR7134 with the SAA7134-based tvtuner You will need to find card and tuner numbers , for my card it was card=63 tuner=56.

Give a try to TVTime, which may help you to find aerial broadcast signals and with a few options you will be able to make your tvtuner work perfectly with analog signals, the same as cable or digital (digitals not tested by me and may require special hardware). You can install tvtime via synaptic or by dropping the next in a terminal. sudo apt-get install ...

In the past I've had the following work for me: ffmpeg -f oss -ac 2 -ar 48000 -i /dev/audio1 -acodec pcm_s16le -f video4linux2 -s 720x480 -r 3000/101 -i /dev/video0 -sameq -aspect 4:3 -target ntsc-dvd a.vob Of course both the -target and frame rate -r 3000/101 would have to be changed for PAL.

Intel has made a mess of this as the Vt-d functionality can actually live on the chipset. http://www.intel.com/assets/pdf/prodbrief/317312.pdf The Q33 does not have it, but the Q35 does. The criteria for where Vt-d support lives is relative to where your memory controller is. With your CPU, it's not on die, so you have an opportunity to add Vt-d with a ...

Solution on Ubuntu 12.4 kernel 3.2 0. Check your kernel $ uname -r 3.2.0-39-generic-pae 1. Plug in the USB TV Tuner You can check that it is correctly plug in with lsusb $ lsusb Bus 001 Device 002: ID 07ca:a835 AVerMedia Technologies, Inc. 2.

You're halfway there already! You did the right thing by doing an lsusb as that gives you the unique vendor ID for your device. From the ID 15f4:0131 you posted, we can infer it's an Astrometa_DVB-T2. Then you head to LinuxTV.org, which has the best resources on the web for everything Linux and TVs. Unfortunately, the same identical ID (which should be ...

To know if you can get a DVB-T signal in your country, have a look to this nice map. If yes, I suggest you to follow this answer to test it with VLC and create your channels.conf file. Then once you know it works, you can chose an application to watch TV like Me-TV, Kaffeine or any other applications listed in this question. Note 1: till 12.04, Me-TV was ...

There are so many software's that allow you to watch TV on Ubuntu, like TV with Kaffeine, TV with Me-TV ,TV with VLC, TVtime, MythTV, mplayer, Gnome's own DVB Daemon. You could refer to this link for downloads and installation instructions.

Well it's a lot easier than compiling it, here's the result: The firmware did not make the upgrade. A new version has to be installed. LowSky, long term supporter of this driver and Mythtv provides the download and instructions here. He says he will update if there is a change! Thanks to crbnrod on mythbuntu forums for the answer.

I finally got this working, but I didn't (couldn't) use stock Ubuntu. I'm going to write up what I did, but I'm going to put it as an addendum to the official talk page on MythTV. You should be able to find it at the official page when I'm done. Key Points: You need to get and build the drivers from Ceton. They don't come in Ubuntu 12.04 either as a ...

This is for 64 bit drivers, but probably the same solution applies to the 32-bit version by just using x86 instead of x64 in filenames. The solution is inspired in the great work by the guys of linuxtv.org Create a directory called AverTVVolarHX in your home Download C038A827H826_Installer_x64_0.10-Beta_091126.zip from AverMedia WebSite to that directory ...

http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page is the authoritative resource for TV on Linux. See if you can spot your device being supported at http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hardware_Device_Information If not then I'm afraid it's game over unless you can find someone to write you a driver (not trivial) :) My initial quick scan of that site and the ...

Install mythtv. It is a television recording/watching program with many features and network sharing.

You need to create a persistent udev rule, in /etc/udev/ See /lib/udev/rules.d for help on how to configure the specific rule. I am not sure how the rule should exactly look like, however it should be similar to these network rules: # PCI device 0x8086:0x1242 (iwlagn) SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:12:ab:52:44:36", ...

If you are absolutely sure that Bus 002 Device 051: ID 1b80:e421 Afatech is the device which refers to your TV Tuner (mine reads something like: Bus 002 Device 030: ID 2040:7240 Hauppauge WinTV HVR-850 but yours can be that) you should say what are you doing in order to gather the TV Signal, which will be a software or something like MeTV or (my ...
