I have a TV tuner that is just getting started working in linux:
This is very good news Will be nice not to have to use Windows on my media PC anymore.
Here is the link to V4L where they have another link to the firmware that I don't know what to do with http://www.ivtvdriver.org/index.php/Cx18
Now, I can download the bz2, read the readme, get the firmware but...where do I put the firmware, before or after compiling? Getting lost about there. I have compiled modules before and modprobed and set them up to load, things like that. But never dealt with firmware before.
Could someone explain "down" to me? I don't have linux on that machine yet. I could use either debian or PCLOS. If someone thinks it would be easier to get this going on one distro rather than the other please let me know. If deb, testing or stable or sid?
