I have recently bought a new pc and installed Ubuntu (as you do) all works well but my tv tuner isn't being detected.

The model is a SAA7231, can someone please help me install it. What steps do I need to take firstly to give you all the correct info?

Thanks in advance.


For a bunch of DVB cards you usually need to install the firmware and then a TV application like TVtime:

Unfortunately this is the best source for a driver that I could find, which appears unmaintained. Looks like some guys tried to get it working in SUSE but also it didn't look good.

  • I have winfast TV tuner, tvtime didn't help, can you suggest some driver? Thanks. – umpirsky Jun 3 '11 at 21:11
  • @umprirsky It's probably best to ask a separate question for that card. – Jorge Castro Jun 3 '11 at 21:16
  • That driver is a 404 now. – Seth Apr 29 '13 at 0:42
