almost a msi TV- <at> nywhere the TV-Tuner card Mega PC

I got a card for my Mega msi pc, and have bought a mega pc tv tuner 
card(looks like a TV- <at> nywhere only missing the radio, and has Irda connected 
internally) and have become more than a little confused, this card claims to 
be a cable tv card, yet has a standard rf connector and can just plug my 
house arial into this. I have tried to do this and currently am getting 
snooker in fuzzy(speckeled*shrug*) black and white with no audio. Although I 
am not sure If I am selecting the right PAL options(there are far too many). 
If I am being stupid and need a cable box then It would be nice to know.

Re: PCTV pro (red pcb)

the latest kernels don't require you to delete tvaudio anymore...

i saw it now uses a flag called use_tvaudio or something...

but the sound is not as good as with earlier kernels i think, the
picture is still bad but colours seem to be better though.

no sound with PCTV stereo (saa7134)

I'm trying to use one of those new PCTV with saa7134, that I bought here, in Italy. 
I'm running Debian testing and I tried many kernel configurations:

2.6.5-debian
2.6.5 + latest kraxel patch
2.6.5 + latest bytesex snapshot
2.6.6-rc3

Until now I couldn't manage to get sound from tv channels. I hear only loud
white noise.

I tried 
- with the internal audio cable connecting the card to the integrated audio chip
on the mobo
- with speakers directly connected with the PCTV.

Under WinXP the card works perfectly.

The boot-time output from dmesg is quite good: 

Linux video capture interface: v1.00

None whatsoever. No error messages. I read somewhere that ATI cards have
problems with V4L. But I dont really know about that. The videodev and
the pwc.ko (ie my webcam drivers) are loaded properly. So no clue whats
going on.

The output of loading the modules is as below - 
Linux video capture interface: v1.00
pwc Philips PCA645/646 + PCVC675/680/690 + PCVC730/740/750 webcam module version 8.12 loaded.
pwc Also supports the Askey VC010, various Logitech QuickCams, Samsung MPC-C10 and MPC-C30,
pwc the Creative WebCam 5, SOTEC Afina Eye and Visionite VCS-UC300 and VCS-UM100.
drivers/usb/core/usb.c: registered new driver Philips webcam

So what could be the problem?

Re: no sound with PCTV stereo (saa7134) SOLVED

I'm self-answering.

The trick is forcing "bCarrierMode = cIntercarrier" into the file tda9887.c

The problem seems to be the incorrect detection that leaves "t->pinnacle_id =
UNSET". Forcing pinnacle_id to the right value (1 or 7 for PAL, 5 or 6 for NTSC)
is an equivalent solution.

This is only a small tweak for quickly resolving the problem, waiting for a new
patch..

What matters is that my PCTV sound is finally on !!!

No Picture with TV card, only newer versions

Hi folks

First thanks to all the developers, I had very much fun with v4l up till
now :)

But since the last 2.6 kernel versions it doesn't work anymore.
Everything should work fine up to the point it should show something. So
channels can be detected - but if they are, it gives up. tvtime gives me
the following error message:
videoinput: Can't read frame. Error was: Input/output error (0).
videoinput: Can't read frame. Error was: Input/output error (0).
videoinput: Can't read frame. Error was: Input/output error (0).

cx88xx sound...

I don't know that this will help for sure, but did (does) 
work for me.  I've got the TV2000XP Expert.  Works well 
enough with the exception of channel 4 and 5 (ntsc / 
us-cable) which seem to have a signal strength problem(?).  
The remote isn't working but that will come in time, I am 
sure :-).

Sound is pretty much consistent now, but initially and now 
still very occasionally I loose the sound, what I did to 
get it and now to recover it is to switch the input from 
television to conposit or svideo and then back to 
television and that seems to fix it.

Hope this helps!
